Family Trees

IMG_3371I asked my mother to take a photo of me underneath my grandmother’s trees – not realizing until I looked at the photo that I am one of her trees too.

Family Trees….

Ain’t no princesses here

Once upon a timeless time three queens came together.  They had random adventures, deep conversations, and occasionally twerked to popular music in the privacy of their own homes.

They wiped each others tears, gave long hugs, and laughed until they couldn’t breathe.

You see when queens come together and remember to AUTHENTICALLY  love on one another the whole kingdom vibrates higher.

*Ain’t no gossip.

Ain’t no fakery.

Ain’t no lies.

Ain’t no cat fights.

Ain’t no subtweets.

Ain’t no bullshit.

Once upon a timeless time three queens came together because the truth is queens NEED each other.

 

 

 

 

No periods – Stream of thought

Romance isn’t dead

Maybe our belief in it is

Can we resurrect our belief in romance?

What is love and what is lust?

Thinking back on my lessons i.e. my exes

That was love and that was lust -I categorize

My awakening from my own Disney dreams of idealistic romance push me to find balance as possible loves approach

On dates with suitors who think that flashy monologues about who they are will win my heart and panties (or in some cases just the panties)

I realize that I must be frank about my feelings and thoughts (or lack of feelings and thoughts) in respects to these suitors who are only enraptured by their own reflection in my eyes so that they too can wake up

They don’t care to actually know me and don’t even seem to realize that what they are falling for is an illusion they have created

I am not mad about this or even sad because I have done this too

I find myself grateful that I am even aware that their like/love/lust for me isn’t really about me

Romance isn’t dead maybe my belief in it was

I am not a Disney princess – I am a new age Queen happily building a kingdom solo aware that a King is coming

Aware that I will just know when he arrives

Aware that I will know because of all that I’ve seen all that I’ve learned and all that I believe

Romance isn’t dead and I will never stop believing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beautiful Distractions

I am ever so slightly distracted today

Can I just lay in the cocoon of comfy that is my bed?

Dreams of  romance make me giggle as I pluck them out of  my priority list and release them to the future

I have papers to write, affirmations to say, prayers to pray… and squats to put off until tomorrow

Laughs

I am ever so slightly distracted today

The present moment feels so good I just want to create something in celebration of it

So I step out of my cocoon of comfy intending to make something of this day

Yet I am still ever so slightly distracted today

My responsibilities seem close and far away – suspended in time by procrastination

Is it okay that I procrastinate?

Because O my have you seen the sky and how the clouds creep by in the most delicious dance

Mother’s sun warmed earth wrap my feet in beams of light melting all my worries away

Today am I really distracted?

Yeah

But I will make space for these distractions -these beautiful distractions

K.R.I.T. said It’s Better This Way

 

I have been playing Big K.R.I.T.’s latest mixtape, It’s Better This Way, non-stop. The photo below actually taken the day I attended his concert in Cleveland with my soul sista. As I rap along with the lyrics, that I relate to on an intergalactic level, I give thanks for K.R.I.T.  *Laughs He’s like a cool ass older brother reminding me to stay true to myself by simply being himself. I can be slightly ratchet, I can be chic, I can be country, I can be the opposite of the status quo, I can be underrated, I can be conscience, I can be creative, I can just be me – in any combination I want.

I can be all these things or none of them as I travel down MY own path.

Thank you Big K.R.I.T. – It is truly Better This Way.  Also, I’m going to go ahead and give thanks for that music you and Erykah Badu will make one day very soon. *Laughs If you need somebody on tambourine for that one, holla at a playa.
