My Wings Have Arrived

I’ve been changing, different phases of the moon different faces, different chapter of my life changing phrases, slowly growing up with time I’m just waking, Shallow words slowly dripping from their mouth Just cascading, Their bad thoughts spinning round They just hating, I’m just chasing big bright dreams I’m just grateful. Grateful for everything, I’m…

Silver and Gold

The silver sky is tranquil as it prepares to open up its soul and bless the many grounds and lands with natures food. Slowly, drip by drip drops of honeysuckle like rain fall out of its mouth and into the waiting arms of the patient trees and sleeping willows. Each drop filling in the faint…

In the Stars

Year of Growth

2017 was the year of growth.  It was the year of lessons, of understanding, of exploration, of loving others and ourselves. 2017 was the year we needed in order to prepare for the unimaginable blessings that are coming in 2018. 2017 was the year I needed in order to surpass my own expectations and aspirations….
