Today, I chose to make Blood Orange Ice Tea to welcome in the nice weather. The recipe is fool-proof and anyone can make it. As a blogger especially in food I believe that adding poetry would definitely put a spin on things and give a much needed touch in my creative life, so sit back, relax and enjoy!

The flowers 🌺
If I said I was the greatest
Would you believe me?
Would you?
For a while I spent
Countless nights, up late
Starring at the ceiling
Praying for GOD to make
my dreams come true.
To grow and let my light shine
But the catch was
I didn’t
Believe in myself.
I was doubtful
Confused and scared to
Put my work out.
In other words I was fearless.
No ones knows my journey &
Things I been through.
Confused, lacking self-love and wanting to kill myself on multiple
Occasions.
Thank GOD for art right?
The one thing that saved me!!! What is saving you? Better smell the flowers while you can still smell them.
