Every poem in my soon-to-be-published Moody Woman anthology reflects the particular mood I was in when I composed each one. In this collection of poetry, I poetically describe my romantic, melancholy, humorous, mysterious, spiritual, peaceful, cheerful, and chaotic moods as though they are natural. In other words, my poetry is being used to express my “inside weather” – my mood swings. Therefore, every poem in this collection most definitely is my way of rejecting the widely accepted notion that moodiness is an unhealthy pathological condition.
So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure …
Christ loves me, and I love Him. That is why, for me, staying strong and loyal to my Lord is my only option.

This second anniversary of Ade’s death is very significant. Thanks to Father God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit, I have done something, which on May 2, 2017, I didn’t think it would have ever been possible. I have survived two whole years without my oldest son, who was and still is someone as enormously important to me as life itself.
On April 30th, I will forever be reminded that this day in 2017 was the last time
Ade enjoyed his birthday in the land of the living. Additionally, I will forever be
reminded that the one flower I would love to see in full bloom in May—my son,
Ade—was instead plucked from the garden of life on May 2nd.
Profound truth that is hard-hitting to most people, believers in Christ included, often isn’t readily accepted; that is because insightful, uncomfortable truths expose who people are—hypocrites. It’s amazing how that exposure can be achieved in just three lines.
Fantasists are dreamers who create fantasies. Divorced individuals often fantasize about their marriages. Some divorced people who are poets often write about their fantasies in their poetry. They write about fantasies that can be realistic, unrealistic, or doubtful possibilities.
The Black is Beautiful movement is about more than symbols of power and beauty—about more than African-Americans’ diverse complexions, facial features, hairstyles, and cultural consciousness in a multi-cultural society. Black is Beautiful, as a concept, is about how being beautiful is natural to African-Americans’ souls.
Sometimes moodiness is normal behavior. For sure, not all mood swings mean someone has bipolar disorder. If there is always something going on that can account for a person’s shifting mood, then it is likely that he or she doesn’t have bipolar.
