What She Needed vs.What She Wanted

She needed to be herself to love her for the person she was and the beauty and kindness within her.
What she wanted was him and them even though she was always trying to please him and apologizing even when she didn't know what for.
She needed to realize that she was strong enough to be alone and that she could make it on her own, she'd been doing it all her adult life.
She wanted to feel like like she felt when she was with him all the time when what she was feeling was good.
She needed to learn the difference between a want and a need.
She wanted to be strong, to be beautiful, to be successful
She needed to realize that she didn't need the justification of others, that in her own ways she already was each of those things and more, to insulate her hart and not let the pain change her.
She wanted to be strong enough to do it.

It is with heavy heart I acknowledge the passing of Amiri Baraka. I am heartbroken, I discovered his work years ago and it was he who in part helped to give birth to who I am as a writer. I was blessed to have had the honor of meeting him some years ago and he asked jokingly if we were related. He asked me to sign my book for him. He was a light and will be missed.

To whom much is given much is expected in return
Life is the harshest of teachers with the most important

Life is a world wide drama and the whole world is it's stage

Only those who pass it's tests yet remain...

I want only by the best for what's mine for what I bore organically and inorganically. I cannot and will not tolerate disrespect towards mine.

I have been but sleeping, I am far from dead
attempting to commandeer that which is mine
will lead you to a world of regret.
I'm nowhere new to the game, I've been in it for years
Determined as the fiercest warrior I will protect what's mine Stronger than I ever was fortified by past tears.

You Were There / Where Were You

You were there:
When I used to run the streets with my girls
when I got my first sports car
You were there:
When I finished my undergrad and masters within 3 years.
When my pockets were deep and my friends well gifted.
but
Where were you:
When the man who vowed till death do us part left me black, blue, and bruised?
When I got the diagnosis that would change my life for the rest of my life?
When I lost my job?
When I was in the hospital and thought I would die?
Where were you, when I needed you?

Predator

Oh high and holy preacher
so called man of God
why don't you tell the truth for once
admit to who and what you are.

Seducer and manipulator your marriage bed
many times defiled a calculating predator
behind your the doors of the church are open smile.

Goes to show God can use anything
look at the emotional carnage you leave
in your wake
You have no concept of love
your words are lies,
you don't do what you say.

I will never understand how you can stand
to do the things that you do when
you have daughters and a granddaughter
someone can do the same things to.

Maybe you were right and
maybe you should have gone to jail
How many others would have been saved
from your own personal brand of hell?

Remember what you do to others
one day again you will see;
you ignore the golden rule
you need to practice what you
preach.

But, Then, The End

If you come into my house
I'll offer you a seat
try to make you feel at home
offer you something to drink or eat.
that is all because my momma
raised me right.
But
If you come into my house
and after I've done all of this
you don't have the good sense to say
thank you and act like I don't exist.
Then
You need to get yo azz to steppin
you just invited yourself out
you must have lost your freaking mind
I'm the woman of this house.

You may disrespect me in my house one time
but trust it will not happen again
Let the door knob hit ya where the good lord split ya
Get the hell out
The End.

Pen A Tale

Let's write a book together
pen a tale with me
we can go where ever we want
be who ever we want to be;
we don't have to be tethered by the restraints
of decorum or reality.

You could be a lord
and I your genteel lady.
Or I could wear the white hat
while yours could be black and shady.

We could be like Scarlett and Rhett
and laze under the magnolia tree all day
or like in the little black book you could be my lover
and I your sexual slave.
Black is so much more intense than any shade
of gray.

What ever we decide to be
I'll be by your side
Where ever we decide to go
I'll go along for the ride.

Broken

I don't know what I want
but I know it's not your sympathy;
or maybe I know I may never have what I want
so I feel bad for me.
Which means I don't need you to.

Sometimes it's calming to listen to you breathing
or just the soothing sound of your voice;
I never meant to love you
but in that it seems I have no choice.

When your down and feeling blue
I want to be the one you can turn to
but if I'm weak you won't.

I missed the death of what died
though the words still spoken
Don't fear me or treat me like I'm broken
because I'm not broken
much.

I know I can turn to you
when I'm hurtin
but I don't want my love to
become a burden
and that's the reason why
when you ask me what was going on
I said nothing
and lied.
