“YOU MUST NOT KNOW ABOUT ME!”

“YOU MUST NOT KNOW ABOUT ME”

I AM IRREPLACEABLE….

I AM A RARE INDIVIDUAL WITH EMPATHETIC AND SYMPATHETIC AUTHENTIC LOYALTY. I ACT FROM MY HEART, SHARE FROM MY SOUL, STRATEGIZE WITH MY MIND AND PERFORM WITH MY SKILLS. I WASN’T MADE, I WAS CREATED AND THESE TYPE OF VALUES ARE IRREPLACEABLE!

 

I AM AN ORIGINAL….

A COPY IS NOT NEEDED, BECAUSE MY POSITION HAS BEEN FILLED AND NO ARTIFICIAL ELEMENTS INCLUDED. NO NEED TO KEEP UP WITH THE JONES, BECAUSE IN MY MIND THEY NEED TO TAKE NOTES AND KEEP UP WITH ME. NOTHING BUT A PURE AND GENUINE EXAMPLE OF AN ORIGINAL!

 

I AM AN OPPORTUNITY….

MY CIRCLE IS GUIDED AND COVERED WITH QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY. THE ABILITY TO BE AMONGST MY PRESENCE AND IN MY ENVIRONMENT, IS A PRIVELEDG TO FEW. THIS IS NOT TO SOUND ARROGANT OR RUDE TO ANYONE, BUT JUST BEING COMPLETELY HONEST IS THE AIM. TRUST THAT YOU WOULDN’T MESS UP, IF YOU WERE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY!

 

I AM A SOLUTION….

UNDERSTANDING THAT I WAS MY PROBLEM, MY MODE KICKED IN AND I SURPASSED TO A SURVIVOR. MANY GET STUCK IN THEIR WEB OF OBSTACLES AND FIND IT DIFFICULT TO ESCAPE. THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL FOR THE LESSONS, BUT I AM SO BLESSED TO HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION!

 

I AM A RESULT….

I REFUSE TO BE A PRODUCT OF MY CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT RATHER A PRODUCT OF MY COMMITMENTS AND PROGRESS. WITH AN ENVIRONMENT THAT COMES WITH TRIALS, A REPEATITIV CYCLE WAS BOUND TO BE GENERATED. THEREFORE I CHOSE TO TAKE EVERY GOAL THAT I SET AND ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF THE RESULT!

 

“GONE TOO SOON, NEVER 4GOTTEN!”

GONE 2 SOON

&

NEVER 4 GOTTEN

GRANDMA & GRANDPA….

I BEGAN WITH TWO SETS,

ONE FROM MOM AND ONE FROM DAD.

A RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE, AND THE OTHER SET I NEVER HAD!

DADDY….

MY FATHER WAS THE KIND TO BE WANTED BY MANY AND HELD BY ONE.

HE MARRIED MY MOTHER, WHOM I AND MY BROTHER ARE FROM!

TRACY….

MR. TRUE LOVE AND THE ONE THAT I ONLY DREAMED ABOUT.

THE MAN WITH MY HEART, MY SOUL AND ALL MY LOVE NO DOUBT!

GENICE…

ONLY A FEW HAVE A GINNY, IN WHICH YOU WOULD CALL AUNTIE.

FOR WE WERE AMONG THE BLESSED, THE SHE LOVED TREMENDOUSLY!

J.J. ….

SWEET, FUNNY, TALL, DARK AND OVERALL HANDSOME GUY,

HE KEPT IT NEAT, CLEAN, ON POINT AND HE WAS JUST ALWAYS FLY!

GONE 2 SOON IS THE SLOGAN ON MY LOST LOVED ONES VIEW,

NEVER 4 GOTTEN IT WILL ENTAIL, BECAUSE I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!!

 

“TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO TREAT YOU!”

WALLS….

A space with no windows, four walls and a door,

To escape, retreat and not bother me no more.

BOUNDARIES…

You may have access and that’s only with an invite,

Take to many steps in my direction and you may encounter my bite.

