🌹✍🏾NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU!!!✍🏾🌹

🍾🎉It’s official. P.L.O.T.S. is now legally licensed & open for business, TODAY!!!🎉🍾

I can’t tell you, how much this means. Today, started off, filled with pain and weariness. Everything that could go wrong? Lol, yeah, it went wrong. But a voice deep within said, “Max? How bad do you want it?” So, I pushed through the pain, limping and all, and got this done!

I’m an official business owner! Feels gotdayum good too, lol!!! I’ve accomplished a lot here in Georgia & I’m not done yet, lol! I’ve only just begun to shine.

So now I get to charge a fee for my services. The Most High, The Ancestors, & My Mommy keep blessing me. I thank them profusely, my Sister Denise, my Nephew Dominique, my Cousin Roger, my Sister Shelly, and all the supporters & those who gave words of encouragement. Because through all that went wrong today? So much went right. Opportunities just started flying off the walls. Yeah, I’m blessed.

Don’t you guys EVER! Give up on yourselves.  You have to be your own best friend,  cheering section & hype team. Find people who will stick beside you & share your passion for accomplishment. And like I said…

“IN THIS LIFE & OR THE NEXT, I AM UNDEFEATABLE!!!”

🌹✍🏾It May Not Be Easy, But You’re Not Alone✍🏾🌹

Many of us have gone through or are going through so much in this life. Now, I am not a religious individual, so I follow no religion. However, I am a spiritual individual & have trust in the power of The Most High, Our Ancestors, & within Self

So much abuse – child abuse/elder abuse/ domestic abuse/self abuse/animal abuse, pain, loss of life & loved ones, sacrifices, mistreatment, unfairness, ailments – physical & mental, poverty – losing your job/not having a job, homeless – right now some are reading this and are without a decent place to sleep, hunger – many reading barely have enough to eat or wondering where the food is going to come from & even praying for another Stimulus Check, illiterate – yes not knowing how to read & comprehend is a silent hell for many, racism, injustice, hatred of self & by others, lonely – no special someone or even surrounded by others but still alone, crime, looking back on the past, while hating your now & dreading your existence day-by-day, not to mention the losses & fears of COVID-19, the list can go on & on and we end up wallowing in the pit of chaos.

I have no magic answers. But what I can say is, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I love all of you. Yes, even though I don’t know most of you personally, lol! So what? So, I have to know you, to have love & compassion for you? No! As human beings, it’s the right thing to do, to have love for your Brothers & Sisters, as we are each others keepers. What we need? People who can listen when you feel the need to vent or cry. People who aren’t scared to say “I’ve been there & I’m sorry you’re suffering.” People who can reach out & simply offer a hug, phone-call, text, or video chat. Maybe you can even share a meal or clothing with someone less fortunate. They don’t even have to know it’s you. I’ve dropped food & money on a families doorstep without them even knowing. I don’t have much, but I share what I can. And if you’re religious? Then keep up your prayers, while trying to physically help someone, don’t just sit there praying all day & waiting for a miracle. Someone can use your help, somewhere, trust me.

We’re on Facebook, sometimes daily or all day. But do we really know the struggles that people are going through? Do we care? Do we even ask?…

Yes, we all have lives, but remember we’re not living in this world alone. There are many on here, who contact me & we chat. Not because of anything, except to have a listening ear. I’ve met some amazing Souls here too by the way. So, my point is, take a moment to ask people if they’re okay. It could mean the world to someone & change a life.

If anyone needs a friend to talk to? I may not do the phone & video thing, but I’ll text you to death, lol! But hit me up on Facebook Messenger, send me an email; maxapoetess@yahoo.com, DM (direct message) me on Instagram – poetrylanguageofthesoul, or on Twitter -@maxwanette, I read ALL my messages. Give me a moment, but I’ll get to each one.

Why isn’t the government concerned & give these officers the death penalty or at the very least, life? If you’re not troubled by this?
Then you’ve lost your humanity.

