‘Tis The Season

By at 25 December, 2008, 12:00 am

A celebrator of Christmas, I am not. After a conversation with some folk at the job I told them about the only Christmas I remember. Under the tree sat three gold wrapped boxes and a couple of red wrapped boxes.  My cousin crept out of his room and started ruffling through all the presents under […]

A Man…

By at 3 November, 2007, 10:00 am

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 […]

Standing Still:Still Standing

By at 4 October, 2007, 6:18 pm

For the past couple of months, I’ve been somewhat at a standstill. Many things were consuming my mind and taking a major toll on me. I was so out of the loop and I didn’t feel like myself. No ambition, no determination, no will and drive to work, eat or do the things I’ve grown […]

Love: Is It Hard To Come By?

By at 6 August, 2007, 1:30 pm

I believe that love is instilled within our hearts from the second we are conceived into our mother’s womb. Depending on how well our mother’s take care of themselves during the pregnancy will reflect on how we come out into the world. Naturally, as a baby we will be showered with love from family members […]

It Was All Your Fault

By at 19 April, 2007, 9:25 pm

“You decided to spill my blood” are the words that echo in my head. Since when is it my fault that you want to shoot me dead? At what point is it my fault that you are so hurt inside of your heart and head that you have to kill other people? Sure, people didn’t […]

Mayor Bloomberg Pays Parents To Care for Their Kids

By at 30 March, 2007, 2:15 pm

It isn’t enough to have children and want to see them make a difference in the world, keep your family name going or push them to do better than you’ve done in life, out of love of self and love for your child. No, it isn’t that simple anymore (was it ever?). Mayor Bloomberg has […]
