Window Seated

Ain’t no place I’d rather be then with me

I sing this song to myself and I mean every word.

I think of self love as insurance for my heart, mind, and soul.

Ain’t no place I’d rather be…

Thank you Ron Isley


Black Leather Verses

She pulled her black leather converses from the back of her closet.

She dusted them off and turned them over in her hands as she thought about where they had been.

She thought about where she was at this moment and where she wanted to go.

“Book the flight.” they seemed to say.

She was- but not at this moment.

Here and now she put them on and took a walk through her neighborhood and reveled in her own vibrations.

Rise up

You taught me to face my past and release it or be damned to keep repeating it

He rose

She rose

I rise

Rocks thrown in judgement and heavy crosses may break our bodies but never our spirits

She rose

They rose

I rise

The people are still rising and realizing

May we remember that our spirits are unbreakable even as devils try our fly and tell us lies

Protected and connected we are

Keep rising

More and More

God bless the children and God bless the kings and queens who uplift them.

True love

I watched her in the mirror as she combed my hair with care.

She found this style on Pinterest, her drug of choice, and thought it would look good on us.

All the visions.

All the focus.

All the love.

She is what I have been looking for.

How had I not seen this before?

Our eyes met and she smiled and said, “ I am not going anywhere.” as she brushed down our baby hair.

”Good.”I replied thankfully.

I watched her in the mirror as she combed my hair with care.

Firm Warning ‘cause I love you Woman

Dear my queen,

Disconnect from neglect

Have some self respect

Before I come at his neck
