My latest piece was inspired by the works of Maya Angelou, may her Spirit continue to inspire my soul.

Honey Chile, Honey Chile
come sit here,
rub moma’s feet
for a while.

Let ya moma tell you
bout the days
moma went butt wild;

Wild and free
like the burning passion
of the wind.
I wanted to soar,
I yearned to sin.

A young Spirit I was,
vibrant and alive,
I wanted to soar
as high as the sky.

I never thought
about what growing old
would be,
there was so much to life
I wanted to see.

I never thought about
these old feet gettin tired,
I never thought this old broad
would retire.

Honey Chile, Honey Chile
ya moma’s feet have gotten tired;
come rub moma’s feet,
moma’s gonna rest a while.
