What I Won’t Do

I don’t need anyone to complete me I’m already whole

I’ve been figured out I’m enough, since I’ve been surviving and thriving in a world so tough

although I may not need you financially

I want you mentally, physically and emotionally

I refuse to dumb myself down just to feed your ego or support your waning masculinity

I can be a source of strength and help mate if you let me be

But first you have to see me as more than just a wet and warm good time

How about you stop ogling my breast and concentrate on my mind

Keep your sweet nothings, I feed off honesty

Please tell me no lies

You say you want someone more needy and softer

Yet you walked all over the last one like that and her self-esteem it cost her

We need to get back that complete and deep love of self

so we’ll be able to recognize and expect that same type of effort from someone else

Let’s get back to respecting and praying for one another

Instead of playing and preying with the hearts of one another

We need one another to survive

But we have to make sure we can offer more than what’s in our pockets or in between our thighs

because time is short and my patience is too

So playing myself by accepting less is something I just won’t do.

More Powerful than you Know

Sometimes it’s hard to inspire when you feel as if you’re floundering at life and your pockets are not filling fast enough.

But then again, those moments of uncertainty that turn out alright are what leads to inspiring moments and testimonies.

It’s easy to give up. To say, well it must not be my time since dreams aren’t aligning with finances.

Finances, or shall I say, the lack thereof, is a major stressor. Businesses and marriages have come to destruction over it.

But we can’t lose sight that sometimes riches aren’t monetary and sometimes blessings can’t be measured. 

Peace of mind and joy of heart are priceless. Doing something that fulfills you is invaluable to your self-worth, and shouldn’t be quantified on the basis of a dollar. 

That budget is meant to discipline you not confine or define your limits.

Sometimes you have to acknowledge that what you want is surpassing what you need.

We have to place things in perspective and understand that sometimes the only thing standing in your way of pursuing your dreams is being greedy for gain and forgetting to be thankful for more than enough.

Sometimes we have to be reminded that your dreams may be the life saving force someone else has been waiting for.

That book, that business, that apparel line may be the boost someone needs to be reminded that they too can realize their dreams.

That it’s never too late to pursue your purpose.

Don’t give up, you’re richer than you realize and more powerful than you know!

Loyal to You

Far too often we hold on to people that we truly should let go. People that undervalue and devalue our worth, yet habit keeps you holding on.

Sometimes we hold on due to the illusion of comfort and convenience or the thought that change may soon come. We need to be as loyal to ourselves and self-worth as we are to others.

Longevity doesn’t always equal loyalty, because some people close to you aren’t there for your benefit, but for their own.

Make sure you know the difference between those that value you and those that see the value of being associated with you, those are two different and separate things entirely. Sometimes it’s hard to determine who isn’t for you because they are dressed up to look like family and friends.

People that truly love you, nourish and feed your soul and uplift your spirit. They are careful not to take too much without making sure they have something to deposit in return. They look after and care for you like they would themselves. That’s why it’s important that the people you choose to love, have shown that they know how to show love to themselves. It’s impossible to give to others what you cannot even give to yourself. Remember you get what you accept.

Likewise, you can’t expect for someone to nourish your soul if theirs is deficient. Everyone is responsible for their own happiness, A person can add to it, but they should not be in control of it. That’s an inside job, don’t allow those on the outside to have more power than you, over you.

Understand the beauty and strength in recognizing and ending relationships and patterns of behavior that mean you no good. Don’t allow anyone to guilt you into staying in a toxic environment.

Sometimes the only way you can grow is to let go of everything and everyone that weighs you down. Be loyal to loving yourself, it’s the longest relationship you’ll ever have.