WALLS….

A haven of security and my ultimate LION’S DEN,

No entry, no company and only I say when.

BOUNDARIES….

You can linger in my environment and even relax for a while,

Just know this is not home and you will be walking the mile.

WALLS….

I’ll speak when spoken to, hello, goodbye and thank you,

Anything else you thought to deserve, is not what I have to do.

BOUNDARIES….

Mind my business always and I’ll just let you handle yours,

Keep your own porch clean and I’ll deal with my own chores!

“YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’VE GOT, UNTIL IT’S GONE”

DEAR FIRST LOVE,

I not sure about your journey once we parted, but let me inform you on mine.

Despite my struggle and ultimate sacrifices I had to make for our offsprings, THE KIDS ARE DOING JUST FINE!

When you left me, you didn’t….YOU LEFT THEM BEHIND…. BECAUSE HONESTLY,

“REAL MEN DON’T LEAVE”…(check out the movie)

You may have had many cozy and comfortable nights, but mine were quite restless. This is a result of ensuring a cozy and comfortable environment for OUR BABIES.

I wasn’t able to explain to these blessings, there is nothing to eat. The only options I had, was to produce the basics on a daily. Not sure what your meals were like, but there was never an invite for them.

How can you uttered your words to say that is love and anyone in their right mind would know itsi not. For love can be showed in many ways, yet I have very few from you.

Make sure when you tell your story, you include your master of abandonment skills that you left behind. And the motivating story of our children, will be theirs to brag about.

One again…..THE KIDS ARE DOING FINE,

THEY EVEN HAVE SOME OF THEIR OWN!

Now if, or honestly since, your presence is still a ghost,

Don’t blame me for our GRANDCHILDREN

not knowing who you are!

HONEST AND AS FAIR AS I CAN BE,

THE FIRST BABY MOMMA

“WHEN I THINK OF HOME….”

4d016c738a70eeee452c0740c0602b73

WHEN I THINK OF HOME….

I think about the seeds I planted, that sprouted roots into a forming tree.

One that grew and it’s branches are of many, with so much more to come.

WHEN I THINK OF HOME….

I reminisc on the reason that I continued to keep going and not give up.

The motivation and inspiration, that became my fuel which kept myself moving forward.

WHEN I THINK OF HOME….

I look at the ones who harbor within my environment, utilizing my resources for their basic survival needs.

The hugs, kisses, love, respect, appreciation, gratefulness and praise they shed on me daily.

WHEN I THINK OF HOME….

I have to name everything that came out of me, all that is within me and all that I AM.

A place close to my heart not based on location, but rather a feeling that stays with me always.

TO MY CHILDREN

THANK YOU

FOR SHOWING ME

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS!!!

 

“YOU GONNA LEARN TODAY!”

LIFE….

Life is a one time opportunity,

Don’t miss your beat.

Just pull up your pants, brush off your shoulders,

And stand tall on your feet.

A smooth ride is not promised and not the one of guarantee,

Just remember to be grateful and thankful,

As you continue to pray on a daily.

 

LOVE….

Love is unconditional and without hidden affairs,

True, Genuine and Pure, will come from the one who cares.

Different forms that will fulfill you and experience in many ways,

Everlasting feelings and memories, to help you on your bad days.

 

THE WORLD….

The Earth is our neighborhood and it’s Continents are our homes,

And we designed them with cities for the generations that comes.

We need to devise a plan, for the future to habitat and grow,

Or they will be left with the reminants of debris, of a constant destructive flow.

FAMILY…..

Father and Mother I love you, you were assigned to bring me forth,

With nurturing and protective memories, you taught me to know my worth.

I will always hold you dear and show respect all the time,

For you both are my Day 1’s, and I couldn’t have asked for better to be mine.

 

SELF…..

To learn and unlearn, that which changed my direction,

Pulled me from lies that I was told and toward a Devine connection.

To love who you are and understand who I AM,

Became the first step in my journey, to where I AM!!

