You all know I love music! If you’re new to me, well you’ve learned something new about me. I write poetry but I also write music. So here’s a little DJ/Selecta mix I did remixing […]

(Under the menu tab), you’ll notice I’m a Yanksta.
So it only makes sense that I enjoy Reggae to some degree.
Even though I’m a music junkie and love all genres of music, there’s something I truly enjoy about my era of Reggae & Dancehall, and that was the Riddims. Yes, the Riddims.

OK, so I know I wasn’t the only person in the world whose facial expression was like this emoji when this picture below of Spice was presented. I think anyone who seen this picture, felt the same way I did:

Freedom… It’s hard growing up in a world where people judge you by looks and stereotype you. A world where beauty is depicted by covers of magazines.

Everybody was made differently, and that’s why LOVING yourself as you are is BEAUTIFUL. That’s freedom! Freedom of loving myself as I am and not having to conform to society’s definition of “beautiful”.
