Enough With Entertainer Smear Campaigns!

In light of the Prince smear campaign, I’ve got to speak up. This happens too often with those people who not only entertain us, but enrich our lives, and become a part of our journey through life.

Though many would like to personally know their entertainer heroes, you’re given the opportunity to share in the creativity and talent they chose to share.

Does learning of their personal lives, takeaway from the art, music, movies, writing, etc., that they gave you? It shouldn’t.

So, for the entertainers I know, work with, love, and support… Thank you! For sharing your gift with me, and countless others. What you choose to do in your personal life, is just that; personal. And frankly, is none of anyone’s business during your life or death.

Southernly: K*Chele

Open Your Eyes

When you can’t see what’s in front of you slipping away, that, is indeed a sad day.

More and more we struggle with things we have. Meaning, we forget their importance and how quickly they can be removed. Wether by fate, tragedy, or choosing of their own. Once they’ve moved beyond our grasp, there is an unlikely chance, to get them back.

Open your eyes to all that is, truly, important. Those things you have failed to see, due to day to day blindness, selfishness, or mere lack of regard. Realizing those things that once were, may never be again, if you choose to neglect because you can.


One of Life’s Little Mysteries

It sweeps in, catching you by surprise

No respect of persons, affecting many lives

Attacking every emotion, even though you try

To keep your composure and hold it all inside

The good is hard to see, when its you that it has reached

If only it were a dream, this disease they attempt to treat

Faith will be strengthened and tested along the way

Though dreading, you’re thankful for another day

Eventually, this too shall pass

One of life’s little mysteries

Stays with us, but don’t last
