I’ve been in my share of relationships and there were times when I knew that the person with whom I had dealings with wasn’t the right person for me. When I came to that realization, I made it a priority to shake myself loose of that person. It saddens me to see people carry on […]

When I think of perfection You’re the first thing I see Because ever since I could recall That’s what you’ve been to me Instrumental in my growth Even though I’m a bit older Anytime I need to I could lean on your shoulder You’re the light shining brightly On the darkest of days And a […]

The reason I decided to blog this is because for the last 5-6 years or so, I have noticed a pattern when it comes to numbers with me. I used to think that coincidence was the reason behind why I seemed to always look at the clock at 3:33 and 12:34. Today, I was searching […]

Subject: Change Time: 10 minutes Change is overwhelming me at this juncture in time. I don’t know where to turn don’t know where to go don’t know the beginning from the end. But I do know right from wrong. But I’m not sure if the right choice is ahead of me or even in the […]

Indecision Same like the riddle of which came first or what happens at the crossroads and if it involves the selling of souls, What happens when the city of dreams bright lights and apple flavor becomes a modern day Attica? When the spotlights that line Ol’ Broadway are searchlights illuminating prison numbers like train lines […]


A Man…

Should accept responsibility for his actions-Should set the example for those around him being a positive influence-Should never raise his hands to hurt a woman-Should cry when he feels the need to and know that crying doesn’t make you weak-Should do whatever he can to provide for himself and his family-Should never allow ego to […]

BY RAMONA SHELBURNE For 15-year-old Kristian Keith and her mother, it’s all about pride.

While a Bronx blaze took the lives of nine people, eight of which were children, Mayor Bloomberg found himself in the warm climate of Miami. Did this sit well with New Yorkers who find it hard to believe that its own Mayor wouldn’t be on site lending his support, grief, and sympathy for the lives […]
