~Under Construction~

I'm under construction

My Blog is under construction

The season is under Construction

Construction simply means the art, trade, or work of building. Whenever we want to change something in life we work on building ourselves. We are the ones to create our blue print of what we want. We are in charge of our own legacy. We have the power to make things happen. You could be working on constructing a relationship, friendship, lifestyle, higher education, or future dreams. Whatever it is the time is now to do it, because time is ticking and you are still breathing. The year will be over within a blink of an eye (time is tricky).

So will you go under construction with me?

~The Liberation~

Living in between these concrete walls

And making collect calls,

I wonder when my freedom day falls,

I go to bed dreaming that I might,

Finally wake up and see the light

Waiting in this lonely ceil

Hoping one day I will post bail

I have faith in my attorney to not fail

Looking through these steel bars

Thinking one day I might reach the stars

If injustice in America, I hope there is life on Mars

Patiently waiting on my release date

When I can run through that open gate

Thinking no longer an inmate

I’m tried of being 80013

That’s not my name

Or who I’m destined to be

So liberate me, set me free

~I am praying for Troy Davis today I know God is capable of miracles. It just shows that racism in America is not dead. This case has to change our justice system, that's why it's so important who you vote for. I wrote this poem for a similar case but that guy was set free and I hope the same goes for Troy.~

~I'm Sorry~

I’m sorry

Time after time I think of you

Your actions are so unpredictable

Night after night I want to call you

But my insecurity keeps me invisible

Time after time I want to show you I care

Your actions keep me puzzled inside

Night after night I want to hold you

But my emotions said this love will die

Time after time I question my thoughts

Your actions tell me you are concern

Night after night I want to apologize

But my pride tells me no in return

Time after time I tell you I love you

Your actions tell me the same

Night after night I want to make love

But my heart tells me I am caught up in your game

It is time for our love to grow

Your actions told me so

Sleepless nights I cried

But tonight I will sing; a sorry lullaby

I’m sorry

~Friends, Associates, Family, and Sorors~

"Some people will tell you be careful who you call your friends. I say be careful who you call your: friends, associates, family, and sorors too." -Me

Just because we have the same blood doesn't make us family. Just because we wear the same colors doesn't necessary make us sorority sisters. Just because we talk doesn't make us associates. If you don't believe me turn to your local News Channel and see parents killing their babies or watch Maury and see the lie detector prove your best-friend went behind your back with your man.

I have come to realize Loyalty and Honesty can be broken. So just keep an eye on the ones you keep in your circle. I'm not saying everybody is like that but believe me.....snakes are out there!!

~New York Update~

The update from my trip to New York is long over due. I went to the big apple the end of last month and I had a blast. I seen my friends and my sandz (sorority sister I crossed with) while enjoying a variety of different cultures. They do not call it the melting pot for nothing. Also, I went on a boat ride for an all white party (picture above). I went shopping too, I can be a shopaholic at times lol.

I loved being in the mist of people that express themselves with fashion there. From the earrings, to the shoes, and their hair. It's amazing how fearless and stylish they are in NY. You don't see a lot of versatility in Ohio, mostly everyone here is pretty simple. Also, I got to enjoy one of my favorite dishes "Jerk Chicken" from a Jamaican restaurant. If you never had it you should try it because it's the best!

Another great thing about New York is everybody is a "hustla" (someone skilled at turning a profit no matter what the enterprise). They say only the strong can survive there because everything is so expensive. I wanted to go there for that very purpose, I needed the motivation that I knew this city would provide me with.

I met a wonderful taxi driver while I was there and I told him about an idea of a book I plan to come out with. The whole time we were driving he just kept telling me stories, and I will never forget them. I put some of his wisdom in my notepad on my phone, hopeful some of them will be in the book too. It was the first time I told anybody about my book goal. I can't believe I told a complete stranger though lol. I guess sometimes that is just how life is, you are lead to tell current people current things. I told him the title of the book and everything (the title I will not mention here). He told me I was a very smart woman..which is so true. When I got out the taxi he asked me when the book was coming out; and I told him when it does you are going to be the first one to buy it.

New York is fun....I had a better experience this time around. And if you're wondering about my book adventure I will be sure to give you guys updates :)
