Since the beginning, poetry ran like blood through the veins of Semaj. While just a girl in the 2nd grade, she crafted one of her first poems:  “War is a bad thing. It is also a sad thing. You look out to the field and many bodies lay still, next thing you know you are attending to someone’s will…” The now, poet laureate of the City of Flint, has been described by East Village Magazine as “…a poet, a priestess, a force of nature, of anger and love…” Semaj Brown is a Broadside Lotus Press Poet who is recognized by the Academy of American Poets, NY, NY.
