We read Nikki Giovanni’s Ego Trippin’ this week, and used it as inspiration to talk about ourselves, using metaphors and comparison to celebrate all the facets of who we are.
I’m so Toxic
I am hot as the summer
the color purple will
let people know I’m royalty.
I am the air in your lungs,
I attract love like Paris.
But I’m so toxic I’m worse than
ebola, I will make you sicker than
the plague. I am free like a bird
Nothing can hold me back.
