No Way as the Way

​My way might not be your way.  But it’s okay, it’s alright.  Your way might not be my way But it’s okay, It’s alright Yea, I used to go to church But the church didn’t quench my thirst Mama taught me to put God first But she never tried to block my search I was…

….I wish I could hear you; I just know I’d know your voice. My heart would skip a beat as I turn around and think “Daddy”. To afraid to blink because there’s no way this is real. I just want to hear you say Camille…

Who am I?

You may think of me as a child. You may think of me as the one who got away. You may think of me as the one you’re forever grateful to be away from. I am a daughter, niece, sister, mother, aunt, granddaughter, cousin, and friend. I’m not sorry if I don’t fit in with…

RGS

My Ring. My only sibling tattooed on my body. My eldest. My everything. She is yet another soulmate of mine. My twin. My sister. A piece of my heart, with arms and legs freely roaming the world. Do you know how terrifying that is? I don’t know where I’d be without this woman. It takes…

Monthly Feature: The Possibilities

Snippet of something I’m working on… …What you will never understand is that when I broke your heart, my heart took a scar. You’ll never know how their love was too mend the mark, I took for you. If I do this right this time it’ll make up for my past crimes. Yet all you…

Sacred Treasures

Have you ever just sat back and reflected on the people you’ve experienced and encountered in your life? I was among the fortunate to know and remember both sets of my grandparents. I also was blessed to know my great grandmother. I’ve got great aunts (who are an extension of the divinity my grandmother left…

If only we could treat everyone and everything as if we should simply enjoy it while we can… Oh wait we can.

Nothing seems to ever have my full attention. I’ve been like this my whole life. Some days it can be overwhelming; most days it keeps me busy. Even as I write this I’m partially paying attention to the birds sing their morning songs. I’m enjoying the silence of my house before everyone is awake and…

Monthly Feature: The Possibilities

Snippet of something I’m working on… Do you know how terrifying that is? I don’t know where I’d be without this woman. It takes everything in me, to refer to her as a woman. In my eyes, she’s always still my baby. That’s probably why I feel I’m due some parental rights because when our…

Appreciate my honesty

No please, seriously appreciate my honesty. My delivery may not be the best approach but you have to appreciate my honesty. I could be yet another person in this world that not only continues to feed you BS but accepts your BS, too. I must be cut from a different cloth. I appreciate honesty. I…

While I was away…

“how do you find self-love? you dig. you isolate and you ache from being lonely. you heal. you accept, you look in the mirror and see God.”           Today is the first day of what I’m calling publicity/social media fasting. I’ve set accounts to private. I’ve deleted and blocked people. I’ve added people. I’ve uninstalled…

Our children are growing up

Just saying that out loud makes you acknowledge so many things. It makes you clearly see what you’ve done right and what you’ve done wrong. It makes you think, did you equip them for the world ahead? What do I still have time to cover? It makes you realize what areas of your life still…
