Just over a week ago I had a conversation with Dr. Na'im Akbar, one of our nation's foremost scholars who is well-known for his Afro-centric approach to psychology. It was his book "Visions for Black Men" that became the centerpiece of my college thesis and one of my greatest influences, in both my writing and my life. Though we spoke through email while I was working on "The Dichotomy of Black Consciousness", I'm glad we finally got the chance to meet face-to-face and have a little sit down. Thank you Dr. Akbar for your kind words and the wisdom you have passed along.
Special thanks as well to the alumni of FAMU High School for having me. I've never called Tallahassee home, but it has always felt like one.

It's a contradicting emotion but sometimes I hate the process of writing. I hate the build up of my mind racing- hurtful moments having to be faced- confusing moments that need clarity... but I love the feeling when my mind can be rested and silent for a split second... when my internalized processing explodes visually... feelings can be assigned names, anxiety filtered through... pictures drawn and so many conflicting thoughts can be written in no order what so ever except how they come out. Sometimes lately I'm feeling that my feelings and thoughts might not be totally insane as much as I believe they are... but still only sometimes.

Hi guys, I know you've seen my art, but I thought I'd give you a taste of some of my poems. "I'm Fat" 馃槀 I wrote this when someone called me fat. "I'm trying". I wrote these years ago. Happy Thursday馃槒. Seeing Dispicable Me tomorrow, have to use my Fandango ticket that expires July 1st. 馃榿. Working on some projects. Have a good one. .

Farewell, my Loves: Inspired by a true story.

Love.
Passion.
Obsession.

There was no way to distinguish one from the other in my life.
Nothing in this world could destroy a bond as fierce as ours.

Or so I believed鈥
Because life interfered.
Impulsive decisions, reaped unyielding consequences.
Fate had a way of making you question your sanity.
Loyalties were blurred.
Priorities, poisoned.
And destiny鈥 destiny dispelled all our beliefs.

In the end love was just too consuming.
Tragic even.

Without a doubt, love... crossed many unfathomable lines. #FarewellMyLovesTheBook
