Wolf

Which wolf will you feed? The savage beast or the angelic being… At the age of 11 I had already grown to be pessimistic about life. I sat in the counselor’s office and remember telling her, “I always feel like I’m waiting for the second shoe to drop”. Life can be so good but there isn’t enough sugar to stop the metallic taste from reaching your taste buds.  At the age of 15 I was distraught my mind and mouth were unionized to fight even if there wasn’t a war. I’m about to be 22 years old and still feel like the little girl who couldn’t trust the universe. I can say it’s even worse now because I feed myself optimism to drown out the part of me that needed to feel secure. Like big shit getting dismissed because we are all just humans trying to figure out which way to go. I sometimes wonder to myself... which wolf is more me? The wolf who despises, burns bridges and criticizes. The one who as soon as they feel threatened starts throwing grenades and doesn’t care if the whole wor

The Help

My job is to wait for a calling. Help those who have no one at all and then fall back when I’ve helped enough. Falling back hurts though, but what else am I supposed to do when my mouth is tired of talking.  I get tired of people and become robotic. Unable to function because there are daggers in my chest and if I move too fast my heart will bleed. I silence myself for protection. It’s called the silent treatment for a reason. it’s the best remedy for a poet with a sharp mouth piece.  People will show you when they want you to shut up; so don’t speak. Silence Can be filled with inner turmoil or  peace. Lately it’s been a war between both entities. Not  being able to speak with the ones you love is appalling. Bodies depart but the essence of love remains.   I have no control over where the lord places me, and obedience is a charm of mines, so I adapt to my placement perfectly. I was reliable, patient, loving and kind. I sacrificed for my sisters. I watched faulty circumstances c

Connections

Wake up Don’t let the ones who neglect you confuse you   The forbidden fruit is what caused us to see skin, what caused us to have greed, pride and jealousy, its what caused us to cover up and hide from God. We should really check our mentality. I am no better than the Asian lady who does my nails, I am no better than my White/Hispanic best friend or the Mexican server at my favorite dine in. My savior is not black, white, Asian or Hispanic he stepped foot on earth before there was a such thing called “race”. I am connected to people through spirit not skin. I admire blue eyes and brown eyes if they speak truth from within. We should be able to enjoy all people from all nationalities, with any complexion. light skin, dark skin it shouldn’t matter to begin. don’t build yourself up to where you knock others down, we were created in God’s image equally. Remove yourself from the flesh and connect with others soulfully, connect with people through ways that your eyes cannot reac

Fuck love

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ Dreaming into submission thinking damn I really miss him, I hate dudes who are objective to commitment like this blinded intimacy is better when you let me love you because you would never have to question my intentions Why do men do this to women? I mean why Fuck something if you don’t see an ending vision, why is it so easy to take advantage of the one who has feelings. i really be feeling you but then you show your ass, making us have to end it. Ohh lord have mercy on this generation. because they are all burning either their genitals or the way they go about fornication; Hard rock, hard Rock let me in I don’t know why you would make me cry. Feeling like damn I thought this dude was genuine. Sometimes I want to call you just to see if you even think of me. But if you did you would take the first shot… I cannot undo those moments, or the lost time I invested into you my love   but I can turn my heart cold… and when I say cold I mean frozen solid not letting

Let He Who Stole No Longer Steal

This painting was inspired by: Lauryn Hill (Mystery of Iniquity)  and the last guy I dealt with I  felt like our connection was 70%  on fleek and the 30% was the lack of growth from the situation . I mean 2 people don't go back and forth unless they really like each other and if it was just a fling there wouldn't be any reason for us to argue.  I told him that he was a brick wall because he didn't want to let anyone near his heart. The hurt he had felt in the past stopped him from wanting to  receive  love..... NOW I see he was the one who was stealing happiness from me and I can no longer let him do that to me! I am a loving, and devoted individual and I can not let anybody stop me from MAINTAING my inner peace. His hurt from the past is something that he should have dealt with before he got involved with someone and his pain is what caused him to put me through a whole lot of BS. 

Earth and Water

I painted this picture after watching BLACK PANTHER... It symbolizes the relationship of man and women (yin and Yang).In the man's eyes it holds the earth which is stability. To me a man should be grounded. In the women's eyes there are raindrops: women are emotionally driven. Water and earth go together perfectly and don't exist without one another. Water nurtures the earth, and earth gives water containment. Men should bring emotional stability to the relationship and the women will nurture that stability and this will create a beautiful union.

No doggy Zone

Could you turn off the dog in you off for just a second? Fishing for fish but you are not able to see the real goddess before you! Baby a blessing 😜 How many of my nights ruined by arrogance 😭 Thinking honestly why cant you just cherish this...  Cherish the chatter the laughter the moments that are genuine 😁 the thought of some one lusting about what was between my legs, what was behind my back and what was placed on my chest. Dude really! You are a mess! There is more too me than sexiness. Could you just turn the dog in you off for just a second! I want a mutual attraction, An every week interaction(everyday gets boring too quick) I’m sorry I’m not looking for temporary satisfaction. If you would just turn down your testosterone a bit, and look at me with nothing but the eagerness to learn about me and my brain full of shit maybe we could make something worth the wild and be lit 😂😂

We are The Epitome

Beautiful black queen Beautiful black queen You are the epitome You are the dream Silk sweet chocolate skin, or smooth and creamy caramel You must accept the hardship of bearing the world’s Challenge. Because nobody understands your rage nobody sees your passion The world cannot confront your malice Centuries of mind control.   They took away our privilege to stand by our men They took away our NEED for our Kings… They raped us from Africa’s dirt They exposed our naked bodies, they bought and sold our children and shipped of our guardians They took away our hope of better days Striking Black king   Striking Black king Nobody understands your challenge, they can’t confront your malice Uprooted from your throne, kidnapped from your kingdom. They stripped you from Africa’s shores They brought you to your knees They whipped your flesh and weakened your soul. They bought and sold your children then brainwashed your women. Only you know the s
