The Grocery Store Experience

Saw a woman in the grocery store that had me teared up. She was speaking as if she was at home and I was her daughter. She looked at me and she promised me that she was gonna get us a place of our own soon. (Mind you, getting my own home is ALL I crave in my life right now, so it felt like she was speaking to my situation).

Then she said, "you betta not hit my mama". Some shit I would say....

Then as I bagged my last grocery, she looked at me and said, " thank you for doing this for me."

Like maybe she knew I wasn't her daughter but was glad I didn't confirm it for her.

In fact the whole experience reminded me of my own mother.

So as I was leaving I told her she was blessed. Odd, because I usually say God bless to people.

I was gonna offer her the change left from my purchase, but didn't want to assume she was in need of money because she had a coffee and stuff.

I go out to my car, load it, and pull off but something made me hit the brakes and dig in my pocket.

I looked around, saw the woman headed straight toward me and gave her the $17 I had left.

I can't afford it, because I am on a budget. But my heart moved me anyway.

Damn I'm still crying....

The Good Panties

I finally came up on a pair of good

Panties

Protecting my privates like a wrapper to

Candy

Protector of mine

Provider of comfortable coverage

My size

They didn’t come cheap that’s for

Sure

But then again, what good thing ever

Does?

I’ve had some dirty drawz

Y’all

Some were holier than thou

While others were just well endowed

I reserved some, just for Aunt Flow

You know…

That mean thing that comes around

Once a month

Bullying the hell out of a woman’s insides…

But don’t none of them

Grannies

Compare to my brand new

Panties

Aged out of rotation like

Desecration

Those old dogs got trashed

Fast

Like a good pair of comfy

Shoes

Only my new good panties will

Do!

Panties = A Southern term for “boyfriend”, “man”, “old man”

This poem was inspired by a Facebook friend of mine - D.W of Louisiana

Mothman or Black Angel?

On January 3rd, I came across this image on Facebook. There were 3 photos captured in total, and they were all taken in Phoenix Arizona, uploaded to Facebook at 7:11pm. The original post and any shared posts of this image have since been deleted or removed by Facebook staff.

The Story Behind the Images:

According to the Original Poster who was awaiting the arrival of a female friend that lived within walking distance of his home; on her way to him, she believed that she was being followed by a man. She thought the man was going to rob her. The commotion was enough to alert her neighbor who came outside asking the female if she was ok. It was at that moment that things changed.

The man whom she believed was going to rob her, fled the moment the neighbor intervened. As he fled, the original poster stated that the images above manifested as if out of thin air. He said the images stayed in this formation for a few minutes and then turned into a big cloud of black smoke before it vanished.

Many Facebook posters doubted the validity of this story claiming the image to be that of a palm tree. Some folks even said it could be the image of 2 palm trees close together. Some claim the image to be a demon and others called it a “Black Angel”.

What I think

In my opinion, that ain’t no tree. I have good sense and a set of working eyes that tells me this image is that of an abnormally large thing with wings. I can see with my good eyes, two clearly defined legs. I can see a head, an arm, and what looks to be either a pair of white shorts, or something white being held in its hand.

If you follow my blog page or any of the writing social media sites that I follow, then you know that I see things through different eyes. You will also know that I am a spiritual being who speaks and writes through a spiritual peripheral.

The moment I came across the original Facebook post, I was speechless for 2 reasons. The first, my eyes saw something that didn’t appear normal. The second reason is, the image reminded me of a dream that I had 2 weeks prior.

In the dream a woman who had fallen from worldly grace, had rose into a mighty spirit that created mighty spirits. This woman was camouflaged within the trees. The only way to tell that she was a woman and not a tree, was to pay close attention to the imagery. She wore white underwear, she had breasts, she had wild short hair and she was very angry.

Back to the Original Story

After doing some research I came across the story behind the post via a comment that the original poster left in the comments section. Many people were calling this man out to get some understanding as to what they were seeing. Was this a video game hoax? Was it a cartoon character that was manipulated? Was is in fact, 2 palm trees? Nope, it was nothing of the sort.

This leaves me to question what we as a society truly know and understand about the spirit world; it’s inner and outer workings; it’s manifestation.

I know for a fact that there is an entity or spirit amongst us that shows up as a sign of what’s to come. It was first sighted in Virginia in the 1960’s and has since been called “Mothman”. For instance, in December 1967, 46 people were reported dead after the Silver Bridge collapse. Many people claimed to have seen the Mothman on that same bridge prior to the collapse.

