The Butterfly effect ?>

The Butterfly effect

We as humans, especially women tend to always see the butterfly while someone is still a caterpillar. The problem with that is, we may not be meant to be in that person’s life to see when they actually become a butterfly While it’s ok to acknowledge someone’s potential, it should not be the basis behind staying in someone’s life longer than we are meant to be. Seeing the possibility of potential should not be a foundation for any kind of…

3 reasons why you should tell YOUR story ?>

3 reasons why you should tell YOUR story

I completely understand that no everyone wants to be an author, a legendary writer or want to be any kind of famous. That’s perfectly fine. I also believe that in some way shape or form you should tell your story. Many people never get a chance to tell their story and when they die, their story is told by friends, family, co-workers, enemies and everybody else. The details and memories shared about them are just fragments of their entire story….

The Black Mona Lisa

NO, there’s no utterly blank stare in these eyes Only what’s left when stripped away are the perfections and lies Beauty in its more purified state Absolutely stunning outside its perceived hate The absolution of my black is beautiful, a scene that society tries to forever mitigate Yet, profound strength rests upon this face The boldness of her beauty signifies her defiance against anything in her way That look of courage she gives to tell US to live to fight…

Emotional Shut-down

Out of service!! Screams the department of emotions We are closed indefinitely!! Our owner said we were keeping her from thinking intelligently Sorry we have been shut down Permanently exiled to the far outer parts of town Our owner said our department was no longer important, our relevancy had depleted. She told us pack up all of your stuff and make sure every file is deleted. This department no longer exists. We jobless out this bitch! We were too chaotic…

Girl Interrupted ?>

Girl Interrupted

They always come at the least expected time, when everything’s calm, when I’m doing just fine   Then out of nowhere they creep up slowly without warning or sign   Before I know, their all rushing in, as I’m thinking to myself, NOT AGAIN   Next thing I know hell breaks loose within. I’m fighting another war I’m not sure I can win   No longer dormant, my world is turned upside down Constantly I’m going from a frown to…

Icarus

So bright and glowing, I’ve dreamt about you my whole life Close my eyes and envisioned how you’d feel every night I’ve felt your warmth from far away but I long to be close to you So bad that I’ll do whatever it takes to do time passes by and I perfect he idea of getting close to you as I psychically can Do what has not been done been done by any other man As I get closer to…

Live in the Moment

What happens after the moment? When it’s done and a thing in the past? Are you glad that you came out with a story or upset because it didn’t last? What happens after the moment? Did you long for it to be more than a moment? Did you want that moment to create a series of endless moments? What happens after the moment? When the noise ceases and its quiet? Are you at peace or does it kill you to…

I am Love ?>

I am Love

  Snippet from my youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWIRuXJKYjA&feature=youtu.be I am used and abused and mis-represented, I’m confused with infatuation and blamed for hearts dented. I am said but not meant, people try to build me on sand rather than cement I am not understood because I am often lost in the sea of misinterpretations pushed to the back of the mind in the midst of giving into temptation I am spoken as leisurely as if I’m the word hi and even…

Words of encouragment

We were here since the ships arrived; Surviving the whips and chains wiping the blood and sweat from our eyes We were here in the darkest times singing our negro hymns… Praying to our God, who is the same God today, to deliver us from our masters sins We were here when the constitution considered us 3/5 ths of a person We are still here knowing america has never corrected that conversion. We were here when the dogs were let…

Reliving the same story, different scenario ?>

Reliving the same story, different scenario

It seems as though the black community relives the same tragic story over and over with no end in sight, beginning with Emmit Till and currently Alton Sterling And philando Castile along with many other countless killings of black boys and men. Some come by the hands others in our communities and MOST by those sworn in to serve and protect us. Imagine being a character in a video game such a Grand theft Auto. You start the game at…
