I will not let you walk through my mind with your dirty feet!
You won’t corrupt my thoughts against my ideas!
I will not let you open windows in my head to let in dirty air
To stain the positives I have built my brain on
You will not ruin what I built
I am the only one allowed to stand in my way, and even I won’t let myself stop me!
Who told this little black bird that she couldn’t sing?
Her lyrics tell tales of a broken heart searching for a home
That to me is a tune we all can relate
So who told this little black bird she couldn’t sing?
Who told this little black bird she couldn’t fly?
Her wings were made to rise like a phoenix
From the ashes of pain, poverty and her past
That to me is a journey we all walk
So who told this little black bird she couldn’t fly?
Who told this little black bird she couldn’t?
This little black bird sings through poetry, she flies in her imagination, a journey with no limits
So who told this little black bird she couldn’t?
Because this little black bird lives.
…………………………………………….for all birds
It’s not a one foot in, one foot out thing
I’m all in
The good times, we sure have some, but the bad ones too
Lord knows how many times I’ve wanted to slap, shout and run out on you
But reality is, it lasts for just some minutes, because I look at you and I see more than one reason to be happy
Something about you fills up the room even when it is empty
You make rainy times feel like a cloudy day and my whole heart crumbles if you are not happy
But I am all in, no holding back of emotions of jealousy or anger or silent treatments
I’ll toss my heart in with no regrets, doubts or back up plan
I am loving you with all of me, in me, about me, me
Because you are a part of me now, I run on your energy
I’ll scatter rose petals in the wind for you to find me
For in your very thoughts I live
I smile each day when your heart embraces me
and from your side I will never leave
I’ll scatter rose petals in your dreams for you to see me
Whisper my name and I’ll be there
For even in times when you thought I was missing
Right beside you, I was always here
For :Judith Allen in memory of her mother
I dare you!
I dare you to open your lungs and embrace the fresh air sparking a new day!
Spread your arms like an eagle taking flight
I dare you to scream out loud, regardless of who is listening because you know how truly blessed you are
I dare you, no double dare you-triple dare you to wake and accept LIFE!
My thoughts travel along your eyes
Travel along your mind
Trying to figure out your internal design
Does it complement my taste of fashion?
Can my interior design brighten your room?
I wander, all over you.
If they choose to be rocks then become water
If they choose to be the sand in your eyes then become wind
If they choose to be defiant then become persistent
You can always choose resilience at a crossroad.

Sometimes the right thing to do is to get up
Literally standing up is what makes sense
Words are as physical as we make them to be
Words can trigger tears, trigger joy, trigger justice and even trigger the trigger
In my history, some persons stood up just so that I can now sit with who I want, where I want and as long as I want.
Some persons stood, spoke, fight and marched for me.
Today let us remember that we too can stand, at any time for what’s right!
Someone forgot to tell you that you are a seed
Sometimes things will go off balance and in the midst of your growth you lose a few leaves here and there
Maybe your root is tampered with a little and you wither down somewhat
But then the universe grants you showers of rain and ray of sunshine
and before you know it, you are blossoming again
Someone forgot to tell you, that you are a seed.
Imagine waking up beside your best friend every day
Sharing smiles, memories, struggles and joys with the same heart for years
Being able to read their emotion without a single word
Being able to predict a reaction without any subtle hints
You know them, like you know yourself, maybe even more than
Watching your children grow before you as testimony of the years of your love-
the fruits of that special bond-
and then to be asked a question that will, before God and all loved ones, formally testify how true this love this
Imagine your name written in the stars before you knew it
For: Erica and Nardo : Congratulations on your engagement!
