A Season’s Cycle

My little dose of creative writing.


A Season’s Cycle


Seasons pass endlessly like there’s no time.
Life circling is continuous even when it ends.
Sun comes up and goes down, around a dime.
Wake up, work, school, children and friends.

Life circling is continuous even when it ends.
Trees’ leaves change colors green to brown.
Wake up, work, school, children and friends.
You’d think it’s over when the leaf hits the ground.

Trees’ leaves change colors green to brown.
It starts over naked like a newborn.
You’d think it’s over when the leaf hits the ground.
Just like a new life, the tree is reborn.

It starts over naked like a newborn.
A new beginning is before us.
Just like a new life, the tree is reborn.
The continuous cycle of life is all around us.

A new beginning is before us.
Sun comes up and goes down, around a dime.
The continuous cycle of life all around us.
Seasons pass endlessly like there’s no time.

HBO’s New Relatable Show: Insecure

This week I saw a video on Facebook about a new show that came out this October on HBO. It was a trailer for a show called Insecure. I couldn’t help but feel an instant connection to this show. Maybe it’s because the lead character is a black woman with natural hair and she’s a bit awkward. Or maybe it’s because she’s a black woman working in White America. Or it’s because she’s a tad bit insecure about where she is in life. Whatever the reason, I was drawn to this character and show is because it seems so relatable to me.

Creatively Writing

A friend of mine suggested that I put some of my poetry on my blog. I’ve been thinking of doing it, but I guess I needed the extra push. Continue reading Creatively Writing

One Year Older, One Year Wiser

Guess what?! Today is my birthday! I’m officially 24! I really don’t know where the time has gone. I feel like I just wrote that post about things I wanted to do before I turn 25 a few months ago. Now I only have one year to complete that list and I didn’t make much headway. If you haven’t read that post, you can see it here.

Before I turn 25, there were eight things I wanted to do: run a 5K, visit to New York, plan another international trip, get healthier, go on a road trip, have a 48 hour adventure, buy a condo, and sky dive. I’ve only done one and a half things on this list. The half comes from getting healthier because that is a constant struggle, especially my birthday weekend. Good bye diet!!

I was able to run the 5k back in April 2015. I did a 5k color run with my best friend and her cousin. That was a fun and interesting experience that I would recommend to everyone. I want to do a mud run next! But that’s a whole other topic.

Since I only have a year to 25, I might need to reconsider a few things on this list. I’ve already planned to skydive for my 25th so that’s taken care of. I’ve also decided to go to Miami for Carnival for my 25th next year so I might switch out the New York trip for Miami. It’s still a trip and I could add New York to a before 30 list. 🙂

As far as buying a condo, let’s be real, that might need to be on the before 30 list as well. I’m thinking an apartment will be just fine until I’m really financially stable enough for a condo. I don’t want to rush that and there is a lot that goes into owning one.

I haven’t gone on any road trips this year but I’m pretty sure this will happen before I’m 25. I don’t know where I’ll go or when it’ll happen but I know it will happen, even if that means spontaneously leaving in the middle of the night. The international trip will most likely happen as well. As long as I can afford it, I’ll be going to Belize for Independence Day or I’ll make a trip to Dominica to visit my best friend. She’s out there for med school right now. Shout out to you girl! I’m so proud of you!! But I’m hopeful one of the two or both will happen this following year.

I can’t believe I’m 24. I know some people are reading this thinking, “Man, I remember when I was 24. I was doing this and that…” I’ve gotten that all weekend. I know I’m not old to say but it sure does hit you hard when you realize you complain about your back pain more and more every day. I can only imagine what 25 feels like. Ha!!

Happy birthday to me!!

Let it Grow!

I’m no hair guru but I’m also not new to the “natural hair” movement. I’ve been natural all my life. I have 4b/4c…mostly 4c hair and it does NOT like to be messed with. My hair has more attitude than me when I’m hungry, sitting in LA traffic in 100 degree weather. Continue reading Let it Grow!

New Seasons!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post. Too long. Embarrassingly long! The sad part is, everyday I wake up thinking about writing and I don’t. I must admit, I’ve been in a funk. 2016 hit me hard but I’m starting to realize that I’m the one making it worse by dwelling on things. It gets hard when you’re stuck. You tend to lose motivation and sight. But I refuse to let 2016 stop me. It’s been a tough year but it’s not too late to turn it around. We still have three more months.

With that being said…remember the 52 week challenge I wanted to participate in? Yea, the  one I completely failed at doing? Well wishful thinking right? Lol! Well like I said, we still have October, November, and December of 2016! So let’s do it! I’ll pick up where I left off and maybe do some of my favorites that I’ve missed along the way.

New Season

Cheers to a new season! Cheers to new beginnings!
