I’m Covered!

The wolf pack trying to eat me alive
I’m a kingdom kid born to thrive
The Lord will destroy any evil plan you contrive
He’ll reverse that destructive bus you drive
Trying to set me up and throw me under
I am not trying to steal your perceived thunder,
I see my future, this ain’t my life dream
I aspire to achieve greater things
You can have this playing corporate schemes.
The crab in the barrel is your home team
I refuse to stoop to your level and give in.
The Lord is my Shepard and this fight I’ll win!

Unclaimed Baggage!!!

I’m unloading

To prevent exploding

Overloading on the guilt, hurt, shame

Heartache, fear, disappointment, stress, and pain

Baggage I refuse to claim,

The carry on, satchel, knapsack, pouch, attache’, loaded brief case to much to maintain!

Those things don’t contain my name

Property tag unfound

The heaviness weighs you down

Makes you drown, pound after pound

Due to turbulence of life above ground

I’m no longer bound

Calm and Ease surrounds

as the internal cabin pressure decreased

I exhaled and released

Sought and received inner peace

Harmony, joy, love, patience, and compassion increased

Those negative totes I left behind

Didn’t even bother to go to that line

Those saddle bages were never really mine

I was misdirected and followed the wrong signs

became misaligned

So i had to stop and rewind

Seize and eliminate the internal plight

Board a new uplfiting mentally serene flight

So airy, pristine and light

Spirit Reviving, soul energizing, soaring to new heights

Celestial landing right on time

My thoughts, mind, and emotions realigned

Well-being altitude undefined

Refreshed and Renewed, thriving feeling so divine

Basking in his glory!! Alive and doing just fine!!! …

QuickSand

QuickSand

I’ve tried to reach out, I’ve done all I can
Sincerely extending a helping hand
But wow you’re drowning in quick sand
You’re in too deep more than what I realized
That glamorous cover up was your disguise
It’s one big mess after mess
I don’t deal in drama and can’t do stress
Wow, its real high above your waist
It’s drowning you so fast and I refuse to keep up with the pace
Its drains me of all my energy
I cannot succumb to the negativity
It’s been real, I will hold on to some of the positive memories
Wow, it’s got you moving so fast
I cannot hold on, so on this one I will pass
It leaves me speechless; all I can do is gasp
I’m letting go now, i will intentionally lose my grasp.

I must withdraw and release you
So that I don’t fall in too.
I can barely breathe when I’m with you
I must relinquish my hold, loosen my grip
I cannot stop you now; sometimes you got to fall and trip
Slip and slide, a wild tumultuous ride
I cannot stride
It sucks, pulls you in and drags you down
It weighs too much for me to hang around
I see you drowning going in very deep
That quicksand is very steep
It’s pulling so fast and you don’t even know it
Drowning you daily, you won’t outgrow it
I tussled, tugged I reached and I pulled
I’ve taken several steps back when I saw your evil wolves
Dressed up as sweet little sheep
You really fooled me
But my third eye never sleeps
So right now I’ve decided to let go and press release
It takes too much to hold on so
I must say good bye, adios, peace.

Visioning a Dream

A light, a tunnel, a stumbling block
no flashlight for directions but the school of hardknocks..
trial and error a strenous test
faith and determination to go beyond the rest.
Belief and perservance will get you through life’s challenges and let downs facing you.
Power, motivation, grace, a true desire to live your dream.
Never give up your reality is closer than it may seem.

Our Angel

Our angel is so sweet,so gentle and spreads its wings to fly
Our angel will live forever in our hearts and never die
Our angel is so generous and loves all
Our angel is there to catch us when we fall
Our angel is so precious and so very dear
Our angel was bold and kept God near
Our angel was a mother to many and all
She cared and comforted those big and small
Our angel on this great day she was born
Our angel so beautiful, cuddly, and warm
Our angel took many in and gave them shelter and food
Our angel had her own set of rules.
Oh I can hear that joyous loud laugh and giggle
Never complicated, our angel kept things straight and simple
Our angel shared her wisdom in her own way
She would correct those who tried to roam and go astray
Heaven called back one of its angels because God needed help
So many young children and people he couldn’t do it by himself.
Oh how we miss you my dear Auntie
I know we will see you again in eternity, so save a spot for me.

