“Wake up, it’s time” by Kamaya Finn

Wake up, it’s time

It’s time to wake up
Wake up, it’s time.

Kamaya Finn

Kamaya Finn is a young poet and writer based in the Washington, D.C. area. She is currently a sophomore at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in the Class of 2021. Before moving to Washington, DC, she lived in Havertown, Pennsylvania–the town that inspires most of her pieces. In 2016, she was awarded the second place prize in the Haverford Township Human Relations Commission’s Creative Expression Contest, and in 2019, she presented for the first time in the showcase titled, “VALID I.D.” Outside of writing, Kamaya excels at painting landscapes and enjoys studying fashion and programming languages such as JavaScript in her free time.

This poem was generated from poet Derrick Weston Brown’s irrepressibly inventive creative writing class at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Triple dap to Mr. Brown for teaching the form and helping to spread the skinny on the Skinny.
