Open Heart

Our nation. Broken. Scarred. Divided. By lies. And hate. Bleeding. From. The violence. In the streets. Polluted. With. Prejudice. Blinded. By. False. Ideology. Filled. With. Greed. Moaning. And. Groaning. For. Truth.                

My Sister

Your love. Have started to break. The fallow ground of my heart. But yet you are still here. Walking me through. And holding my hands. As I fight my way to freedom. You are my SHEro! The way you love me. Is evident. Priceless. And without conditions. And my heart knows it. I honor you.…

Missing I.D.

Abuse steals your identity. Whether it be sexual, physical, or emotional. Who you were is no longer there. Its being held captive. Stolen by the darkness of your soul. So now every face you see. Becomes yours. Trapped underneath. The masks. You wear. Each night.

How are you?

As The World Turns

There are so many. Minutes in a day. And hours in a week. 1440 minutes in a day. And 168 hours in a week to be exact. Time we are all given. To manifest our destiny. To walk out our calling. It is time that will tell. How we made use. Of this gift. Called…

Dear Dad

Yesterday was Father's Day. I am not sure if you wanted to hear from me or not because you have not been returning my calls. I could get upset but I choose not to this time because just maybe you are battling with your own darkness. Whether you know it or not, you are a…

In A Moment

Riding in the backseat. With mommy and daddy in my view. Playing with my baby doll. Enjoying the summer breeze. Mommy laughing with daddy. Coasting along the highway. Taking the scenic route. Then daddy slowed down. Mommy got nervous. Behind me were red and blue lights. What did daddy do? A man gave daddy instructions.…

Parenthood

I believe Father's Day is one of the hardest holidays to face. Simply because there are so many absentee dads. In the African-American culture alone seventy-percent of dads are not in the home. Our kids are being raised in single parent homes and so many mothers are left with the responsibility alone. We have kids…

Rainbow

An explosion of colors. Plastered in the sky. A love letter. Sent to remind. Of His faithfulness. So you will never have to wonder. That He thinks the world of you.
