Don’t Be Afraid

Don’t be afraid of nobody

they do what they do

and you do what you do

that way there can’t

be no reference

you can’t refer either

to the other

Always choose to

do you

as long as you can

It don’t matter

Just enjoy yourself

I don’t know about anybody else

But I know

I know what I think

Me and God are alright

Don’t nobody know me

like him

No one else has really

seen me


Each day I just

Just choose to ascend

Just a little bit higher

Each and Every day

I don’t want to be

Be bogged down

down with negative conversation

unproductive words

product of

uncaring spirits

Spirits that want to

be distracted

Distracted by

“Any” thing

I don’t want to do that

I hate it when

when someone tries

to do that

Ugh! that just hurts me

I smile and don’t say nothing

And then I think


I don’t want to start

start conversations

about people who

aren’t in the room

Like we not expecting

Expecting them

To walk in

And be

be able to keep talking

That’s so disappointing

let’s not do that

It’s not like

you nor I

aren’t able to

talk about

something else

It’s almost like

some people

they do it

just to see

see if you gonna

say something

You know that

when you open your mouth

they’re going to

run and talk

So you know that keeping

your conversation

only about

you and them



the only two people

that heard



That is exactly what you should do

Do What Makes You Happy

KaismThere has to come a time in your life where you just do what makes you happy. Surely, you can get to do that. I finally have decided that I’m going to do just that.

Not trying to hurt anyone else but I just want to do what I want without condemnation or guilt. And I won’t. I won’t look for or seek those feelings out.

There has to come a time in your life where you don’t care what anyone else has to say. You don’t hurt nobody and you don’t want nobody hurting you; so you do what you want to do, because time, is short.

Sometimes we fool ourselves to say that we ain’t supposed to do what we want. We not supposed to be happy. Everybody else is but not us. I won’t play martyr. I don’t know how much time I’ve got left. I’m going to do what I want to do and not feel guilty about it. Not no more.

I feel free to love me and do some things that will allow me to be my most authentic self. That’s what I want in-spite of anything. Whatever anything is.

I don’t want to even hear what others think. If I choose to wear white pants in the middle of winter I’m going to do it because you’re not guaranteed to be here next summer. I’m going to wear what I want, when I want. I don’t want to hear anybody say nothing negative. I’m not looking for it. I don’t care to hear it, because I don’t care about it. I just want to live.

I just want to live and be happy. I want to write, feel free to love me, to find me, so that if and when I can be my best me, for you.

If you want to come along that would be even better; but if not, that’s up to you….I’ll see you!
