~May Monthly Motivation~

"Sometimes you have to slow down in order to speed back up again."-Me

This is a quote I put on my FB page that everybody seemed to like. It's so true too. Even God took a day to rest; resting and/or slowing down will give you the momentem to kick back up again. I hope this helps someone :)

Have a happy May!!!!!!

~Meeting My Favorite Motivational Speaker Les Brown~

I got to meet my favorite Motivational Speaker on Thursday with my cousin in pic too. It was sad I had to meet him at a funeral though. You can tell by his smile...that he just has a joyful heart all the time. It just shows my dream are real...what you attract to life will come! You can believe that! I didn't know I would meet him that day. Some how God made our paths cross...Thanks Les Brown for being such a friendly spirited person. You definitely made my day on Thursday God Bless!!!

~Rescue You~

Dedicated to all the Black men that are positive influences. Happy Black history month.

  To you with the chestnut smile
sun rays kiss you  in the morning
and I can smell your reflection vividly
upon those pearly white teeth of yours
There is no need to rescue you
you aren't in trouble
polaroid cameras were created for you
fastest way to duplicate your
immaculate image
your arms are like grape vines
covering me with your strong sense of masculinity
You must be a personal trainer
or perhaps a butcher
abs more cut up than meat at a market
Webster can't even define
your body's definition don't need to be rescued
if you were a cigarette
I would smoke the whole pack
if you're a bottle of alcohol
I would surely drink to that
if I could control the waves in the ocean
I would demand them to form your name
When you're around
all I see is those beautiful brown eyes
oh those eyes they tell a story
your story
you're a master
a leader in every form
a general in the army
front line warrior
ready for battle
you're unique
you're strong
you're my soldier
Your history is told through the braille
upon your backs
your ancestors were no were near weak
you don't need to be rescued
they need to be rescued
your oppressor needs to suppress his mind
fall down to his knees
and beg for forgiveness a thousand times
You're a king
You're loved
You're a Black Man
we need you
Only you can change the world

Trails of lust
spark the piercing eye of a loner
solitary cards shuffle around in throat
falls over and bums fist with sin and
develops friendship in the process

Until postpartum crawls into existence
creating connect-the-dot hickeys upon necks
blazing a furnace of firing flames
that secrets can't contain
minds can't erase the moments

The memories
the feelings
the song
you both sung
a song so sweet
drip drops rain from heaven
in the shape of her v

Band-aids weren't intended for hearts
bleach cannot abolish everything
ever tried inserting bleach into a vagina?

when dawn concurs dusk in the morning
I wonder however in a million years
shall housekeeping ever cleanse
the tsunami drowning in this room

~Everything Isn't for Everybody~

I've noticed recently God telling me that "everything just ain't for everybody." Sometime I just want to talk, talk, talk, and God is telling me to "Shut up." I don't know if I am sharing this to help someone else...or just to remind myself.

Either way I know I need to listen. We are given two ears and one mouth for a reason. Sometimes we just need to shut it up. There is a time and place for everything...right now I need to be in the silent mode. I don't want to miss out on what God is trying to tell me.

So for the next few weeks, I'm going to journal more. I love journaling it is a great way to use your voice silently. I started doing it a couple weeks ago and it the best therapy in the world! Another thing I plan to do daily is meditation. Meditation's main focus is to "be quiet/still." So hopefully I learn something these next few weeks. I will share my experience with you after the whole process. Wish me luck!

~Love your Hair~

I love my hair! It doesn't matter if it's straight or curly (natural state). My hair is growing...I'm keeping up with my regimen. I won't stop until my hair touches mid-back length. I know I can do my journey :)

~Closure will Come~

Closure will come, even if it's four years later with a clean cut. A wolf covered in the attire of a sheep. Mines came like that, last weekend. It wasn't pretty, nor was it ugly. However, he showed his true colors, and put an end to all the madness I once lived.

After hearing this poem, it gave me life!
So...this is to you Michael Jamal Johnson. Is that all you got? It's gonna take much more to BREAK me!
"Someone you love will eventually disappoint you, maybe even break your heart, or hurt your feelings, this will happen, ACCEPT it."   -Aja Monet

~Open Mic~

So tonight I'm going to an open mic night. It just so happened my friend invited me to one. I haven't performed in a while (as far as open mic goes), I can't wait to tap into the inner artist inside of me tonight. And I love to hear other works of art too. This should be very interesting...I can't wait!!!!

