🚨👀BE AWARE👀🚨

(Based On Personal Experiences) I have been silent for a few days. I was thinking of recent & past situations. I have learned to calm my emotions, before responding. “A clear & calm mind & heart produces clear actions.” That being said…We had this “Me Too” movement, that didn’t really help many, in everyday life. I find that sexual harassment is still running rampant. You can still find it everywhere & yes, it’s in the Poetry world as well, BIG-TIME. Things are just more subtle. Like the movements of a hungry snake. Keeping in mind, it occurs more from men … Continue reading 🚨👀BE AWARE👀🚨

“We’re All In This Thing Called Life…TOGETHER, Remember?” “Namaste & One Love”❤️💛💚

Suicide is an important topic & cause to me. Having Mental Illness close in my own family, as well as working as a Case Manager, I can overstand how an individual can get to this point. It’s not always easy to ask for help, nor does one feel like it at times. It’s good to know that there are people who actually care. Don’t be afraid to seek help. “YOU ARE NOT ALONE.” A Facebook friend of mine (((Hi Baba Brett))) posted this & I simply had to share it.  ~Maxwanette A Poetess   Brett Traore September 17 at 9:40 … Continue reading “We’re All In This Thing Called Life…TOGETHER, Remember?” “Namaste & One Love”❤️💛💚

✨🌹We’re All In This Thing Called Life, TOGETHER…Remember?🌹✨

“This does my heart and my soul good, this is real,” leader singer of Aerosmith, Steven Tyler, 70, said in reference to his charity Janie’s House. Steven donated $500,000 to help open Janie’s House; a facility in Memphis, Tennessee, for girls who have been abused, neglected and are in need of a safe home. The home is the second of it’s kind run by the compassionate organization Youth Villages, which provides support for families with emotional, mental and behavioral problems.

✨✍🏾Today’s Poet ~ Lucille Clifton✍🏾✨ #FebruaryIsBlackHistoryMonth

  https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/lucille-clifton   A prolific and widely respected poet, Lucille Clifton’s work emphasizes endurance and strength through adversity, focusing particularly on African-American experience and family life. Awarding the prestigious Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize to Clifton in 2007, the judges remarked that “One always feels the looming humaneness around Lucille Clifton’s poems—it is a moral quality that some poets have and some don’t.” In addition to the Ruth Lilly prize, Clifton was the first author to have two books of poetry chosen as finalists for the Pulitzer Prize, Good Woman: Poems and a Memoir, 1969-1980 (1987) and Next: New Poems (1987). Her collection Two-Headed Woman (1980) was also … Continue reading ✨✍🏾Today’s Poet ~ Lucille Clifton✍🏾✨ #FebruaryIsBlackHistoryMonth

💔Many are broken💔 We need to remember that we all go through things in life. I’m not a religious individual. However, if LOVE were a religion? Then I’m a LOVER. The broken? They’re ME, YOU, US, THEM…WE. We cannot keep throwing people away. They need help as much as anyone else & sometimes even more so.   I grew up in Brooklyn, NY. Born sickly, was severely abused by almost everyone I came across in my childhood, teenage years & adulthood; from the cradle to the classroom, literally. I was always angry and in pain, physically & emotionally. I was … Continue reading ✨🌹Powerful Video🌹✨

✨🌹FORGIVE YOURSELF 1st🌹✨

🦉Wise Advice🦉… “Letting go of the pain isn’t always an easy thing to do. Many of us can get stuck on that proverbial hamster-wheel in hell! I suggest taking it one step at a time. But the overall goal is to let go of what was & cannot be undone. Instead? Learn, be loving & positive towards yourself; life & others. Change the Negative programming & you change the World. It all starts with SELF.” ~Maxwanette A Poetess “Namastè & One Love”❤️💛💚 Continue reading ✨🌹FORGIVE YOURSELF 1st🌹✨

“WOMEN!!!” “We are your Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Grandmothers, Wives, Cousins, Fiancés, Girlfriends & Daughters. We bring forth & nurture LIFE & LOVE. We deserve to be treated better & decently.

✨🌹Domestic Violence Is Real🌹✨

“I support many causes. Domestic Violence (DV), is one of the most important ones. I grew up watching my father, beating my Mother. My Mother always fought back. By the time I was 3 years old, she had enough & divorced my father. But in our culture (Jamaican), beating & abusing Women was the norm. Sadly it’s still in full practice & many fail to see or care to the lives taken, damages done to Women & Children. It can last a lifetime. This did however have an affect on me. I was never physically abused by any man. Instead … Continue reading ✨🌹Domestic Violence Is Real🌹✨