🌹✍🏾”How Was Your Weekend?”✍🏾🌹

“I had the pleasure of welcoming a Great-Nephew over the weekend – one of my Nephew’s 1st child & Son, talking with my Stepmother, chatted with my baby Sister, I talk with my oldest Sister EVERYDAY- poor ting 😅, tried to play Fort Night with another Nephew – Okay I lied. I gave it zero effort. I don’t like video games🤷🏾‍♀️. But I had fun watching my Nephews enthusiasm (he’s 12), I had to speak with my Bestie whose more like a Sister to me, avoided unnecessary negativity – seemed to be coming from the oddest directions, but I refused to feed into it’s directional existence, lol! So it was disbanded & demolished, I spoke to quite a bit of Family this weekend, even online. This past weekend was indeed lovingly AWESOME.” 🥰 ~Maxwanette A Poetess

🌹✍🏾”Don’t Let What’s On The Outside, Control Your Inner Peace.”✍🏾🌹

🌹✍🏾This post resonated with me DEEPLY. I had a horrific experience this past week that hit me so hard, I didn’t know how to respond. It wasn’t a shocker, just a harsh reality & confirmation. It numbed me to the point that I couldn’t even shed a tear. All I could do was feel, think, review, process, and BREATHE.

What surprised me even more, was that I haven’t gotten angry. Disgusted? Yes, but anger hasn’t entered my being. For that I am glad. Instead, I feel sad for the individual that tried their best to destroy my essence of self, for they’re stuck in a deep well of self-hatred, loneliness & misery.

As for me? I’m continuing on my journey, loving myself and others even more and embracing the beauty of my existence. Life Is Beautiful & I’m loving every second of it!✍🏾🌹~Maxwanette A Poetess

🌹✍🏾When A Post Touches You So Much, You Have To Share✍🏾🌹

I felt this post deeply & had to share – Because we all have a story…

I can fully relate to this post. My own relationship with my children suffered to this day. They always saw me as strong. So when I fell (nervous breakdown), they were lost. They’ve resented and hated me for it ever since. They never knew the internal hell from years of abuse & suffering that I was battling. I learned to love them from afar. It was and is difficult at times, but I also know that I can’t fix everything. I did the best I could, with who I was at the time.

I’m glad that today I’m a much better and healthier minded individual, who finally learned how to love herself and help others do the same. It’s from my own pains & sufferings that enable me to overstand the heart & minds of others. It’s one of the main purposes for my social media pages & blog. Reminding myself & others to love themselves through the madness. Give yourself a hug, because you deserve it.

✨🌹Powerful Video🌹✨

💔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 dubbed by a close family member with the name, “Mad-Max.” I was hurting, angry, lost, became detached from life in many ways & at an early age, I became a mother (I was 16 & he was 34 – happens when you’re homeless & your parents didn’t break the cycle either)and suffered greatly. I loved my children but only partially. I didn’t know how to love them past being a provider & disciplining then. People gave up on me & it took a large majority of my life, trying to figure things out. My life was my own personal hell, filled with walls & no way out. But somewhere deep within was the real ME. The ME that was connected to a Soul so deep, that poetry was the only hidden voice that I had. I wrote poems at times, simply to hold onto my sanity & humanity.

 

See, when I was growing up, kids like me? They usually didn’t last long. They were killed, stuck in abusive situations, became criminals, became abusers, committed suicide, went stark raving mad (oh I lost it a few times), were bitter or simply fucked-up, one way or another. I was in my own personal hell for what seemed like a never-ending nightmare. There wasn’t anyone that loved me. I also was clueless as to how to love myself. People were afraid of me & I became afraid of myself as I sunk deeper & deeper into my own dark chaos. I was labeled a monster by my abusers, strangers, family & so called friends. There were times when being a monster was the only respect & fear that was attached to me. I was fortunate to not be a criminal. Reading at a High School level by the time I was 3, was my only outlet. I immersed myself in reading EVERYTHING.

