The Time I forgot my plants name


Was it?

Oh my

What can I say

To my amazement

I had forgotten the name

Of my money plant 

I watered her

Sometimes I would forget to, though

Like I would 'forget' to put a fresh candle on my altar

Or provide them with agua fresca

Thank you for staying loyal eggun

I had honestly forgotten her name

Olivia was it?


No it isn't Olivia

I scolded my...

You are so succulent

So seductive

Your prescence oozes

Love and spices

You bloom

Wild flower 

Bloom like saphire

Ember glow

From your honey eyes

Mama Bella

To my surprise

You are as divine

On the inside

as the outside facade

That glow ain't powder blush

Your soul is blushing

Sit back

And watch your soul glow

A One Night stand with the Royal Knight of Darkness

And then all of a sudden

I found myself 

Consumed by your energy

You had found me 

Non chalantly 

Like it was just another day

Another night

Just like all the rest

But deeply pained 

Alas was I

From all of the other non chalant Knights

You did not feel for life as deeply

As I could have yearned for

For you were me

And I am you, before

But now we are col...

I dance for the children of the world

I dance for the children of the world

I shake my ass for Mama Gaia

I jirate my hips for Oshun

I caress my breasts for Yemaya

Fertile rivers run and reside within my womb

You raped and tortured my sisters

Harassed and killed my brothers

In order to feed your selfish demons

So why I shake my ass I'll give you many, many reasons

I do it to activate my root chakra

I do it...

So there's this dude

And his name is Swilly

But I rather call him Papi

Saivon is his real name

Unique just like him

Smear is what he calls me

He gave me the name the day I met him

And after that it was a wrap

As time began to progress itself

I found myself caught inside of his charmful trap

His aura is like no other

Kind of like you are hypnotized

Like I'm lost ...

I never understood how

A stranger could care

I was never aware

Of your existence

I wasn't prepared for your

Entrance into my life

All I knew is that you

Have a son and a you have a wife

A big black man at

The age of 24

Randomly popped up at

My Uncle's side door

He had a pretty white smile

And braids that ran out of style

For quite a while

But for some r...

Thank You

Eye honestly never knew this day would come

But eye once asked God what should be done

When eye was down and blue

And she answered to me

In the voice of you

You said 

" I can't hurt you anymore, don't be mad"

Eye can't even believe it, it felt so bad

But baby please know that eye understood

You said

"Jill you gotta go ahead and find you a nigga that will treat you goo...

My Soul

My soul is Love

It is exuberant

It is abundant

Abundantly rich

Abundantly dancing around

In this vessel of mine

As all my ancestors

Rejoice in my name

Ashe! Ashe!

Love is kind

Love is untethered 

Love is in my soul

I am free

I am boundless

Abundance is my birthright

And I call it back home

I claim my power

Rightfully so

Into an infinite being

My Solar Return

You are the most beautiful 

Reflection of my soul

That I ever did see

Do you know what I mean, Baba Di?

I forgot a long time ago

That such phenomenal things

Express themselves and exist

Throughout, within and without of me

I am blessed beyond

My own awareness

Spirit is always three steps 

Ahead of the mind

I come into the knowing of God

More and more each and...

Where are you hiding?

Would you like to hear a story

About a child

Who knew the difference between

Love and hate

But it was, at the time, only mild

Oh the sweet atmosphere of love

So divine

So sad, she was ripped of its warmth

By the time she was nine

Confused and obliterated

She copied the demenor

Her mother demonstrated

She would mark the walls with blood

From her fists

And f...

My Mission

Like I don't feel as bad as I usually do

But I'm still bummed out I can't even explain it

Im sitting here like damn all of this is really true

Im so used to the bullshit I get numbed

With every situation

Sitting here contemplating 

Like damn I still got feelings for him

One of the seven deadliest sins

Adulterer, homewrecker, slut

All this shit got me stuck in a rut

To My Future Daughter

I just need someone to talk to 

Are you down to listen

Can I stare at you for days

And watch your eyes glisten?

I come from a broken home

No laughter, no love

Children all on their own

As I ache and cry

I reach for my phone

Hoping to hear your voice

But all I get is a busy tone

Being alone is my absolute and worst fear

As I sit in my room 

And fight back each...

Love Thyself

Some people tend to run from reality by avoiding challenges. They fail to examine themselves and understand who they really are. -Unknown

Why are you running from the very thing God created

When God made you she smiled and rejoiced 

She celebrated the masterpece of her creation

Hold your head up high and keep your dignity

No matter what you're faced with

You are much stronger tha...

My Mother

Insanity is when you love someone so much, you help them destroy you by trying to save them. -Unknown


Eye am insane for my Mother’s love

My Mother’s love

Is the love eye accepted into my heart

As my Mommy carried me, she fed me

Soothed me, protected me

And brought me

Into the physical plane healthy and safe

Thank you Mommy,

You are the first God eye know

My heart...

You are love

You are light

And divinity alike

Below and above

You are love and you are loved

Eye am God

The first King

Mama I thank you

For loving me

For you love the most dark parts

Of my soul

Where I am scared to venture

You already are

Where I haven't yet to go

You already be

So why?, I ask myself

Do I continue to fear thee?

Mental Slavery

No one gives a fuck

I don't give a fuck, you don't give a fuck

She dont give a fuck

So why are you crying?

Why are you sobbing in pain?

SIlently gasping for air that

You just said you don't give a fuck about

Like air is not abundant 

Like you are not abundance!

You don't give a fuck about your damn self

Your damned existence


And just where will y...

My void

Eye have something inside of me

That’s so undyingly hard to fill

And it’s crazy that something so psychological

Can feel so uncontrollably real

And that ‘What’s wrong?’ line

Sends me to a place of ‘Eye can’t really explain…’

There’s an ample amount of harmful things that eye feel

But yet nobody can be blamed,

or take the claim of this pain

That has been dawned upon me
