dis tew much

Dis tew much? Do me a favor and love me unconditionally. Is respect too much to ask for? Don’t take me as a joke. Is the idea of you and I together forever too far fetched? Jumping the broom is laughable…right? Maybe dreams are for kids. Silly. Will you love me as hard as you make love to me? Will you stop beating around the bush? Is it too much to ask for a direct answer? I don’t feel like dancing. Where is the finish line? Continue reading dis tew much

Harlem

By Langston Hughes What happens to a dream deferred?       Does it dry up       like a raisin in the sun?       Or fester like a sore—       And then run?       Does it stink like rotten meat?       Or crust and sugar over—       like a syrupy sweet?       Maybe it just sags       like a heavy load.       Or does it explode? Source I hope you’ve missed me. I’m done putting things off. I’m done procrastinating. I’m going to do better as a writer, blogger, journalist. Continue reading Harlem

Still I Rise – Maya Angelou

Still I Rise You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirtBut still, like dust, I’ll rise.Does my sassiness upset you?Why are you beset with gloom?‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wellsPumping in my living room.Just like moons and like suns,With the certainty of tides,Just like hopes springing high,Still I’ll rise.Did you want to see me broken?Bowed head and lowered eyes?Shoulders falling down like teardrops.Weakened by my soulful cries.Does my haughtiness offend you?Don’t you take it awful hard‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold minesDiggin’ in my own … Continue reading Still I Rise – Maya Angelou
