the poem you Should have read

Coffee is Rich brown, fit for the grind, sound
of feet beating the pavement, the feet of hearts with dreams.

We know not of life's beautiful plans,
when it burns us while crossing like hot sand.
We cross on and fill the cup fair,
coffee needs a cream oh a blissful pair.

Together through any additions an adversities.

It's crazy how quickly the cup teetered with strife,
time to re-pour with respect showing the world our light.
Destroy any spoil, release any pain,
mistakes don't negate how love remains.
Over-comers we are, over struggle we'll rise
on a journey where together we'd laugh and together we'd cry. 

Can this pair mix, take a chance again sound,
to create the most magnificent swirls of the most profound.
Blessed with a father’s spoon, only something the Lord can ration,  
your honey dippin energy fuzed with my lightning’s of chocolate passion.

For this new coffee can pour their light on the world,
Cherishing each moment to do His will.
The sunshine is back, full song only for your girl,
Focus not on the past allowing peace to be still.

Coffee’s wonders if cream will recover from spoil at all,
and Join the refreshing of a new beginning at last,
Complete the swirl not letting fear be the soil and fall,
Saying my want of our love outweighs fear so we'll never look back.

The Cream in my Coffee.

4 More Years!

This country has been blessed to be lead again by an amazing, sincere, phenomenal man. 
My President, Barack Obama. 
I thank God for this victory and I am excited for the journey and the progression the country will take and make for the next four years. My school, Howard University, held a viewing party at our student center, Blackburn Center. The turn out was more than expected and the enthusiasm was through the roof. Reporters came from a number of different television stations to document the event. Students at my university are educated on the issues, voted, and were honored to be apart of such a historic moment. This is a part of history we will tell our children about and share moment by moment stories with. My friends and I (along with my entire school and people from all over the DMV area) traveled to the white house to celebrate. Living in DC during a time like this is nothing short of amazing. People were yelling and chanting in the streets, honking, hanging outside their car and apartment windows saying, 'FOUR MORE YEARS!' Last night everyone was unified in the fact that we didn't let Romney hold us back. My favorite chant of the night was exactly that, which is play off of Rick Ross's song 'Hold me back' : "Romney can't hold us back!". I pray for Barack Obama and his families safety and I look FORWARD to inauguration in January. I had an amazing time and it was a night I will never forget. This is life. This is our new AMERICA!
