BUSBOYS AND POETS BROOKLAND
Randi: Do you do spoken word, are you into poetry?
Me: (dressed in all black head to toe, giving all of goth winged eyeliner with matte black lipstick)
Yes…yes, I do…why did you think to ask me that, is it how I’m dressed?
Randi: No…, it wasn’t that at all, it’s your energy.
I have been telling myself and a few select others that I have poetry written that I want to perform Open Mic style.
This is what happens when you speak into the Universe...
This was the invitation to the fulfillment of my dream to perform my poetry before a live audience and accept my gift as a poetress. It was like Randi had a meeting with the universe and said, today is the day for Lakesha Lee to walk into her destiny, to receive what it is she asks for. Lets see if she answers the call...I did. Randi, (Randi Gloss of Gloss Rags and Counting Tees) told me about her upcoming event, Letters to our Lost Blood, a commemorative poetry performance. I gladly accepted the invitation and was overwhelmed by feelings of “o shoot, this is really about to happen”. I am walking in the path of my destiny and following the path to my dreams, my dreams…doing the things I want to do. I’ve been writing lyrics, poetry since I was 15.
My motivational speeches are in written and performed in poetic form and I’ve recently written a speech in book form (so foreal I wrote a book)…I’m not new to this im true to this. However, you know that awesome thing you do really well, but don’t claim it, or share it, or label it as other or say...
etc...etc…or maybe it’s just me?
No, I know I’m not alone because I’ve heard it so many times from other people saying they do this or that but "not really." IAM WAAAY over the “not really” phase, it don’t do nothing but HOLD YOU BACK!!! Be clear about who you are and what you do. Do this and the universe will present you with opportunity. Just make sure your ready when you get the call…and if your not ready, get ready, get moving, get active…do that thing that you “really do” until you do it really well.
NOW...WATCH ME PERFORM DEAR RENISHA!!!
