A Dedication to Toni Morrison, Author, Writer, Activist and Legend

Written by DaKiara


A legend was born


You left us to mourn

Toni Morrison paved the way

For a lot us authors today


Birthed a degree


Finally, free


The Bluest Eye

Indeed, made me cry

The first of many

Your accolades were plenty

There is no denying

Your happiest times

Included writing

You had a love for words

A voice we heard

And pleasure was taken

In reading your words

My tribute to you

Is to always be true

And honor my gift

Many souls to lift

Finally, at peace

Your soul has been released


You joined the Divine
