~Another Accomplishment~

The beginning of this month I finally finished my 14 week Community Health Worker training. I learned so much in this program about myself in the health care field too. I had the opportunity to work with a non-profit organization called Mom2be and that was my favorite part of the program. Working with (Black) pregnant women to have a healthy outcome for mommy and baby. Helping to reduce and eliminate infant morality in my city. I was bless to work with some many amazing people!

Calculate me, length, width, and depth
trying to run but no exit I have met
time to escape the illusions and lies
white painted faces, red lipstick no lines
mute the noise from the chanting and tears
fakeness and foolery, falls  on deaf ears
internal battle has turned into war
confusion and delusion, make the fire uproar
cries, screams, emotional torment
closing the chapter of social unmet
throwing out secret and stories unkept
searching for courage, wisdom, and faith
praying to God for comfort embrace,
ripping the heads of devilish snakes
they watching and waiting for me to break
I'm superwoman you see the cape
bang, bang, bang, bang, all four walls
let me out, let me free
my desire is to be only me
no symbols, letters, or perplexed ideas
I choose to be free, let go of my fears
those mythical jokes are out of my ears
I want out of this cubic, I will create my own line
one single person, standing strong and divine
a free spirit of God's royalty
knowing he is the only true loyalty
I don't ponder anymore, instead I take steps to freedom
out of this confined box, so don't calculate me

~September Monthly Motivation~

This is something I am going to start working on this month. I believe my vision board is to small for my life vision. Our visions often change and it's easier to change a book rather than a vision board. I can't wait to finish it and share it with you all!

~Letter to the Main~

One of many, circles and circles of them,
which one to pick, 
is it me, side, jump-off main,
nobody get to be the one,
we all are one of many,
toss around in a circle, 
your circle of convince,
your circle of fatherhood to many,
plenty of seeds,
trying to create more pots, pots to implant your seeds,
not in just one,
no one is not enough, you need two,
no, you need three, side jump-off
and main, three girls in the running,
who will remain? caught in a circle
your circle of lies,
the one who remains is blind, 
or maybe she can see but doesn't want to 
because you wear your mask so perfectly
who gets the phone call tonight?
Who will be lonely?
who will be questioning her future,
waiting doesn't have an answer
the silence in the wait is the answer,
I wonder how you sleep at night,
knowing your life isn't real,
a picture he painted for you,
you can see right threw him
instead of beating it out
you prefer the lie,
the truth is we all in the circle,
his circle, you're just his main 
when we are gone his cycle will remain,
I found the truth when he told me about you,
now enlighten yourself, to see what I have seen,
question his lies, we were all a part of his circle,
I no longer remain,
I caught on to his games, and what's the joy of being the main?
Being a main will always put you in the circle,
don't be the main, be the one and only!

~Whoever Said Black Ladies Couldn't Get Along...Lied~

One of the best experiences of my life happened last month. As a contestant in the 2013 Miss Black Ohio Pageant. I met new friends, had several eye opening experiences, and learned that persistence is everything! It took a lot of money, work, and time, but I can say I made it to the end. I didn't win but I had tons of fun. I might do it all over again next year too.

Big thanks to the previous Miss Black Ohio Kayla Hardimon for her encouragement. I will never forget her telling me some advice that I will keep with me my whole life. Also, congratulations to Ruby Thomas the new 2013 Miss Black Ohio USA. It was my joy competing with you...and thanks for curling my hair the day of the show!

Whoever said Black women could not get along....we proved them wrong. Keep striving high ladies, we all will change the world someday!

I wish I took more pictures, but my phone was dead half the time. There was a total of nine ladies all together. So I do not have pictures of some of the ladies... however I still love them all the same.

I hope you'll enjoy the pictures...and now since my schedule is a bit free. I'm gonna try to blog more. I have a few new poems, will be posting them soon too.
