A while back, I took some much needed time away from the stage and from social media. When I finally decided to log back on, a fellow artist, Trina Michelle commented on my post and asked where I'd been. That got me to thinking...reflecting...and eventually writing.....



I been keeping quiet
I been doing shit in private
I been chilling on my island
I been keeping down my mileage
I ain't fucking with nobody
I'm just beaming like I'm Scotty
I'm an on-time goddess for my Peoples
like I'm Dottie
I ain't got nothing to prove
I'm just staying in my groove
Rocking rap and soul legends
in the home of the blues
Keep it poppin with my pen
for the love, not the views
You can take it or leave it baby
That ain't my choice to choose
Cause I be focused on my own
I be working from my home
In the garden like a gnome
I be reaping what I sewn
By myself, but not alone
Navigating the unknown
Give my all each and every time
I rock a microphone
Cause I know who I AM
It needs no validation
Yeah, I got my mind on track
and now I'm pulling out the station
with a clear train of thought
Affirmation in rotation
I choose courage over fear
Wrote this as a souvenir for
every single year
I spent struggling and striving
Now I'm finally arriving
Self-love got me thriving
I be deep diving into the waves of my mind
Water flowing up my spine
With a fire serpentine
Bold, italic, underline
each and every single rhyme
I treat rap with respect
cause the Word is divine
Going hard just in case this is my last lifetime
Baby I was born a star
and so I might as well shine
