I Belong To Music, But These Lyrics Are Mine.



Ora Tamir at www.orasart.com
It’s the shape of my eyes, my body and soul, the color of my mind... I belong to music, and these lyrics are mine.
The beat is fast, pounding thrusts from within her chest.
The music it brings to her ears are of that melodic guitar-the unique guitar... with strings made of veins. It plays so loudly, her eardrums become numb to the sound of the beat. Don’t strum too hard, cuz ink will bleed, and when the ink bleeds, her soul excretes and stories of a young gremlin are told.
A girl so keen, she made the rhythms bleed.
Stories of a dark child, the daughter of jazz, rock and hip hop
Stories of how she made their hearts stop, their mouths drop.
Stories round the tick tock she stops the clocks and thoughts pop
Her cryptic mind is the simplest hard knock!
Cliché? I think not, for this delivery is TOO hot.
Should you question someone’s passion? I think not.
Woke up feeling fierce today, but this fire is everyday,
So sit back and listen to the truth she say.
Forget the childhood memories, dark mornings and hate tales.
The liberation? Her verbal exhale.
And the chill in her bones isn’t the effect of those cold lonely nights,
Her fear of the dark is cured by no light. Her fear is beyond the pain and anguish found in the base of her mind, the place making her eloquence a one of a kind.
Her fear of the dark isn’t how pitch black it gets, but not knowing the precise location of that vein. Cuz if the vein don’t bleed, then her soul won’t excrete, and if her soul don’t excrete then you've found her defeat.
But NOBODY is stopping P, so if you're gonna cut those lights off, first you've got to cut me!

Because it’s not just the shape of my eyes, my body and soul, the color of my life you see, I belong to music, and these lyrics are MINE!

To Dream... The Impossible Dream?

"It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve and all bad things are easy to get"  - Confucius 
          It was always this kind of rhetoric that I ignored as it was repeatedly recited to me in attempts to engrave wisdom into a child who had yet to experience life. I was more so trying to figure out the mysterious things. The human-like features of "Papa Dios" (God) and what those powers the elders spoke of entailed drove my curiosity through the roof. While growing up into the woman I am today, I often wondered why I'd spend countless nights wondering about something that was promised to never physically be seen until death came and we had to follow that light, not realizing that faith is something that must grow from within and we must possess inside of us without the need to constantly verify its existence. I then learned to channel and apply that energy towards my des…

#WhinByAnyMeans #Artsy Event Performing "My Dear" (Mind Over Matter) at Mimosa Lounge

First off, I'd love to thank the ENTIRE 
Whin Committee
For introducing me to a new world of performing arts. I have NEVER in my life touched  a stage before, but I feel like after last thursday, it may have been the start to something amazing.  As long as I can openly share my thoughts, strengths, and weaknesses through spoken word with the world, the feeling is prodigious. I'm not going to lie, I was the most nervous I had been since I was in labor almost three years ago. Something interesting happened though. The butterflies suddenly turned into wings that lifted me up into the clouds, into a much higher place. 
I did mess up, a couple of times (oh well.) But overall I think it was a pretty good turn out. 
But this video is dedicated mostly to all my
REAL READERS
the ones who leave me comments, read my poems from DAY 1, and  continue to be the reason why I share my passion for writing which has flourished into a dream to recite 
Spoken Word Poetry. 
I love you all, and her…

Synopsis

In my mind i have a Visual
Of all of my residuals The mess that i have made Love CAN be individual!
I never try to escape it I try to cast no fears And every time I fall again
My soul just drowns in tears.

I wear my claws out on my sleeves So you could See it coming And don't you hide Behind those eyes Or think that you'll be running. I don't relate to evil But the world is far from safe, And til I head back home I need a love I could embrace
One with good intention, One with no expectation. One that results happiness And much consideration. A love so strong it's concrete An abstract work of art, An accident engraved itself Directly in my heart.
My heavy thoughts - apocalyptic They hide inside These thoughts so cryptic It's far from normal, Destiny brought this It's project lovebot, MY synopsis

With Love,

GOT LIQUID SKIN???

HOWDY.

The time has come yet again to stroll down the streets of Inwood, Manhattan.  It's one of those places you can never ignore, and will always find something worth reading about or visiting.
The most important thing about this place for me at least, is that the memories made here growing up will never be forgotten. For instance, when I turned 18 and decided to get my first tattoo.  I had been obsessed with keys for FOREVER. 
Old, vintage looking keys, dungeons and dragon looking keys, all sorts of  crazy old rusty odd looking keys.  They hold a ton of meaning to me, primarily because they serve the purpose of opening doors. But besides that, I had been looking at Miguel's work for quite some time. MIGUEL made that tattoo of my dreams happen for me! 
Miguel
is the owner and tattoo artist at 
Liquid Skin Studio 
Located on

165 Sherman Avenue between 204th Street and Academy Street.

Aside from being one of the most skilled tattoo artists and humbled human beings I know, his sho…