 

I made many mistakes but I learned. I wasn’t able to be there for my children in the way I wished I could’ve been. But once I figured it out? It’s been part of my life’s purpose to help others & especially those that life/humanity has forgotten, the labeled “Underdogs”, “Monsters”, “The Less Than”, poor and underprivileged, anyone who’s suffering & need a “port in the storm.” I can’t save & help everyone, but I do what I am able. I’ve also learned how to not waste my energies. Once I am satisfied that I’ve done all that I can, I’ve learned to keep it moving. Because you can drown in a flood while trying to rescue people. I’ve drowned a few times, lol! I just refuse to give up😌. It does take a toll, but I never regret helping others. It’s one of the things that make me happy.🥰

 

People wonder how I can be so loving, share positivity & love…Lol, trust me, it’s better to exist in this space than the one that I was in before. Every chance that I get to show someone Love, is a beautiful thing. Anytime someone remembers how to love themselves & share that? Absolutely PRICELESS. That’s how we change things.

 

But we have to see that we all live here. Why not make or contribute in making life a better thing to experience? A kind word, helping someone, asking someone if they’re okay, checking on your neighbors, smiling at people, heck! Don’t forget to smile at yourself, feed or clothe those in need, stop being able to send a text to a stranger but if you see abuse & suffering right under your nose you walk by, give that homeless person a blanket, food & make inquiries as to why they’re out in the cold, ask a child or adult if they’ve eaten, don’t try to change anyone try to help, STOP MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS, because if we all cared a bit more, what a world this would be. Yes, people trying to help get hurt and have even lost their lives. The irony? Those who fear this, would be awed that if those who helped had to do it all again? They would. Think about that.

 

This video touched my heart because often no one ever gives a shit about the abuser or the criminal. Although this is overstood, they weren’t born destroying lives & themselves. Something happened, whether we know it or not. It takes a different type of human being to do what they do at “Homeboy Industries.”

 

One person matters, because one by one, like drops of water forming the oceans, we’re uniquely created & even stronger together.

“DEAL WITH LIFE – THEN RELAX & REFOCUS”

 

“When I need to relax, meditate, & simply level di vibes.” 

Oh, I yell & scream sometimes too, lol!

~Maxwanette A Poetess ❤️💛💚

 

Life is what it is. Negative, Positive, One Or the Other, or All of the Above. Finding ways to unwind, regroup, “de-stress”, refocus, & recharge is vital to our overall state of BEING. So in other words…

 

Vent, Let Shit Go – Yes, sometimes this includes people; Energy Vampires – Anyone or Anything that makes you feel less than, draining, ill even in thought, robbing you of Joy & Happiness, is overall just not good for or to you. These types of individuals will rob you of your life’s Essence. LET THEM GO! They can only harm you as they cannot help themselves. Find Healthy, Therapeutic, & Beneficial ways to GET THAT TOXIC MESS OUT!!! I could list many ways (hence, the relaxing wave sounds) that you can try. But do what works for you. If you need a moment of alone time? TAKE IT! Even if it’s just laying down (or sitting), closing your eyes, and let the sounds of the waves relax you right where you are. Stop holding onto those negative vibes. Stretch, release, & remind yourself that YOU COUNT-YOU MATTER-HOLD ON-YOU ARE NOT ALONE-IT WILL GET BETTER. Will It Dammit! Claim it and own it! Don’t continue the destruction of SELF.

 

Deal With Your Shit – Running, hiding, and or avoiding things, will only give you a bigger Shit-Pile, to deal with later. Trust, that you cannot run forever. Finding healthy ways to overstand things, seeing the lessons, separating what is viewed as good/bad, right/wrong, negative/positive is important to the mental & physical well being. We all know that things swept under the rugs, ignored, denied, or even unknown for whatever reasons, can turn around and bite us in the ass, lol! It may cause pain, most times dealing with things as they are, hurts like F#@ %. But are we being honest with our level of expectations? “Facing those Demons are the only way in which to conquer them.” You may need a friend or loved ones, professional help, or if you’re the recluse type (yes, I’m guilty of this myself at times), then find ways to restrengthen yourself, and that will bring you back to your normal. YOU CAN DO IT. Why? Because, it’s those that are alone and or lonely, that have it the hardest. They only have themselves to lean on. So et things in place, to buffer yourself. Because, dealing with things, can “break you before they make you.”

 

FORGIVE – You have to forgive yourself; being in situations that damaged your essence of Self, for blaming yourself for things that were or weren’t your fault, & others. Yes, it’s CORNY, but it’s also REAL. You hold onto that grudge, mistake, wrong-doings, that negative energy, and it will take it’s effect on you, one way or another. Forgiveness is more of a self-healer. It affects people in different ways. You can forgive someone and it doesn’t mean shit to them or anyone else. Or it may be the world of unreleased burdens that someone else is carrying. But mostly? It releases the FORGIVER of that weight on their SOUL.