In Conclusion

At the end of the day, I have no clue what sign or omen that this winged image came to deliver. I don’t know if this is the “Mothman” that people have seen prior to natural disaster and tragedy. What I do know is, there’s more to this world than what meets the eye. What we as a people can do is make an effort to be more aware of the things that take place around us. They could be trying to tell us something.

You be the judge. When you look at the images above, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Start there.

The 9

A feminine introvert, I love my “me time”. Probably just as much as I enjoy living to write and tell my story. I have always been called an old soul; seen as a person wise beyond her years. My ultimate goal in life is to serve humanity. I desire better living on an equitable level, for all inhabitants of the universe.

I am an “earth” being; born an earth sign. By sheer will, fate and destiny; I was born in month 9. Born with an uncanny awareness that I AM supposed to be here. I was not always aware of my purpose; though life experiences, life circumstances and situations led me to know what I know.

My life lesson was forgiveness.

I live by universal codes of morals and laws of balance, doing my best to live life aligned with the universal laws of nature. I never truly understood my love of nature until I learned to get over my fear of natural things; like nature. Though I still struggle with the idea of insects, rodents and birds; I respect their existence.

I have a deep and empathetic spiritual connection to the underprivileged; the used; the abused. While at the same time; I am bonded to creative artistic expressions as well.

I 100% respect the universal law of love and service, and I hope that this reflection will become a catchy “in thing” that never goes out of style.

I am a dreamer as well as a doer. I always have been and I always will be. It’s how I’m able to stay UP, in a society designed to keep my kind down. This works for me.

I choose to heal and educate via written and verbal expression; to the benefit of the universe. I aspire to inspire via out of the box solutions of creativity.

My life lessons taught me how to be responsible for my own actions on all levels.

Most important in my personal life is trustworthy companions and friends; love and loyalty unlimited.

I AM # 9 –And I choose to make the best of my time!

~Peace~

A Great Friend – Reciprocated

We’ve all experienced a friend turned foe. Some of us have been foes to people who thought we were their friend – Keep it 100! But have you been a great friend to your great friend?

You know, the friend who doesn’t mind being a work reference, no matter how many jobs you’ve applied for. Or that great friend who always says yes whenever you ask for a favor; like borrowing a couple of dollars until payday, or babysitting your kids when everyone else that you thought would say yes, said no. Don’t forget that great friend who always has time to listen to you vent about this situation, or that TMI thing that you just had to tell someone else.

Those kinds of friends are 1 in a million; they’re irreplaceable. If YOU have a great friend, be good to them. Because just like you need that solid, loyal friendship in your great friend; your great friends need great friends that are equally solid and loyal.

“To be a great friend; is to make the choice.”

Great friends are great friends because it’s in their character to be that way. It’s a choice they make every single day that they open their eyes and step out into society. That alone deserves reciprocation at minimum.

A simple ‘Thank You’ goes a long way. This is a great start at beginning the journey of being a great friend. You’d be surprised how many people don’t say ‘thank you’ after a kind gesture or kind act because of the ‘that’s what friends are for’ mentality. Many people have cut off friendships completely due to missing manners and imbalance in give and take.

Returning a favor is another way to be a great friend. If you’ve borrowed money from a person, it’s a great character trait, to pay the money back in the same expedient way in which the money was loaned to you. For the simple fact that everyone has bills and responsibilities. And I don’t know too many people in today’s time that can afford to loan money to someone with no return.

If you find yourself only contacting your great friend in your time of need, start sending ‘Just checking on you’ text messages or emails to your friend every once in a while; it goes a long way.

Many great friends have found themselves cutting dead weight eventually. People get tired of being used and taken for granted. People get tired of going out of their way for people who refuse to do the same in return. People get tired!

Shout out to all of the great friends of this universe. You are appreciated!

None Too Pleased

Mother Nature…

She ain’t none too pleased

They got us bent up; head to our knees

She’s a Queen though

Seeing what she sees

Oh, but they in trouble now

Because, Mother Nature!?

She ain’t none too pleased

Can’t you hear the wind blowing!?

And the whistling of the trees?

She’s speaking to the leaders

Out here doing as they please

Starving the hungry; fining the homeless

Ethnic cleansing of Earth’s seeds

They don’t even realize what they started

With their costly and karmic misdeeds

See, what goes around comes around

Or so the story goes

What goes up must come down

And only Heaven knows

You see, Mother Nature…

She ain’t none too pleased

Because they got us bent up; head to our knees

Oh, but she’s coming though

YOU had better believe

NO mercy shall be given

When natures law performs; unbidden

And as the world begins to spin

Watch Mother nature take the win

They got us bent up; head at our knees

And Mother Nature…

She ain’t none too pleased
