I had enough, I had to leave. I needed to break free from living in the shadows. The life of comparison to what I was not had gotten to much for me to handle.

I was done.

I plotted.

I planned.

I escaped.

For once in my life I felt free to live my life and not the one others thought I should live. The question was; were would I go? What would I do? Who was I really?

I plotted.

I planned.

I escaped.

The funny thing was I ended up in someone else’s story. The story they wrote for me at the time. I was trying to always be what “they” wanted me to be but inside I longed to be free.

Decades later in front of a screen, I chose to stop running, stop plotting my escape.

I chose to be me in the here and now.

Much love,

Black Mama


I absolutely love putting it in writing! When I write I release a part of me that was hidden from the world. For years I would only write to help me navigate through this thing called life, however, writing has become my closest friend. I am a self-published author with a desire to help people know there is always HOPE. Hope for a better tomorrow, hope to live another day, and HOPE TO KNOW LIFE DOES GET BETTER. To my readers, I say "Live FREE and Die WELL" (Quote from the Rock in the movie Scorpion King~lol). Hope is always found in letting go.
