“Be An Eagle”
Written by Salkis Re

Your identity is yours to create, especially if no one wants to claim you. That’s the fate of copper skin tones who are born on Northern soil.
Maybe you are pretending not to know, but your mirror tell NO lies.


Ask your blood to whisper its secrets in your ear. Let the Sequoia trees secrete the tales of those who burned fires and sang songs under the shade of its leaves.
Heal your heart and your confusion by creating your own legends and hero’s.
What are you?
Who are you?


If you still do not know, then declare yourself an Eagle.
The Eagle NEVER asks what it is. It doesn’t cut through the clouds wondering if it is good enough to fly. She doesn’t perch upon a tree branch contemplating her worthiness to be there.


The Eagle does not spend its days jealous and fretful over not being able to run like those beautiful Lions are down below. The Eagle is just as it, unaware that there is anything better than being an Eagle..

“Forever Best Friends”
Written by Salkis Re

True friendship is like a flower that grows at the spring of each second season.
For us to share and give each other care,
needs no particular reason.

Her concern for you is shown when she gives you her lollipops,
and you return the favor when she asks you to play another fun game of hopscotch.

And we sip the Kool-Aid and eat sweet things that pop and fizz in our mouths,
And we vow yet again to be friends forevermore, just as we are right now..

Sometimes I like to write my thoughts in poetry form. It helps me perge my emotions in a safe, yet entertaining way.

Hobbies are important for emotional balance, and I feel that it is necessary ,for sanity purposes, to have something you do just for yourself.

Holiday season is upon us now and it’s a somber time for a lot of people.

Tokeep you from slumping down, I suggest you engage in something creative to occupy your mind. An idle mind will always lean towards depression and artificial stimulants for distraction and self pity.

Don’t be that type of woman.

Life is a flash in the pan respective to time, and it will all be over soon enough. In the mean time, color your world with your love. Express yourself in a way that makes your heart flutter. Whatever it is that gets your juices flowing, do exactly that.

Me?

Well I like old things.

Antebellum homes and rustic scenes.

I like anything “yesterday”, anything with that retro feel. Like Loud wall paper patterns and plastic couch covers.

I wish my body could still handle sugar cause I sure would love a tall glass of that strawberry flavored Nestle Quick right now!

I miss Double Dutch and Red Light-Green- Light-123.

That’s my cozy place.

I just abhor modern.

I love the smell of old books too.

Find your peace.

Find your type of solace or excitement..

Peace and Love

Shadow Boxing, But You Can’t Win

I don’t thinking arguing is effective to get one’s point across. Though I do get my panties in a bunch when I hear someone trying to indoctrinate me with their foolery, I have been exercising great care in responding emotionally to every shit stirrer that crosses my path. I have to say I feel more empowered by my silence than in any illusionary win I could have created with my foot stomping banter. I don’t think I’m physically designed for that anyway. I’m one of those that loses her voice after a view minutes irateness, so I guess I was born to keep the peace. So my advice to you ladies is exert your energy where it can be utilized in the most beneficial way possible.

And I want you to understand that people do the things they do because they want to, you can’t guilt someone into changing their character. That my darlings is something I would tell my younger self if I could. I thought my pleas could change hearts, but it halted offenses long enough for your guard to diminish, and then the offense was committed again. Now, I am not saying that you shouldn’t address the ills that affect your life, you most certainly need to be on record so no one can throw the ignorance card in your face. But should you find yourself repetitive in the beseechment of his mercy and good doings, then you have an issue in that person that was probably created shortly after he was weaned from his mother’s breast.

Find a way to cope or cut your loses and move on. Think your moves through, twist them, reorder them, picture possible results, and if your ok with what could potentially happen then move on it and let the chips fall. Time and your body are the two priceless things you have,and one of them in nonrenewable and the other has an expiration date. Live your life… It’s Yours….
