My Music, My Life

Music has always been a part of my life. Growing up in a church where my grandfather was the founder and pastor, my aunts, cousins and sister were singers and my late father who played the organ, I had no choice but to embrace music.My father taught a lot of people how to play the keys like my older sisters and brothers. Unfortunately, he passed when I was five months old so never got to hear him play growing up. But how ironic is it that two of my good friends learned how to sing and play the keys from their late mentor, who was taught by my father, Small world, right?

I remember the first time I knew I had some singing skills…I was like nine, ten years old. I would run this same cassette tape – Voices “Yeah Yeah Yeah”. I knew I drove my brothers and sisters crazy! Lol, I even wrote a song called, “No,No,No”. That was the 1st of many songs, poetry and short stories that were to come.

It wasn’t until about 2 years later that I let my friends hear my skills. I was roller-skating with two of my good friends Tamika & Ta-Sheeba and we started singing “Weak” by SWV (Sisters With Voices). Ever since then it was has been nothing but music, music and music.

All throughout Junior High School and High School, I was a part of choirs,  singing groups, and plays. You name it, I’ve done it, including an audition video for Apollo Amateur Night with my friends in the 5th grade. (Real Love – Mary J.)

I was also in a gospel group that just recently disbanded. One of the songs we had (my fav- Total Praise), is attached to this entry. (I’m leading the chorus….) . Even though things didn’t go the way we wanted them to go in the group, it was still a part of my life and I actually still have a connection to the songs….

Though I don’t write songs like I used to, I still sing with my church’s choir, and 2 community choirs.  Music will always be a part of my life and when I have children I will definitely share my love for music with them and hopefully it will be a part of their lives too.

Bin Of Memories (Part 1)

While looking through my bin full of my old writing notebooks, I started looking though one of the books. I remember this book the most because it was 2001 and I just moved back from Virginia. I wasn’t quite sure what my next move would be, so I began writing my thoughts and other random things in this book.  I came across a poem I wrote about someone I was dating. To this day this person is a very close friend of mines. I don’t know why this poem stuck out the most when I was looking through the book but I’ve always liked it and so did most of my friends…..I think I got skills lol. So enjoy because this is one of many…..

Sweet Sensation

The way you look at me

The way you hold me

The way you whisper in my ear

The way you tell me how much you love me

The way you show me how much you care

The way we talk on the phone

The way we cuddle when you and I are alone

The way you make me feel

The way our love seems so unreal

The way you wrap your arms around my shoulders

The way I put my head on yours

The way you rub my body

The way I yearn for more

The way you invade my thoughts

The way I want for you to invade me

The way my inner thighs tingle

The way I want you physically

The way I dream about

The way it will be

The touch, the feel, the Sweet Sensation of you inside of me

The smell of your scent

The smell of mine

The smell of our scents together as they intertwine

Our moaning, our panting, our love making, so tender

Passion too good to be true

A dream I want to remember

I can’t wait for the day

That I get to experience you

The way I want to make it known

That I want this dream to come true
