A Poem for Nikki – Author Damon E. Johnson


In search of clarity and reason, I

once imagined that we had a conversation

in which I asked what inspired you.


And in typical fashion, you

served up a classic rhyme as

tasty as a pot of soul stirred with truth.


I wrapped myself up inside your phrases,

got lost in your words, and

found my purpose.
