"I am intellectually impressed by your diversity and ability to impregnate my psyche with thoughts that are healthy for my spirit.

What Poetry & Music Means to Onney...
"Poetry and song defines the intellectual capacity of ones being. It is the prophecy of one's thoughts, dreams, hopes and aspirations. Poetry can encompass many things, such as being an inspiration for freedom of speech through the art of writing and spoken-word. Poetry involves the creation of a broader imagination while targeting the reality of real life circumstances. Poetry is the art of music and spoken word"...Onney
