GO RAW: A POEM
My brothers and sisters go RAW/is bad health knocking at your door/and you refuse to heed the call/my sisters/go RAW/imagine the image you will give to your girls/and with healthy foods you could never be bored/see what the Goddess has in store/is longevity and more/radiant beauty/and your butt/yes/it can still be a cutie/with roots like Maca you see/and a super food like Goji Berries/can reverse disease/and restore your sight/and loving the sun/now this is out of sight/it brings you light/that produces vitamin D/and on my mother’s life/her name is Marie/it creates everlasting beauty/and keeps the bones strong/and calcium/how long/will it take for us to relate/that milk is not for us/it’s the sun/not store bought/that creates this too/and what about our wombs/and vagina too/yes sister I’m looking at you/the one with the jet black skin/yes the sun you can get in/it will restore your beautiful black skin/to how you looked/way back when/and my white brothers and sisters/please don’t let the sun miss ya/you need it too/and sun screen will never do/it may create Cancer in you/just watch what you eat/and what you do/so you won’t burn/my people when will we learn/that the sun gives energy to the earth/the plants and the dirt/and creates good health/don’t let society that dealt/another blow to you/telling you what to do/so that they can get money from you/buying this cream/and a crew/of other things/you don’t need/my sisters we could all be slim and lean/and healthy and clean/please don’t cook those beans/but sprout instead/and don’t eat right before you go to bed/your digestion system is like dead/and ready to sleep/and my sisters/soak your feet/in sea salt and peace/and don’t forget to release/all those thought that keep/you up at night/so let’s do it right/RAW foods are tight/and my sisters you just might/remove fright/ and the weight you don’t like/well for tonight/I’m turning off the lights/and delight/in tomorrow’s sight/and know that everything will be nice/no starch/no chips/no hype/I love you all/alright/
Women, especially black women, we don’t have to let society dictate our beauty. The hair you were born with is so beautiful. Your lips are so beautiful; your skintone is so beautiful. Men stop making our women feel schizophrenic about their looks. Love and embrace their natural beauty. When you see a sister embracing her natural state, congratulate her, encourage her, love her.
Sisters, even if all the men in the world told you that you were beautiful, would you believe them? It’s you that must look in the mirror and see your true beauty. Get a mirror, right now, and look closely and without comparing yourself to anyone else, find one thing about your face that is beautiful. Come on sisters, get closer. You know your nose is pretty or the shape of your eyes are unique. Maybe you have a beautiful birthmark and pretty skin. Now get even closer and kiss your image. Tell her you love her. Make peace with her. Alright now, that wasn’t so bad now was it? Okay, my sisters, enough for tonight. It’s time to sleep and rejuvenate and perhaps tomorrow you can come back to that mirror and pick up where you left off. Don’t worry, I will be doing it with you, looking in the mirror.
Peace and blessings, Queens. More love.

What is it about those pesticides?/30 or more on a tomato to make you cry/forty-eight in your apples/can make you die/slowly/these can’t be the apple a day/it won’t make the doctor go away/but he may get paid/and carcinogens/without even smokin’/and pesticide strawberries/they may keep your coughin’/or contaminated in a far worse way/so my people /let’s say/with our vote/it’s not okay/to treat our bodies and mother earth this way/and buy bananas that are fair trade/so that we can make a way/for others to thrive/non-organic baby foods/ a BIG lie/no real nutrition at all inside/pesticides food will make a baby cry/because of their more vulnerable nervous systems/so instead of non-organic fruits/kiss them/this will bring more good health/just like you wouldn’t beat a baby with a belt/by buying organic you will help/support local farmers/see these men and women shouldn’t have their arms up/but it’s the agribusinesses that may be to blame/but really I’m not stating any names/just really want things to change/so that our grains/would not have to rain/with dangerous herbicides/and this causes the water to rise/with toxic mess/and as you can guess/the cucumbers are next/sprayed with Dieldrin/with this pesticide you can’t win/and ingest too much and Cancer could be your kin/it’s not whether or when/we must call our friends/and put an end/to this mass destruction/on the foods we eat/and I myself will jump dynamic feats/just to eat/organic fruits/and yes even the vegetables and their roots/let’s care more than about being cute/it’s not a dispute/non-organic produce/IT’S BAD FOR YOU!
People, in this country, we must demand and support organic farming. This method of farming uses and waste for less water than big business farming. It is much more gentler on the earth and on our bodies.
Everytime we buy organic, we are saying with our dollars that we care about and support good health, not just good health for our families but for the planet as well. We must write our local politicians demanding that they make “green living” the standard, not the exception.
We can make a difference at the poll by requesting that our food production in this society be changed to one that is more sustainable, and conscious of the health of the growers as well as the consumer.
Vote with your dollars! BUY ORGANIC NOW!
Peace and Blessings

BLACK RAW FOOD GODDESS: LIVING A SENSATIONAL LIFE THROUGH RAW FOODS
Women it is time for us to rise up and take our rightful places as the healers in our homes. We must restore peace to the universe by first restoring peace to our individual families. Apples and fresh cinnamon keeps you sweet. Greens bring clarity and prosperity. Watermelon keeps the family vibration cool. Let’s say no more to artificial colors, additives and preservatives. Let’s refuse to give our children; our babies non-organic fruit and vegetables, causing mood swings and irritability.
We must pamper and nurture our spouses with love and healthy nutrition. No more bacon and eggs, to get the day started. What are we starting with this kind of meal? How about organic Oat groats instead, with raw almond milk and a variety of fresh seasonal fruits? No more hysterectomies, fibroid tumors, diabetes, high-blood pressure, yeast infections, or candida.
Let’s bathe our wombs in healthy foods, like fresh apricots, peaches and nectarines. No more chemically induced perfumes. Let’s smell like the flowers by using 100% pure essential oils. Let us show the universe that we care about each other, by honoring mother nature. Let’s not curse or use harsh words to express ourselves, this affects our wombs in a negative way.
Let’s start today, telling ourselves as women, that we are the true givers of life and that life begets life, not death. Our planet is depending on us. Let’s go RAW and instead of destroying the world, let’s honor her. Let’s really, truly, HONOR HER!
Peace and Blessings
