I wrote this today at work|
Swimming into me
Diving deeper below the surface of my soul
To my own inner bottom
Fertilizing ancient roots and deciphering hieroglyphic codes
Meeting my reflection in my own inner G
I’m digging me
Back strokes through times clouds
Reincarnations of a solar existence
Dancing on planets
My auras magnetic
Reaching Christ conscious
My shadows aren’t forsaken
For darkness is the highest light
Climbing spectrums of rays
I take flight to resurface on the shore of my soul

But when it's all a game, she loses everything fighting to make the possibilities a reality. Farrah's in too deep to move on. Pushing for the romance that is in her mind instead of accepting what is and letting go.

This is truly pretty freak’n dope! We love to see our black men taking a stand to combat the injustices and inequalities against people of color. .
dropped a new single on Wednesday boasting about his recent purchase of a news website in order to run “racists b—–s out of business.”⠀
The 25-year-old Chicago native announced in a song titled “I Might Need Security” that he now owns the Chicagoist.com, a local news, food, and culture outlet, rapping:⠀
“I got a hit-list so long I don’t know how to finish, I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist b—-s out of business.”⠀
In the politically charged song, Chance raps over a vocal loop of Jamie Foxx repeatedly singing “f–k you” and calls for the resignation of Chicago’s embattled mayor, Rahm Emanuel. The entertainer also accuses Emanuel of granting paid suspensions to police officers who’ve fatally shot unarmed black people.⠀
According to the Chicagoist’s sister site the Gothamist, Chance’s newly formed company, Social Media LLC, purchased the site from New York Public Radio’s WNYC station, which acquired both the Chicagoist and the Gothmaist as well as the other -ist network of sites in February. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Perhaps one of the most valuable facets of being human is the ability to preserve our soundness of mind. The human consciousness is unlike anything any other living organism on Earth possesses. The ability to project ourselves onto a calming plane of existence that resides outside of our physical realm is nothing short of godlike. Amidst the onslaught of images and ideologies of the social media age we find ourselves deprived the experience of a quieted mind. For those less fortunate, female, and/or, darker pigmented the value of separating one’s self from the injustices of the world increases astronomically. When was the last time you gave your mind a break? Have you ever surrendered your thoughts completely
and allowed your brain to only operate on its automatic bodily functions. You may discover five minutes seem like an eternity when you are thinking of nothing. You will discover you have always had more than enough time to give yourself a break! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” - Bruce Lee #writersofinstagram #lovequotes #authorsofinstagram #blackwriters #blackauthors #metaphysics #affirmations
Creativity is power, use it wisely.
Maybe she just outgrew you. Maybe she got tired of rereading the same chapter of her life twice and 3x on rewind. Maybe she got tired of you not making up your mind and giving her time. Maybe she wanted more, connected with the universe and wanted to explore. Maybe she finally gathered the strength to get up and walk out that door. It’s okay to be mad, but at the person in the mirror. Because while she was screaming for you, you couldn’t even hear her.❤️✍🏾🌹

Writing was never what I thought I would enjoy doing… but one day, something changed. I suffered from mental illnesses for 22 years and turned to writing as a safe method for healing and coping. Through the success of my first two books, a devotional and a self-development book, I have been able to work with and mentor youth in my community. It brings me joy to be able to have those uncomfortable, yet necessary conversations with young people- hearing their voices and celebrating their individuality. What began as writing to help me heal, has now turned into writing to help others heal and be set free. As I cross into Christian Fiction, I thank God for how He has chosen to use me. When asked about my ministry’s name I simply say, “Life didn’t happen to me, God happened to M.E. (God Happened To Michelle Early).” 👏🏽👏🏽

Day 16 of 26 Facts before my 26th birthday.
Today's fact is about my writing and why I chose to write in the genre that I did. I mainly chose Young Adult because of how much you can do with the genre. I have written stories where my characters are adults but I love writing YA lol.
Growing up not alot of the YA novels I read had people who looked like me. I wanted to change that and as the old saying goes, "Be the Change you wish to see!" Also to me you can do so much with YA novels because the teenagers are just starting to find themselves.
Anywho, If you're a new follower or wondering why I've been telling you all things about myself allow me to let you in. My name is K. Monae and I am a writer currently finishing up my debut YA Novel. I plan to self-publish in 2019. Thats were social Media comes in. I'm hoping to build an online presence because I'm not lost on the fact that the internet plays a big roll in the industry. With that being said I'm excited for you all to get to know me. And to eventually read this book of mine. -
