She's On SoundCloud?? Yup!

If you didn't know, now you know! There are many ways to relate with me, connect with me and receive my message you just need to find the medium that you like most.

I use SoundCloud for my Spoken Word/Poetry often tagged as #ThatWritten most bitten, which literally means a truth or story that you can ruminate on through thoughts. My work often contains matters of the mind because that is the biggest battlefield that man has, forget nuclear wars and conflict around the globe.. the mind is being competed for by so many things in this life. SoundCloud takes the pressure off of having to create with a face to face product of creativity, and by that I mean the type of content I make for YouTube. My initial thoughts when I joined SoundCloud was to have a jazzy/soulful feel to my Spoken Word/Poetry but that was not maintained at intervals where I got the inspiration to try other kinds of music.

This also wasn't possible because I have a diverse poetic mind AND when I try to box myself, I naturally just end up outside of that box. I started on July 2, 2013 with my introducing track on what I hoped to bring and the short story behind my name. Soon after I was exploring other artists, songwriters, beatmakers and rappers who had something distinct about them. SoundCloud gave me the privilege of knowing some of these folks before anyone else was able to generate hype about their "new" discoveries. I've had the opportunity to flip some of their content and share it with the world. I know that 2016 is not over yet, but you can look forward to some important updates relating to my upcoming book being shared there in 2017! So watch out for that.

I want to publish a book, it will be a collective  of my work from the start of my journey at 8 years old til Summer 2015. Hold me to it !

Donuts & Coffee

It's what you did when you screen-shoted me
Negotiating a disservice for my existence
Calling me out my name because I was not born of you
Adding to lies on a case you were absent to observe 
Realizing your deepest fear lay between hand and joint
Calling on a ship once again to import me that's how you saw me
Explaining the situation, and scenarios that played out
Retailing my image to negatively skew the black market, respectfully you were absent
Actually I remembered you never questioned me
Throwing shades to further distance any feelings of remorse
Instigator of all decisions to lock me down longer
Only on the life of my mother, do I constantly die every day
Never release me expecting to be the same, I'll only carry on better

Into blood-shot eyes I could see you didn't care, training didn't equip you with this 
No you made that decision all on your own 
Calling me everything from the great depression to the ruins of Mali
Ask Mr officer how many times he tried to guilt-trip me for something I lived unaware of
Raising a hand to me thinking it will raise standards
Closely examining my actions while I close my case on your repeatedly 
Excellence? Yes it was achieved before you lock and keyed me here
Restore my dignity to me before you strip and search for a reason to hold me to ransom
And go back to the moments when you stopped me because my face was too young and naive
To fit the description dispatched by whom to ride this motor
Expect nothing from me but the value & respect, of which my parents instilled in me
Study. Study me a little longer, why not you're wasting my years anyway

I want to publish a book, it will be a collective  of my work from the start of my journey at 8 years old til Summer 2015. Hold me to it !
