Wordlust: Midnight Lament

Midnight Lament 12/25/2010
I feel conflicted
My words can't be depicted
I feel listless, abound in misery
Shelter me from the storm
I find solace in the eye
Give me strength, give me power
Unyielding power over my enemies!
Help me, help as I call out to you
I yearn for the strength of ten thousand Greek Gods
Blind and useless my life, along as I plod
Plan, plans and nothing ever sticks
My feelings, emotions, weighing me down
Getting me all lost in the mix
Fire, fire burn me to the tenth degree
Wet, soggy but grounded like a tree
A part of the earth, I find myself wanting to be free
Breeze, in the breeze I calmly flow
Planting my seeds and watching them grow
Raise my hands high into the sky
All I desire is my piece of the damn pie
So I work, and I work hard
Blood, sweat, and tears
I will not succumb to my fears
You will never know my weakness
You can never bring on meekness
I will fight, and I will scream
Shout it out loud so the Heavens can hear me!
See me! Feel me! Free me! Become a part of me
Brown skin and curly coils
Different from the others, but drawn to one another
Torn between two different worlds
Failing, falling, but always battling
Never giving up the good fight
Always, always trying with all my might
I feel distraught
Drowning in a pool of my own sorrows
Always been that way, this way, since I can remember
Always trying to convince myself it'll be better tomorrow
Tomorrow everything will be okay
Tomorrow things will be right as rain
Tomorrow you'll awake with no pain
I'm always focusing on tomorrow,
Forgetting about today
I blinked for far too long,
And tomorrow never came

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
