I find myself
to assess the damage.
I can be more human
than godly some days.
I find myself
journeying back to
mirrors in search
of how to recreate my past.
Times like these come in lulls
and with weight tugging
from the flat of the earth
because I am a universe all by
myself. More god-like
than ever and
unlikely to be

So this last quarter of 2016 has been really insane as far as life goes. I experienced a lot of ups and downs forcing me to make some tough decisions and cut a few people out of my life, focus more on my own self-care, and publish more of my writing. Once again, life happened and I had to refocus on my goals. I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions, because I try to create goals throughout the year. Yet, there are a few things I am intentionally starting to work on and want to complete before 2017 is over! What dream(s) will you be slaying in 2017?
More Dream Slaying ➕ More Goal Chasing

I gotta a little thicker since
my younger days.
Say, I still slay, still sexy.
Wanted to get with me
then too. Asked about my baby
and my Mr. Boo.
Said he liked my vibes then,
always knew I was cool.
Talked a bit about his bid,
his mama, siblings, and his kid.
I thanked him, hugged him goodbye
and told him be safe.
needed some motivation,
uplifting for his concentration.
Mama just passed, now his brother too
Working on that….

We pretend to be so into you but the truth is, we barely know you.
We think we have you under control but we can’t begin to understand how vast you are.
Maybe one day, if it’s in Your plan you’ll find us on bended knee begging for forgiveness.

I am trying to get inside - it's fine if you can't come.
Build a bridge. Tell a story. Make a friend. Be Magnetic. Sing. Thrive. Win. Smile because you can. Choose to Love. Shine.

Crazy quilts are unique and innovative quilts created from scraps of material. They're crafted from odd pieces that don't always match or fit together without the work of an artist. My hope is for a world that values this unique artwork. I blog to make IPOC authors and their works more accessible, to make all the pieces fit together.
Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of her life, every quality of her mind, is written large in her works.