“MY GODFATHERS, MY THREE KINGS…MAY I HAVE….?”

IN THE CASE  I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIT WITH THESE MEN, I WOULD ASK SOMETHING FROM EACH. ALL MY WISHES WOULD INVOLVE USE IN TODAY’S SOCIETY!

THEY ARE….

MY GODFATHERS 😉😉

MY THREE KINGS 😉😉

 

“MARTIN LUTHER KING”..

May I have…..

your dream and vision implanted in the minds of the future generations

your compassion for others to be the air we breath and your value for family be the blood humans pump

your desire to see your people not judged for the color of their skin…BY THEIR OWN

your presence of your spirit to over take all pessimistic thoughts

“MALCOLM X”…

May I have…..

your interest and desire in building   black community relationships to the government and city officials

your knowledge of protecting yourself and family…BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, in our women and men

your articulate and intellectual conversation to be present in every mouth that speaks

“BARACK OBAMA”…

May I have….

your presence in the White House because is has FALLEN DOWN

your engaging union address speeches to be uttered gracefully from POTUS

your compassion, consideration, understanding and commitment to your country be instilled in the current administration

your heart to be duplicated in every COMMAND IN CHIEF, that comes after you

 

AS YOU CAN SEE, THEY ARE CONVERSATING…

BUT NO WORRIES BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS COME THRU….!!

#WISHESGRANTED

 

 

 

 

 

 

“SOME PEOPLE WILL BE IN YOUR CIRCLE, BUT NOT BE IN YOUR CORNER!”

GOOD MORNING READERS AND FELLOW BLOGGERS, MAY THIS BLOG FIND YOU IN THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL SPIRITS!

Today I would like to dedicate my blog to “GIRLFRIENDS”, where I will ask my “GOLDEN GALS” about friendships and advice to other women on building stronger relationships. Many females face negative encounters, bitter sweet conversation, false description, unfortunate jealousy and disrespectful humiliation from other females. The ponder is why is it present and what keeps it alive, for such negative interactions of females. Women are great examples to observe, inquire and become receptive to the wisdom and knowledge they share in regards to their healthy friendships. My observance places unstable toxic friendships in some of the newer generation, but some have been noted older as well. When you see a group of women, who are gathered together regularly, have the same ladies within the circle, support one another and have much time invested in the relationship…..THAT’S FRIENDSHIP TO ME!

But since my opinion and view is not the only one to be considered, lets talk to my “DAY1’S” and get their answer to the following question:

WHAT ARE THE KEY ELEMENTS TO MAINTAINING A STRONG AND SOLID FRIENDSHIP WITH OTHER WOMEN?

 

GMA:

“FIRST AND FOREMOST, IS TO KNOW WHO IS ACTUALLY YOUR FRIEND AND IF YOU REALLY HAVE A FRIENDSHIP OR NOT. WITH MUCH TO DO IN JUST TAKING CARE OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, WHO OUTSIDE OF BLOOD CAN YOU CALL ON IN TIMES OF DESPAIR?”

BIG MOMMA:

“YOUR FRIEND CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THE ONE WHO LAUGHED, CRIED, PLAYED, SANG, DANCE, RAN, WORKED, PRAYED AND SHARED MEMORIES WITH. SHE HAS KNOWN YOUR LIFE AS YOU DO AND YOU, BUT STILL LOVES YOU ALL WHILE BEING SUPPORTIVE!”

MA’DEAR:

YOU MUST BE WITH AND AROUND PEOPLE WHO BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU, NOT THE WORST. IN DETERMINING WHO IS A REAL FRIEND AND WHO IS NOT, PAY ATTENTION TO THE ONES WHO NOURISH YOUR SOUL AND LIFT YOU UP. THAT IS TRUE FRIENDSHIP!!

ME: THANKS LADIES, DAY1’S, WISE WOMEN AND LOVED ONES. THESE ANSWERS RESIGNATE AND HOPEFULLY OTHERS WILL RECEIVED IT!!
