I give to you my poetry; torn directly out of the pages of my diaries. Where I put ink to paper, expressed my most inner private feelings, where I wrote prayers to GOD, romantic love letters, poems, psalms, mantras and just ultimately let my gift of writing that GOD gave me take over my diary's pages. This poetry book is the writings from my very first diary out of many, many, many more. Volume one: Tears, Honey, Hip-Hop and Passion were written at the end of September of 2001 through all of 2002. After, the horrifying national tragedy of 9-11 everything had an expiration date stamp on it in my mind, and the reality of nothing will be forever resonated deep into my soul. I didn't
waste my precious breath on procrastination's road to nowhere. So, I started seriously documenting all the poems that were birthing out of my soul, archiving them and dating each one after they were finished; unaware and never knowing, or even having the intent; that one day I would share them with the world.
I was born in one of the steamiest, high humidity, and warmest months during the year; yes, August; in Houston, Texas. Writing poetry, songs, lyrics, drawing, painting, fashion design, and music has always been a part of my life since a very young age. I was in my school's talent show at the age of 10, entered the art shows, was in my middle school's band and sang in my high school's gospel choir. Creativity was always second nature to me. I have confidence that my poetry will resonate strength into your soul, and will be
comparably relatable to you; while opening your eyes wide to what real LOVE is in a relationship, and will be overwhelmingly heartfelt, and the words will feel engagingly alive right off the pages to you; while healing your own LOVE wounds from LOVING a man who continuously hurt you, because it did for me.
