Portraits with Pzazz!

fullsizeoutput_19941

Gray

The land of nowhere

Found tiptoeing

Between

Great heavy shadows

Holding hostage

Fearful what if’s

And the light

Bare naked brightness

Secrets once

Owned in terror

No more

Have power

Release

Peace

Freedom

Life


Portraits with Pzazz!

The breeze

Carried

My ancestor’s prayers

Eternal words of

Blessing

Breathed in

My first infant cry

Twined

With my DNA

We are forever one


Portraits with Pzazz!

Studying myself

From a view

Of self-peace


Portraits with Pzazz!

There’s layers to my depths

And depths to my layers

Arrangements of silence, sounds, letters, words

Building, stacking, mounting

One pause, one syllable, one moment at a time

Spinning out from

My soul’s innermost core

Bursting into life

The moment they touch air

Traveling through galaxies

Beyond the universe

Beyond time

You will tell everyone

How you prayed

And how I answered

Love,

God

Look!

You see?

When you serve me

I will put you in places

You could not otherwise go

I will place you

In palaces you can’t afford


God’s Got the Whole World in His Hands

My soul

Is dead without you

You alone

Give it nourishment

Give it strength

To rise from my bed

Each new dawn

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

I am stepping

Into

The petticoats of my dreams

Sailing away

On winds of the fate

Towards

The lands

Where I truly belong


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

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

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!

No thank you.

I’ll pass.

 


Behind the Scenes

 

 

Truth or dare

Would you rather

Say I do

Sell me your soul

Live to see another day

Or die in this battle

To the hounds of Hell

I’ll release on you

Ha! Sucker!

Either way I own

Your destiny

So do you dare

Life or death with me


La VIe En Rose

IMG_8623

Don’t need you to be perfect

All I need is you to be the perfect man for me

Love me enough

To not want to live without my loving

You be the present & future

The one who makes my heartbeat sing

My smile glow

Secure in knowing you’re for real

No matter which way life goes

I’m gonna love you

Love you like never before

Straight outta my heart

Throw back my head

Kick up my heels

Laugh from the bottom of my soul

Fully love living this life

Free


NYC Streets

Because I love you
I go 10.000 extra miles & beyond
Only for you
Pray for you morning & night
Before I even think to pray for myself
My kindness is patience
I forgive you when I get angry
Be a fool or be wise to give you my best
Either way giving is my pleasure
All because I love you


Behind the Scenes

I was born
With the stars
In my eyes
A million dollar baby
Even if
No one realized it
I knew it
The stars knew it
My future knows it
