In 💔 with your fav rapper

poetry

I had to getaway

the road was my muse

I refused to settle

i then met him

he paid my bills for a year

said anything you want my dear

don’t tell

it never fails

to go this route…

No feelings involved

he was my ticket here

he told me don’t worry

nothing to fear

against my better judgment

thought of him as my husband

and then everything went to hell

it started with needing bail

for what you say

I was dumb okay…

I should’ve never went announced

to be unexpected and he was undetected

was a problem for him

There was a fight

I tried with all my might

to leave him/it alone but

I felt beholden to him

saving my life in so many ways

but life needs to be golden for me

without him.

personal holiday

essay, memoir

“It’s time for the good times
Forget about the bad times, oh yeah
One day to come together to release the pressure
We need a holiday” – Madonna

on this day nine years ago, i revealed a personal truth to my parents

like pressure off your brain it was needed. My fam is low-key so it wasn’t the

biggest deal to them, but to me my world was a bit lighter . I’m proud. I’m blessed.

ups and downs both abound but I’m still trucking. Haven’t found my forever but

there’s hope. so while people celebrate the holiday of our fallen soldiers, i celebrate

the holiday of my fallen facade, lies I told to belong so long ago.

trouble in the world today

poetry

rage boiling

you’re offended by everything

when will you smile again

go through this earth like a child again

no need for an answer

hate takes over like a cancer

re-center, play all day

balance, rinse and repeat.

you’re only human.

Realizations

poetry

moving fast

some friends stay in the past

new friends emerge

on the verge of a breakthrough

universe see’s you

in the background helping

clear out the clutter

there’s nothing better

than realizing your worth.

blues ballad

poetry

It’s hard

coming, going, never knowing

romantic love

sure there’s lust

but you can’t trust

everyone.

I open my mind and heart

that’s where I’ll start

maybe one day?

Vessel Opening Pt 1

poetry

sitting, standing, lying down

the world still goes round

i’m searching, i’m contemplating

patiently waiting for

me to see what others see

bask in that glow

i’m not my thoughts

negative some(most) times they are

learning and growing

i’m yearning to who i am

forgiveness, grace, deep but buried

love shows as the crowd roars

sometimes love is poetry

writing thoughts out…hard

but when it comes a flowing

that’s love

i loved myself today

did you?

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!

Just BE

poetry, poetry creative writing

true authentic you

Courage waking up everyday

blasted by what the world feels and or says

eclectic outlook, thinking outside the box

open mind not locked, takes time

smiling cause i know i can.
