Tuesday September 25: 🔗 in bio 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Aminah Ali is a materialistic hair boss fresh out of federal prison hungry to be back on top. A young single mother motivated by her two children, she vows to give them the life she never had by any means. Legally and illegally. After a short setback, she is finally back in business with all high-end labels, fly cars and money to blow but Aminah's path is interrupted when she meets Legecy Jackson. He's a sexy, young, successful entrepreneur taking Chicago by storm. Legecy appears to be the man of Aminah's dreams, but he has a secret or two he'll reveal once she's fallen head over heels. Is Legecy the King to Aminah's Queen? Or another natural born hustler?
Oh yes! I will prove my point. Times have not changed. Women are settling and lowering their expectations.
I love trying different styles of poetry. It helps me to challenge myself as a poet. Here is a twist on a #diminishingpoem , a style that I recently fell in love with. Enjoy. 📷: @joancarolphotography ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #poetrycommunity #poetryforms #poetry #poetryofinstagram #poetryofinsta #writingcommunity #writingcommunityofig #poets #poetsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetryporn #blackpoets #blackwriters #blackpoetsociety

“The Principle of Reverse means when you understand how productively you can use the odds by overturning them for your growth. . In life, there are no failures, only lessons. When we dwell on the frustration of what is not working, we don't see how to make what is not working to begin to work. We get depressed instead of asking the right questions. Those questions are where the amazing discoveries lie. . Whatever has made us stuck can be a lesson in disguise if we understand it as a point of seeking better answers to who we are, where we are, and what we could have done differently. The Principle of Reverse is seeing the incidence with optimism and seeking to use frustration energy as fuel for pushing our lives forward.” . Mmaduabuchi Obinelo, Entrepreneur & Writer

RP @mrkenny_m "On September 10, 2016, I caught an Uber ride where I met a driver whose name shall remain nameless. Prior to this day, I had taken several #Uber trips, but none of them were as particularly interesting as this one. The driver, whose name shall remain nameless, asked if I was interested in some sort of drug, and when I told him I was not into that type of stuff, he went on to tell me the most interesting story I've ever heard from an Uber driver. And just like that, #DROP was created." @dropwebseries #writer #blackmen #blackwriters #creative #originalcontent #director #producer #lovewhatyoudo #HobbyTurnedPassion #haitianmen #webseries #insecure #abff #colorcreative #followyourdreams #gogators #orlando #talented #tvwriter
Hang on, baby. ❤️ Sweet Sunday !
I wanted to share this because it’s ironic how depression has been my topic for Blaqunikornsblog lately and I stumbled across this in my Facebook memories.....I was 22 at the time. If you’ve read my blog post this was right after I was dealing with depression on a higher scale. Depression doesn’t have a face, it isn’t noticeable on people all the time ! What I have learned tho is that we cry for help through social media and I STILL struggle at 27 but my heart is so full at how much I’ve grown and learned about this ! Seek help, talk to someone! Please don’t think you can do it all on your own because you do yourself a disservice!

By the year 2021, the U.S. government has sold patents for the DNA of every form of plant life to big corporations and pharmeceutical companies. These companies decide to hoard fruits, vegetables, herbs, roots, and other holistic supplies from people with less money.

I needed a second to recharge. Yesterday, I didn’t pick up my pen not once. I didn’t leave my house not once. I literally locked myself in as an ARTIST. I refocused and conceptualized the art I wanted to create. I got back to my roots by watching my old favorite cartoons that made me want to become a writer from the beginning. I listened to every R&B album that inspired me to create beautiful poetry. Thank you @hermusicofficial. I mentally studied 3 classic film screenplays that were similar to what I wanted to create. I took a day for me, for the first time. It’s vital that you know when to take a timeout in life because in those moments are where you grow most. Powered my phone off and refrained from scrolling social media and forced myself to grow...and what did I learn from all this? Is that my talent is constantly evolving, and my next few pieces of art that I release in stores will help me step into a new dimension. Welcome to the Land of Nostalgia.✍🏾

I don’t think I would’ve arrived at being a #womanist had it not been for two things: 1) experiencing the crushing effects of systemic racism and oppression 2) being a mother of Black children who doesn’t want them to have self-hatred of their own, Black identity Yet undergoing my own liberation while keeping an eye on their development has been a challenge. Historically (due to the separation of families during slavery), Black women have had to be everything: the mammy, the maid, the mother, the father, the laborer, the bread winner. For me, freedom means that I don’t feel pressured to be everything to everyone. Liberation means I choose. Today, I choose to do creative work that fulfills me and gives me joy. I choose to raise children who have a deep understanding of their ancestral identity and royal history. I choose to earn my living in ways that do not cause me to sacrifice my dignity at the hands of oppressive systems. I choose. My forebears didn’t have the luxury to choose, and so today, I live out their dream by making a simple, free choice. . . . . . . . #womanism #melaninpoppin #Blackwriters #Blackauthors #literary #quotes #quoteme #ToniMorrison #WeNeedDiverseBooks #Ownvoices #Novelist #writerslife #feminism #feminist #Blackwomen #Blackgirlmagic #writersofig #motherhood #writingcommunity #amwriting #authorsofig #BelieveBlackWomen #ListentoBlackWomen

I faced fears and started a daily writing practice this January. It played a major role in empowering me to apply to writing workshops this summer like VONA and In Surreal Life, where I finally found the guidance and mentorship I've been searching for for years. I've been learning how to revise again, how to convey my voice without requiring me to read to you, how to create a body of work. So here is my latest experiment: a new self published chapbook. It is my first since my CUPSI days and my first primarily concerned with the possibilities of the page. I saddle stitched it my myself. Limited release to leave more intentional room for the next one. My voice is changing. This is a sound check. #albummode #ghostlinescollective #mybookshelfweighsaton #writing #poetry #book #chapbook #poetry #poetsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetryslam #spokenword #afrolatinx #blackwriters #latinxwriters #caribbeanwriters #90skids #00skids

Day 5: my first contrapuntal ______ I am determined to grow this season. I am determined to finish what I start. ______ A long time ago, I began writing about the so-called "Gourmet Ghetto" of Berkeley. The vision has always been a collection - either play or publish. I don't know what it will be in the end but it feels so good to move towards something. #mybookshelfweighsaton #ghostlinescollective #gourmetghetto #writing #poetsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetryslam #spokenword #afrolatinx #blackwriters #latinxwriters #caribbeanwriters #poetry #contrapuntal
