  4. Alright - Ledisi

    Alright

    this life can make me so confused but it’s alright
    living day by day I feel so used that ain’t right
    I just wanna run and hide
    I don’t have the time to cry it’s alright (it’s alright)

    alright
    many thoughts are running through my head, it’s alright
    wishing to be somewhere else but here, it’s alright
    I can’t wait to see your face
    I need a smile and your embrace, and I’m alright

    alright
    life can bring us through many changes
    just don’t give up
    it’s gonna be alright
    people come and they go
    it’s just the way that it goes

    sometime the rain it makes me sad and it’s alright
    some things in the world make me mad and it’s alright
    in the morning when I see the sun I know I’m not the only one
    its alright

    alright
    wish I had some money to pay my bills
    I can’t even buy that dress on sale but it’s alright
    having money don’t mean a thing
    loving you is everything
    I’m alright

    (life can bring us through many changes
    just don’t give up
    it’s gonna be alright
    people come and they go
    that’s just the way that it goes)

    everything is everything
    it’s alright

  9. Introducing: The Self I have yet to know

    I got home from work last night, warmed up some food and went to my room. I wanted to watch something or listen to music but I had no idea what. I’m in this phase of transition. Its a strange place to be because it feels like limbo. I’m not interested or driven by anything in particular. I no longer listen to the radio, I don’t watch tv, and I have know idea of what’s popular. I’m fully aware of the “underground” and more “conscious” world of music and entertainment; however, nothing is sparking my interest at this moment. I feel like am an entirely blank slate. I honestly say I don’t know who my favorite artist is. That’s big because music is very important to me. I’ve completely transitioned out of my teenage and almost-adult years of having interests that were influenced by what my friends like or what I wanted people to perceive me as. I’m a twenty-something, and I’m looking to form an entirely authentic personality, comprised of opinions and preferences that are my own.

    I’m finding that the way to truly get to know me is to spend time with myself. I have an urge to read, write,  to learn how to play an instrument, speak a language, draw and paint. I think I want to spend time creating my own art and music. I want to explore who I am inside. By doing this I think I will be able to figure out what my “flavor” or unique approach is. Perhaps then I’ll be able to find things in the external world; musical genres, books, movies, that fit who I am internally. I think its time to introduce the self I have yet to know.

    i’m always seeing these girls with these beautiful ass breast and girls with this smooth skin and girls with these different colored eyes. and girls whose curls are always so perfect… along with their brows…

    fuck that.

    here’s to the girls that can’t master a twistout just yet. the girls with oily skin. and pimples here and there. girls with two week overdue brow appointments. the average girl who despite her disability still tries to feel beautiful. 

    word.

  12. Embracing diversity

    naturee-feels:

    Your not any less of a black girl if you don’t have a booty.

    Your not any less of a black girl if you can’t dance.

    Your not any less of a black girl if you don’t have any curves.

    I find a lot of black girls feeling complacent if they do not have these certain attributes, that almost seem synonyms to Black Women. Your blackness is not and should not be defined by this.

    I also see a lot of people, black or non black, who help perpetrate these stereotypes and it needs to end.

    this is my life btw
