When I was a child I loved writing short stories because it felt like I was transporting my mind to another world.  And when I was a teenager I got involved in the Hip Hop Scene and I began writing verses and rhymes just for fun.  Then I stopped writing, and I tried doing all the things that I thought would bring me happiness like work, family, and so on.  But my creative energy always kept rising up inside me.  So, I tried doing Arts and craft, and small projects to keep my mind busy.  But I it didn’t have a true passion for any of those things.  Later in 2013 I got divorced, and eventually I started dating which is a whole other story, but let’s just say I learned a lot.   By 2015 I quit my job which I absolutely hated and I began feeling lost and unsure.  Until one day I started to write again as I did many years ago.   And I began to write every day.  I started out writing simple short poems and then they grew in length and then I began to write about my perception of life.  So, I decided to start a page on Facebook, and my page grew to over 11,000 likes.  I could not believe that this was because of me and my words.  But I continued writing until one day I decided to perform Spoken Word, which turned out to be one of the most profound experiences of my life. Now I have several platforms on social media and a Youtube Channel.  And today I am ready to speak about my journey and write about it because I am ready to manifest my dreams.  So, today I’m telling my story to whoever reads this because I feel like if I write it, then it becomes an affirmation.  And like the Beloved Luther Vandross used to sang it “A chair is still a chair even if no one’s sitting there”.  So, I may just be a chair but here I am.  Thanks for reading😊
