Soulbird Fly Away

Soul bird Fly Away:
The moment when the sun meets the horizon and lights the earth will mark your beginning to create a masterpiece. Yesterday is beneath your wings and your future lives amongst the clouds. Let the wind guide you to your destiny my beautiful soul bird.

Fly to heights unreached
Take the path you've seeked
Soul bird fly away fly away

If you Spread your wings, open your heart, and unlock your soul
your present can grasp what the future holds

Say What's a bird without its wings
What's a star without their dreams
Soul bird fly away soul bird fly away
What's love without the heart
What's an artist without their art
Go right away
Find away find away

Live for your passion give your soul satisfaction
Soul bird fly away fly away

If you Spread your wings, open your heart, and unlock your soul
your present can grasp what the future holds

I just want you know
Don't mean to make this personal
Do you know why the caged bird sings
Because she believes in her dreams
There was once a girl afraid to let go Demeanor was peaceful but she  battled her soul
Passionately painted her pain on to a page like Van Gogh
Aspired to inspire like Maya Angelou

Unfinished

This is a broken world and who's gonna help fix it
Is it you...
The world is lost in its own territory
People deceived by the one in the mirror
Everyone's waiting around to see a difference
But not everyone's taking action to change the system

This is for the Nigerian 234

Millions of men lost in war

The babies fighting cancer

Those who've questioned life and never got the answer

The motherless child, the fatherless sons,

the innocent victims of drugs and guns,

for the mentally ill and forgotten,

the ones who suffered from Osama bin Latten,

the brainwashed citizens of a corrupt society,

for the aids patients who are sick n dying,

the insecure hopeless women and men,

for the whole world suffering from sin
Just hold on a little while longer,

fight the battle a whole lot stronger


One day one day this world is gonna change and it'll be a better place for your sake!

College Crushes

I'm your biggest fan way out in the distance.
I'm a little hesitant, but I'm tired of the resistance.
Your thoughts oh my your thoughts (harmony) are deeper than the ocean blue.
I'm drowning in your eyes when I look at you.
I guess that makes me your Ophelia and you my Hamlet.

I'm crazy in love with your soul …Got dammit!
I did it again falling for someone who would only see me as a friend.
Well if we can't be together, let's make music together

Let's runaway forever as soon as the horizon sets

Let's passionately sing Baby your my everything and when the sun disappears, I'll trade in my glass slippers and be content that we passionately made....music.

Freshmen Hill

Freshmen Hill
Between Techwood and Bobbydodd I look up to my fate
August 19th 2013 is the exact date.
I'm full if excitement, but  kind of nervous. I ask myself "Do I really deserve this?"
I come from a pretty average town, top of my class, and involved in blah blah blah...Yeah this part of the story doesn't matter anymore here.
Let's fast forward....


I expected my college experience to be a mixture of A Different World and School Daze.Haha that only happens on Thursdays. Just BLAZE!

I expected my first semester to be a breeze.

But my test grades ranged from A's-Z's.

After all the professors I've had so far, my best has been my mistakes.

When the crowd is gone and the parties are over, you realize what's at stake.

You find yourself, lose yourself...and really a bit of both.

Change is a natural part of life that shows your growth.

Hmm, there's so much going on in my world.

Life is just beginning as a college girl.

Spokenword-God's Princess

“I truly believe that I’m a princess because my Father God is King of kings. I possess power and worth not because of material and external things. However, I prove my royalty by my loyalty with God. I surrender myself to no one and nothing because I’m protected by thy rod.

 

I’m not a princess from a fairytale that I watched as a kid. However, I’m that princess redeemed from a hell where mostly I hid… the pain, the insecurities, the shame, and the guilt. Yes, that treacherous low self-esteem that I had built.. up in my heart that made me feel like ishh doubting myself not believing I could do this…this thing called life or should I say a living trap or a place where I felt that I failed to adapt ..to the..derogative words on the radio or the hurtful actions from my so-called friends..With no one on my side, I just wished my life would end. But a voice cried out to me, “Dear child, put down that blade! Don’t you know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made? If you really truly believe that I am your Father, then you must feel and act like my daughter.” That’s when I came to a realization that I’m a part of a greater nation where quitting is illegal and that by God, I was surprisingly regal.

 

Dear sisters, we walk with pride because God says we are worthy. We adore ourselves because we adore thee. Yes, science may say that we are living organisms with double-X chromosomes and rappers may say that we are hoes, tricks, and sluts, but we should only be defined by our position in God’s eyes. If it isn’t the truth and the life, then deem them lies.

 

That is why I truly believe that I’m a princess because my Father God is King of kings. I possess power and worth not because of material and external things. However, I prove my royalty by my loyalty with God. I surrender myself to no one and nothing because I’m protected by thy rod”   ~ Danie B

Burdened Soul

My soul is like a developing unborn fetus, and I'm an undeserving mother.
I've nurtured her with big dreams, but I've abused her  with intoxicating doubt.
She patiently waits for me to reveal her to the world, but I'm too afraid to let her out.
The expecting date was never predictable due to unforeseen insecurities. I've convinced myself that she's too pure to live amongst my impurities.


My soul is like a beautiful butterfly and I'm its closed cocoon.
She feeds off creativity, but lately I haven't provided her with any.
She can hardly grow in my deserted forest. Its just unfortunate that my attention span happens to be the shortest.
I'm afraid that as soon as she spreads her wings to fly away
Her life as a butterfly, will shortly die away
I guess her metamorphosis will never be completed because I've convinced myself that I don't really need it.

My soul is like a fierce lion and I'm the cage.
She's fed leftover goals as she sits in a box. But I know she would rather chase her dreams.
When I speak, you can hear her silent roar
Begging me to finally unlock her caged door, but that will never happen
It's just I'm not ready to untame the beast because I've convinced myself that this makes me modest at least.

One day, my soul will awake and turn this darkness into light!
One day, my soul can change me, and I can finally start my life!
One day, my soul will reflect on the outside!
One day, my soul will no longer hide!
