Start your day off right with a delicious poem to go along with your first meal! Catch my poem "Soul Food" featured on Poetry Breakfast's website on October 23rd! I wrote this poem after pondering the emotional connection my people have with soul food, while walking from the grocery store one day. I had seen a lot of condemnation regarding our decision to continue an unhealthy diet despite its adverse health effects. I realized that the criticisms, like most, didn't fully factor in historical and psychological contexts. This poem was my attempt to include those important components into the conversation.
