Many know of Maya Angelo, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” and “Still I Rise“. I’m excited to share this since my previous post Poems Inspired by October. Here are 2 Black Caribbean-American Poets, Claude McKay (1889-1948) and Audre Lorde (1934 -1992).
I’d describe the need to cut my hair again as an intuitive feeling that won’t rest. So I pause and think, the answer is simply this, I gravitate towards less maintenance, a lady who prefers effortless, minimal, chic with an edge.
Lately, I’ve been in an upbeat mood and I am so happy and grateful for this space, and the motivation to write daily. I hope this page produces a positive response, and that you’re here because you too want change.
I’ve noticed that the best dressed belong to an elite club. Well I’ve never been part of the “club” it didn’t matter how well I arranged my clothing, I’ve always been a dork, and now as an adult, I – own – it.
Written by 2 Great American Poets:
“Each year of growth I realize. I’m not who I thought I was. To be completely transparent, who I am on display is a diluted version to adapt to each situation.
Why am I doing this? This question may come to mind while sorting and walking around the home and analyzing do I use this, have I used this in the past year and will I ever wear or use this again?
It’s Friday and I’m so glad to have a moment to sit and share my thoughts on this platform. I’m grateful for Blogtober, whoever created this idea, kudos to you. This structure of writing daily is appreciated and so helpful. Writing is my craft, discipline, my joy and this page is my classroom to learn and grow.
When I give myself the luxury to day dreaming even for a minutes sometimes it’s filled with worry, such as Yes I want that to accomplish this but how? What if I spent those few minutes focusing clearly about what I want, minus the worry and more energy on what and possibly when?
I’ve always been pro love whoever you want, do what makes you happy as long you’re not jeopardizing others, and treat others the way you want to be treated.
