About Michelle Phillips

​      I write because I want to uplift and educate people.  With each piece, my aim is to either make people laugh, or to eradicate negative stereotypes about African-Americans.

     Whether it's through contemporary poetry, non-fiction books or educational material, I hope that what I share encourages people, open up their minds to embrace all cultures, and accept the differences that make up the diverse world that we live in today. 


Committed to changing the way the world looks at race.

People are hurting

People are hurting

 Scratching your head in unbelief,

wondering why did it have to come to this.

It was hard to grasp,

your mind racing,

trying desperately to comprehend and think.

As you are sprawled out,

sleep still in your eyes,

you stretch.

Putting your phone back down, you pulled the covers back.

WTF!!!!

You just cannot believe it.

You just do not get it.

If only you had what they had,

things would have ended up differently.

Why?

Why?

“Damn!” you say out loud.

Hard to understand what made people feel this way.

Man! If I were them…you think out loud.

Not sure how to finish that thought,

not sure if it was in your head,

or even if you had actually said it out loud.

The pain their loved ones must be feelin’.

“Damn!” You mutter again.

All the ooh’s and ahh’s;  

many on Twitter were in disbelief.

You yawned, and sat up,

finally placed your feet on the floor;

silently prayed for their loved ones,

 to find some type of peace;

lifted yourself out of bed,

heading to the bathroom door.
