Living as though
I hoard all I
 Have to give,
 My quiet hesitance
 Is decadent.
 For my purpose here
 Is unclear.
 Crying fear.

In short order,
I love you.
I really do.
I might have hated you,
Talked about you.
And swore I'd never think about you.
Character assassination
Also got you through. 
Hearts serve a purpose.
So can we both honor that too?

Loc'd, weaved, straight, nappy.
Permed, colored, texturized.
Can we HONESTLY
Unleash our natural gifts
And still be beautiful?
Happy?

I'm nappy and happy.
I'm happy because I am nappy.
Becoming nappy has set ME free.
There is no hijacked image here 
Because I'm afraid to do me. 
Read: I'm not afraid to do me.

Word to the Toni Braxtons.
Who keep it
Short, cropped, weaved OR unweaved.
You too exude a certain freedom
In you HAIR beauty,
And no FEAR with your versatility.

So, whether you buy it, or keep it real.
Dye it, but still don't understand the big deal. 

Know this Sista,
Society cannot mold or shape
The REAL you.

Express freedom
And not their hate for you.

I love you like chitterlings.
Which could mean that I don't.
Your funky love won't let me in
To embrace the beautiful things
You won't.

I love you like chitterlings.
Which could mean that I don't.
It's the 5th year of another year,
But the 1st year that I divorce fear
And KNOW you are not:
Dear to my heart.
Connected to my mind.
And a soul piece to my emotions.

I love you like chitterlings.
Which could mean that I don't.

I don't like chitterlings.

     I am trying to motivate myself to write again. And I will express the same sentiments at any given time. Yep, as a poet I have my periods when I think inspiration is a microscopic thing waiting for me in a sea of grass. That's what "we" do. Please enjoy the short poems that I wrote last year and have now included in my blog.

I closed the door,
Because I already know,
What you want.
Except -
The door is in my face
And not yours.
Trust.

Disclaimer: I'm not a man basher. Certain situation make my words spill out - like spilled milk.




He Ain't

He ain't equal to my self-worth.
No matter how I flip it,
And gauge the size of my own dirt.
He ain't equal to my self-worth,
Period.

Owner of A Lonely Heart

'Cause if you were here,
I'd be promised a hug and
Infinite comfort.

But you are not here.
So, I bleed because he
Wants conditional comfort.

Hi 2012!

I hate good-bye's, but how can one hate on ushering in a new year? It's refreshing on a global level. Today, focus on remaining positive and remembering that you are blessed always. Happy New Year from brownsugatou.
