Happy 4th of July to you! I thank you for turning the other cheek to the BBQ if you are reading this post. It’s just me, my mama and this holiday today. My son is spending some rare time with his father, two half siblings, and his father’s girlfriend. Ironically I am watching the film “Diary of A Tired Black Man”. This film tackles a lot of issues which I can relate to and I have experienced first hand. I’m content with the fact my ex and I have reached a point where we can all (new girlfriend too) be content. If you look at some of my poetry you see it was not easy going up the rough side of the mountain and still we have our ups and down. He was concerned that the new girlfriend and I would be uncomfortable with one another but also stated that he respected both of our roles. Word! I let him know that if any fireworks popped off today it would be between me and him if anything… we respect one another but are aware of our battle lines. Yeah I can write on and on about me, the ex, the next, my son, and his half-siblings (whom I love dearly) but I will save it for another post, another poem.
In the meantime, I want to send lots of love to a UniverSouLove…. New York is waiting on you – and this time your going 🙂 Please check out this talented and dynamic poet at http://www.universoulovethepoet.com/ (yes I manage that blog/website too) or at www.myspace.com/universoulove7 and on Twitter at www.twitter.com/UniverSouLove and wish him well. Also we are always looking for spoken word venues for feature opportunities. Next stop is California!
Alright thank you for allowing me to soak up some of your time today… now wipe that BBQ sauce off of your face.. and enjoy the holiday!
