Who Pooped On Your Good Morning?

How much does it cost to say, “Good morning”? What pain does it cause to ask someone, “How is your day”? One of my biggest pet peeves is people who don’t speak. I dislike it so much that I will shame people into speaking. Yep, I said it. I do it all the time. Even […]

When Your Roses Smell Like….

Yesterday I was not in the best of moods. Yes, I admit it. Most people think I am always a happy person. This is true. However, I am human and I have my moments. Many of you may remember the OutKast song “Roses“. The chorus says, “I know you like to think your sh!t don’t […]

Opinions Change Like Underwear

Many of you have heard the old saying, “opinions are like ________ and everybody’s got one”. I’ll let you guess what the blank symbolizes if you don’t know. I talked with a friend recently about a new milestone she’s about to accomplish. Her excitement was obvious, but there was also an uneasiness in her tone. […]

Just Blame It On The Residue

Wouldn’t it be cool if we could see people’s residue before they get too close to us? You know, all of the grimy, filthy, smelly dirt caked on their skin? Sure, we can easily take a hot shower to remove sweat and dirt from our physical beings. However, there are traces of invisible traits the […]

The Tail End Of The Sting!

The power of a stingray lies in its tail. Ironically, Ancient Greek dentists used the venom contained inside of the tail of a stingray as anesthesia. There is always light after any storm. Maybe you have experienced the loss of a loved one recently. Maybe you’re feeling really unnoticed or unappreciated. Then, there may be […]

The Coloring Book of Champions

I always enjoy the release of the Grammy nominees list each year. Of course, industry staples like Beyonce, Adele, Kirk Franklin and Rihanna made the cut. Those artists are expected to be on the list. However, one artist’s inclusion on the list pleasantly surprised me, Chance The Rapper. Don’t get me wrong. His CD, Coloring Book, […]

You’re Gonna Miss Me

Isn’t it funny how we often miss what has left us? Relationships, friendships and even job positions seem to have more meaning when they are no longer active in our lives. Why does this have to be though? Why does it take losing someone or something to appreciate its full worth? A friend and I […]

Let’s All Just Be Honest

People were walking on egg shells yesterday. The tension was thick enough to cut with a knife. I noticed how people were very careful to state their opinions of the election results. However, everyone tried to be diplomatic. However, social media showed people’s true colors. I saw posts and captions that were bold, very opinionated and at […]

Dangerous Illusions of Bliss

Last night, I watched an interview about one of my favorite artists, Alicia Keys. She talked about her new album, Here. There was one question in particular that really stood out to me. The interviewer asked, “What is your favorite song on the album?” Alicia Keys pondered for a moment before stating that “Illusion of […]

Bet You Won’t Push Me

Five years ago, I never imagined I would be on the brink of releasing my fifth book. I always loved poetry and even had a vision for three book titles. However, life has a way of smothering the flames of our dreams. Money, career aspirations, family, relationships and many other things can hold us hostage […]
