Opinion: Get Over Yourself Cardi B

Opinion: Get Over Yourself Cardi B

It’s abhorrent for Cardi B to drop the N-word (I’m specifically referencing it’s usage in her hit song: Money), period. Cardi B’s parents are of Hispanic and East Indian descent, of the Dominican Republic and Trinidad; yet Cardi says she identifies as Black, and backs this stating all Hispanics come from African descent (…I…

Self Expression is Not a Cry For Help

Self Expression is Not a Cry For Help

I’m going to start speaking in riddle and rhyme, for to lay my heart bare is personal crime. I hide from the world, ashamed- my true place, I sit and spin fingers through memories of lace. To hear my heart mourning begs perception acute. It would be more appealing if it strummed as a…

Stories From – Risk of Rain

Stories From – Risk of Rain

That sound, so familiar. It starts as an infrequent, even random, tip-tip-tap. The pace picks up; the rhythm hastens to the point of near deafening white noise. Rain. I come to, body aching, mind jarred, nerves beyond shaken. As I stand up, wreckage beneath me, my feet squish in the barren purple marsh, in…
