Authors: DO NOT DO YOUR OWN BOOK COVER! The first picture is what I came up with for the Love Lost cover. I bought the roses from Walmart, I had the grey fabric, I used the lights from my photo cube, and took the pics with my phone while trying to keep two fur heathens back. I really thought I was doing something. And then I found @beckyssketchbook! She did the second picture and that is how the Love Lost cover came about!

Affirmation one: I am more than enough on my own, I am a source of light all alone. 
From now on I will be uploading my affirmation for the day, this will either be in a poetic form or a quote form. I will also be posting my normal poems. This change is for no other reason than I want to share my daily reminder and affirmation for myself and whoever else needs to hear it. Let’s see how this goes 🖤 •

I have found out that Plan A is not always the best plan. More often, Plan A has been my plan and not God's Plan...that's why it didnt work. 
My new process, write out my plan, pray over it and ask God to direct my path. I LISTEN for the response and I am OPEN to changing the plan, even if I dont understand it. 
That's FAITH.

In the words of the gr8 comedian @comedianboogieb: come here let me stress you out. Also, the gr8, comedian and feature dancer, @kountrywayne let that sizzle in your spirit:. -#Repost @prince.r.nelsonn (@get_repost)
Prince supported and mentored countless people, particularly women of color and used his platform to help boost their careers. Erica Kennedy was one of those people. The talented author recalled how she attempted to get her work published in InStyle magazine in 2000, which was a difficult task. Because it was during a time when black women writers weren't as visible in mainstream media. “I had just started writing professionally after quitting my PR job at Tommy Hilfiger. I had sent my clips to InStyle and one Friiday afternoon they left me a frantic message. Turns out they wanted me to interview The Artist (as he was called then) and it could happen at any moment so they wanted to have me on standby. Of course, I’m psyched but I’m also suspicious because they had never worked with me and I was so green. So I asked, ‘why me?’ They tell me he specifically asked for an African-American female writer. And I thought out of the whole Time, Inc. network, I’m all you got? At that point in my career anybody would have been more qualified than me! So in my book, the idea that Sydney is offered this cushy contract even though she was previously just a temp. Is derived from the fact that I got drafted into the big leagues under the Prince Rogers Nelson affirmative action plan.” - Erica Kennedy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Erica published 3 books since her big break after that interview: “Bling”, “The Tides That Bind” and “Feminista”. By 2004, She became a New York bestseller. And by 2010, was on the list of most influential African-American’s. But sadly her career came to a stop when she was found dead at her home two years later. The cause of death was unknown, but close sources revealed that it could’ve been a suicide from the depression that she had. #rip 👼🏽#blackwriters #blackhistory #PrinceRogersNelson

The cause of death was unknown, but close sources revealed that it could’ve been a suicide from the depression that she had. #rip 🏽#blackwriters #blackhistory #PrinceRogersNelson - 6 hours ago

“Thursday morning my Granny passed away. Currently, I’ve been a wreck to say the least. Numb inside yet I’m still figuring out ways to function by completing my grad assignments and consistently being there for my family, all while coping the loss for myself as well. 
Friday, I laid around feeling weird. I felt anxious. Due to not being able to believe that my Granny passed away. This is one of the hardest pills to swallow, it’s harder than finding out that a guy I have/had feelings for got a girlfriend via social media (which I found out today— the irony.) 🤷🏽‍♀️
Anyway, I’ve been wanting a tattoo since last August (my birthday) and I’ve been tossing and turning on what I wanted to get and if I wanted to get it at all.
When my granny passed away, everything she’s taught me jolted in my spirit. For years, she told me “Live your life girly,” and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Which is why I got up this evening , grabbed my cousins and we went to a tattoo parlor. At the parlor, I told the tattoo artist the meaning behind my tattoo. Then she introduced herself by telling me her name. Immediately, I broke down crying because her name is my Granny’s. And she’s a painter just like my Granny. I was shook and said to myself, as it registered “My Granny is giving me my very first tattoo.” .
.
“That was my first time, and I took it like a champ. It didn’t hurt, and I felt the meaning behind this tattoo. (My Granny did it for me) and the beautiful thing about it is that Granny and I are Leo’s. She’s July 23rd & I’m August 4th.”
.
.
“And this tattoo is a symbol of my Granny & I. Also, it’s my first stepping stone. To finally, live my life authentically, & ultimately have zero regrets.” .
.
Moral of this post: “Embrace change. Always cherish who you are, & always give yourself room to grow beyond ways that you’ve ever imagined.” 💕 .

