Can These Tears Wash Away The Ills Of Racism and Injustice

Posted On: April 22, 2015

Can this man's tears wash and heal the ills of racism and police brutality? Is that even a question. God will not destroy this world like so many believe, humanity will do it on their own.

Martinez Sutton, brother of Rekia Boyd describes the moment the officer who killed his sister was acquitted: "it was the first time I felt like I was broken," during the March 2 Justice event yesterday (April 21, 2015).

Salute and God bless this young brother right here, for having the courage to show the world his pain but most of all, for showing the police officer who got acquitted his tears. Because some of us have too much pride to ever let that part of ourselves be known. God willing, his pain will make a difference.

Should You Look At His Phone?

Posted On: April 04, 2015

Things that make you go hmmm...

I'm gonna tell you like my elders told me, "mind your business." Also, "pray and ask God to bless your hands because its obvious your hands are idle, looking for trouble or trying to create problems."

We all seen the pictures of Beyonce with the x-ray vision eye, trying to decode or figure out what's on Jay Z's phone. It's a natural reaction, we all been there and done that. And Bey looks like she's studying something or reciting some numbers in her head. (Lol) But anyhow.

Why would our elders think its a violation of privacy to look at man's phone or a woman's phone? And keep in mind, the marriages of our parents and elders lasted. Divorce was unheard of back then, if there was problems on the home front, it would be rectified, instead of getting lawyers and judges involved. Also, the women back then knew how to pick and choose their battles. And this is where this whole looking at the phone thing comes in.

Is it really worth the aggravation, the stress and drama looking at a man's phone brings? You migh look at his phone and see a text message that says: "Thanks for dinner, really appreciated it." from Sabrina. Now you all upset, calling your girls, making threats on leaving him, crying and getting all worked up. Only to find out, Sabrina is a business partner who finalized a deal during a business dinner, the company your man works for sponsored.

If you analyze this incident, our elders are right. Looking at a man's phone is creating problems that were not even there. And if you are busy and being constructive with your time, you will not have time to be looking at a man's phone. It's one thing if a man gives you reasons or your suspicious because of his odd behavior, even then you should know yourself well enough to trust your intuition. Your intuition will tell you more than the phone can.

So, I agree with the elders, find something to do and choose happiness. It's not worth the drama, pain, headaches, stress and all the negativity looking at a man's phone might bring. And it is a privacy thing too, respect and honor it ladies. Life is really simple, so why do things to complicate it? If anything, go take pole dancing class and step your game up behind the doors and in between the sheets. Learn how to do Kegel exercises and strengthen your vagina muscles. Ladies, you do know your vagina is a muscle? When you flex it, you get that grip and give him a nice hug. For real, although that's a whole article on its own but you get the point.

I am my sister's keeper.

Happiness is a beautiful perfume to wear and spread the joy of its scent.

Have You Seen God?

Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshipping."

Who Said Men Can't Fly?

"How great are these stars? That sparkle in the sky, too much to count, an eternal bliss of blessings shining amongst the universe. If God created you to be as great as these stars, then why should you be afraid to shine? With an unlimited resource of light and power, find the Orion within and glow."

The Rise Of The Phoenix

Posted On: April 01, 2015

 

"My soul is on fire, my heart is burning, my spirit has a fever..

my passion is profusely sweating and my body is like a blaze that torches my essence.

Burn baby, burn baby.

I have a fever, I'm burning away as these flames rages in the midst of my eyes.. What once used to sparkle is now glowing.

Can't you see my soul has taken on a new life and my heart is breathing like the sun.

Burn baby. Burn..

You've touched my soul in such a way it has never been felt before, with no hands, you've left your imprint on me.

Burn baby. Burn baby.

My pen is lightning bolt, with electrifying words of currents flowing through your viens.

I am a firestorm, a poetic goddess whose symphony is caught in a dragon's heart.  A priceless note, the treasure of the moon's first kiss."
