*Androo’s Art*

I have a few friends that are entrepreneurs. So I had to lend my support! #YouBetterGetYours


“ONE LOVE!” 🇯🇲️ 
So, here’s the story.

I got tired of my big brother showing off his Bob Marley shirt (love you though, lol!).

He wouldn’t give it to me, so I had to get my own, lol!

But it had to be special…

I knew where I had to go, Androo’s Art!

Thanks Andrew! Keep up the great work.

“Namaste & One Love”❤️💛💚


To my big brother (Eton Mccloggan), “My shirt is just as pretty as yours! Nah-Nah-Nah-Nahhh-Nahhh!!! & it’s made by a friend, Lol!!! And yes, if I ever get the opportunity to steal your shirt? I will surely do so. You can’t have too many Bob Marley shirts & it’s what Baby Sisters Do! lol!!!😂

*Recession ~ by Maleek Mayers

This young King reached out to us (Hi Maleek!) and shared his video. He asked to have his video featured on our blog. It’s an honor and pleasure to do so and we thank you for choosing our forum and platform in which to express your art. It’s wonderful seeing the youths keep setting the trend. We at Poetry, Language Of the Soul encourage children, adolescents, and EVERYONE, to try their hand at writing poetry. It’s a beautiful and creative way of expression. Try it, you may shock yourself, lol!

Great job Maleek!

As it envelopes my body,

I feel it, so energizing…

“Find Like~Minders!”

 “Find Like~Minders!”

(people who have similar goals and ways of living, that match your own)

– Pool your resources, Wait, what resources you ask?…Your wages, skills, expenses. Whatever is a source of income, need and even for simple daily living. More simplistically put?…Find others that you not only trust, but get along with and become roomies, to cut high living costs, Pool your incomes (salaries, SNAP Benefits, Social Security, etc.), splitting the bills, will allow for savings.

“But Max, we can’t get along!”(((WHINE-WHINE-WHINE)…I did say to do this with people you trust, love, get along with, and have “LIKE-MINDS.” This will not work with people who aren’t responsible, dependable, trustworthy or on the same page as you are.

By doing this, you form a collective group, with financial backings, which can very well lead to overall empowerment of all involved. This is how things change. From splitting costs, to being able to invest in bettering yourself and others. We sometimes forget, that we’re ALL on this journey together. #Empowerment

“Namastè & One Love” ❤️💛💚