It is amazing 
The relationship between 
Salt and water
.
The way they Mix and
simultaneously 
resist each other
.
The way they save and 
Pull things in
.
The way they season, 
Adding texture and flavor 
To an otherwise bland sea
Full of magical creatures
.
It is a teaching combination
Lessons of how to go with the flow 
While avoiding the terrible tides
.
It is a teaching combination 
Lessons that speak about how
What can make you drown 
Can also allow you to float 
If you can relax yourself into 
The chemistry

Every now and then ...actually more than that we must take time aside for ourselves to recenter. Remember who we are, our purpose, our plans and re-educate ourselves about ourselves & meditate on the morals we stand on. In this day and age we have sooo many distractions preventing us from doing just that. It can definitely do more hurt than help , so I’m taking this time to re-evaluate and recharge so that I can continue on towards my evolution . I’ll miss the humor I find in desperate times and all the insight i tend to run into on IG, but it must be done. I’ll see you loves soon 😘 Don’t forget about me 😂☺️ @edens_evolution @edens_evolution @edens_evolution

In honor of Black History Month I want to pay homage to the few who have inspired me and the work that I’ve created. Thank you Ralph Ellison, James Weldon Johnson, Langston Hughes, Malcolm X, James Baldwin, and the amazing Nikki Giovanni. Your contributions to the literary world as well as your blue print for change as a collective have allowed me to freely and unapologetically make my own mark.  #blackhistorymonth #writersofinstagram  #blackwriters #blackhistory

Beauty 
1930s Jamaica: Her daddy was a white man

He’s a blue black i tell you
a black so blue you can’t see
through or around him 
if you saw him and you were simple
you would comment on the lightning
nature of his smile
how white, glistening and blinding
it was to the eye 
but it warmed me all over
i could not hesitate
when he called me
i came
all my insides
open and welcoming 
he’s a blue black I tell you
somehow i can’t explain it
he’s even blacker than my mother 
when he walks
the earth opens
at the pressure from his footsteps
the ground spits up water 
he’s a blue black i tell you
even now before it happens
i hear the words echo  somehow i can’t explain it
he’s even blacker than my mother
and for that my daddy is shaming 
he’s a blue black i tell you
even blacker than my mother
my daddy’s face alabaster
his blue eyes bleeding fire 
he’s a blue black i know this
yet still I can’t explain it 
when he crossed my line
of vision
all I wanted was
to bask in his shadow
take breath in his nighttime
rest my head against his marrow
surrender myself to the shade
of his tree

I love finding clips of exceptional people like Writer Alice Walker. “So in the end you can’t even really regret your misfortunes, because they led you somewhere”

So, I was doing a little research, a read up really, on the history of Jamaica for a story I’m thinking of writing; & I came across these pictures of some of the citizens of Jamaica, and thought, ‘Ah, that explains it.’ The first photo of the 3 gents is of Jamaicans freshly arrived in England in the 30s; the 2nd? I don’t know where he’s from, but I stuck it in cuz his beauty, like that of the men in pic 1, represents the man in the poem I’m about to post. Pic 3 reminds me of the dignity, kindness & strength of my paternal grandmother; pic 4 is the rude awakening, what people went thru and the brutality of the experience. Meanwhile, the family in pic 5 is the dead stamp of my mom’s dad and his family in St. Elizabeth.They’re Jamaicans of German descent in St. Elizabeth or Westmoreland. We grew up reveling in the Jamaican national motto ‘Out of many one people.’ We were taught to take pride in that and to believe that Jamaicans saw ourselves as Jamaicans first before any other distinctions, but there was a hierarchy.There was value  attached to certain features, complexions and hair texture. Though, it was true, the blackest black man could rise up in Jamaica (usually, of course he’d get a browning, Chinese, Indian or someone of admixture for a wife,) My family clung to this belief of pride and togetherness born out of that mosaic - most Jamaicans will tell you ‘We have everyting in our family.’ They say it like they’re boasting. In looking at these pics, I see the tension born out of their position in society. The photo of the German descendants, so no nonsense and severe - much like the attitude I remember of some of my family. Though it was said that everyone got on well -aka, there was no color distinction...’Everybody jus a work hard to create a life for them family.’ I can see in the face of the Germans the line they were holding; how much they thought they were staving off, the life they were enduring and protecting. And I can see in the face of the woman who looks like my paternal grandmother, how much she was bearing, to say nothing of the brutality of the people in the other picture. Note: I’ll post the poem separately; not enuf room for it in this post.

So, I was doing a little research, a read up really, on the history of Jamaica for a story I’m thinking of writing; & I came across these pictures of some of the citizens of Jamaica, and thought, ‘Ah, that explains it.’ The first photo of the 3 gents is of Jamaicans freshly arrived in England in the 30s; the 2nd? I don’t know where he’s from, but I stuck it in cuz his beauty, like that of the men in pic 1, represents the man in the poem I’m about to post. Pic 3 reminds me of the dignity, kindness & strength of my paternal grandmother; pic 4 is the rude awakening, what people went thru and the brutality of the experience.

The beauty of a mother in one picture!
May your child be blessed with greatness, that all the positive things of this life will be their portion, all the sweat and tears will produce beauty and elegance, you stand there effortlessly glowing with melanin, the strength of a black mother portrayed in such an image, reminding us why a mothers love is so essential, why a mothers prayer is the only armor we truly need, and why without a mothers touch, we won’t ever know what being cared for truly means, may the generations of blessings before you continue on, the centuries of philosophies and teachings, Black Mothers, teaching us, shaping us, protecting us, and forever loving us, thank God for BLACK MOTHERS, for eternity • #Repost @kopongspeaks
