Hocus Focus

It’s not hocus pocus

She simply changed her focus

Pulling down her mask, she got back to the task

Consistent

Persistent

She keeps building in the silence

Staying far from their violence

Abundantly releasing

Her blessings keep increasing

It’s not hocus pocus

She simply changed her focus

*blasts off in spaceship

Cut up the Music and the Gratitude? Thanks-

I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the energy of the present moment whirring of my thoughts and I felt my mood shifting. So I stopped to make a gratitude list of whatever popped in my mind.  I tend to find once I start it just flows. Vibration raised. *big sigh falls backwards into bliss

I am grateful for people who except their calling.

I am grateful for the term “movers and shakers”- It makes me think of two old ladies doing the twist.

I am grateful for pillows.

I am grateful for Pap smears. 

I am grateful for understanding and loving “strangers”.

I am grateful for the ability to emote.

I am grateful for the sounds the waves make.

I am grateful for the tap tap that my phone makes when I text messages.

I am grateful for being here.

I am grateful for messages of love.

I am grateful for hearing.

I am grateful for tattoos and stretch marks.

I am grateful for fear as it reminds me to be brave and tap into my inner self as well as my support systems.

I am grateful for myself.

I am grateful for Tracee Ellis Ross and the Lyricist Lounge show.

I am grateful for 30 min barre classes on the YouTube.

I am grateful for my beautiful silver hairs.

I am grateful that I’ve accepted my silver hairs.

I am grateful for rented cars and the car I own.

I am grateful for the messy faces of children who finally want to eat and feed themselves.

I am grateful for chipped nail polish, it reminds me I’m not perfect.

I am grateful for spiderwebs and chicken tenders.

I am grateful for hard truths from soft loving voices.

I am grateful for self compassion.

I am grateful for laughter.

I am grateful for laughter.

I am grateful for laughter.

I am grateful.

Time is Yours Though

Her favorite rapper and yours too sent her this song before 9am

She understood every word

She still chucked him the deuce 

Because not enough time wasn’t a real excuse 

She blessed his dreams and prayed for his team

She could not live on the outskirts of his time no matter his intention 

So in love she let him go 

Those were his seeds to sow

Only in the present could love grow

Maybe in due time they would realign 

Maybe 

She understood every word

 

Selfish

Attempting to shelf me, only interested in my selfie

Selfish selfish 

Your surface level attraction not enough for my satisfaction

“You a selfish ass woman”

You damn right

Not built to make you a believer

I am no Mrs. Clever and this ain’t Leave it to Beaver

Mister – fix it your damn self

My energy is heaven sent and better spent on these babies

I’m teaching them to be selfish 

To say no

To never let a lame impede their flow

To know their truth and not let genetics or kinetics get in the way of their destiny

Infinite evolution in motion

Energetic billionaire with millions of minutes 

Are you just mad cause I won’t spend them on you?

“You a selfish ass woman”

Yup and you can catch these hands just like that fear

Self-defense 


Writer’s Note: Been boppin’ to Selfish by Little Simz all am. *laughs like Regine from Living Single  Hit the link and bop with me -selfishly. *sings Cleo Sol’s parts extra loud and dances like a pageant mom “My best friend is I… I’m so selfish.”
