Confessions The tiles are calling the names of every mystic that devoted their life to them Have I been gone for long? Among the wires, the screens and the neon lights Lost my compass needle, my North Star Like a child still clinging to the blue and yellow lights he sees hanging on the trees Confessions are the reason I came, for my heart has sinned and loved the untouchable rays of the sun The priest pointed home But I don't want to go home yet, I want to still play with the waves and give the birds a run for their effort And is that the locus you are summoning me for? My home is far away, where the stakes are high and the rocks are higher, that's where I want to be You can't put a chain on a free wing nor take a wild bird for a pet With direction trees and wind, I can't be tamed But maybe the sun will say that this sunset is not for us That she has wasted the rays with the dust then we will perish in the dark Shall then perish in the dark... #Poetry #reflections #GoWithFlow #jUMP Photo credits go to @fadja.katharina

With my son’s third birthday approaching, I’m in all my feelings...looking back at old pictures, thinking how quickly these 3 years went by. . . . I’ve made the decision not to show his face on social media. I don’t think I’m a celebrity, nor am I waiting for a moment to do an grand reveal. . . . I’m preserving his innocence, protecting him from the screenshots, from being the topic of discussion in group chats due to his father’s indiscretions. No need to worry who he looks like, he’s got my eyes. . . . I found some strength in not posting, I’ve taken the power away from ppl who otherwise would have him all up and down their timeline. We live in world where ppl OVERSHARE. He’s not a secret, he’s my TREASURE. I’d rather have him look away then be that weirdo who puts a giant emoji over his face. Those who see him, are those who are a part of our lives, or just ppl who ran into us while we’re out 😹 . . . #mommyandme #mommymoments #mommymotivation #momsofcolor #momsofboys #bla#blackmomske #blackmoms #blackboyjoy #nofacenocase #mindyourbusiness #blackgirlmagic #brooklynmom #reflections
