DL:  What are some of your reflections during the COVID-19 pandemic?
TW: This virus is showing us that we need to lean on God about everything that is going on right now. See my poem about self-distancing. 

DL: In celebration of National Poetry Month (April), can you share with us a few of your poems?
TW: Here are two poems I would like to share:

Rules of LOVE

Be honest.
Be truthful.
If you love someone or somebody don't mess over them.
Don't lie.
Be THERE when that person cry
Don't betray.
Don't creep.
Don't bit the hands that feed you and who is trying to help you.
Be THERE when that person is down and needs someone.
Don't abuse the love.
Don't let anybody talk bad about the person you love.
If that person messing up tell them about it because if you really love that person you will always tell the truth.
Truth hurts yea I know, but if someone tells you the truth about yourself that means they care.
Love that person unconditionally.
Don't hold your feelings back.
Don't distance yourself from that person.
Don't spit in that person's face.
Don't do them wrong or leave that person all alone.
Don't cheat.
Don't steal.
Don't put pain in their heart.
Lift that person up.
Help build with that person.
Get to know that person.
Know what that love and don't love.
Know the favorite color, what that person likes to do.
Know everything about that person.
Know how to make that person happy and glad.
Know HOW to cheer that person up when he or she is down.
Don't scheme.
Don't judge what that person doesn't have.
Don't look down on that person.
Share feelings and secrets if you love that person.
Don't forget that person when you blow up.
While fighting admits that both are wrong and come back together.
Don't leave that person in a bad place.
Be there through the pain.
If that person acting up, tell him or her about it.
Talk to one another on the phone or text that person. Communication is the key.
Care about that person's lives and where is that person heading in their life.
Don't leave that person beaten nurse that person back to health.
Don't play WITH each other feelings.
Don't play with each other hearts.
Don't let each other down.
Stick up for one another.
Be THERE through thick and THIN.


Self-Distancing

Everyone is dying because of this virus, taking care of the yourself supposed to be your priority, now it has to come to this. The government should not have to tell you to wash your hands or clean yourself. Back in the days if I didn't clean myself I would have got a whipping with a Belt. Now, the government is full of crap and the president is selfish. Certain people feed off ignorance and stupidity so, therefore, speaking the truth is useless. Rest in peace to the folks that died, because of this virus. Shouldn't nobody tell you to wash your hands in every aspect? People are so worried about themselves and realizing their hygiene and how they carried themselves is affecting others, but everything starts at home. Shame that we have to distance ourselves, because of nasty people, but I will love from a distance.

DL: Where can folks learn more about your poetry?

National Poetry Month's Feature: Poet Virginia Davis

Poet’s Bio: Virginia Davis is a mother, poet, middle school English teacher, blogger, coffee lover, and author of four titles. She has been writing since the ninth grade, when she started using poetry and journaling as positive outlets while coping with the heavy emotions that came with the death of her oldest brother and not feeling accepted by her peers. Since then, writing has been her saving grace and has served as her one safe space where she feels free to truly be her most authentic self.  

She has self-published all of her books; her most recent title is a poetry compilation entitled The Mending, and it chronicles her poignant and victorious journey from heartache to healing. It is a poetic depiction of her choosing to take her broken pieces and transform them into something beautiful--art, and its most glorious form. Her first young adult novel will be released in the summer of 2020 and she is working on part two of The Mending. 
Virginia has a BA in English from Morgan State Un…
