On some cupid type vibes....
Is you by yourself right now?
Come give me that good loving
like Top Shelf right now
then we "drunk in love"
can't make it off the couch
we can stay in
pandemic--can't get out
so this a different type of trippin
pushin in the whip
but it ain't no tears
massage all the stress out
Don't make me miss you
I want more...
So lets get by ourselves
We "alone together"
not myself right now
What's on your Valentine's Day Playlist?
CHECK OUT MY GO-TO VALENTINE'S DAY MOODS
Here's to understanding the pureness of vulnerability... to become the most humble and open form of self... embracing desires as a way to understand strengths vs weaknesses ...regarding our display of emotions and our ability to express love.
To choose happiness is to choose growth... to choose growth is to choose light... what that light attracts may very well become a revelation of the purpose of a counteractive darkness... However, some may even question, "Can Romance save you?"
Romance may very well become, through exchange of truth, a tool of revelation more so than an ardent fairy tale.

When I initially wrote "Dear Black Men," I had no idea who the audience would be. I decided to include it in the "Identity" section of my poetry collection Welcome to the Queendom as a dedication to the strongest Black man I know, my father. Over the years, I've learned the unique strength of manhood as I watched my dad uphold our family and use his spiritual armor to guide us all as a unit. Growing up, I don't recall my dad having to say much often, yet we felt and knew he loved us through the security he provided spiritually, financially and emotionally. Although, I can count on one hand the times I've seen my father cry, I've watched his eyes as he carried the daily weight of Blackness, manhood and fatherhood. As a mood ring, his hazel eyes shifted to shades of earth-tone greens through all the frustrations, sadness and sometimes weariness. I can only imagine what he truly holds inside and that is one of the major reasons why I wrote this poem...
