Time period 1981, Ronald Reagan was the President; Duke Ellington the Jazz Orchestra leadercomposer- pianist musical titled “Sophisticated Ladies”, premiered on Broadway, and the world mourned the loss of the greatest reggae musician and singer Bob Marley. Musically, theatrically and creatively the planet was making a great movement in the arts. This was the year I was born. Bundled in my Mother’s LOVING arms while she attended the Oasis of LOVE church under the pastoral care of John Osteen; where my birth was previously prophesied to my Mother after, she experienced a miscarriage. She was told, “Don’t feel disheartened you will be restored” and then I was born-born from LOVE; born into a creative season and born into purpose-that I had not yet discovered. Predestined for this bitter; sweet heart string symphony, preordained to be a philanthropist through poetry, and to revive real LOVE through the beauty of my poetry. I was born in one of the steamiest, high humidity, and warmest months of the year; yes, August; in Houston, Texas. Writing poetry, songs, lyrics, drawing, painting, fashion design, and music has always been a part of my life since a very young age. I was in my school’s talent show at the age of 10, entered the art shows, was in my middle school’s band and sang in my high school’s gospel choir. Creativity was always second nature to me.
I give to you my poetry; torn directly out of the pages of my diaries. Where I put ink to paper, expressed my most inner private feelings, where I wrote prayers to GOD, romantic LOVE letters, poems, psalms, mantras and just ultimately let my gift of writing that GOD gave me take over my diary’s pages. This poetry book is the writings from my second diary out of many-many more. Volume Two: Bitter; Sweet Heart String Symphony was written in 2003; my poetry continued to birth out of my soul. Poetically documenting this bluesy LOVE song ballad with a beating pain percussion orchestra that echoed a bitter; sweet melody, that I called LOVE-it harmonized with my soul and my inner tempo as I endured this pseudo LOVE Symphony. This poetry book is an entire year of my writings captured; suspended in time for you to read; for this very day. Stay on this journey with me; read Volume One then Volume Two along with other Volumes to come. Read the genesis of my story and hear the revelation of the ending of my story hidden in the poems. My first poetry book is the writings from my very first diary, Volume One: Tears, Honey, Hip-Hop and Passion were written at the end of September 2001 through all of 2002.
