Diggin’ in the Crates…
“Revolutionary Love” is a poem featured in the book, A Smothered Scripture. I created this video on Windows before any of the fancy social media apps we have now.

You ever have a dream that just keeps nagging you? I remember wanting to write poetry for as long as I can remember—but…

“That’s not a real job.”

“You can’t support yourself off a dream.”

“Can’t eat poetry.”

Words I’d hear and some if tell myself. As I look back over the past ten years, I realize my dream would’ve made a way—if I would have kept feeding it. And, I can literally kick myself for not sharing this passion, this dream, these words with the world sooner.

The video you’re watching is one that I created about nine years ago for a poem entitled, “Revolutionary Love.”

You can find it—and much more—in the books on my website. #linkinbio

I hope you like it and that it encourages you! Remember the journey to #SlayTheDream has to start somewhere!

Hair Wars and Self-Care

Spoiler Alert: This is a “Hair Appreciation” post.

Yall. I used to be the queen of bone straight hair which over time ended up damaging it. Literally took me 10 years to become comforatble with my natural curl pattern. Would have never worn my hair like this even two or three years ago. My hair and I have come so far. 😄
