A pencil begins unsharpened, but only becomes sharpened when a writer desires to create. If the pencil is to break, what was previously created is not altered. The broken end is left and the creator has to decide to either leave it broken, or resharpen it. This is true with life. If you break, you still have the ability to resharpen and create. The benefit now is that your life will carry your experiences in beautiful grooves. True creators do not allow their obstacles to hinder them. They use them to grow, develop and become advanced.
You are created, and then recreated.
A woman, who was made by a rib.
She was founded by the support of the man.
The moment she took her first breath, she was special.
God favored her, shaped her in his image.
She bore children, and raised her family.
She taught her daughter to be fierce.
She was the true backbone of her family.
She redefined strength when her hips cracked, she tore and she birthed a child.
She names her son after the father, but she is his first bond.
She remained hungry many nights, but her children knew a good childhood.
She worked while the city was at rest.
She never complained and always thanked God.
She had a daughter, and then another.
She taught them how to love.
Her ancestors picked cotton and shared land.
Her grandfather moved his family North for better life in 1973.
He started his “new life” with two children, a wife and $20.
She was raised in the North and 26 years later, gave birth to me.
I carry her strength.
Everything she touches becomes gold.
I open my heart, just to love you.
I open my mind, just to see through you.
I open my eyes, just to see you. Continue reading “Sweet Love”
Everyday is an oppportunity to learn something new! What’s even better than that is having the opportunity to share your growth with someone else. Seven is the number of completion. I was also born May 7th and it took God seven days to create Earth. Here are seven things I learned at the age of twenty.
I haven’t been on here in a week, but I’ve been working on making things happen for myself and my future. I cannot wait to share them with you!
I’m constantly beating the odds.
Using God’s support as a whip and success as my mule.
I’m whipping my mule, guiding it exactly where I want it to go.
IM IN-CHARGE OF MY DESTINY.
As soon as I began to think of telling this story, My door opened slightly on its own. It wasn’t completely latched, but my room became hot and at 12.53am, this story will remain a draft…
It’s a very unsettling feeling to know evil is near, but faith overcomes this every time. God will always win.
Story Times are where I will shared from my past. This segment will include nothing but the 100% truth. This story is about the time I believe that I talked to Satan.
To the ladies who became business women, scientist and inventors,
Thank you for teaching me this is a woman’s world.
To the African Americans who were beaten, whipped and even killed,
Thank you for fighting for my future & inspiring me to make my life worth it.
To the protestors who stopped traffic and simply held their signs,
Thank you for teaching me violence isn’t the only solution to injustice.
You Matter To Me.

“Life isn’t always easy, but the journey you take allows you to become who you are meant to be. Life is also far too short to not appreciate every single aspect of it. The best and happiest moments of your life often occur when you realize that even the smallest things matter. They sometimes hold the most value.”
Grow with me.

Sunday was an interesting day because at the last moments of my Saturday night, I realized that I would be waking up early to come in for a shift I never realized I had. Life’s great! You think you may need rest, but you may be in the need of your next project in life.
Dear Mr. Shadowman:
I never thought we’d meet again.
But when you see him once, you always see him again.
