Sent from above 

My sun continues to shine

Even when covered by clouds  

My arms still reach for what’s mine

Even when distance multiplies 

The journey may lead to an end

But finding solace within

Is truly the most precious Godsend 

When everything closes

And only windows remain 

I know I’m off better 

And my steps traveled

Were not in vain 


transcend – ** NEW music you should hear**

to me, there’s nothing better than hearing music for the first time and feeling lifted. we’re not quite halfway through 2017 yet, but I’ve already been blessed with coming across some new gems. the following is a couple of new, vibe-heavy, tracks from a couple of somewhat underrated artists

selected track breakdown –

“Something” – ELHAE

Off of the new EP Aura II, “Something” rolls and flows, comparable to Drake (esp. “Controlla”), but still stands on its own with its’ own creative array of sounds and beats. P.S. whole album is worth a listen to, stay tuned for full review

why I like it – perfect song to vibe-out to.

“Say It Again” – H.E.R.

Sultry and sauntering, with drawn out beats and demanding words, “Say It Again” is a slow-moving, almost ethereal track.

why I like it – it’s sexy and chill.

***one to watch*** “make daddy proud” – blackbear

“make daddy proud” is truly a nontraditional, r&b oriented track with notable creative accents such as (what I can only think to describe as) video game sounds and robot voice,met with the up and down, roll and flow melody, and falsettos that currently dominate r&b/hip hop hits. This is off just released album ‘digital druglord’, which is already climbing the charts so it’s worth checking out the whole piece…review to come!

why I like it – truly creative, playful, and feel-good

enjoy !




fool’s gold

fools goldCold coffee

Blasted love songs fade to heartbreak

Hearts ache

Didn’t realize everything I thought would turn up fake

But looking back

You were on a straight plane the whole ride here

You never pretended to give more than you had

But those eyes told me different

Here I was falling for a best friend

Thinking despite your lack of effort, your care would manifest in the end

I shouldn’t be surprised

That the scissors that come with the rock and paper

Would cut so deep

That there’d come a day I’d want a refund

For all the wasted minutes dreaming about you while you just sleep

But who ever knew that

Fool’s gold

Could shine so bright

And who ever knew

That even when your cards fold

You’d still yearn a little

For that kiss goodnight


Sometimes I see glimpses 

I feel breaks of warmth

From flickers of light 

I see the you 

I wanna see

But other times

You’re a dark,silent, lonely night 

They say even the darkest nights turn into mornings

But you’re most content in shades of grey and blue 

You may not be my oasis 

But you’re the realest mirage I ever knew
