Eternal Love

The 6000 year old kiss found in Hasanlu, Iran

Do you believe in the power
Of everlasting love
We can make it if we stay together
Our love is just enough

Promise me this forever
We’ll always stay this way
We can start at the end of time
And do it all again

Oh my love
I’m all yours
And there will never be another one
‘Cause I’m eternally yours
My heart’s a flame
And it’s burning in your name
Even through the sands of time
My love will always grow
And I won’t let go

No matter if you’re near or far
Our bond will never break

Art Curating in Jersey City

missyb allicty

Bringing people together has always been my strong suit, so why not bring my artistic and creative souls together? I was wanting to do an event to finish the year off since I have been a little quiet lately giving myself time to live a little. So, I stopped by my comrade, Cheese’s spot Redemption Art & Music to “shoot the sh!t” as some say. He suggested doing the second edition of All City 1.0 which happened a couple years ago with Dj Bizznice. Since everyone is already in my circle why not continue the legacy, right? Makes sense. So we put it all in motion, collecting amazing talent from New Jersey’s best. The goal was 12 artists but I ended up with 52 pieces of work.

Juan Vasquez helped me with the task of hanging every piece of work, Dj Bizznice was our Dj for the night and the sweets were provided by SugarSupplyJC with her custom pastries. While pouring some mango mimosas and adding the final touches Ms. ChicPea and mini ChicPea came in for a sneak peak before the night started. After a little dance with mini Chicpea we were ready to open the doors.
missyb jaynewest interviewJayne West covered the event for ChicPeaJC with an interview from myself and a couple artists as well. With over 100 people coming by the energy was great! I am glad I chose to collab with Society Needs Culture, Redemption Art & Music, Blow-Out Beauty Lounge because it just made sense. It’s amazing to be surrounded by people who believe in you. I am proud of the artwork presented and look forward to curating another…. Please check out the article!

Love…

hearbrokeHow do you treat your self?
How do you share with others?
How do you show others how you fee?
How do you listen to a friend?
How do you make someone else feel good?
What does it take for you to love?
Do you love yourself?
Really love yourself?

Make sure you take care of yourself
Make sure you take care of your loved ones…
Make sure you take care of the human race…
whether you know them or not!

Don’ suffer and don’t let others suffer.
BE KIND

A little more LOVE

candlelit

Don’t be afraid to take the initiative.
Don’t be afraid to put your heart on the table.
Don’t be afraid to show just how much you love someone.
Not just for your lover but for you mom, dad, mentor, friend…
A dinner or lunch made with love along with words of encouragement.
LOVE
comes in many ways and the world needs a little bit
MORE
so just extend a hand, share your pain, give more hugs
and remember to smile. A smile could be a mood changer.
A gesture could save someones day even a life… so many people
feel they are alone with no options.
Let them know
they are not
alone but we are all in this
TOGETHER!

This is not an act…

warrior women

Everyday is a new day
Each day a war is at bay

And they ask are you okay?

Somedays I feel

Somedays dont seem real

As I carry this sword of steel

Walking through the battlefield

Tryin to emotionally rebuild

What has been destroyed

My heart torn apart

Another fight is about to start

As I use the last piece of my heart

Swinging my sword at them

One goes down, my friend

This battle I want to end

A message of hope I send

To my friend who had my back

Now gone pain I retract

This is not an act

My heart I just want it back.

Excuses us, ladies and gentlemen, one, two

You need to pick your afro, daddy
Because it’s flat on one side
You need to pick your afro, daddy
Because it’s flat on one side, what you waitin’ on
Well, if you don’t pick your afro
You’re gonna have one side high

Well, you said you was gonna take me to see Wu-Tang, baby
So I braided my hair, well, yes, you did
You said you was gonna take me to see Wu-Tang, baby
So I braided my hair, yes, I did, corn roll and everything, baby
Well, you changed your mind and said we weren’t goin’
But my momma saw you there, yes, she did

Check this out, one time

Well, I been blowin’ up your pager, daddy
But you never call me back
Well, I be puttin’ in 911, baby
But you never call me back, no, no
See, you don’t know how to use that pager, daddy
I’m gonna take that hoe back, yes, I will, you know I’ll do it

~CREATURES~
by Missy B
we are creatures who can say something with nothing but
expression
we are creatures with habits and likes that help but also bring
depression
we are creatures whose faces don’t always say the truth in our hearts
discretion
we are creatures who lounge all day and expect to get paid
regression
we are creatures who sometimes stink but try to hide it
confession
we are creatures who play games but may lie to win
indiscretion
we are creatures who allow things to happen for reason unknown
impression
we are creatures who want to be on top but don’t always know how
accession
we are creatures who buy without hesitation but have no monies
possession
we are creatures
we are creatures
we are creatures
INTERCESSION

Little Girl Lost

CovenantHouse

Little girl riding a bike in the middle of the night
From boredom to stress she moves out of fright
You can’t detect it on her face she hides all of that
he heard the sound a block away click-clack
Her mothers up the way at the crack house spot
Only diggin deeper the blunts to slow her thoughts
Unconscience of her surroundings her future even bleeker
Daddy never raised her to be a knowledge seeker
Never stopping time to free up her mind
Wool over her eyes never realize she been walking blind

We have dreams, desires
We put forth effort and energy
But do we ever know what impact we have
Does a person really have to die to be honored or respected
for who he or she is?
Some of us swim upstream some swim with the flow
but those who are courageous enough to be
themselves, be different or dare to pursue their
DREAMS
are the real
KINGS & QUEENS
those who stand for what they believe, create and give back to
SOCIETY
but in the process we doubt, we give up, we stop swimming
only to realize we had it all along
NO ONE
or rarely anyone wants to praise the ones that are different
because they are envious
jealousy because they didn’t dare reach for the
STAR
or do what makes them truly
HAPPY
