Notice of absence from LIZ

I am darkness, I am light, I will never be a "type". You can't put me in a box; don't hold me to stereotypes.


And, of course I can be nice, but don't try me, I can bite. You can fight me all you want, but the truth just doesn't lie.


I am world, I am raw, can be sweet, sometimes shy. Good intentions on my mind, but my boundaries are high.


You can't force me, I won't hide; but I'll always choose to rise. See, I know who I am; took me years to find my rhyme.


You can question all you want, I won't fit into your slot.

                      Let your Poetry define
                      your undeniable worth!
                      Your words make me want to lift weights
                      or do dreamscape pullups
                      or settle for drinking water...
                      but drink a cup all-in-one-go
                      then pant theatrically
                      like I just finished a marathon
                      your poetry infuses me
                      with so much excess energy

                      • LIZ

I'll teach you a thing or two about weight lifting! I promise I'll go......sort of....easy on you! Lol πŸ˜‰ Honestly, you're the best! YOU, sir, inspire ME!! ✨️
