I don’t party & am busy working & studying. But I wanted to take a moment to say…

“I WISH FOR EVERYONE JOY, HAPPINESS, COMPASSION, STRENGTH, KINDNESS, POSITIVITY, PROSPERITY – NOT JUST MONETARY, KNOWLEDGE OF SELF, BE SAFE, BE WISE, BE LOVE.”

“Be Positive, Be Happy, Be Love…BE!”, by Maxwanette A Poetess

Normally, I share a variety of pictures & quotes for my daily greetings. But this one picture, feels fitting for every social media page, that I have…

So to everyone in the Universe; those that I know, those that I may have wronged, those that may have wronged me, to those that have wronged others, to those that wrong themselves, to the strangers and those that I don’t know or may never know, to those that are loved, and yes, even those deemed unlovable, to those that have found love, to those that have lost it, even those who are clueless to love, and those that abuse it & take it for granted, to those that have forgotten what love really is, just as prayers are said, sent, and felt, all over the world, this message is laced with hugs…

☀️❤🖤💚Happy Kwanzaa❤🖤💚☀️

These are the seven principles of Kwanzaa…

Kwanzaa comes from the Swahili phrase “matunday ya kwanza,” which means “first fruits,”

The holiday was created in 1966 by Maulana Karenga and became popular in the 1980s and 1990s in tandem with the black power movement. The holiday is defined by the seven principals and each day of the festival is dedicated to a specific one, marked by lighting a candle on the kinara, a seven-branched candelabra.

Day 4 & Principle 4

Cooperative economics. Similar to ujima, this principle refers to uplifting your community economically. “To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together,”

“Or self-determination. This principle refers to defining, naming, creating and speaking for oneself.”

“Love The Skin You’re In”
————‐————————–
Dark as the midnight ‘s sky.
Deep, rich, & magnificently formed.
Jealous are the colored hues,
In life’s Crayola box.

Black, Jet-Black, Blueish-Purpleish,
Onyx, Charcoal, Sable, Raven,
Sooty, Ebony, Inky, & Swarthy.
Sun-Kissed, by The Most High!

Your extra beauty & blessings
Wrapped up divinely,
Within your pigmentation.
I stare in glorious awe, at your existence.

Wanting to be near you
Wishing to touch you
Praying for your overload of Melanin,
To taint my, lacking skin.

It is saddening when you reach,
For skin lightening bleach,
As you strive to copy the misery,
Of those who strive to be you…

Never add, any filters,
To throw your Melanin off kilter,
For you are the supreme balance,
Of life.

How beautiful you are,
Shining brighter than the morning star.
You hold the most powerful of purpose,
As the Universe is saturated within your epidermis.

Baby? Love The Skin You’re In.

*Society & the world can be a cruel & warped place. So many are fed to believe that dark skin is a curse. Far from it. It is one of the most beautiful things to behold.
“Know Thyself, Love Thyself, Be Thyself.”

🌹✍🏾”Someone Died Today”, by Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾🌹

Someone Died Today
———————————
I had to take paper & pen
The sorrow, it bothered me,
again & again.

What words would I use?
Honestly, what more could I say?
See, in my building complex?…

Someone died today.

I didn’t know him too well,
just hi’s and byes.
I didn’t like him too much, as he constantly gave
his wife swollen & distorted features, complimented
with black-eyes.

I had stopped telling him hello,
The sight of his wife, mother of his children,
simply made me sigh.

Women stay with these men,
fully laden with children.
Yet you can see, they’re dead inside.

His wife got a shoulder wound,
she came out the best.
He was felled, with 4 bullets to his chest.

Some may ask why?
Well, honestly, he wasn’t a nice guy.
But he was a life, I wonder who cried?

Was this his fate? Because karma is real.
No more beatings…I wonder how she feels?
Police, sirens, ambulance, screeching of wheels…

I took pen to paper,
for I simply had to say,
Right where I live? Someone died today.

*I tried not to think about it, but it was difficult. So as a Poetess should, I put it in prose.

❤💛💚Today’s Message, by Maxwanette A Poetess❤💛💚

☀️”Love Is Everything, Love Is Vital, Love Is Life”☀️

In life, there is ALWAYS, something going on, good, bad, and or the ugly. We have always lived in & through times, that either will make you, break you, or all of the above. No one has a “perfect” life, no matter how wonderful they are. Because we exist in an imperfect world. It is imperative to our survival & betterment as human beings, to dismantle & destroy the distractive diversionary tactics, put in place to impede our elevation in life.

People will do you wrong, do others wrong, and even wrong themselves. Those people are all…US, at one time or another. The point is to learn, do better (not try anymore, be like Nike – “JUST DO IT!”), change, become better people, and help our Brothers & Sisters through life.

Some? Will also choose to remain in their own private Hells…You cannot save them, no matter how much you love them, unless they choose to. They, just like you & I, have to make their own choices in life. You do not stay stuck with them. Love them, but leave them to their choices, or you will drown with them. YOU MUST KEEP MOVING! Because your progression, strength, & love, will help so many others. And life is so gloriously unpredictable, that you may not be able to save your loved ones personally, but another just might, if we change for the better and spread it like wildfire!

WE CAN CHANGE THE UNIVERSE!!! One-by-One, if we start within Self, “Be, and Be The Change You Want To See In The World.”

“Namastè & One Love”❤💛💚
