That is the power that you need: to see you control where you wish to go. Just know, that you’ll be okay. The hurricane will be no more, and all that drowned you will retreat back to its core.


I will forever write how I feel, and share it with the world, until my story is told.

If you feel you are at the end of a cross road, and feel you are left on a cloudy dusty road time and time again, torn up by the cruelty that may manifest itself through a broken heart, a broken vision, or a broken dream, I encourage you to read the story of a girl who learned the greatest lesson of heartbreak. For a story that is shared with the world is one that empowers, and whatever empowers you in life will be where you are found, and refound, when you feel all hope is lost…


Her desiccating gut is twisting in pain as the poison rises up, thoughts echoing.
As the lies unfold and the torture bleeds out, due to a broken heart.
Instinct kicks in and she begins to forcefully part from everything she once knew,
from the only love where she  felt she  found truth.
When will the volatile acid escape?
Toxicity, as it seeps into the porous skeleton that frames the network and keeps her tall.
For she has stopped all her organs, the heart along with the system, once she decided to give up, even though she missed it. Light turned into darkness but in darkness she finds peace. Her body, her heart, her soul craves for the love like before. A love that seems to have fleeting

After a while, you learn to catch yourself.

After a while, you learn to catch yourself.

moments, from this life. Where her flesh ignites into flames where his hand remained at a lingering moment.

Lingers…his presence will remain in each step she takes as time twists every truth that life did create.
For all she wanted, all she craved, all she needed to escape this life of pain, was found the moment her eyes fell upon his.
Letting go will be the hardest thing she will ever have to do, but she is smart enough to know when she can no longer climb the rope. Her hand is slipping, she looked down, full of panic and dismay.
And he  was not there to catch her.
You will always stand the test of time. When you feel the weight of the world is at your hands and the sinking hole that was once your heart plummets deep into your chest, and you feel as though you’ll fall beneath your feet, the love around you will remind you of the lessons you were put on this earth to teach.

For you are a sailor, set the sails so you can soar and you can glide, to everything you wish to find.

That is the power that you need: to see you control where you wish to go. Just know, that you’ll be okay. The hurricane will be no more, and all that drowned you will retreat back to its core. And when the storm clears, you’ll find the love that remained. You’ll finally understand the reasons why you kept playing the game.

You don’t know when, but your efforts will pay off, if you follow the fool proof voice. And where is that found? Silly girl, you had it all along; inside.

It seems my dreams are not so far away...

It seems my dreams are not so far away…

I try to find, the beauty in this life.

I search inside, and in every corner that  it can hide.

It seems my dreams are not so far away,

and it brings me home to where I belong.

What about taking chances? Can’t remember what romance is, as I try to light the fire in my soul.

For a heart that’s left unbroken? Well that’s one that’s rare to find.

Be fearless, I hope you’ll try to open every window you find in your life.

Was it worth it? She thought to herself, as she scribbles on pages, in black and white.
Should I have left it there, in the night sky? I was captivated by the twinkle of the stars, lighting up the desire in your eyes.
We live for the night, and where it takes our minds, beyond what is on the ground. People

Look to the stars for the answers..

Look to the stars for the answers..

like us, well we are meant to explore, to seek the more that is beyond our sight, past even our greatest expectations that stem to the core of our being here, right now, on this rocky, yet forever moving world. Slowly. Yet we don’t follow in the earth’s example, for we jump right in, and expect what we want to come and blossom at the next day’s appearance. We expect our new life to begin, at the stars’ departure, the hope that springs up from the rise of the sun, we want to believe that destiny has won after years of waiting, but it has not. There is no warning, no predicting fate; there is only a beginning.