~The Realist Shit I ever Wrote~


This my newest word...the transition into my Spoken Word artistry. A friend of mine recently told me to make sure I share my work. I said I do on my blog...but as I sat and thought about what he said I need to expand and grow. I see myself lord willing doing my traveling and going to more open mic nights. I'm ready to take my work to a different level. After writing this piece...I realized I'm truly gifted. I'm so blessed to have a wonderful talent. And I will never stop sharing it with the world! I hope you enjoy.

How can we live?
When we aren't given a chance
coffins become white tubes
a massive twister suction away with
legs pried opened from east to west,
and another life is lost...forgotten

And how can we decipher the real, in the world full of the fake?
Counterfeit money, bootleggers,
Cup sizes double with silicone inflations,
hair shipped from Asian countries,
planted in Afro-American heads
as thoughts of European beauty...deception

Why does loneliness exist?
When I want somebody to come over
and dance their lips along my neck planting soft kisses
like butterfly wings dancing,
embracing the smooth soft skin of my human existence,
you know I am woman, I want to be held and needed,
and shown affection and hear words like...I love you

And why is it okay for one to judge?
Like they're rocking a sparkling bald head
with a name tag of "Mr. Clean"
hands washed several times and still aren't squeaky clean

And why do poets love to write at night?
Releasing organic rhythms of nature
like an artistic orgasm on paper.....insomniac

And why are we taught to fall in love?
When falling means to come down unstable, stumbling,
like the twin towers, instead we should stand in love.
Deeply rooted like a carrot sleeping under mother nature's bed
Freshly watered and nurtured, Untouched and pure

And why are we taught not to question God?
When he is our Father the only one who knows everything,
sees everything, and does everything,
so instead we hear answers from strangers and neighbors
that could possibly put us in Danger

And why is it not over until the fat lady sings?
how come it can't be over when this Poetic Queeen
with light brown eyes and thick coiled hair,
steps away for the podium drops the mic and says...This is the Realist Shit I ever Wrote

~She Lives-Aja Monet~

click here for her website

This young lady changed my whole view on writing, especially when it comes to spoken word and performing. I have never created poetry in the sense of spoken word until I heard her. She is changing the game in the world of artistry. She is a true inspiration and it shows through her work. Im so glad I discovered her on Youtube. And yall know when I find something good I share it with the world. Here is my favorite piece of hers entitled "She lives." Make sure you check out her other work and I believe she has a book out too. I'm getting that!!!

~Galleria of Art~

Crafted works of art surround me
I am in touch with my visual scents 
the lines forming in this piece 
are ohhhhh so relentless,
your lines more bold, while mines curvaceous 
they both meet together in congruent relations,
earthy tones
yours chocolate swirls into my light caramel,
create a Twix candy so sweet we can't fail
the masterpiece they call it,
the worth is priceless
"Don't Touch" signs guard it,

Focal point lost
colors broken into puzzle pieces,
 flat tones become flat lines
stray footsteps lead to the exit door,
why should you leave,
when I really want more
Galleria of Art how I admire your beauty!
Visually you have to satisfy my desire,
because unfortunately we are in two
different stages of build an empire

*Goodbye Masterpiece*

~January Monthly Motivation~

I decided not to make a new year's resolution this year. Instead I picked a quote that I will live by "Hustle like an Immigrant."

The quote I got out of one of Rusell Simmons books. So I encourage all of us to Hustle like an Immigrant."

~Ready to Exhale~

I've been waiting to exhale,
no inhale the scent of your body,
feeling your body on me,
your lips to meet mines so gently,
your hands touching forbidden fruit
Can I be your Eve babe?
And you can be my Atom to life
so we cannot be broken by any chemical means,
curiosity got me wondering
don't let me miss out,
I need you and you need me,
give me life, breath through me
keep my heart beating stronger and faster for you,
let me close my eyes and see only you,
rare like a diamond
rib I need, part of you
gifts of pleasure from me to you,
exchange to our rode of destiny,
give me my Groove Back
so I can exhale again
