This is a poem I wrote on Christmas Eve. I originally wrote it with one person in mind, but as I prayed over it, God had someone else in mind. I was just sitting in the living room with my mom and a friend, and in the middle of the conversation, God said, "Her. Quick.… Continue reading That Twinkle in Your Eye
She struts in Glitter bodycon Black beauty High heels Red hair Heads turn her way Her hips sway Queen She dances Hypnotic Unaware of stares Gypsy home Always moving and moving and moving Until the lights are off And the music stops She sings Her own song And keeps dancing Black beauty
She sits in her pocket of the world unperturbed by toxic kisses With her eyes closed she carves designs into her skin— Swirls and lines— With her fingernails on her thighs She sits in the quiet atmosphere half asleep Tired from sleazy men and their slimy words She rubs her hands along the fabric… Continue reading She Sits *Edited*
One of my most favorite things is the rain. I was jumping around in the puddles in my shoes, singing "Open the flood gates of Heaven! Let it rain!" as it continued to rain harder. When I got back to my room, I was dripping little puddles on my floor. I emptied everything out of… Continue reading Dancing in the Rain
I came to college expecting so much, and I am still expecting so much. I am expecting God to move powerfully. This first week, however, was like fighting Goliath. On Thursday, last week, classes began, and my thought was, "What could possibly happen in the first week?" Let me tell you, apparently everything can happen… Continue reading My Life ft. My Stupidity

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as… Continue reading The Beginning of Something Wonderful
I thought about posting on Monday, and I thought about it again on Tuesday, but nothing much had happened, so I thought I would wait until today. Monday night I had the opportunity of talking to my Tulsa Best Friend for a few hours. We were talking through FaceTime. It was really nice seeing her.… Continue reading Home Stretch
Everyday this week I have thought about writing a post, and then I just didn't. So here I am apologizing. I am incredibly sorry. *Does a full ninety degree Korean bow.* I would love to make the excuse that I've been busy, but if I say that, then I have to give you proof I've… Continue reading Is it too late to say I procrastinate?
The weekend was generally, fairly good. My week of no meat is over, however, now I am not eating sugar. I crave sweet things too much, so I'm trying to break that craving. Although, this is now forcing me to eat healthier-- like veggies and fruit. (Oh, the horror.) I'm reading three books at the… Continue reading I’m tired. Let’s get this over with.
Well, I succeeded. I completed a goal. I finished a book today. Although, I should warn you, I read, easily, two to five books at once. See, I totally meant to finish The Red Queen. What I actually finished was Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst. I won't say much about it here since I'll post a review shortly after,… Continue reading Twenty-Four Hour Time Travel. (No It’s Not A Service. Although It Should Be.)
