Once I’m Gone

Just a little something I wrote, but never let the world see…

I tried so hard to be perfect for you,
Changed my ways, changed my look, even sacrificed for you,
I thought changing me would make you see that this was all real to me,
But in time, I found that nothing I would do could change you.

No matter how many nights I spent with tears soaking my pillow; our backs turned while I asked God why is this happening to me,
Why is what I thought was going to be the best thing that ever happened to me, turning out to be my worst nightmare.
I begged to know why I still wasn’t enough for you to find worth in.

I believed there was something wrong with me, in an effort to justify your thought process,
Put myself down, in order to build you up
All in the end to find out that no matter what I did, you would never change for me

Maybe you’ll care for me once I’m gone.
No matter what capacity that may be.
Maybe the emotional turmoil I felt when trying to simply love you will all make sense, once there is no one begging for your attention.

 

**Never give your all to someone who doesn’t appreciate it.  Work hard for someone who is willing to put forth the same effort as you, and you will then find the true meaning of love.

Proud Accomplishments!

On 10/14, I announced that I finally am starting up my own publishing company, Writing in Color Publishing, LLC.  After careful consideration and back and forth about taking the leap of faith into the unknown, I finally did it and I was extremely happy about it.

I just wanted to take the moment to relish in this accomplishment, because this has been something that I have been considering since I published my first novel in 2016.  I had done reading about publishing under a specific name for a while, and thinking to myself, “what if I did start off a indie publisher, and one day expanded as a publishing company?”, so that is what I plan on doing.  I am definitely stil in some of my beginning stages and still developing and learning new and innovative ways to help myself and others become the best and brightest published writers of colors on the market, but I am proud to say that I have something to call my own and  cultivate into something that I can hope to see become something very impactful for the African American community one day.

If nothing else happens for me in 2017, I can say that this was one of the greatest things to happen to me this  year; and it is something that I am very proud to call my own :).

Count your Blessings and Find the Balance.

Do you tend to forget to stop and smell the roses?  Or do you get so bogged down with the unhappy parts of life that you forget to counter-attack that negativity with things you love.

I find myself forgetting to do this often, and I am not afraid to admit it.  I am human, and I have flaws; one of them is falling into the “Negative Nancy” trap at times.  I know sometimes I just want to have a bad day.  I want to wallow in my misery and be upset about where I am in my life and dream about what I want and be mad about why I can’t have it right now.  Everybody does it sometimes, and if you don’t, I need your secret!  But, on other days, I try to remember to make an effort to count every blessing.
