What You Need to Know About Me:
Currently, work for non-profit organization in New York City.
I love writing short stories and poems but I would love to one day get to the point where I could complete a novel.

What do you do (A poem by me)

What do you do
When they turn on you
One day he’s kind
Next day he’s hard to find
Am I losing my mind
All of it’s hard to understand
It's always hard to understand the complexities of a man
He’s hot and cold
He’s timid then bold
Don’t know when to walk or when to run
Don’t know when’s he’s serious or having fun
What do you do
When they turn on you
Pushing my patience making me stressed
Thinking about doing what I do best
Walking away and ignoring the pain in my chest
In a moment nothing was the same
The only thing I recognize is his name
I don’t know what I did or said
Can’t tell if made this bed
What do you do
When they turn on you
My mind and pride tell me to quit
But my heart and emotions say live with it
I want to get angry and stay mad
I wanna cry tears and be sad
So, I don’t know what to do
When they turn on you
Say a prayer or two
Figure out what’s what and who’s who
Then do what you gotta do

Don't get upset!

He's just being a jerk!

Sit back


Say a prayer

It works!

He should consider your feelings
Before he steals your joy

Each day you try in the relationship
Giving it more and more

Somethings are meant to be broken
But not your heart!
It's hard
Move on
Give it to God!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
