When It's Real

Its been burning me up, this passion of mine. Everything in the past few months has been a drag. I want it so bad. My mentor on occasion has told me when you desire something with so much aggression, it will show. The journey to get there will seem tough, you'll find yourself becoming impatient and it will seem as though you never get there. My goal is simple, how to get there is simple, my connections are legit, everything is I suppose what it should be. But why in the hell does it have to burn me out. Of course I have the constant voice in the back of my head, "if the road isn't difficult, how do you learn to appreciate whats in store at the end of it?" Being thankful. I've had my days of depression and disappointment. I've had more days of eagerness. But I push, and I've prevailed. I know in the end it will be okay. I have to remember that I have it better than some, no, not to assume that I am better than others, no... Its just means that I am blessed…

Falling In Love

You fell in love before you knew him,
you fell in love with his love making,
you fell in love with the wrong thing.
You young naive developed pretty thing,
honey you are uneducated.
You know what you do but you know not what "you do."
You know everything don't you?, so why
the tight clothes, the dirty mouth, the high heel shoes.
Sweet young thing you, you're only fourteen.
Use that mind, not your ass to attract
You keep your eyes covered, don't be blind.
Educate yourself and earn self worth.
Stop being taken advantage of.
Don't allow men to rub themselves on your curves.
Your life here on the green is short lived.
Open yourself up to opportunities.
Bottom line, don't be "free."
Be responsible, stay knowledge filled.
A female is a strong being,
and she can be as independent as she chooses.
Great males exist, don't settle for comfort.
Being comfortable is good, but there's always better.
Work for what you deserve, love ain't easy.
Desperation is not attracti…

Let Freedom Ring, I say

There is a man that is referred to as "Masa" (master).
He is kind at times, but he can bite like a snake.
The hurt from it demolishes you.
His money is his heaven
Go get me some food he say.
Come on, come on, I'm hungry he say.

Extended or Not

Reality...
You are my sister, extended or not.
I have done nothing to hurt you, not intentionally at least.
I was not the distributing factor of how my life began.
So, I rest my voice, I rest my energy, and let you go on.
I let you live without my constant aggravation.
And I still love you without even knowing you.
How come?
Then back again...
Be my "big sister", be my example, let me wear your clothes without asking.
Let me do what sisters naturally do.
So forth I've learned through attempts that my aggressiveness has gotten me the total opposite response that wasn't intended.
I sit back, allow my emotions to fill my face and form ponds of tears.
Will you ever be available for a different, unique, frightening, but brand new sisterhood?
You are a woman, as well as I.
And so easy is for me to see how afraid we can me, and how childlike we are.
Life moves like air.
We share moments with people all day long, and one day moments become memories that we find ourselves reminiscing about.
We…
