Never Weaken 11/13/15

Dedicated to all who died in the recent terrorist attacks, as well as the survivors.

Find something sweet in the day
So that you may smile big and grand
We all have a mantra we say
That holds our feet to where we stand
And with that much discipline now
You must be as strong as a bull
Cuz you will never weaken or bow
With all of ur sweetness so full

The HeArt of Brooklyn

I wish to seek as much art out of Brooklyn as possible. And there’s so much here that even the Brooklyn Museum opens its doors for free every first Saturday of the month.

When the weekend comes, I’m sure everyone wants to just go to a happening club and party all night. But museums and open mics appeal to me more.

Jazz and Poetry at Brownsville Heritage House. Curated by Green Earth Poets Cafe

I enjoy being slapped with culture and overwhelmed with international deities. Learning about different histories intrigues me and that is why I’m releasing my poem entitled, A Ride.

When I read it’s like a ride, a roller coaster ride

That’s better with a friend but I’m my own best guide

I like to see the world. The past, present and future

It’s like learning about my mom, and all the moms before her

I can travel across the land, see beauty far away

To a time where Amber Rose earrings were in play

Take me there museum! I wana go there today

Give me something to remember when I’m old and grey

The multifacets of love

image

There’s a certain twinkle in your eyes
I can see it when you smile
When you’re talking about things you haven’t thought of in a while
You have the strangest fascination with the multifacets of love
You’re waiting for gods sign
For him to send you from above
I can b ur beaming light n ill walk u
Thru the dark
Bark like a scolded dog if i sense any harm
U have the patience of an owl and
The strength of a lions herd
I really need you wit me to lead us
Thru this world

April Showers

When the sun is shining I’m great

I make plans to go out with my friends. Maybe even go out to the beach.

You know, be a normal person.

The suns rays give me the energy and food that I need to endure. And I love that!

But on cloudy days I recede to a place in the back of my mind.

A place where I can find the purpose for my life.

Focus on my liberties and find the pursuit of my own happiness.

Yellow Aura

Id been thrown off my guard

Someone came in and dropped me on my ass

I should’ve been expecting this, or at the very least,

I should stayed suspicious even after he said ‘I like you’

Cuz I was blinded by his light. U know, his aura and shit

At first his light was a deep blue almost like he was just at peace

Seemed cool, down to Earth, mayb a little too laid back

But hey, not all my weed smokers can be Michael Phelps

Then it turned to a red while he was talking about himself

He got real passionate about his novels and artwork

Which is always a good sign, passion is where I need to be

Later on he started emitting a yellow light, which is what blinded me

I got confused, figured it meant nothing since the night was going so well

Then BAM

You know, ladies. I blame ya’ll for this

I don’t know what happened previous to my vagina

But I’m not gonna let mine loose in the world

I don’t want a man to pressure me into sex, or say just what he needs

To basically present to me a replica of the type of man he thinks I want

The realest thugs are just that….100% sho nuff …..Real

Now I wanna take this time to recognize the Yellow auraaura

It represents joy, freedom, one who’s not tied to earthly things

One who enjoys the simple pleasures in life, and he’s staring at me

I’m not one for seduction, but he seduced me

He did all the right things at all the right times

Then transformed just as quickly as his light changed

U know what, You can suck me yellow aura

And to the man with the many hats you can suck yourself