In the beginning, one cannot know of the truth from moments spent, for it takes more than the magic trapped within effortless nightfall.
Romance is blinding to our judgment, and it conceals and masks our vision of the time we had spent building a life for ourselves. Lust for the body is a carnal need, hunger for the mind? That is the real danger, especially when one realizes that now is the time to concede to the possibility that just maybe, they have found where they belong. Chances must be taken to get where we need to go. And just as serenity was found and sealed in the stars of that cool autumn night, beauty, passion, and courage can be found in the collision with another’s eyes, into the soul. Our minds forever withstand the test of time.

These are my thoughts, I leave here, to seep into the seals of the pages I keep as a reminder that inspiration lies within the soul that I feed with new experiences. Each moment withholds a new story to be told, and a new path filled with passion, and freedom to share so another can know that when it happens to them? They are never alone.

Don’t stop living just because you have been hurt over and over again. Each time, you will be closer to finding exactly where you need to be, and honesty has proven to forever be the key. Action will possess a greater healing power then time ever will. It is not about time, but what you do with it, that gives life its purpose. How do I know? The story is, this  girl is me.


People go through ups and downs because of the cruelty, passion, temptation, blessings, and hardships that life throws our way. Every person reaches a point when they feel that all hope is lost, where they are stuck in a battle between who they were, who they are now, and who they would like to become. Every person reaches a point when they want nothing to do with the world, for those people have been knocked down so many times, the answers are clouded in t heir mind. However, that is why the human race is an interconnected civilization. We know what each other needs, even if the other feels they do not want it because they are a t the bottom of their pit of struggles. Always remember, you are always braver near the end of your patience, near the end of your dark time, near the end of what you feel is all that’ s left for you. There is forever hope in that. So I believe angels do exist, and they are found when we feel we want nothing to do with socialization. Angels are found in the friends that stay by our side and push us out of the brick wall of comfort that we built for ourselves. Angels are found all around us, even when we push them away, and can be recognized by the ones who stay by our sides, and everyone deserves an angel. Learn to accept this love, and you will be unstoppable, no matter what life may throw you. That love may not be what you expected, but it will be what you can always call your home.


On this road, you’re never alone.

So never forget, on this road, you’re never alone.

Identity Magazine is all about empowering women to get all A’s in the game of life — Accept. Appreciate. Achieve.TM Every contributor and expert answer the Identity 5 questions in keeping with our theme. As a team, we hope to inspire and motivate ourselves and inspire you to get all A’s.

What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? What are you still working on accepting?

I have accepted that I can’t control fate, and I can’t stop the world. For it will keep spinning in the life I keep living until I get what I deserve.

What have you learn to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? What are you still working on to appreciate?

I am a hopeless romantic. Always have been, always will be, and nothing in life can protect me from that. If I pretend to be someone I am not? I will forever live a life lacking spontaneity and taking chances, and that is FAR from being my style.

What is one of your most rewarding achievements in life? What makes YOU most proud? What goals and dreams do you still have?

I have recently performed inspirational speeches filled with my music and poetry at two conferences; I hope to expand this to reach a much wider scale as I develop my career. My dreams have just begun to become true, and I don’t plan on stopping them now!

We all have imperfections, so we think. The truth–we are all perfectly imperfect. What are your not-so-perfect ways? What imperfections and quirks create who you are–your Identity?

I have a gigantic heart, and sometimes my passion and compassion for others can cloud my judgment and breed the possibility of getting hurt. However, the only life worth living is the life filled with taking chances. Someone has to do it, why not make it you!

“I Love My…” is an outlet for you to express and appreciate all the positive traits that make you…well… YOU! Sharing what you love about yourself will make you smile, feel empowered, and uplift your spirit and soul. (we assure you!)

Identity challenges you to complete the phrase “I Love My…?

I love the strong person I have grown to be. I would not change any experience that I have faced in the past, no matter how difficult to overcome, or I would not be typing this sentence today. If I could tell someone the most positive thing about me, it would be that I have managed to turn even the darkest times of my life into a beacon of light, into something that I feed off of to inspire me to fulfill even my wildest of dreams.
