I recently went to the Black Maria Film Festival here in West Orange. A motion poem is a combination of a poem and a short film.

How Do You Raise A Black Child is the film that was selected for the film festival. This poem is about the fear and concerns black parents have for their children. Here is the film I saw at the festival.

When I Let Go

When I let go I will be free!

Free of anger, hurt, and shame.

Free from the guilty because once I wasn’t strong enough.

When I let go I won’t feel anger at myself for not standing up.

When I let to the hurt will vanish and be replaced by forgiveness.

Forgiving myself for the shame I feel for not standing up  for myself.

Now I can be free because I know that the weakness I felt was strength.

Strength that not only helped me endure the pain but helped me fight and become free.

It was like seeing it for the first time. Find  place where you live and take a picture. Look at the picture and ask it to tell you a story then write that story town.

Finish the story. What is winter never ended? Write a story about how your characters would survive in this new world.
