Poem: “I really do”

I wish you happiness.

I really do.

I wish you joy that’s unspeakable.

I really do.

I wish you love that’s genuinely, sacrificially unconditional.

I really do.

I wish you ease in returning that same kind of love to your partner.

I really do.

I wish you prosperity of heart and spirit that overflows.

I really do.

I wish you success in finding all the things I could not do or be for you.

I really do.



Because I no longer wish for things like this.

Now I possess great love, joy, and happiness, and they have freed me.

Freed me to the Point of NO Return to the pain, regrets, stress, and bitterness of the past.

See when I wish you the best, it’s with the utmost sincerity.

I wish you the best in all you are AND in all you do.

I really do.

Blogging Flashbacks

According to WordPress, this is my first blog post πŸ™‚

Well, yay me! For finally getting back onto/into the interwebs. My blogging peaked in 2012 when I worked with the Black AIDS Institute to cover the International AIDS Conference in Washington, DC. I attempted to sustain while on post-doc at the HIV Center (Columbia University), but as the years passed blogging became a distant memory.

I’m about to become ONE with this blog, and I’m excited. Stay tuned.

I’ll be posting here and sharing to other outlets, like Medium.
