Not Yet My Turn

I look to the sky and I keep asking why me? As I tirelessly search for my dream. That dream, that I dream through the day and through the night. I wonder when will it be my turn… I have all these ideas roaming through my mind, a piece of my most treasured art sitting on a drive…waiting to be seen..I ask when as I search for my diminishing faith to build me up and remain. Where do I turn? Continue reading “Not Yet My Turn”

Dear Self

Looking back I am still in awe at it all. Still in awe at the transformation and realization of what self-love actually is. In awe at the fact that meaningless, painful, heart -wrenching and often times stupid so-called relationships were the designing instrument to this very moment. How on earth did I do it?

How do you make it in America?

The thought of following a dream, chasing that dream, holding on to that dream when only I can see it, happens to be the most agonizing, gut-wrenching, often times the disappointing feeling of hope. America? I don’t know! America, the land of the hopeful! America the place where dreams come true! America the land of hustle Flows! America oh, oh, oh, how do you make it in America?

Sex and Marriage

The other day, I watched Bethenny Ever After, and on this particular episode, she introduced how tough the second year of marriage can be. One statement she made which struck a cord was that having sex three times a week was EXCESSIVE. I chuckled when I saw this because I kept thinking about the word “excessive.” Now I will be very real for a second, after listening to many married couples over the years, sex is definitely not a determining factor or the focal point of a marriage, however, it is the fun and often spontaneous aspect that most people wish to share, without guilt when they do get married. So three times a week is “excessive” pretty much shocked me. Being the person that I am, my curiosity ran wild and I decided to do some research, to figure out if that statement rang true in most marriages. I asked several married people and let’s just say it was a pretty accurate statement. The conversations however led into a much more in-depth discussion. Continue reading “Sex and Marriage”

WHY people Why?

I am completely baffled by the way we as African Americans are starting to think…I seriously just don’t understand exactly what we value anymore. I say WE because whether we like it or not, we are all a representation of each other. If you don’t believe me, think about it… If someone walks into a building and decides to act a fool, and I go into that same building  10 minutes later with a classy and demure attitude, how do you think I will be looked at? Let’s just say I will definitely have to work twice as hard to make a good impression. So my question is WHY people Why? Continue reading “WHY people Why?”
