I'm not the girl you used to know.

A Letter To Those Who Think They Know Me...

My name comes out your mouth more than your plans... that's a problem.


Number one, you don't. It doesn't matter how many years you've known my name or existence because every day I'm evolving and turning into who I truly am. How can you know me when me and I just met? Just learned the things we love and dislike and how we been holding back. How can you hold against me things from years past? When honestly, I forgot them and if you don't, you need to grow and find yourself some business.

Dear person who knows me well enough to speak on me, don't. My name shouldn't escape your lips unless you yourself is spotless. Yes, I got a record, and indeed I have a past, but it's something we all have moved past.

Dear old lovers who think I care about your new life, guess what I don't. Stop lying to your new boo telling her I still want you. Have some class and stop watching my ass. I'm looking to love someone who means so much more than I did to you, and if you regret it, hell me too. I am focused on me and healing my heart, but my future, baby you will not be apart.

Dear friends who walked away when life had me down when things look up, don't come back around. I've made my mistakes and remember you have too, so no need for fake apologies when I ignore you as you do.

So, I write this letter because I am on a new path, life has given me struggles yet I still standing and making moves. People doubted me, I even doubted myself at times, but I am here. So those who thought they knew me, you don't, so keep in your lane, and I will keep making my own.

For those who thought they know me and still talk about me from ten years, four years, even two years ago. Don't. I am no longer any of those women, and furthermore, if you are still the same person after all those years, perhaps you should spend time talking about and thinking about yourself.

Dear person who thinks they still know me after all these years, you do not know me, so stop speaking on me. I am growing, evolving and elevating, while you are sitting still talking about who I used to be. So, who really has a problem here?

Signed, Someone new!

A Poem: My Mother

In honor of Mother's Day, that was on the 12th, here is a poem dedicated to my mother.


To the only person who can be my mentor, friend, and leader at the same time

To someone who would make me read my own books before bedtime

And puts everything down to make sure there is a smile on my face

To the person that I find impossible to ever replace.

Somehow you are always right even when it seems wrong

And when the worst does happen, how do you still manage to stay so strong?

I'm not only impressed but inspired by you

Knowing that somehow you'll always know me better than I do.

When I'm frustrated and annoy you, you simply try to understand me

Because you have always told me that even when you can't understand, plain acceptance is the key

You have listened to all my laughs, heard me cry, and felt my emotions like they were your own

You are the only reason I am joyous and the security I need to know that I am never alone.

To the only person who has truly taught me how to live

And watched me grow and make mistakes yet still knows how to forgive

Because that's who she is, certainly not like any other

There are many women but none like my own mother.

Happy Mother's Day!
