Walk Away

I sit back with exasperating thoughts and recollect all that I've done.

I count my blessings from all my lessons and realize my life has just begun. Sometimes we have to be lost in order to find ourselves, and in the presence of company we can...

Land of the free.
Not so much when you're a woman.
We’re told in the national anthem “the land of the free and at the home of the brave”
One is true.
But it’s not the one you’d think.
Because it's not the land of the free.
It's a ‘home’ of the...

This is America, Know your name.

We’ve created connections through our society.
We’ve created our own reflection through personal rejection.
We’ve created love through affection.

The man in the moon

The world was mine

As I search the night skies
To find your smile

This time of year...

The Slippery Slope

The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v Wade.
You say so what, let the states decide women’s fate.
The Red states want to jail women
who get an abortion.
They ban abortions with no exception.
Will they jail women who miscarry?

Life Investment

Cast your bread upon the water,
You find after many days;
Sending a son or daughter,
They will find it that it stays.

Give a portion to seven,
You know not what disaster;
As the wrath comes from Heaven,
For you ignored the Master.
