#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 here is



My Dear,

In a world with no discretion
you can die or live and accept.
While so many will cease to see this
they will only live to expect
with a hopelessness so perplexed.
I demand their loss of regrets.
So I bring some lines
just to soothe your minds
or to lead a world to reflect.

With respect,

I paint my stories
to uncover minds.
I wish to rid them of the morbid thoughts
devouring mankind.
If they pay me no mind
I still wish them the very best
while they discard this baffling logic
and substance within my chest.

But for the rest,

Don't wait for change.
Lets work
to attract the kind
attempting conquers of a world
that puts matter right over mind.
Why impulsively incline
in emotions so undefined
like this "love" that we label "cold"
manifested by all the blind?

And I do this from the heart
but I worry it's far too late.
See this here differentiates
so imposters just don't relate.
My mission: recreate,
spawn my faith in every face
for proclamation of success
that kill a hater in it's trace

because

They do it for the implement
that they want hate to spread.
I do this for the hearts and souls
with too much on their heads.
I wish to help emancipate this cryptic education
the kind that shall engrave itself in every generation!

So do you,
there is need for knowledge.
Do you for some power.
I'll do me fo the future
so my thoughts they shall devour

and when I speak,
I pray my rhymes form lines of little seeds
then I'll water them with my soul
and grow indestructible trees!
Don't ask me, I feel the need.
I'm just taking care of some deeds.
At least I smile because MY dreams
are deshackled and finally freed

Because all I'll ever need
is my lyrical exhale.
Even the slightest turn in fate
such as failure just won't prevail
and shall I ever fail
to pay homage to any fact,
here's to mutilation of guilt
so my darkness stays in the past.

Don't EVER wear a mask
or succumb to negative peers
that live off of the satisfaction
of pain that will not adhere
and wipe your tear
so that they don't confuse it with fear.
Say
"this is just another life reflecting moment, my dear."

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…

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,

P.

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…
