One of my favorite poems that I wrote awhile ago. Just wanted to reshare. I wrote this after my “Uncle Daddy” period. It makes me smile whenever I read it. Hope it brings a little joy to anyone else that may be going through something.

Flames covering the body, swallowing it whole. Leaving nothing behind, engulfing like coal. In agonizing pain, “please let it end!” Begging of you, pleading, this pain to send. Can’t handle it anymore, can this be over? Soon, there was nothing left, the end of the loner.

Rising from the ashes, the newest beacon of hope. Appearing through the struggle, and able to cope. Existing and shifting. Radiating and collating. The Phoenix- a new visionary, unlike the ordinary. Reborn from the Heavens and Elysian Fields. A state of peace, soul being healed.

More confidence than ever, an entire world to explore. Going to live this life, and learn new lores! A feeling of Nirvana, with profound peace and love. Exuberating waves of happiness, a powerful new dove.

        Well in a nutshell my 50th b-day last April I endured and conquered Covid. I lost 40 lbs over lockdown and then gained 30 back :(. I’ve been interviewed for an online publication, I sold some art, I designed Vans sneakers, I had three Haikus published in a print publication, I recently guest blogger a few review of Zimbabwean food near me for a Zimbabwean blog I follow, and now created a podcast where I read short stories, some of my own mostly from Authors I’ve met on WordPress.

I gotta catch your podcast. I’d love to listen and subscribe. You designed Vans also?? 🤯 Are they on your page? That’s so cool!

        Yeah there might be a post with the Van’s but there was a shot of me wearing the shoes on our trip to rehobath beach. Thankfully I wasn’t hospitalized for covid, I had a high fever for a week was always out of breath, and during the worst of it when I tried showering I felt weak and nauseous. My brother got it too, he lost his sense of smell. After covid I never felt 100% like myself until I hot shot #2 of the vaccine. The podcast drops every Saturday.

        Glad to hear that you guys are doing better. I heard with the loss of smell that it hasn’t returned for some people. That’s gotta be scary to go through. 😬🙏🏽 I’ll definitely be checking out your podcast!