 

HEAL – Helping others HEALS THE SOUL. That’s just something that works well for all involved. To show someone else love, care, & compassion, especially if you’re feeling blue or in a funk, takes a lot. But it’s so healing that it radiates its overall power. It touches people. I used to have life-sized teddy bears, that I would cry, hug, talk to, & simply relax on. Heck, we even had an argument or two, lol! But, in the privacy of my bedroom, I learned how to HEAL.

 

LOVE – YOURSELF, enables you to love life and others Healthily. Not that crazy stuff people throw around all over the place, cutting, and damaging Souls, at every movement. That not love. That’s that mess that isn’t working, no matter who’s involved. People say, oh it’s “Unhealthy Love” or that “Painful Love”…BULLSHIT! “REAL LOVE DOES NOT HURT.” Well, what about pain and the love in giving birth? NO. See the women love the child. The pain is what it is. It is inevitable, and a sacrifice made. What woman wouldn’t rather a pain-free pregnancy & birth? Well, what about the pain of love caused by death? NO…again. We feel the pain ever so deeply, by the loss of the individual. Our love doesn’t die with them. We cry & mourn because they are no longer alive in the flesh, to share that love in the way in which we’ve become accustomed. We cry if we missed out on expressing and or sharing that love as well. But the LOVE stands true, all on its own.

 

Love is to begin within ourselves. Whether we get it the right or the wrong ways, it starts within that individual. Without love, Humanity will not remain. We all must leave our earthly vessels (bodies) sooner or later. Throughout it all and at the end of this life, Love is what will prevail or the lack of it. Love is the printed code & embroidery in the “Pattern of Life.” It affects us all as simplistically as the very air that we breathe. It carves who we are and who we are not.

 

What’s the Point?… It’s to try & to do better, be better, right where you are, even if it’s for or towards someone else. We live in a World that can surely use more of self-love, the love of others & of life. “Love Heals the World.” If we continue to share this, we will eradicate the need for healing broken, damaged, pained, lost hearts & Souls. IT STARTS WITH SELF.

*”SHARE THE LOVE!”

I saw this post on my Facebook feed & I felt the need to share…

“Share the Love”, It does wonders! The most simplistic of things can alter a person’s life forever.

Pull out a chair for someone, hold open a door, check on an elderly or sick neighbor, offer someone you know a free babysitter night or weekend, offer someone a seat, buy a homeless person a meal or give them a comfy blanket and or change of clothes, when that annoying baby’s crying? Offer a toy, fruit, or even play a game, to distract the child-we we’re all babies too, help people struggling to carry their bags, offer to pay for someone’s purchases; even a dollar or fifty cents, pay for someone’s bus/train fare, volunteer to read to children, elderly, and even become pen pals with strangers, I mean the list can go on forever.

We have to remember that we’re on this planet “TOGETHER.” We can make it a better place to exist for ALL. Simply, “Be the change, you want to see in the world.”

Poet On Tha Mic! – Brief Personal History

119

This is a major goal for me, “Poet On Tha Mic.”

I became a poet, sort of matter-of-factly. Coming from a very abusive background and life, I had no voice or place to express my thoughts, ideas and feelings. I went through consistent traumas. Some were so devastating it made others cry, wince and cringe to hear it. So I kept my life, pain, joys and experiences to myself. As I grew, anger developed and I needed a place to put everything. So I did what I knew how and loved doing the most, partially what I was created to do and that was…”TO WRITE!”

I recited a piece, for a former acquaintance, a year ago. He said, “Max, you should record yourself reading your poems. Your voice & flow needs to be heard.” I tried it and was amazed at how I sounded. Was that me? The last time I recited a poem to an audience was when I was 12 years old at my mother’s poetry recital {at The New Muse in Brooklyn, NY. It no longer exists}. I had suffered from stage fright for as long as I could remember. Could I do this now? Here in 2017?…

I have decided to take another crack at it and practicing. 😉💕🎤
