Day 3: This House

The writing 201 challenge is over, but I plan on continuing with it!

Really had a ball writing! The one thing I wish I had been better at was writing and sharing my work daily(work and school kinda got in the way).

So I’ve decided to share my work anyways like a boss! This was originally meant for Day 3 (Skin, Prose, Internal Rhyme). I wrote it after watching a few (dozen-lol) videos of this Alotta Boutte. 

When I started down my road to burlesque a few years ago, I searched high and low for women that looked like me so I could pick up tips on how to really showcase my body.

I found that and so much more when I finally came across this lovely woman here! Her creativity, stage presence, charisma, and realness blew me away!

For that reason, I would like to dedicate this poem to her.

Thank you for inspiring me to be more of my most authentic self – on and off the stage. I keep hoping that when she’s finally free to give master burlesque classes that I will be able to go.

If not – don’t be surprised when ya’ll see me put up a GoFundMe to raise them funds! LOL

I loves the house that I am in and the house I am in loves me.

How else could it constantly care for me?

To remain standing proudly throughout these years –

Oh how I love the house that I am in!

It suits me so – could never let it go.

This house that I built.

With its rich cinnamon brown exterior, and lush posterior..

I never want to be without this house that I built!

This house cherishes me – completes me.

This house that I built.

Music has always been a part of me. No matter how many times I would try to pursue a career in something else I would find myself coming right back to it. So now I am done with running scared. I was all in on this journey. And I'm so glad that I saw it through, because it lead me to something that I love. Something that I didn't think was possible - the ability to become a self published author. For years I have written poems, my thoughts, short stories, and songs. Really it was just therapy to me, but now I want to see where else it can take me too. So I'm learning the social media ropes thanks to all these social media outlets. Also working up my nerve to face the networking scene for the artists and musicians in my hometown too. All with the hopes of connect with others who love music as much as I do. And to make some coin by music and write freelancing. Let's see what happens, shall we?
