My School’s Contest

I am super excited!!! My college is holding a contest and I entered into it. We had to make a video explaining our why. Why did we decide to return back to college? I want to make a difference in the community. I am very concerned about broken homes. I am hoping that I win if not it is still okay because I got a chance to use my voice.

It’s Up To Us

I’m not pointing fingers

But we must admit

That the black community is damaged

No one wants to talk about it

No one wants to face

What is happening

No one wants to get serious

About their life choices

The ones that actually has

Major consequences

That unfortunately once done

We can’t change or fix

People want to program their minds

To see their lives

As a happily ever after

A fairy tale

But no one wants to discuss

How certain choices can bring

Us back to reality have us

Sounding like a nursery rhyme

Old woman in the shoe

Had so many children

That she didn’t know what to do

Messing with the wrong men

Will have your life like a soap opera

All my children

And you are Not Erica

Having multiple babies out of wedlock

Losing value on the dating market

As if the arrow is pointing downward

On Down Jones

Ladies don’t waste unnecessary time

Ask the man who you feel

Maybe your potential mate

What are his goals and dreams

If he wants to get married

He will tell you

Don’t let having multiple children

And him not marrying  you

To be a life lesson

It won’t be only you who will suffer

The children will too

Don’t be a fool

Don’t continue to hold on

Respect his decision

Move on life is short

Even though every single black mother’s

Situations are unique

Even though all single black mothers

Are not irresponsible

It doesn’t matter to

The people of the world

It’s time to wake up

Poverty, despair, and hopelessness

Are parts of nightmares

And should not be identified as

Being apart of African American culture

We have got to do better

We have to not feed into the negative

Stereotypes and generalizations

That some of us choose to embrace

It’s a big mistake

It’s up to us what we choose

What we answer to or who we allow

Ourselves to get attached to

Allowing negativity to turn inward

Single black mothers are not used goods

Not all of us are from the hood

Not all of us are ghetto

Those are words of the devil

We know that he is the biggest liar

Of them all

One of the greatest titles

That a woman can possess

Is being called mother

The greatest words that a parent

Can hear is their children

Tell them that they love you

We want our children to have

A better life than what we had

That requires having a stable home

Which consist of a mom and a dad

A happy homes goes beyond a fad

It never goes out of style

We don’t want to be responsible

For our children walking around

With a hole in their hearts

Remember they are suppose

To experience love first

From ma and pops

It’s time to break the curse

It’s time to stop making excuses

Because they are useless

The Black community

Needs to get it together

The broken home situation

Is very urgent

Getting an Education

Education is one of the few things that a person can earn that can not be taken away. Why stop at a high school diploma? Whether we choose to believe it or not getting an education is valuable. Doctors needs education, Lawyers need education, Dentist need education, Engineers need education etc it doesn’t hurt to have it. One of the proudest moments of my life was receiving my associates degree I am working on the rest of my bachelor’s degree. I may stop at my Master’s degree God willing of course. Going to college may not be for everyone but don’t knock the people who choose to add more education to their life resume. I don’t care which road that you choose everyone will encounter getting more training on the job in order to keep their job or to receive an promotion that’s more knowledge education is knowledge. Everyone’s life roads begin in different directions God has something special planned for all of our lives.  The more we know the more we grow.

Black Men What’s Up With You?

I have joined a movement to unfollow, unsubscribe and ignore all negative posts about black women. What is going on in the black community is an issue and if you have a problem with me writing about it then don’t read what I write.

There are some good black men and there are some bad ones. Believe it or not the bad ones aren’t always the ones who make memes and videos. Some of the bad ones don’t believe in black women they down their intelligence, their talents any gifts anything that is negative is part of the problem in the black community. The way that some black men treat black women affects the community. While some claim that the the negative ones are a minority their negativity is what’s heard majority of the time. The disrespect has caused an domino effect it’s time to end it.

The black community it my community too. We have to do better.Who is to blame for what’s going on in the black community? I see a lot of finger pointing and no one owning up to their mistakes. Some of the black men blame the black women for how they treat them. The disrespect is poison that here the community in every way. There are so many broken homes that it’s disturbing. Lots of mothers who aren’t wives and no it’s not right. Lots of father who aren’t in their children’s lives and the sad things they think that it’s alright. Everything starts at home that’s where dysfunction begin children who grow up into messed up adults we have to break the chain. Someone has to care. This movement will be successful.
