A mom too
Dear mom, I’ve been contemplating… for some time now actually. As a matter of fact, for the last almost 5 years now. I’ve been contemplating on something I feel as though I should’ve been able to tell you, and no one else really. Or you be the first person to know honestly….

Finding the Magic Within UsRunner-Up in We Have a Dream Challenge
Growing up in today's society has quite frankly been a nightmare. For the most part anyway. Not only am I a woman, but a black woman. That alone has been a struggle in itself. But definitely not a battle that I will ever lose.
Conquering Writer's Block
Writer’s block. An enemy to all writers. Even the most creative minds get stuck from time to time. I like to think that I am a pretty creative person. Not even just in writing, but in anything that I do. I go all in at all times and strive to do the best that I can. Go big or go home as they say. And even though I am still young, only turning 23 this year, there is no saying how many different things I’ve tried in my life to express my creativity. However, these days I find myself writing. A lot. And I can honestly say, I’ve had enough writer's block to put well established writers and authors to shame.
The Owl Who Knew My Name
I watched as they left her in this old barn. It wasn’t run-down and tattered. Still fairly new and was built around a 30-ft tree. But it has been abandoned for a while… So as the tree went through the phases with the weather so did the barn. But I don’t think that was really their concern right now. As they placed her right under a branch that had just enough leaves to cover her, they left in a flash. Not before saying their goodbyes, however. Tears in their eyes they looked at her longingly before saying:
To Love My Best Friend
In short, I fell in love with my best friend. And I think I finally came to terms with it. But I'm not sure if I'm ready to completely accept. I don't want to be the one to ruin our friendship with her. But I'll give you snippet of what it is like having a best friend like her.
The Fiery Canary
I saw you in my dreams…fiery canary. High in the sky with your friend at night. Seeing you was almost too good to be true. Way too good to be true. You were a true mystery, a mystery that has gone back for decades. Yet, I got to experience you in all your glory the moment I closed my eyes.
It's Time to Break the Cycle
It’s time to break the cycle. The one that keeps you from doing anything, everything that you want to achieve in life. All the adventures you want to go on. The places you want to see. The new foods you want to try. Every state and country you want to visit on your bucket list. It’s time to find your soulmate if that’s what you desire. Time to try that ice cream you've been wanting to try but you can’t because you get ‘bloated’. It’s time to put in that work and lose that weight, or gain it!
