I sing myself and all my Caucasian friends are nice at NAMI Mercer NJ.

I’ve come a long way. I think I’ll have my memoir finished by the time I turn forty. I’ll also have my second Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education by age 40. I sing myself and my friends at NAMI acknowledge me. Everybody knows I’m the Black one and they are mostly all friendly with me and treat me like they like me. I find the people at NAMI Mercer NJ to be great people for the most part. Even when we talk race everybody says “Ayesha you are doing a good job”. They all congratulate me about going to college and pursuing my goals. I have good friends there. They all know I’m Black and I sing myself. Nobody would be mean or treat me poorly. The people are mostly very nice and seem to genuinely like me! But most people would say “Ayesha sings herself” That’s contemporary and it makes me feel so cool! I love dressing up for the Just Friends Halloween party every year I’ve gone as everything from a nun to a Lawless Lady. This year I’m going as the American Dream and I’m thankful for Black American Poetry!
