When will Leo get an Oscar?
Just saying, y’all been robbing this man for years.
Today was a great Sunday! Brunch & drinks for my second date with this awesome guy who I only met a week and a half ago :). Then cooked some bomb turkey burgers topped with a pomegranate molasses & ketchup mixture, avocado smashed with lime, monterey jack cheese, alfalfa sprouts, and tomato accompanied with seasoned sweet potato fries (oven baked!). Watched the Oscars with my mom; I love that Ellen hosted it, but I still need to know why the eff Leo hasn’t won an oscar yet?! Ugh hopefully next year. We decided to watch Dallas Buyers Club which was PHENOMENAL. If you haven’t seen it already, watch it! The acting and on screen chemistry is amazing to say the least.
It’s kinda late but I’m not tired. I think I’m gonna spend the rest of my night reading, writing, and reflecting.
queens don’t need water
blooming flowers in the dark
I’ve always been forced to grow with no help
figuring everything out
by blindly feeling how to fit into
the right grooves
into notches that I didn’t match
somewhere along the line
I lost myself
in problems that don’t exist
anywhere but in my head
I am enough to grow without light
to bend and adjust
to fill my veins with chlorophyll
and be whole
without ever having had all the parts.
I need to start writing poems again
