ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I was born and raised in the beautiful island of Jamaica for 12 years. Then I lived in New York City for 3 years, until I somehow ended up back in Jamaica and lived there for 5 years. (By now you should have guessed my age) I am currently a college student in the US majoring in sociology and a minor in English. I love writing very much but since I returned to the US I have found it rather difficult to re-ignite that flame and passion that I had for writing. Hopefully as I post my work in Storymania, I can receive constructive criticism, or reviews of my work. I welcome negative reviews of my work because I feel this can help me to make my writing better. Things like, “this poem sucks!” or “I don’t understand anything you are talking about in this writing,” I welcome with open arms.
I have traveled around, and have numerous experiences as it relates to the environment in which I’ve lived in. I admire diversity and culture, and hopefully someday, my admiration and interest in the various ways in which people live their lives can influence me more profoundly to reach out to people. I feel that writing is a way to start and gives me a chance to cut across borders and transcend across the continents, across ethnicity and race. Especially since I attend a university that is historically white, and 90% of the students are white middle-class Americans and I myself is of African descent. My passion for diversity increases the more I am in this kind of environment.

She Bawled
Jahri Ann

She bawled
   She bawled
She crawled
Not another, not another
So she fell on her knees
Though she wasn’t Begging please
Held her hand out to the above
         Cried
The way of life had lied
Fell to the ground
Atmosphere of no sound
Sobbing, throbbing
Heartfelt, sorrowful tears
Down heart tears weren’t drops dripping from her cheeks
They were floods and she was drowning in them

Her wails echoed the whole-of-the-world
They looked in her direction
   Then after
They paid no attention
A love taken away
As she viewed the body of her diminished boyfriend
Once so vivacious
Yet now lifeless young black man
 No words to say
Only from this heart, that never moves lips
Words cloaked up inside
Only for looking onlookers…
Who still never grasp truly the
Words her heart say

For she bawled, she crawled
She use to tell him
If you don’t have a weapon you will have no weakness
If you have a weapon, latter is your weakness
Couldn’t find enough tears to cry
So she rode a wave in the ocean
To let out these bleak and black emotions
To express her devotions
To the black man she loves
Right back to Africa
She found enough tears
Enough to relinquish all fears
