I'M OVERWHELMED!!!

Image
For the last few weeks, I've been so busy and so focused on everybody else and their problems that I really have had no time for myself here lately.  To be honest it has been very irritating.  Not to mention, that with my living situation, I'm a place to where I really can't have a quiet moment to myself.
  I just feel like I can't get any peace. All I'm working with is a wing and a prayer.  Why is it that way?  I feel like Karen Clark Sheard when she said "I Just Can't Take No More!!!"  OMG!!!!  I'm annoyed passed capacity.
  Today I was resting from a Mary Kay event and I came home to take a nap. In walked dear old relative and he starts nagging me over me coming in late and me resting.  He didn't even know that I had been working on my Mary Kay sales.  He's just going off what he thinks.  It's enough that I'm always the subject of rudeness and other things.
  Nevertheless, I'm going to remain positive. I know that things…

What is Musique's Poetry?

Image
This blog has gotten hundreds even thousands of views. However, whenever I mention "Musique's Poetry"people often ask "who is your blog catering too." I often reply to anybody who is living and needs a breath of fresh air.
  That's what Musique's Poetry is.  It is a breath of fresh air.  I realize that I haven't blogged seriously in like forever, but this is my baby and I refuse to allow people to tell me what I can and cannot write about. I understand that I do have to be mindful due to professional affiliations, but come on people, whatever happened to "Live and Let Live!"  
 I remember when I started blogging on a regular basis. It was back in 2009.  I was a senior in college and I started with Black Male Perspective. Later on, I changed it to Confessions of a Preppy. However, after getting "thehang" of blogging I finally decided on this current title of Musique's Poetry.

Some Days

Right now, I want to be in seclusion. I've come to this conclusion that a few days away will be the right solution. Maybe I need a magic potion, to dissolve all of this  dastardly emotion. However, I brought this on myself with constant worrying and strife. I guess that's life. Some Days I don't want to be bothered. Some Days I just want to fly away. Some Days I want to laugh. Other Days I just want to sleep. Some Days I'm up. Some Days I'm down. Some Days I write. Some Days I sing. Some Days I walk. I Guess that's the life for me.

@CherylPepsii Riley - Let Me Be Me

Image
Cheryl Pepsii Riley has been on of my favorite singers since I was a kid. I can hear her singing "Thanks for My Child" and me smiling because I was a kid. SMILE!!!! Recently I've been listening to her album "Let Me Be Me"and I can truly say that one of my favorite tracks is "Let Me Be Me," which is the title track.
  It describes how after a show someone asks her what did she want most in the world and it was simply "just to be me."  Right now that is how I feel.  Ever since I came into being for real in 2010, a lot of people have been trying to make me fit into what their perception of Bradley should be. I continue to be me despite the remarks, slick at the mouth comments, and open shade thrown.  It doesn't bother me.
  The lyrics simply say:

With my music and movies 
Good food and some real sleep 
Best friends and my family 
Yeah, that gives me peace 

My Chuck Taylor hightops 
My laugh and my Bible 
If you wanna see happy 
Just let me be me
