Throwback Thursday: Birthday in ‘17.

In honor of “Throwback Thursday,” I wanted to share a picture that I hold dear to my heart. It’s a picture that I took with my mother and grandmother – two people that mean the world to me. Without these two, I wouldn’t be here now.

My mother, the woman who gave birth to me, and raised me to be the best man that I could be. My grandmother, the kindest woman I know, who gave birth to my mother, and is the most caring, humble, loving person, that I know. I love them from the moon and back!

They surprised me on my birthday, the day of this photograph, and took me out to eat. 💙 One of the best days of my life.

Ps- It’s not my birthday yet, I just love this photo! ❤️❤️🙏🏽

Throwback Thursday – Scar

In honor of “Throwback Thursday,” I wanted to share one of my earlier poems. I really liked writing this one. I had the past on my mind. Writing helped me during a tough time! ❤️💙

I gave it my all. Answered every call. You still hurt me, led me to fall.

The agonizing pain, the terrorizing stain, the indulging rain, the overthinking brain. And for what gain?

It’s like you were in this for the win, in it for my loss, in it for the thrill, whatever the cause.

I fought for you. Did you fight for me? I thought we grew. Did you purposely put me under the scree?

The pain, I wouldn’t wish it on an enemy. The entity, no empathy, loss of equity, changes in entropy.

Whatever the case, I moved away. No time for additional mistakes, my imagination was at stake.

My voice, released from the urn. My essence, making a return. I almost gave up my power. The elements spoke, there’s still much to learn.
