& 2016 Are You Okay

Last December I made a list of things I hope to see in 2016. Now that we’re officially almost done with 2016 and by some miracle the world has not ended, let’s reflect on a few things that should be understood and most definitely left in the year 2016. Calling Women Whores: It’s not nice!…

& Fav 5 Lipsticks

Makeup has never been my thing because the little bit of sleep I do get doesn’t need to interfere with my morning routine. I get up at 6:30 and I’m out the door by 6:45. I’ve turned it into a How late can I wake up and still be on time, game. Although I know…

& Metaphorically Speaking III

Like a knot in your favorite pair of headphones I’m a mess Just trying to get him out of my system It’s like you meet someone You plan forevers and kids and then it ends Sometimes forever is tomorrow It’s like after him you’re dating placeholders because you’re holding on to hope That after years…

& Superhero Vs Villain 

One day I’ll come back and finish this poem but so far I’ve fallen in love with these words. 😊 😊 

& How I Met Your Mother

My first serious relationship went on and off for a few years shy of a decade. We were the definition of “It’s complicated” before it was a relationship title. But we also came from the generation where at one point text messaging was costly and calls had to happen after seven. Technology wise it was…

& Justice for Some 

Everyone is always quick to quote MLK on race but if he “fixed” the problem he’d be here today… “All lives matter,” is like saying “With liberty and justice for all*” *terms and conditions apply. If all lives truly mattered everyone would be at the protests on the front line. The blind truth is America…

& Independence Day 2 (Movie Review)

It was supposed to be great and they even had over twenty years to perfect it but Independence Day 2: Resurgence fell victim to a bloated storyline that was so rushed that I insisted on keeping the 3D glasses since I couldn’t get my money back for the ticket. At a time where 90s nostalgia…

& Pieces

I have this thing where I love meeting new people but I hate getting to know them. I love the thought of thinking who they could be and listening to their stories as I harbor the ones that mean the most to me close to my chest. I would give a stranger the world as…

& To Lou

Last night I partied with my grandfather in my dreams. Pappy had on that sharp blue suit  The one where when he walked down the street he immediately turned heads.  People would say, “I saw Lou and he’s still looking sharp.” There was music at this party It was a family affair and was as…

& Okay Ever After

I wonder if Snow White is okay right now? Did she grow tired of cleaning up after Prince Charming?  His charm is probably long gone by now. Has she gone mad from having seven one dimensional men as her only friends? I’m a hopeless romantic but sometimes I think she should’ve just ate  the apple for peace…

& Re(Introduction)

It took a decade of frustration but all your indecisive ways were a blessing in disguise I’d try and I’d try to get you to love me the way that I loved you the most but I was asking something of you that you couldn’t give. Not even big things just flowers, “Thinking of you,”…

& Happy Mom’s Day

Love my mother so I wrote her a poem. Every year I write her a different one. This year’s just came with a slideshow. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. 🙂 She’s my first best friend. I didn’t pick her, she picked me. She’s changed my diapers, wiped my snotty nose and…
