It’s because I love me enough for the both of us why nothing you do can break my joy.
Mek unu so bare face and bright!

All inna broad day light unu a come tief dem offa di streets?
Unu do all sorta foolishness fe tek weh people pickney-
Unu ole emotional vampire!
Wolves in sheep clothing unu disguise unu self as employa

Unu wicked nuh brute! Preying pan poor people jus to sodomize our youths!
No conscience unu nuh have! –
Wukkin dem out, prostituting dem out, selling us like we a jus another item pan a shop shelf

Tell me about your pain…not having a million dollar car while many roam the streets hungry and homeless
Tell me about your sadness…not getting to make that vacation trip while so many are robbed and killed
Tell me about your insecurities…not having long straight hair while someone died yesterday for being BLACK
Someone got robbed for being rich
Someone got beaten for being white
Someone got abused for being a woman
Someone got punished for being poor
Tell me about your desire to end your life because you can’t seem to find a reason for living
While someone searches for a miracle for their terminal illness because they just want one more day ALIVE
Tell me about your SELFISHNESS!
Let go of what was, and embrace what is
Be courteous to at least one person and let it trickle to thousands
One good deed each day changes at least 365 lives
All this power you never acknowledged you had
If you are reading this, you are alive
If you are alive, then you have the chance to do and be anything you think is best!
Happy new year!!!
I just want to get up and kiss the sun!
YOU have been blocking your own happiness all this time
Just brush off those negatives and…
Kiss the sun!
Gerald you are my sun 🙂
Paint your day butterflies,
Spread it with joy and spill a little on others while you go.
So go ahead butterfly, go paint your days with beauty, love and peace.
Share as much as you can because even sometimes angels need help with their wings.
Love may be too difficult simply because the process is so simple
To put one’s happiness ahead of yours and make a sacrifice with no benefit to yourself is to give in completely
This makes it difficult, because the truth is we will always hold on to a piece of ourselves in a selfish attempt to look out for our own well being
So how then can you say you have truly loved when all along you have kept a small piece of yourself?
Love is too simple, we fail because we overthink and when we overthink we have held back a piece of ourselves and when we hold back, we have failed to love
Perfection does not mean the exclusion of flaws
Just as Success does not mean always getting it right
Perfection means staying true to who you are
Success means staying optimistic in aid of perseverance
Which all combines to define strength
Then when you mold a woman with all these characters
She is defined as a strong woman
So thank you for staying true to you
For leaving footprints that I can never fill
But prints that I can use to guide myself
Happy Mother’s Day for all the years to come
Happy Birthdays for all the birthdays to come
And even Happy Heroes day for always being my HERO.
For all great women…mothers…daughters…females
The wind almost went away with me
I stood by watching as small pieces got swept up and floated away
Almost frozen I stood there, subconsciously knowing something wasn’t right though
So I drifted…for a while
But now I have moved myself from where I stood
And I am taking back all of me that the wind drifted with
“Someone almost ran away with all of my stuff…someone almost ran away with me”
