Ebony Blankets, Wanderer's first collection, is an unapologetically pro-black collection that serves as a reminder and testament to the greatness, beauty, potential and so much more of the black community. The works in this collection are meant to uplift and challenge the black community, speak its perspectives into the atmosphere and help ensure that these lives matter in this world. One poem, one ear and one set of eyes at a time, Wanderer plans to help unify this troubled world; and this collection is a start.
New beginnings feel like loss; like vomiting feel like meal wasted.
Been enduring can't waste this
In the mirror forced to face
that I do not recognize-- that they try convince me I do not love.
It is hard to love what you do not see.
I feel seen by what should be my past. Love it must be.
New beginnings mean journey; mean finding old me as if we exist anywhere anymore.
We be lost. We be potential wasted.
