bad ghey

poetry

oh no

what did you wear

not those skinny jeans

with the red hair

oh no

what are you watching

tell me that’s not really boxing

there’s rules to this if you’re gonna be true to this

oh yasss

sissy that walk

talk down on others who look nothing like you

flaunt your ego and listen to Madonna it’s true

only if you’re a certain type

oh yasss

no fats no fems

don’t believe the hype

shoot your shot, might be just your type

who are we kidding

the beautiful ones do the bidding

I’m just bitter, don’t mind me

ignore all constructs and just be free.

fairy don’t you weep

poetry

shook up and scared

want to call someone

feels like no one cares

they say pray on it

don’t let your mind stay on it

coming out

easy for some, harder for others

mixed messages in media

i wanna use Expedia

to get away far away

fairy don’t you weep, you talented

kind, original blooming orchid

your tribe is waiting

anticipating, getting to know you

witness

love and joy

for you are a gift to the world fairy boy.

Happy Birthday to me 😊

poetry

year 38 is here!

universe says another year my dear

Suddenly it clicks

show love, be love

blessed

GO!

poetry

kicking down the door

my heart was meant to endure

love joy passion

i found it in fashion to

be down tears of a clown

maybe me maybe we

have to make it

just can’t shake it

Uncompromising my will to be great

having to shake the fears, doubts

freedom is near, so close I’m wearing it

I’m speaking it into the world

showtime!

Stop the B.S 

life, poetry

I say this to myself 

As I take the stage

Fight your fears 

Recite your favorite poems

Be adventurous 

Sing that song (even if you aren’t great)

Take pictures 

Of yourself 

Love yourself 

Look in the mirror 

Smile

Don’t take it so seriously 

Hell you write the lines

Just follow your writings…..

When you know you know 🤷🏽‍♂️

life, poetry, poetry creative writing

so bright 

wanna shine 

i step back

because of “what they think”

creative life

my own limitations 

are blinding me

can’t won’t see

compliments from peeps 

watching stars Glaring

trying to be free

of the old me

wipe the mirror dude

see yourself 

be yourself 

walk into the light

u have the fight

gonna get it right 

someday is tonight

while sounds of blackness 

optimistic plays in the background

creative non-fiction, life, memoir, poetry


Charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent

Survival of the fittest in the world today 

It’s all in me, can I let it out? 

Downplayed, afraid of what others may say

How can he Radiate such, such beauty, 

Such grace. I mean he only takes pictures of his

Face; body isn’t perfect but folks feel he’s 

Conceited because he doesn’t talk to

Everyone; Arrogant because he knows what he 

Wants; speaks his mind didn’t stutter one time

Truly feeling he’s one of a kind

Took some time for him to find

The jewel that lies inside 

Buried under hurt, dirt, seaweed, broken glass 

Honey, insecurity and neglect.

Gentle in speech, large in spirit 

I’m on my way…to be continued

Step into it, be fabulous dahling….

essay, life, memoir

                                {Including Me}
                              

     

Told by a co-worker you should have more confidence in yourself 

Confidence doesn’t come easy, based on the belief that if I think too highly people will make it there mission to take me down

Which brings the point that people are not thinking of me as much as I think of me

People have said “you’re handsome”, but would people actually say “you ugly”?

I overthink, I criticize, I realize thats who I am 

If I’m gifted at making acquaintances , own it

If people want to see me smile, do it 

If the leadership at my job wants me to lead and that’s the end goal anyway, don’t shrink and automatically recommend someone else

If you fail, that means you tried right?

In 2017, I’ve gotta step into my greatness and claim my place in this world no backing down 

Most people want me to thrive and I should want that for myself 

And I can’t do that wishing to be someone else 

I step into this place, the table has been set

Now muthafucka you better eat…..
