If I knew then what I know now, 
I'd take five steps back and just slow the fuck down 
I would've listened to Mami when she'd say "don't rush to get old" Cuz now I'm like "damn ma I should've listened" and she's like "yea mija, told you so"
 my feet hurt from all this running 
Tryna keep up with the thing we call life an on going battle & this here's my never ending strife. I've been shattered, broken up into a thousand pieces
Conflicted, restricted, internally bleeding & some of my worst wounds were surprisingly self-made self inflicted, maybe I just wanna feel pain... I think I just might be going fuckin insane cuz while many have hurt me, its myself that blame... "Well gosh what a shame" that's what many would say... But ashamed I am not! Never have been, never will be. The broken up, broken down, Puerto Rican thickness has hit hard on that ground but she's picked herself up and although it's been rough my heads still held high, "up up to the sky" and who I am is what you see and what you see is what you get and I ain't got shit together to perfection but you probably don't either and yes, my tears flow lightly but that don't make me no weaker... Than those who choose to hide behind their pride cuz their afraid to express that their lives are really a hot fuckin mess... So please spare the pep talks, the do's and the dont's I'm struggling like everyone else but I'm doing better than most... So here's to "life" and this new era of normalized insanity of Hollywood hustlers & glorified vanity. Here's to the strip club runners no longer nine to fivers, the new millennium strivers, them up all nighters... Poppin bottles pourin liquor in the "baddest bitches mouths"  u know the ones wit the  fatties and it's ok if they don't jiggle long as you can drop it like its hot and make a twirk just a little and I'm not tryna throw shade nah I tip my hat to those who get in where they fit but I'm not tryna fit in I'm just tryna be me.

I don't want a love that's silent, no not me! 
Don't want the kind of love that cannot sing; the kind that has no sense of humor whose laughter doesn't fill the air. 
I want a strong love but not a love that's militant and stern; I want playful & free;
Good love that stares deeply and kisses often.
I want a love that pays attention and appreciates;
I want one that forgives quickly and hugs twice longer.
The kind of love that screams 
"that's my best friend", "my favorite person " and "My Love"

I woke up this morning with a feeling of determination and a recognition of my persistence... 
I woke up feeling confident although never overly confident to keep me from bowing my head in prayer... And that was all I needed... That connection that left me feeling like whether or not it's today or tomorrow... Regardless, when he says it's time...

It's usually the ones you love most that hurt you into numbness... They will never acknowledge your pain but they'll be first to notice your indifference.

Don't ever ask someone not to "waste your time"... It's on you not to let them.

What made her different was that once she committed, she was loyal.

And there's this picture of you that I snapped one day...
In the mist of your playful laughter I captured a beautiful moment... 
Your eyes gazing directly at me 
piercing their way through the lense
Your smile almost childlike & hand to your chest, resting on your heart... 
Sometimes when I miss you, I stare at it as if to satisfy the appetite of my soul... Until it gets hungry again...
