Just let me light my cigarette fo’ I die and I’ll tell you what happened (strike, light and inhale) she blows the smoke in the air with a sigh as she begins to talk, this is what happened, I was telling him how I felt and I actually poured my heart out to him. Now you know thats some ish I normally don’t do.
(Takes another puff of life, blow)
Do you know he responded with only two maybe three words after I gave him an essay of feelings from my heart and thats all I get is two dry throat ass words
(Puffn and talking)
‘oh really’ thats when I realized he don’t care for me and I felt used. (Sniffled) So, I slapped his face and ran out the door. I must’ve dropped my cigarettes on the way out, I was going mad without my cigarettes.



When visitation hours were up my mother gave me a hug and she had to leave. First I was taken from her by force and now she’s forced to leave me. As soon as she left the room and the door slammed shut, I broke into a million pieces. I believe that was the hardest Iv’e had cried since the first night I realized my whole family was gone and I feared I would never see them again.

I immediately walked over to the huge windows anticipating something would change. Will she come back? Is she going to her car to get something special for me? Did she have a surprise like my brothers were waiting to come see me? Every thought of hope clouded my mind as I started to feel anxious anticipating her return.

Working on my book;
This is a piece from Ch.5 in my book. It took a lot from me because I have to relive a time in my life that devastated me as a little girl living in the care of the state. ~ a kaLon Writer

Without Love

Love is a learned behavior
and I missed that lesson
Long time ago

So now Im trapped in
A Loveless love affair
With no place to go

Except Up to the sky
Where everyone receives love
from the Most high

Yet we need tangible love
The kind of love that touches
the core of your soul

and holds you when
Time gets rough
Like the Winter cold

And hot summer nights
Eventually he appears
and speaks
baby it’ll be alright

As he reads my story
Through my tears
he is creating my glory
As I reflect back thru the years

That I missed out on love
and felt lonely as a dove
In a pond full of ducks

I have come to realize
He was saving me
for someone special
not just any ole schmuck

So It all makes sense
my past with out love
Because I now know
He was sent from above.


The Naked Me

I want him
to love
me for me
with no
no make up
no nails
not even
a weave
I hope my
Heaven sent
man loves…


My skin isn’t
My body
isn’t toned
My head is
big and
my feet
is long
Yet my heart
is strong
and she
still holds on
to find the
one who
Truly belongs to

The Naked Me

Who are you
and where do
you live
I would travel
the world
down to
the last city
In hopes to
find the one
God created
to love
me for me
whole heartedly.

The Naked Me


Dating Advice


Dating can be intimidating and the fear of rejection is always looming over our heads. However, dating is a healthy and fun way to allow yourself to become acquainted with someone you find interesting as well as attractive.

Before you consider stepping out on the dating scene, you should have established a definite idea of who you are and what type of person you are looking for. In addition you should be clear about your intentions while dating. Are you looking for friendship, a relationship and most of all love.

The attraction is the beginning and the easiest part of dating. It only takes less than a minute for one to find themselves mesmerized by a sexy woman or a handsome man. However, it can take days, weeks and even months to get to know if the person you’re attractive to physically is compatible with you mentally.

Honesty plays a significant role in dating. It can make or break the date. It takes courage to be honest with a stranger and open up your personal bag of baggage. You risk the chance of rejection yet you glean the right information that will lead to the perfect match.

Dating is what you make it. You are the filter and if you are true to yourself you will find the right person even if it’s just a friend by being honest with yourself and especially your date.
