Tomorrow is the Day

Hey everyone. I wanted to spread the word.

I am a poet, down to my soul. I love poetry. All Kinds. I love reading it. I love writing it. I love thinking about reading and writing it. Lol

I also love helping others to break out of their shells and start sharing their unique voice. Or just supporting them in various forms if they are already sharing. I will often, share, repost, comment and of course purchase fellow poet’s work. It fills my soul with love to do that for others. I have decided to help give voice to all of us and my goal is to eventually be a go-to poetry journal for all the emerging and lesser-known poets that are out there.

I’ve started Be{Cause} Poetry as an online journal currently. But hoping to transition to e-pub issues and eventually print. I want to not only help lend an area for other poets, but eventually I’d like to be able to give back to various charities from sales of the issues.

If you are a poet and want to help submit to my journal, and I sincerely hope you do, please follow the blog and submit your work. I’d love to feature you all. 😀

Feeling Myself

A little #WriterCrushWednesday action for ya.

Feeling Myself

*collab from myself and Trina Emigh

I slay shit
Don’t play shit
Got no time for that fake bit
Always real cuz I got wit
Never ever been called a counterfeit
Despise me a hypocrite
You either with me or you not legit

And I never quit
Got awareness to transmit
So through words I spit

Infinite tool kit
I must admit
Too prolific to outwit
And for you I submit
My holy writ

Explicit
No bullshit
It’ll ground you like a circuit
Cuz I’m a natural conduit
Conductor in an orchestra pit
Consider me like a benefit
Here to rid you of your deficit
Like an unexpected tax credit
This here, my cockpit
Transporting us into orbit
Ya
Feel
Me

Dammit!

Yes I am The Great
No EST needed, other’s can’t equate
And I can see you filled with hate
So my pen stay ready to annihilate
But first, let me demonstrate
And if you missed it, you late
Cuz this Goddess don’t wait

My ink flows like a flood gate
Bringing you knowledge at a fast rate
You might just need to calibrate

Catch ya pens up, activate
I ain’t no lightweight
Too strategic to debate
But for you I will restate
My divine trait

Heavyweight
No paperweights
I leave bodies as I decimate
Inhale me like smoke let me permeate
Like baby mommas on section eight
Consider me the Head of State
I’m not here to liberate
Like raising the tax rates
This is Truth incarnate
And I’m only here to motivate
Ya
Feel
Me

Checkmate!

Prime Time

“To be inspiration is a great thing, but to be Inspired is Heaven.” – Kiana Donae

I love when I’m inspired by a fellow poet’s work. Especially when they are talented in their own right AND I call them friend. I’ve known Evie Storm for it seems like forever and I’ve always loved the passion she puts into her words. This is in response to her piece entitled, Gold Time which you can read HERE.

Prime Time

Come and be one with me, while we ascend to a level of supreme peace.
No intimacy out of our reach as we explore the vibrations of our being.
One body is ours
One rhythm
One tongue
One thought
One heart
One soul
One feeling
One love.
I want to roam within our walls
And paint masterpieces as our souls speak.
I only knew how to write of love that was told to me.
I only knew how to write of love that became nonexistent.
I only knew how to write of love that let me fully understand it.
So embrace this shit.
I acknowledge we are it.
We both commit.
Moon lit.
Smoked out. Marley “One Love” rasta flow.
Let’s get together, and never let go.
Our ending is our beginning as infinity goes
around the Earth’s axis, as our Universes juxtapose.

I won’t let go because I can’t let go, ever.
I’m yours, whatever, wherever, whenever, forever.

Let me kiss your soul.
Wrap my legs around your body,
Bestow you with my yoni to praise, cover you in Heaven for days.

The ‘whole’ of us is easy. Let’s be love.
The ‘whole’ of us is inscribed, so this is what we are deserving of.
The ‘whole’ of us is Whole, only we can be the love we are manifested of.
I wish we would.
You wish we could.
Everything is everything, so we should.

Purple Monsters

This is a piece I wrote last year about my feelings on my son having epilepsy. When he started having seizures we didn’t know that’s what they were, he always said he felt like he was turning into a monster. That is where the title came from and since Epilepsy Awareness ribbons are purple I put that together.

Purple Monsters

mommy i think i’ve got a “monster” inside me
it feels as if it’s controlling me
every time I start to shake
the “monster” seems to be awake

can you tell me why I feel this way
why I can’t control my arms or legs
whenever the “monster” comes out to play
can you please just make him go away

i don’t want this “monster” to come out and play
not here at school, no not today
i just want to enjoy my recess
and not have to sit down and rest

mommy could you put the “monster” in time out
and never ever let him come out
i’m so tired of the “monster”  inside me
i hope they find a cure for this, please…

My sweet child it’s killing me
I feel helpless and I feel weak
To watch the “monster”  take control
Leaves my heart with a gaping hole

Doctor can you please explain
Why my child has these things
Doctor can you put an end
To all the terrible things within

I can’t stand to watch my child like this
It all just feels like an evil trick
All I do is pray for an end
To the “monster” living inside him

Son I wish I could take this monster away
Right here and now, yes I would do it today
If my prayers are answered the “monster” will flee
I really hope they find a cure for this and soon…..Please.
