Once again black people are first to discover and last to benefit. In 2006 a black man wrote a book called Undercover Smart. In that book he told us that the Spanish players were on the move and that by the year 2015 the Spanish players will absorb, deplete and eliminate the African Americans from the game.


The year is now 2011 (5 years later)…

EXCERPT From Crystal's Semi-Autobiography

Franklin reached out his hands, and as a moth to a flame she was drawn to him. He held her in his loving embrace, and began to sing to her.

The lilt of his voice and the pleading of his heart poured forth in every note.

Tiffany had never heard a man's voice sound so beautiful. Oh, she had been sung to before, but this time, was the first time it emanated from a place of true love. His voice soared and took her on a journey to Heaven. Like water, it flowed through her very being,… Continue

I was raised as a Catholic. I attended Catholic private schools my entire life. I also attended 2 Catholic churches growing up, and I remember the religious aspect of my upbringing well. I vividly remember going to confession on Wednesdays, studying the Catechism in Religion class, the rosary beads, practically worshiping the Virgin Mary and the Pope, sprinkling of holy water upon my head, celebrating Ash Wednesday, and eating fish without fail every Friday evening. I…

What IS LOVE? Is it a feeling or a choice? Is it an elusive, momentary sensation, or can it actually last a lifetime? Is it just a physical reaction to something or is it emotional in nature? So many questions concerning such a small word that has monumental impact on every human being's life. To have it is a blessing to the mind, soul, body and spirit. To be denied this essential ingredient of a human being's existence, is the equivalent of dying a slow and tortuous death DAILY. Like a plant,… Continue

Bound by Time

At all times I am yours,

for all time you are mines.

The potent glue that seals us;

we are bound by time.

Lost in the moments,

the seconds fly by,

But the memories that exist

are endless, if only in our minds.

Husbands chained to their wives

gladly awaiting death to depart.

Parents attached to their children,

invisible strings tug at their hearts.

But our love is not held

together by vows or by…

The Perfect Man

Ladies please don’t be jealous,

but I can’t contain my joy.

I had to tell somebody.

I fell in love with the perfect boy.

You laugh and say I’m foolish.

No man like that exists.

I tell you that you’re wrong,

you’ve never met a man like this.

He worships the ground I walk on,

and he knows me inside and out.

He tells me that I’m beautiful

at times when I look my worse.

When I cry, he cries too.

His love…
