My Inspiration


Original Photography by Y. Shabazz

My inspiration is you,

for all the days of rain when I patiently waited for sun.

Or when the last resort was to pack up and run, afraid to say it then…

But my inspiration is you.

My inspiration was you when bars were my walls, and tears were my rest,

the world on my back, and hate on my chest,

My inspiration was you.

On cold nights and long days, when a heart breaks and minds stray,

when the world’s wave washed my love away,

My inspiration was you.

Even when you need, and want, and cry, and laugh,

and when the whole world seems to leave you last,

Look inside because…

My inspiration is you.
