Everything is Poetry. Every Movement. Every Breath. Every Story. All words left unsaid. Poems for the living. Poems for the unborn. Poems for the dead. Stillness and silence become songbirds, giving the speaker freedom from fear. Reflections, taking night. Resurrections, breaking day. Rhythms and rituals binding spirits to time. Praise for gifts of space, released from the body. We are what we say and how we say it, manifesting realities we create through our sound vibration. There is Earth without man. There is no World without Poetry. We are all poets by design.
Celebrate life. Live your words.

THE AGE OF REVISION (2008)
The Age of Revision was self-published in 2008 by the poet and performing artist Molina Speaks. He was known as Molina Soleil at the time. Equally influenced by urban Hip-Hop and Latin American poetic classics, this chapbook is about identity and transformation, systemic violence, love, cultural shifts, and spirits. Poems like No More Heroes strike at the underpinnings of constructed reality. The Letters to the Moon will make you fall in love.
