A Prayer For Intrepidity

Intrepidity: Resolutely courageous; fearless I follow some dope individuals on social media and in real life. Purpose filled people. Bosses. Go Getters. Business Owners. Dancers. Activists. Bakers. Chefs. Deejays. Stylists. Pod-casters. Artists. Students. I could go on and on. Young and old. Males and females. I’m motivated by these people. I stalk them with glee!…

A Poem About My Body

Chest poked out. Butt sticking out. Lips puckered out. Confidence oozing out of my teenage frame.   Hips spread wide. Breasts sitting high. Eyes to the sky. Thank God for being 25!   I’s married now. Let eat at Mr. Chow’s. My stomach no longer growls. Happy Wife, Happy Life.   Two kids in. Hair…

Positive Expression Does Wonders

When I’m frustrated, I smile. Until I’m behind closed doors. Then, I remove the smiley face and display my emotions. I discreetly stare at…

Who Is This Woman?

Ten years ago. There was an older woman that worked in the same building that I worked in. Eclectic and Bold. I’d never seen a woman wear striped button ups with polka dotted pencil skirts. Fishnets with blazers and short skirts. Leopard print cat eye frames. She wore her collars sticking straight up in the air. Fabrics that didn’t match, but…

I was eating a chicken strip the other day and I was eating the outsides and around it. In my head, my grandmothers’ voice said “stop being childish and eat the whole chicken strip!!”. I proceeded to eat the whole thing and I…
