A part of our being, a part of our soul,
has taken his place in the Heavens, where his wings will unfold.
His earthly troubles, burdens, pains and fears,
were left at the Pearly Gates, as we heard the news of his passing,
memories of his incredible talent brought on the tears.
He was embraced, given his robe and adorned with a Golden Crown.
The angels gave him a glorious welcome, cheering as he performed; singing, rejoicing and yes, moon-walking… Continue

With all of the other novels I'm currently working on and the one's soon to be released, I'm thrilled to see that Better Late Than Never is still a number one Best-seller and is still getting rave reviews! It is definitely a motivator to keep writing!

To be in paradise
A place where every woman knows of their worth and walks around with their heads held high
A place where we can overcome all the wicked thoughts that comes to our minds.
A place where all mothers and fathers come together and raise our youth to be strong, educated and to stand up for what they believe in.
A place called paradise; A heaven right here on earth.
The sky is clear
Everyone is free

Hate is the idiot’s potion which allows him to hold fast to his ignorance
It is simple for the simple to say “I hate,” because hate costs them nothing
To know someone costs bits of yourself
And to love someone may cost everything
I once heard a white man say—I hate all blacks
A black man—I hate all whites
A woman—I hate all men
A man—I hate all women

The lifeline of a man begins in a seed
A fragment of his generations with specific needs
The need to become, struggle and strive to materialize
The need to be groomed and educated by his father and forefathers
For all to realize,
The lifeline, the seed of a man upon his birth
Has a reason for living on this earth
The lifeline, the responsibility to his past, present, and future
Is to take his place as the granfather, father, as the… Continue

Let me sit here
5 more minutes, let me sit here and look
I remember the coffin’s weight
I almost dropped it
It contained my mother’s body
I’d never drop it
Let me sit here in the still
My mother loved the winter here,
4am… 5, 6
3 more minutes
I love to watch the flurries flutter
Slowly, softly flutter, fall
White silence; Black morning
My mother’s pain; black as… Continue

Such a glorious thing; light
The recrudescent splendor that makes all the world passable
It is all that glows, all that glistens, all that shines
It is light and isn’t it glorious
Without the light, we could not see to see
Without the light where would we stand in the scape of the earth
Such a marvelous, sparkling, dazzling, miraculous thing
It is light and it is glorious

If I had peeped at my tomorrows, the yesterday’s of my today….
I would have cherished each awakened morning, knowing God was my lead every step of the way.
If I had peeped at my tomorrows the yesterday’s of my today…….
My days would have had no reminders of what I should have said or done…..
The complexity and challenges of each moment would have been lessons to be learned,
Today I would be well prepared, awaiting each new challenge as it comes.
If I… Continue

Over the last little while, I have had some insights into myself. I think back to when I was in high school and how terrible I have always been with women. It seemed like I was always alone; like everyone I know had a girlfriend and none of the girls I liked even knew I was there. More times than none I would say that I was the odd numbered human being; like the planet earth was populated by 6,000,000,001 people and I was that 1.
Every girl I liked seemed to be taken so I looked down on… Continue

Crawl on until you
Walk strong before you
Run fast enough to
Fall flat before you
Rise up and look to
Think of how strong you are

My first novel “Family…Secrets, Lies and Alibis”, sets the stage for the sequel “A Different Kind of Love”. The characters, though fictional, can be anyone who is unaware of their family lineage. One may be able to cover the secrets, lies, and excuses for siblings not knowing each other, but what happens if they meet and unaware of their family… Continue

Could remember as a child that I had learned a lot. At the age of 10. I was driving my daddy car around like I was a pro. I can see it now my daddy passed out drunk in the back seat in his long blue Caprice Classic. While I'm driving with my three sibling in the front seat. I was so scared, it was raining the windshield wipers was half working. I had to stay clam. Must say that my daddy put a lot of faith in me to drive us home.

Walking into Jades grocery store. I witness a elderly lady hitting a paralyze young man on the head. She hit him pretty hard. The young man couldn’t do anything for himself. He look to be artistic. Thinking to myself, how could a person do that. I was taking it that it was his mother. Especially been hit like that. It took everything out of me not to go hit her. Of course I headed to the direction of seeing what was going on. I had to clutch my purse tight so when I approach them I would lose… Continue

I once heard an interesting axiom which says, “Though no man is an island, all the world is an ocean.” Now whether this is the actual axiom or a derivation thereof, I’m not sure. But that takes nothing from the point that this statement makes in either case.
Have you ever tried to stand alone? To stand as a single, solitary thing in the midst of the grand scheme with no one and nothing to support you. To stand under your own frail strength and your own finite ability saying in pride, ‘I… Continue
