“I Want”

0

I had an interesting conversation with my mother this week regarding gratitude and the phrase “I want”, which immediately led me to 11:11 and making wishes as a child. For as long as I can remember, every time I had the opportunity to make a wish (birthday, dandelion, penny in the fountain, 11:11, etc.), I wished for the same thing […]

we all deserve, at some point in our lifetime to utter those words, both with pride and humility – simply as our truth – “because I can …”

My Special Gifts & A “Must Read” For Summer

0

Aside from our God given talents, I believe we all also have “special gifts.” Mine include: 1. Being able to walk into any store and pick out the most expensive item without looking at the price tags. 2. Making a mean cup of juice (see recipe below and ask my brother). 3.

Always Spot On

2

For those of you still waiting for the poem inspired by Alicia Keys, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a little longer. In the meantime, here’s one inspired shortly thereafter by the one and only Maya Angelou. Every time I hear her speak she is always spot on, and it makes me want to be a better person, and in […]

Thanks for the inspiration

0

I was feeling kind of bummed these past few days having not written a poem since the start of the New Year. After my holiday binge (I wrote four poems on Christmas Day alone – it was an emotional one for me), I think I was in writer’s withdrawal. Then, as I was scrolling along on Twitter, I came across […]

Disclaimer

So I started off the year with my first published piece (check out phillycurrent if you want to read it), and now I am officially declaring 2014 as the year I step out of my comfort zone and take my writing to the next level.

The Thing About Being A Writer

So here’s the funny thing about being a writer … you actually have to write. I know that may sound obvious at first, and then you’ll move on to stupid (duh), before finally settling on insane (isn’t the whole point of being a writer to write?), but for all of us out there that do consider ourselves writers, you know […]

Worth The Wait   Wait for me, My love. I know the days are long, And the nights are cold, But wait for me. I know it would be easy, To wrap yourself in another’s embrace, To fill the void of a now empty space, But wait for me. I know it seems like the day Our paths will cross […]
