Unknown ~ have requested strength for this – Author Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.

May never know what happened to my daughter

That the possible charge could have been manslaughter

But the case is still unsolved

Difficult not knowing who was involved

Was just getting to know her and share

She had a zest for life and flair

Poetry was a part of her life and is part of mine

Writing these words will make her shine

It is a tribute to who she was and the effect on me

Continuing to form the man I am to be

The circumstances then was out of my immaturity

of not being with the Father

Doing my own thing and it wasn’t even a bother

Denying the right to embrace the wrong

Inviting the sin to come along

Not in her life for a very long time

Her mother did a great job of raising her so beautifully to her prime

Carried around the guilt of not being there

and realized that I had been forgiven

So scribing this piece I will always be driven

To honor and love the memory of her,

Taylor Rose

  2. Daddy, that was beautiful and I know Taylor would be proud. At least for a little while a bond was created and questions answered. Taylor lives in through God and your words!


  3. Nolan love your transparency in this poem. Thank you for sharing this with me. Would love for you to talk to the kids where I volunteer about poetry and how it has given you an outlet to vent and heal.


  4. My apologies about the post to Nolan. I appreciate the fact you featured a male poet. I would like to have more young men to get involved with poetry to help them connect with their inner self.
