invisible by guilt Written by Ziibi click to enlarge care for a reading 45.043368 -92.821871 Advertisements 3 thoughts on “invisible by guilt” A very strong poem. Reply River, I could not help but to think about the great African American writer Ralph Ellison’s book “The Invisible Man” after reading your poem. Your poem speaks to the pain of being ascribed by society as “less than” people. No one can hear the reading of that poem without being touched by the centuries of hurt so poetically stated in your work as well as the strength that one acquires as a result of the experience. I have learned to look at my blackness as a blessing that has given me a kind of vision and awareness about life that can only be realized by those who have walked the earth invisible and peered deeply into the human soul and found meaning. Thank you River~ Reply Thank you! 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
