The Cuervo Effect

Jose… Why do I reach for you when my soul’s dehydrated? Knowing I need to quench my thirst, I call your name. When others reject you, I sing your praises. I love you. You burn slow, but I’m still here. You challenge my existence and take me to new heights at dangerous depths, But from…

Gender-fied

On a quest to manifest my destiny, the stress in me has me questioning my life’s authenticity, so don’t judge me please and pardon me, if I rather chill in the garden with eve.

Weeping Willow

Lessons never hurt so good. Make me grow as a woman as I knew they would. Teach me what I need to know. Help me find the courage I needed to grow. Sometimes, I cry like a weeping willow. Tears fall in my pillow, I try hard not to let them go. Too much pride,…

Confessions Part 1 (The Realization)

I love money. There I said it. I love the finer things, exotic even. I have a need for speed, although there are those in need, my hunger bleeds for more. Penthouse style lofts, the finest wine, double time, yeah that’s me. I tried the whole minimalist thing, it worked, I woke, I gave, I…

There is an internal battle taking place within my body’s fortress. I can feel the tension in my hands. The knots in my stomach. Stress is striving for victory. Unbeknownst to me,…

My Psalm

My call echoed over the mountaintop into the valley and then, I heard a voice speak to me. It spoke not with words but with calm. The joy that came over me allowed me to walk on water and depart the troubled seas I’d been tasked to maneuver through. It reassured me that I was…

Seedling

I blossom if you stay rooted in me.

Frequency

Fall into the melody and allow the sound waves to carry you to the tune of now. Allow the vibrations to uplift your spirit and lead you to truth. Cultivating simplicity which cultivates peace which frees you from the burden of you. For it is all repetition. The way the waves of sound travel over…
