Slur- Daily Prompt

Stay true to you

Speak your mind

Even if your words

slur open your

mouth and speak

your mind


Fight for what you

believe whilst

Living your purpose

Embrace your purpose

Fight not be right

But to be in union

With others


Preach love

Preach unity

Even if your voice

Quake and your

Words slur stand up

Tall and say No when

You mean No


You do not have

Please everyone

So speak your mind

Even if your words slur

Speak, even if they ignore

You, don’t ignore yourself!

Poem: A Black Man for A Black Woman

Poem: A Black Man for A Black Woman


I refuse to compete
For you as my help-meet.

I cannot be her lightened complexion,
I do not have her hair or lengthening extensions.

There is no white mixture
And my curves are permanent fixtures.

These features of blackness
Came from a long line of Princesses,

And Pharaoh Queens!
My eyes are as dark as coffee beans.

My broad nose of comeliness and knowledge,
And my voluptuous black-cherry lips do not speak rubbish.

I cannot and will not compete
For you as my help-meet.

I wish you can see yourself in my eyes
And see you are worth more than your compromise.

Your complexities and low self-esteem
Detracts from your kingship and rebukes your queen.

I’m your “blacker the berry sweeter the juice”
Plus I would give you a daily vitamin C boost.

Strengthening you when you’re weary of this life
And we can wail together of this burdensome strife.

Mirror, Mirror

Yesterday I saw

A friend that I walked

Passed last week,

Funny enough she walked

Passed me too, today.


Today I went to work

And said nothing to my

Coworkers when they

Tried to speak to me


The next day I went

back to work and nobody

Said a word when I tried

to speak to them


Why is everyone acting

This way? I asked myself

I shouted at the waitress

at the bar and when I got

Home my husband shouted

At me.


Why is everyone acting

this way? I asked myself

It’s like I walk around with

Mirrors of myself


No one seems to know

Better or act better than

Me. I guess I should be the

First to change what I see

In the mirror


Today as I walked

To work, I smiled at

everyone I saw and they

Smiled back to me and

Now everyone is smiling

At me, what changed?

I changed!

I changed

so everyone Changed

How to simplify and authentically grow your blog without spending money – Reblog

Blogging is now a viable career option and there are endless examples of bloggers who have monetised their site to the point where they can quit their 9-5 job and live the dream. Consequently, the bloggosphere (blogisphere? blogosphere? There really should be some clarification on this) is filled with ‘Earning Reports’ (which I often ignore), […]

Love me all the 365 days



There is 365 days

In a year, yet you

Choose to show me

More love in one day


Should I cook, clean

and take care of you

more one day a year too?

Is it fair that only

One day counts

More than the other

364 days I profess my

Love through my actions?


See I want your love

But I want it for all the

365 days no less, no more!

Love me all the 365 days

And I will be on my

best behaviour 360 degrees

how you want me


Love me each day like

It’s valentines day, shower

Me with gifts, be enthusiastic

About the mornings like it’s

Valentine’s day


See how would you love

Me if valentines day

Didn’t exist? have you

Thought of that?

Let’s pretend valentines

Days didn’t exist

How would you show

me your love?

Think about it

Love me more all the

365 days not

just one day ❤
