Am I awake?
Mind wide open
Always scheming
or is it just daydreaming?
Read me right? Nah
That’s the outer shell.
What do you see?
When you look into these eyes.
Do you see me?
The successful woman?
Or the girl on stage?
Do you see me by the Eiffel tower?
Or my rhymes and lines lifting
off the pages of a book.
Do you see the dreamer?
Or is it my determination staring at you?
Hell! Maybe it’s a peep,
of the words my mouth can’t utter,
that says kiss me.

This is a poem I wrote about two years ago, it still feels like me, a bit of a dreamer. I saw a tweet the other day that said, “Describe yourself in a couple words” I replied sugar, spice, emotional, and optimism. Can you see it?

Let me tell you WHY I AM A QUEEN.

Hello Everyone 🙂 please check out Jo-Ann’s new series, it is meant to uplift women, because we ALL are Queens. Check out her post for details, then send her an email with the reason you are a Queen, here: iamj0ann212@gmail.com

Be you

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be mad by those who could not hear the music.”

-Friedrich Nietzsche

I say be you, what if the case was that the music is playing in one’s head? then we would all be mad here. People are always going to judge, they will always have something to say so don’t make decisions based on the fear of what others might think, do what feels true to yourself.
