This is a video Produced in an effort to offer the world hope in such a time as this. My hope is you find the inspiration and encouragement you need to move forward.
I’ll admit I can’t sing as I desire, so
I’ll leave singing to those I admire.
I’ll just keep my dancing shoes on, and
I’ll do a little dance to R & B songs.
But, if I could sing…
I’d sing when a song spring forth.
I’d sing out loud walking down the aisle.
I’d sing along with the sparrows when I wake up.
I’d sing with the crows until I fall asleep.
I’d sing gospel on weekdays.
I’d sing songs of praise without a reason.
When I am happy, I’d sing the blues when sad.
I’d sing a little jazz, too.
I’d write my own love songs to sing along.
I’d sing them acapella like a diva anywhere.
I’d sing in a crowd without anyone asking.
I’d sing karaoke at anyone’s request.
Oh, if I could sing, I would!
The sign clearly says “No parking. 24 hour active drive way.
It does not say, I have no right to take a little rest right here.
Mine your business, as for your concerns, I’ve got more than my foot on and off the ground, I own this property.

God is still in control.
He has the world in His hands.
In the stillness of their resting place,
differences disarmed and laid aside,
their kindred souls now equal,
on one accord, and at rest,
Black Girls, Brown Girls, Dark Girls,
come in all shades of darkness.
Some in shades of Black, Brown,
Caramel, Red, and Yellow.
Some tall, short, round,
and some are thick, thin, and curvy.
Some are intellectual, musical,
inspirational, sensational, and motivational.
Some are mothers, sisters, grandmothers,
teachers, pastors, writers, artists, leaders,
executives, administrators, friends, wives,
doctors, lawyers, scientists, entertainers,
athletes, CEOs, Congresswomen, and the
Some are hurt, rejected, segregated,
despised, hated, loved, celebrated,
liberated, married, divorced, single,
manipulated, encouraged, and discouraged.
Some have failed, in cells, been to jailed.
Some were burned, killed, raped, mutilated,
Some demonstrated, birthed nations, raised
their babies and other folks babies.
Some have long hair, short hair, curly hair,
nappy hair, kinky hair, wavy, and weaves.
Some are sometimes happy, sad, excited,
delighted, belligerent, diligent, militant,
anxious, suspicious, malicious, meticulous,
ridiculous, talented, creative, successful,
classy, sassy, talkative, sensitive, insensitive,
sensual, sexy, spiritual, holistic, charismatic,
charming, and gracious.
But, all of them know how it feels to be
a Brown girl.