Coffee, Tawny, Golden Tan, Mahogany, Honey Brown, Blush, Pecan and Cream

We are all bold, bright and unique with a common dream

Women we are.. from each equator near and far

Clerks, Teachers, Engineers, Doctors, Poets,  Jouranalists, Bloggers, Ceo’s and Queens

Uplifting our families by any and all means

Be-boping, hip hoping, jazz, motown or blues listening

Long hair, braids or locks, naturals, perms, wigs or weaves

straight, wavy, kinky or curly hair wavier than wrinkled sleeves.

Tall, short, medium or average in height

standing together and strong in our fight

Grandmothers, sisers, aunts, lovers, nieces, mothers and friends

Emotionally, spiritually, mentally and culturally we grow

with new ideas, intentions and inventions positive, aiming for a higher plateau

while seeking financial increase, higher education feast, and constant prayer for worldwide peace.

Massages for relaxation, a sister-friend conversation, a good book for motivation

As we release, seek peace, to ease the pressure of our lives

living to care, share, motivate, educate, congratulate, as we console, hug and hold, encourage to thrive, propel to stay alive, while we strive for the best and living blessed,

My sisters we are the lifelong institution, creating, raising, and bearing human evolution, our inventions provide endless societal contribution, strong world wide attritbution…. my sisters we are the revolution!!!

Storybook Romance Episode

STORYBOOK ROMANCE Episode

 

I saw him glance and size me up

Perhaps wishing I was the sugar or cream in his cup

He watched me as he blew and sipped

Oh my if I could be the coffee touching those lips

His lips perched so perfectly

Arching arrows to my heart boldly as he blew slowly

For him I would be that cool, gentle breeze

That he needs to ease the intensity of the heat

Our eyes lock and meet; intense steam as my heart beats

 So loosely, profusely I began to sweat

Was this my real love jones the one I would never forget?

I imagine that….

As he began to take his first step

Like a tiger on a hunt matrix like he crept

I ran my hands across my body to prep to be swept…

Off my feet, up and away

His eyes look me over like a Bugatti or Maserati on display

All this fine masculinity coming my way

So sleek and stealth

A picture of perfect health

A model of wealth as I gain control of myself

I must think fast, release this internal whiplash

What will I say; he was so fly the ultimate guy

That you don’t see or meet every day.

He began to rattle and wrinkle the closer he came.

I brushed my mane, was I insane

To have these thoughts

He was so handsome and fine, could he be mine

Then she yelled next in line

I took a chance and got caught his glance

And had a brief storybook romance

The guy in smock, tried to block and made my romance unfold likes tumbling rocks

When he took my fly guy and held him high nailed him next to the clock

he hung him right next to the coffee sign for their new display. Oh my what an eventful day!

Those Words

Some words are meant to be verbalized and said

Some words are meant to be processed and read

Some words are meant to be nourished and fed

Some words are meant to be kept and suppressed in my head

Not to be released, instead I try to keep the peace

Maintain and tame that inner beast

That wants to feast, explode, release, and let go

Cause’ a fit, spit, emit, and implode

Stomp hard, discharge as I utter and blow, chatter and throw

Flow and say whatever that comes to the mental lobe

 A cognitive strobe of the cerebral globe creates a temporary file download

So, Instead I pause, cause and reflect before I eject

Something I might regret, I redirect

Scroll, hold, shape and mold those letters to form the correct words

Emotions transferred, Senses conferred

Syllables flew like birds to shape, formulate proper nouns and verbs

 Speech flock now disturbed

The rationale of my dome deferred, stirred, slightly blurred

If words are just words why are some never really heard?

But yet we compromise, by telling lies, then despise our outcomes

That could’ve been prevented, had we not segmented, circumvented the truth

It has now been misrepresented as we vented only fragmented

pieces of our feelings and thoughts

That ought to be, spoken prudently without scrutiny, truthfully… those words.

Are just words and must be said…release those words from your head.
