I Get Along Without You Very Well- Nina Simone

One of my favorite poetic songs covered by the beautiful and talented late Nina Simone.


Disappointed (snippet)


You life me high and then you drop me to the ground
You gas me up saying you ‘gon take me outta town
My bags are packed, but you’re nowhere to be found
I can’t stand to be treated like a clown
Is my disappointment your enjoyment?

Quote #12 (Alex Myers)


“I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, ‘because of you, I didn’t give up.'”
– Alex Myers (@Alex_Austin)

Quote #11- George Washington Carver


“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. ” – George Washington Carver

Quote #10- Erma Bombeck


“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.” – Erma Louise Bombeck

Civil War (snippet)


There’s a civil war goin’ on
Between normality and originality.
And I’m stuck in the middle of this slug fest.
One side is safer, but the other is probably best.
I can’t decide who will be my ally and who will be my enemy.
I have to make a choice.
Do I want to be normal or
Do I want to be something I was told I couldn’t be?

Headliner/ Center of My Joy


I be yelling out Jesus over everything/
Jesus on my mind/
Then she wanna she ask why am I so happy/

Tell her I apologize it happened over time/
She said they missed old Shaq/
Girl don’t tempt me…
