You're Not Welcomed

Wave of emotions

Flood my being

I can only imagine

The door being closed in my face

I have no place to go

Ripped from my family's grasps

No warning

Waiting on the other side is my freedom

You're not welcomed here is what the sign reads

A melting pot?

The land of the free?

Innocent not doing anything wrong

You have helped make America great

Your only sin is what you believe in

It could have been me

The feeling of traveling abroad and coming home

To be turned away

Or you are coming to see a sick loved one

I am sorry but you're not welcomed

I watched as the elderly man wept

His tears ran down his cheek and he said I am a good person


We stand with him in solidarity and can't explain

The only thing we can all do now is pray

Pray for the families separated

Pray for peace

Pray for they know not what they do!!!

Back in the saddle again

Welcome back !!!

It's a new year and people are making promises to do things differently

Going to the gym, eating healthier and turning over a new leaf

Also what we have stayed low key about is how many people are afraid what this new year is going to bring

There is a new leadership, new agendas, and people are scared that they won't be heard.

So for those of us over fifty years old let's get back to basics!!!

For those who are faith based get back into your relationship with your prayer life

For those who want to start their own business start asking those who you admire to mentor you

For those are angry because of the situation remember the mind is a powerful tool that no one can take

from you .

Stop and get back in the saddle again there is a wealth of resources in front of you.

We as a people we need to come together and help each other and not divide

If I have a wealth of knowledge on a subject and someone was to ask me for advice I would gladly share it

I think we are going to see alot more home entertainment, potlucks, co-ops, rent parties

Women are powerful because we have the talent to nurture others, multi-tasks and run two businesses at the

same time ( our homes and other we get a check from).

Think like our parents who went through so much worse and how they overcame obstacles

So yes take care of your mind, body and soul!

Get that old school mentality where you thought out your strategy of how you will not be defeated but how

you will get back in the saddle again and you win!!!
