S.A.M. (Guest Post)

It is finally December! This is my favorite time of year. I LOVE December. Between the birth of our Savior, family, Christmas lights/music/decorations, and my birthday, it all fills me with such joy and hope and most importantly, gratitude. I made it through another year. I’m grateful for all my achievements and my failures. I’m awed by the new people who entered my life and I’m heartened by those who exited because if they were meant for me, they would still be around.  I am at peace during this time of year. With so few days left, no time remains to rush and attempt to accomplish something you didn’t in the past 330 or days. Now is the time to be still and enjoy what did occur, where I am right now, and fill myself with excitement about what blessings God will bestow next year.

Today’s post is brought to you by some #blackgirlmagic, someone who I am very grateful to have in my circle. Please enjoy her beautiful pieces she has graciously allowed me to share with you today and since I know (👀)  you visit my site because this is a place of empowerment and strength and sisterhood, you will leave love and a comment.

Oh you think I ain’t ever heard that shit before
This SAM
We’re both lucky it doesn’t do what it use to
Spare feelings
Go into it with ease
Exercise tact
I used to think I wasn’t built like that
This SAM
You know how some think it’s cute to say
Aye yo what that _____ do
Try me with that shit and my rhetoric alone would murk you
My my my
How lucky we both are to not really know what this Smart Ass Mouth can do

I Give
by HB

I give of myself so freely
I don’t know any other way
I’m afraid to let others get close to me
Because I know I’ll give it all away
My heart
My time
My attentive listening ear
That rush of fear that I feel
It’s like nothing ever experienced
I ask myself
Who wouldn’t want to stay here
I mean seriously
Heart on my sleeve
My heart is in my breath
My smile
My laugh
My cry
My touch
Chile’ please
As I write this
My chest wants to explode
But wait I said
My love story is being told
So to you
My love
I Give…
