i don’t recall ever really having a hero growing up. Except maybe Nikki Giovanni. I met her once in college. She’s the sassy, creative person i hope i am…but another woman who touched me with her spirit, her wisdom, her words and her achievements i think making her a true hero to me is Beah Richards . 

beah richards

Beah was a poet-activist-actress-playwright and author and up until the very day she died she was upbeat, humorous, spunky. Beautiful.  I saw a documentary about her on i believe  it was HBO and i was amazed by her presence. Her spirit, her laugh. I wanted to be a woman like that. Creative, beautiful, intelligent, spunky. 🙂

so if i’ve never acknowledged her as a hero before. She is. and every once in a while i think i need to be reminded of how beautiful, wonderful and amazing it can be to be a creative, loving intelligent black woman in this world. it’s easy to forget when bills need to be paid, and drama runs high.  I need a reason to get up in the A.M. A reminder of what is possible and doable and needed to be me, to be a daughter, friend, mate, sister, artist, etc..

peace and many thanks to the ancestors. may we live a life worthy of your work.and learn from the lessons you have given and left us.

the turning point

while i love you/ i love me more

& while i would have wanted to work things out a week or so ago

a few days ago it dawned on me that you are manipulative

and bi-polar.  you say things that you forget and i can’t live like that.

i am at peace. with a lack of drama. i can stand this.

can’t stand re-entering the circus called you

so i bow out gracefully

i had a nightmare that kept me up last night.

but today i woke up and saw the sun shining in my bed

clearing my head.

i love you

but i love me more

and i won’t be able to take the mind altering brain games you play.

i will leave that for the younger girls with low self-esteem

you can play with their heads. i’m too old for the stupid shit.

hope you enjoy ….

i’m out..

this is my turning point.

have you ever sunk down to the lowest low only to be prepared for your highest high?

I think that’s where i am now. I think i’ve done things and said things i’ve never said in the past few months that i am not too proud of. This i my lowest low.

 there is no where to go from here but up. i’m looking forward to my ascension



for once

the pain is no longer
here to remind me
of why
the void
the blank
the silence
within me
dream deferred
desire is
the evidence of
future action
implanted purpose
god/dess reminding me
that They named us
me,myself & i
and we are to
be creators
don’t detractors
of beauty
got off the path
got distracted
by sideshows and carnival tricks
the snake girl and the bearded lady
were nice enough
but odd traveling companions
drew too much attention
away from the purpose of this journey
got my GPS
redirecting me back to
Easy Street and Amazing Freeway
got paths to cross
and loves to ignite
children to entertain
and babies to kiss
got old mean to glean hearty
deep belly laughters of wisdom
and sassy old women to get blueprints from
for future endeavors
got silver hairs to earn
and bridges to burn
it’s too late
but for once
im taking my time..
for once..
it’s going to be allright
to smell the roses
and take the path in brickhouse stride

you ever feel like your on the cusp of greatness?
every once in a while i feel it.. but lately it’s been a more consistent feeling. It’s exciting and scary all at the same time.

I’ve been attempting to “get my mind right” so i’ve been reading alot of positive literature. i “stumbled” upon this book that is very enlighting called “Letters from the Universe” but those who know, know that nothing is by coincidence and when the student is ready.. well… the universe and its teachers have a field day like a monsoon on your life.. so change is coming and it’s exciting 🙂

I’ve also been researching the books that the movie ” The Secret” is based on and lots of the books are so old that they are no public domain and available online.

So take a look at As a Man Thinketh and ‘The Science of Getting Rich’

my music dreams are manifesting themselves in a beautiful way and im linked up with some very talented creative souls it’s all very exciting in it’s own special way…

expecting beautiful things to unfold before me


on that note.. the new video from treysongz.. i like this yungin’ 😉
