Rooftop Sunshine

Chicago rooftop parking lots are so great for pictures. The views are great, but there's not too many people around to bother you while you snap away.

Just a quick word of wisdom before I go, remember this: there's always more than one way to get to a destination. Follow your own path to greatness.

Happy Birthday To Me!

A Poetic Letter to Me on my Birthday:

Happy birthday, beautiful girl!

You've grown up a lot haven't you?
You've seen a lot of life,
Its beauties and its pains...

Yet you never lost your laugh.
It is an honor to know you,
To be you.

I love you,
Without Resolve.

So, happy birthday to you. To me. Happy birthday, beautiful girl.

I love you, I do.
I do,
I do,
A thousand times,
I do.

I wore this little ensemble to a wedding recently. Honey Dip picked out the top and skirt, I put them together for a killer outfit :)

A Silent Prayer

8:13 A.M.

Do you hear, God?
The blood of my people cry out to you
as you did Abel?

Do you hear, God?
Centuries of black blood flowing in the streets...

Do you expect silent compliance,
a blind faith,
a stand still and wait for vengeance?

Are you there God?
For my future black babies.
For my brother.
For my husband.
For ME?

Are you there, God?
Do you hear, God?

10:13 A.M.
God, are you listening? 
Do you hear us? 
Me? My brothers? My sisters? 
Does your heart break with mine? 
Will you rise in action with us? 

Oh, God, do you hear?

3:13 P.M.
I am hurting.
I am tired.
How much more fight must we give?
How much more blood must we shed?

I fall into silent waiting.
The only sound is my heart beating, beating, beating.
But for how long?

How much longer does my heart, in all its blackness, have to beat?

Oh, God, do you hear that too?
