Portraits with Pizazz

I wanna hear your voice
Whatever words
You wanna say
I wanna hear
Don’t care if
You talk
About the weather
Or yourself
And if you wish
To not speak
Then be here
Beside me
Happy to
Listen to
Your silence

Portraits with Pzazz!

I thought

About contemplating

Then decided

Thinking too much

Is overrated…

Seize the day!


La Vie en Rose

You’re my favorite

My very, very favorite

Person in the whole wide galaxy

Because with you

I feel safe being me

My little girl dreams

Are still cherished

By my woman’s heart

One day

Very soon

I know

They will be

My reality

And then the day came

When I stopped

I stopped

Dancing for a song

That never paid me dignity

And on that day

I said

I am significant

Then I reached out

And I took it

I took my worth

I took my grace

I took my respectability

I wrote my own song

This song

I can dance to

Proud

 

 

 


Behind the Scenes

La Vie En Rose

Her

The One

Whom his heart holds

That would be

Me!

Portraits with Pzazz!

Every story

I’ve ever lived

Recorded by my

Beating heart

Speaks no language

Man can decode

Unless he looks

Into my eyes

Those windows

To the pages

Of my soul

It would take

His lifetime

And then some

To read

Carefully

Through them all


La Vie En Rose

You had my heart

From jump

‘Cause that’s what it did

When we met

It went jump

Love at first sight

Always sounded

Like a fairyfable

Then you arrived

I learned

It wasn’t make-believe

You were real

If I could bottle timeI’d bottleThe smoothness

Of my young beauty

Fresh on my facade

And only wear

Timely wisdom earned

That comes with

Fine lines

Gray hairs

Sagging breast & butt

Tucked away in my soul

Then again

Hidden inside

There’s be no testimony

Showcase God to the world

Of battles fought

Victories won

Knowledge learned

So instead

I’ll bottle time

Inside my soul & mind

Won’t matter

What the years tell

On my skin

Heart forever young

Then


Behind The Scenes




Behind The Scenes

They say love is a war

Fair or not

I say my heart’s stuck on you

Until my last breath

Beyond eternity

I’ll fight & pray for you


La Vie En Rose

You!

You are who I love

All of you

Unconditional

There’s no one else

No where else

I prefer

So happy

Making you happy

I absolutely love you

YOU!

Got a smile on my face

A twinkle in my soul

A little swag in my stride

Faith in new beginnings

Working out

In favor

Of my destiny


Portraits with Pzazz!

I rolled up 

On my goals

Like what’s up?

That’s what’s up

Making my life happen 


Portraits with Pzazz!

Art

Is my language

Running

Through my veins

Dripping

Off my fingertips

Born

To create

By my creator

Beauty

So many forms

Beholden

I am the beholder


Portraits with Pzazz!

And the beat goes on
Pulsating through my soul
Pushing me
Driving me
Forward into
Places I never imagined
I would be able to go


Portraits with Pzazz!

I’ve been struggling
Like a mule
All my life
It was what it was
One gray day
Daddy up & died
Leaving
A foreign widow
In a foreign land
No English
Nine hungry children
Did what I had to do
Thirteen
Walked out of school
Buckled on
My grown-up shoes
Washing, cooking, scrubbing
Made my way to Philadelphia
Just to mail home
A few green dollars
Paid daddy’s debts
Put bread on the table
Family stayed together
I
Struggled like a mule

fullsizeoutput_12952Gimme back my shyt

Yah that’s right you heard me

I want my shyt back

And you’re gonna give it back

Now, right now

I didn’t pour all my heart

Into a dream to have nothing

The dream’s mine

Meant only for me

What’s mine is mine

God’s gift to me

It’s not yours

So you can’t have it

You can’t keep one sliver of it

Devil be gone

You came to steal, kill, destroy

My dream home build on love

I’m taking it back

Lock, stock, barrel

You think you’re getting away

With all my shyt

But so help me God

You’re dropping my shyt

Gimme back my shyt

Oh never mind

I’ll just scratch it

Myself
