Jeremy Renner AKA “Hawkeye” One of my Favorites

Just some of his songs

Hmmm..

Today the world is nosy, mean, and corrupted.

You use your sight to see all the violence and destruction. 

You use the nose to smell all the foul air circulating in the world today.

You use your heart to feel all the hurt and pain people are suffering.

You use your ears to hear all the berating and belittling of people.

You use hands to touch the blood that has been shed by man.

People think if they can’t touch, smell, taste, hear or see faith it, doesn’t exist.

Now is the time to try a different approach. 

Walk by faith and not sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

“Title”

The next time someone asks you what is your title or to describe yourself?

Furnish them with an answer that would leave them Baffled.

Well, I am…

A child of God and a Women of faith

A black queen and an Independent woman

Intelligent and Creative thinker

Entrepreneur and a Business owner

A boss and a supervisor

A mother and a wife 

A writer and a poet

A student

Would you like me to continue?

Make sure you leave them with an answer to ponder on.

Never sell yourself short.

Pause, Reflect and Reset

The last six months presented us with an opportunity to stop and reflect on life thus far. Base on my life reflection, I gain gratitude for the trials and tribulations I went through. The lessons I learned help me to become the person I am now. I don’t take life for granted. I appreciate waking up every day regardless of my pain and mental state.
In 2016 I was forced to pause and reset my life. I have been living life to the fullest every day. I started venturing out of my comfort zone. Every couple of months, we would travel across the country. I learned to let go of things I can’t control. I started the process of purging people from my life. I stop listening and caring about what people thought.

Life is too short to be a follower. People need to stop, look, and pay attention to whats going on in their life. Reset and create your path in life.

Color of my skin

Because of the color of my skin, you say my life doesn’t matter.

Because of the color of my skin, you avoid talking to me face to face.

Because of the color of my skin, you can’t see me.

Because of the color of my skin, you say I am not entitled to anything.

Because of the color of my skin, you treat me like dirt.

Because of the color of my skin, you think I am not intelligent.

Because of the color of my skin, you think I ‘m uneducated.

Because of the color of my skin, you belittle, berate, discriminate, hate, and want to break me.

Because of the color of my skin, you want to kill me.

Because of the color of my skin, you wish my kind would disappear from the earth.

Because of the color of my skin, I will rise.

Because of the color of my skin, I will shout from the highest mountain.

My life does matter, and you will never break me.

I am stronger and wiser.

I am beautiful and free.

I am worthy of life.

I am intelligent and educated.

I will no longer be chained and silence.

Because of the color of my skin, you seem to have forgotten

We all come from dirt.

We all bleed the same color blood.

We all have the same internal body parts.

We all will return to dirt once we die.

You are my brothers and sisters regardless of the color of my skin.

God created all of us.

We all are his children.

We all are the same, just different skin shades.

The next time we cross paths, you will know who I am because of the color of my skin.

P.S my brothers and sisters never believe you are weak, worthless, not love, or wanted.

Our heavenly father created each of us to be Priceless.

Take a Knee

I take a knee, not because you want me to.

I take a knee, not because you ask me to.

I take a knee, not because of the solidarity of the protesters.

I take a knee, not in the name of racism.

I take a knee, not because of systemic racism, which has been going on for centuries.

I take a knee, not for the reasons you think.

I take a knee because I have some things to say.

I take a knee because it’s the only thing I can do.

I take a knee because it’s the right thing to do.

I take a knee because of what our God has done for me.

I take a knee because Jehovah gave his only begotten son to save our lives.

I take a knee in the name of the Son our Lord Jesus The Christ (Matthew 16:16, Luke 1:31-32).

I take a knee for this reason, no matter how much faith you put into man, he will always fail (Psalm 146:1-5).

I take two knees for the faith, hope, and love I have in God.
