Soul Food

“Graduation Night” Taken by Me ❤

For the first time in a long time I cry happy tears.

Tears consumed with pride, and self accomplishment.


My Soul is happy.

As I stood in front of the sea,

everything stilled as I spoke.

I Spoke with words filled with truth and heartbreak.

Breaking down my Borderlands, breaking down their Borderlands.

Planting a seed in their soul,

Watching their beings as I preached and shun onto them a light of

Self awareness, dignity, self love, and and self growth.

Fed them Soul food.

As their Soul cried, and craved for more than just “knowledge”.

Food cultivated by past struggles and tribulations,

Pain and hunger.

Cultivated, seasoned and given to them with the hope of leaving them with a thirst for the truth, a thirst for more than their souls ever imagined.

They ended up thirsty,

I ended up full.

My Soul ended up dancing a song,

Mind racing with Joy,

Body tingling with comfort, and need for more Growth.

I am proud of my Being, Mind, Body, and Soul.

I am proud of the gifts given to me by God, David, My Father, Mother, Brother.

Blessed with those who only add to my light.

I walk with a new light, I dance with gusto, and life.

My soul is happy.

Continue to fill me with the seeds and blessings of honesty, happiness, and self growth.
