“When I am writing, I am trying to find out who I am.”

She is a soul that will be ever remembered in human history. She did not die in vain, she left a legacy for us to follow; especially our women. #TakeNotesNotSelfies #YallGonLearnToday

Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.

Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin — find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that it was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.

When I am writing, I am trying to find out who I am, who we are, what we’re capable of, how…

Selfless Prayer

Dear Lord,
Things are falling into place.
Your grace and mercy gave me faith when I thought I had lost all hope. For those who entrust in me I give all glory to you. I don’t do it just for me and I couldn’t have done it without you.

Lost & Found

I’m thankful for the struggle, the hardships, for not getting all that I’ve ever wanted. Everything I’ve ever wanted came with a price tag and at the time I was broke. I was forcing pieces 👾 into my life that didn’t fit my puzzle.

I’m thankful for the lost and forgotten black angels that prayed for me. I may not know all of my history but it’s there laid out for me to take heed to the idea—confidence exudes cockiness; greatness was stolen from me so there’s nothing to be ashamed of.

What doesn’t kill you truly makes you stronger. Waking up everyday is half the battle won. Put on the full armor of God. Renew your mind for everyday is a new battle, and take charge. Be humble but stay hungry. #ConfidenceIsSexy #StepItUp #SeeYouAtTheTop


There are hurting people everywhere, but at times we just don’t know what to say or do to ease their pain. Here are six practical ways to bear someone else’s burden.

Be there. At times the best “method” of helping is simply to be present. During our darkest hours, we don’t need someone who tries in vain to fix everything; we just need a friend.

Listen. Don’t attempt to give answers or tell people what to do next. Injured souls frequently want simply a listening ear so they can express what’s on their mind.

Share. Never parade yourself as someone who has all the answers. Instead, allow your own pain and failures to help others.

Pray. There is power in speaking people’s names before the Lord. When they hear someone talk to Jesus on their behalf, healing often starts taking place.

Give. Sometimes helping others involves more than a handshake or warm hug. Maybe they need something financial or material. One of the best measures of sincerity is how much we’re willing to give to others.

Substitute. You may know an individual who bears the burden of caring for someone else. If you step in and take his or her place for a while, you are emulating your Savior—He, too, was a substitute.



…is a channel through which one can see the negative & positive in ALL situations of life. As TDE artists’ Kendrick Lamar puts it, “I see through my third eye.”

Self confidence exudes a sense of happiness and security. But when challenged by doubt and ignorance of friends and loved ones, we are subject to check ourselves and not those who claim to know us so well.

You have to be strong enough to believe and stand behind the decisions you make no matter the opinion of a loved one.
