Hello, I am wishing you all a beautiful inspiring week ahead.
I write, I hope, I dream, I inspire, I cultivate and nourish the life I’ve built. Succeeding is not an option because the work is already done. Improving, growing and learning is a must because I put the necessary work in to make it a reality. Never underestimate the pure power of hard work and dedication.

My poetry book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. If you’ve picked up a copy, I would love to hear from you.
It’s such a joy to share one of my poems from Page 113 of my new poetry book Sackcloth & Silk.
We don’t bleed the same My blood is black and blue It carries the venom of past lovers And play God with the sacrifices Of my ancestors It has extinguished the light From my eyes and kept me chained For far too long We don’t feel the same I’m immortal to pain I’ve crucified the emotions That held me captive I’ve walked through fire I’ve stared down giants I’ve watched them fall at my feet I’ve aborted the truth From my tongue We don’t hurt the same My hurt is from a deep place A cemetery of broken hearts Broken past Broken dreams A cycle repeating itself From generation to generation My pain has found a home Amongst gravestones So Tell me what you know about sacrifice And I’ll tell you how I became A chain breaker
