Need I Say More?
By: Dadisi Mwende Netifnet
About the Book
I wrote my first poem one night in Atlanta, Georgia in March, 1984. That was the night I fell in love with my imagination. Writing poetry allowed me to understand my most intimate thoughts and feelings. Thoughts and feelings that were mine alone until I wrote them and shared them with my readers.
Over the years there have been many ideas and feelings. Feelings about God, pain, joy, love and the Black reality. Through my writing, I hope that my readers will discover something unknown to them and enlightening to their minds.
