my pupils enlarge

when I look at you

because I have to

expand my view to

take all of you in,

you in all your glory,

in all your beauty,

in all your wonder.


my heart expands

to make room for

all the love that I

choose for you each

day, as it grows

with each new bond

that we tie together,

joining our hearts

in solidarity as we

take on the world.

Updates on Life—Bigger in Texas!

So, it’s been awhile since my last post on here, but a lot of things have changed! I’m currently living in Texas, working a new job and enjoying the newness of a different place, a budding relationship, and culture shock.

Here in the Lone Star State, the sweet tea will make your teeth curl, the BBQ is heavenly, and there are breakfast tacos galore.

I think it’s time to take a walk on the wild…

we were on a boat,

and for some reason, 

instead of staring at the

beauty of the landscape,

I killed time staring at


but you never saw me,

and that is all that

I will remember of that.


I want so badly to write about you; how you fill my heart with joyous song, and how your “I love you” is the sweetest refrain I’ve ever heard.

But the words I want to say transfer from the tip of my tongue to your mouth with every kiss, and that leaves me with so few words to write.

Maybe, if I could stop the world from spinning into a haze around me whenever I get lost in your eyes, I would be able to find the clarity necessary to articulate the feelings I’m experiencing.

I am lost in your eyes,
and they are full of possibilities.



The Howard alumni who was shot in the head made a speedy recovery and she was able to tell her side of the story. The police said that it was a drive by conducted by a group of black men and that it was fatal. They didn’t expect her to survive and talk.

What the hell is going on?

San Antonio citizens showed out in support of Ferguson and against the abuses of the police institutions that have threatened the very existence of black life in the United States.

There were a few hundred people who attended the moment of silence rally and the majority of the crowd continued on a march from a downtown park, where the rally was held, to the centrally located courthouse, where this video was taken.

From there, a smaller group marched to a nearby police station where a similar chanting circle like the one shown here was formed.

Overall the event went well without any real problems or run-ins with law enforcement.

The important takeaway from this whole experience for me is that there are people who care. The number might be greatly outweighed by those who are complacent or distracted or straight up don’t believe there is a problem, but there are people who care.

And because of what’s happening in Ferguson and because of what has been happening in our country since its creation, the death of black individuals at the hands of corrupt systems and racist players, we the people, who give a shit about life, black life, which is worth more than how it is treated in our country, are willing to stand up and shout those beliefs in front of the world.

I was so happy when I saw the turn out for my city tbh it’s great to see just how many people really do care
