‘Tell Her She’s Lovely’, the origins of the poem

‘Tell Her She’s Lovely’ is the poem that inspired my anthology.

I remember after a normal day at my 9 to 5 in Brooklyn, I was on the NJ transit heading home. My commutes one way were roughly two hours, assuming there were no delays. Which, when I think back at my one year commuting, that was hardly the case.

I just remember how instinctively I was in a state where I was seeking external validation from certain relationships and quite honestly wasn’t receiving any. In the quest to express my frustration I opened my iPhone’s notepad application and started scribbling away random words.

Suddenly words such as “flower”, “sea”, “heat”, and “world” were only second nature to me. My name means Earth after all.

I just don’t know till this day how this invisible force told me to post this one poem on my social media three years ago. But when I did I was so taken a back that people actually liked the poem!

I was told the next day by peers, “how long did it take you to write this poem?”. If I had to put a time on it I’d say from the time I wrote the poem to the time I posted on IG probably took 30-40 minutes max.

I truly think that when you have this innate message you want to bring forth it flows so naturally. You don’t have to force anything, because the passion and truth is there.
