Freedom

Comforting and unique, your presence ignites my creativity. I am myself when I’m around you. Handled with your love and wrapped in your sensitivity.

You have become my greatest inspiration. What my life has been missing. Now I’m focused and driven, nothing can break my concentration.

I feel a freedom that’s with me even when you’re not near. A freedom that eases my mind and makes my vision clear. A freedom to break down every wall. A freedom to move forward and conquer all.

She Is

You’re the fresh air I need when my environment becomes polluted with uncertainty.

You’re the sun that shines on the other side of the cloudiness of fear.

You’re the water that causes the leaves to grow on a tree that was barren with hopelessness.

You’re inspiration to be who I’ve only dreamt to be and who I never imaged I can be.

You’re the piece that was missing to a puzzle that’s now and will forever be a beautiful picture.

Welcome to The Brown Sugar Cafe

I enjoy writing because I use words as a way paint a pictures of my thoughts. Sometimes even before the words are written, I get a picture of what I am about to write. Even though each time is different, writing takes me to a familiar and comfortable place.

When it comes to my blog, I always look forward to Wednesdays because it’s a weekly invite to the moments I experience while writing. My readers get a chance to walk through my mind and experience my thoughts about love.

I’m so glad I decided to publish Love Letters because I get a lot of feedback of how people are really enjoying it.

3 What do you consider to be your best feature and why? My smile because I enjoy laughing and smiling…

The Essence of a Woman 

Never have I seen a woman more beautiful.

A woman who wears confidence as if it was designed for her and only her.

It’s in the way she walks.

It’s in the way she speaks.

Her Intelligence dances on her words with the echo of her voice.

As flawless in character as she is in grace.

The sweet smell of her perfume fills the air and remains long after she’s gone. But is it the scent or the memory because she’s made an impression that I can’t deny?

She’s a woman and she is powerful in every way…
