~Drunk in Love~

woke up with an amazing hangover!

nothing to get over

but your Love had me stumble walking & talking with a slur

i knew i felt a lil tipsy

& every time that you were near me

i felt myself getting more & more dizzy

i’m intoxicated by your love

my tolerance can’t go up

you got that potent, uncut, A-1

Sweeter than Rum

you make me feel like i’m floating on a cloud!

& until i hit the ground!

i think i’ll order another round!



you’re so dope!

much more than chronic

it’s ironic cause you’re my rock!

& why i’m hooked on you like phonics

i’m a junky for your love

you are my drug!

i’m so addicted

i can’t kick it


~Brown Penny~

I whispered, ‘I am too young,’

And then, ‘I am old enough’;

Wherefore I threw a penny

To find out if I might love.

‘Go and love, go and love, young man,

If the lady be young and fair.’

Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,

I am looped in the loops of her hair.

O love is the crooked thing,

There is nobody wise enough

To find out all that is in it,

For he would be thinking of love

Till the stars had run away

And the shadows eaten the moon.

Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,

One cannot begin it too soon.

~William Butler Yeats~

it is very challenging to love ignorant people…

especially when they are so quick to argue with you about a subject they know nothing about.

when you have personal experience in the matter or you’ve taken the time to research the information beforehand & study it & meditate on it

when you’ve had conversations with others about it already &/or have seen other people debate about it & point out very crucial points & undeniable facts

then to take the knowledge that you’ve obtained to your loved ones & TRY to actually SHOW them what you’ve learned with cited sources & all

only to watch them reject the knowledge from what i can only describe as “foolish pride”

then be told over & over things like “you think you’re so smart” or “you think you know EVERYTHING” or “you always gotta be right” or “you always wanna argue” etc…

but the truth is i’m simply trying to love!

& one thing i know is that when you love someone you don’t want them to be ignorant! you don’t want them making a fool of themselves in private or in public! i personally want MY PEOPLE to be ahead of the game!

i have a saying i’ve been using MY ENTIRE LIFE…

“you do not have to burn your hand if i’ve already burnt mine!”

& i say that because i LITERALLY burnt my hand on the stove as a kid checking to see if a burner would still be hot immediately AFTER i turn the fire off! IT WAS!! lol

so i chose from there to share any & every experience i have with my loved ones that are debating on going down any of the same roads that i’ve already been on!

the issue seems to be the fact that i’ve been down many many roads!

people WANT to have their own experiences! i get it!! i myself didn’t/don’t listen to EVERY little piece of advice that comes my way! honestly who does!?

but certain things just don’t sit well in my conscience if i don’t @ least try to warn my people about! but of course the choice is always ultimately up to the individual themselves…

but that’s not the issue…

the main issue is the people who get angry!

the people who talk bad!

the ones who turn around & slander your name from being so upset about the help you tried to offer that they rejected.

the ones who found out the hard way that you were in fact RIGHT! & their pride won’t allow them to speak to you anymore!

the ones who are determined to debate with you about any & every thing UNTIL they win an argument to PROVE to THEMSELVES that you are NOT perfect!! & that you DON’T know EVERYTHING!!

they’ve basically transformed themselves into your enemy!

but my intentions are/were to never make someone feel foolish or dumb in any way!

my intentions are/were always to simply INFORM! to share MY knowledge!

but it seems that the world we live in is setup to crucify those who have the knowledge…

so in turn i find myself by myself…

observing the world & it’s ignorance…

fighting thru the sadness of loved ones arguing & fighting over the pettiest things.

hating each other because everyone wants to go their own way & no one wants to hear the potential consequences of the path they’re choosing…

so here i am…



~THIS Love~
