So, …

My buddy Snark told me about private posts on Word Press and I tried one.  On my side, it says PRIVATE: then the Title.  Best I can tell, it was not simultaneously posted to FB and/or Reader.  Do I dare go again?  Ha!  I just may. End my agony as Maya Angelou suggests.  This quote is my new mantra:

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. – Maya Angelou

But before I privately post here again, I did take the edge off by responding to several group threads after starting three of my own in the ASG I had joined previously.  Folks with similar situations who automatically get it.  You’ve no idea how much that matters.  What I found out (already knew) is that EVERYBODY has a story.  I am not unique.  I felt alone but I am NOT alone.  We will get through this rough patch and move into the light.  In fact, I already see glimmers.

As always, more to come.

For 5/20/18 ~ Hate on Me by Jill Scott

Time once again for #SLS.  Helen with assistance from  Kirstwrites, brings us the following theme “a song from an artist/singer who shares your name”.   Thank you both, this is a good one.

I am the kid who had a hard time finding anything personalized.  Jill is not terribly uncommon but not quite Ann or Linda either.  Any who, I went off in search of the singers named Jill.  I found this powerhouse Renaissance woman who can do it all – singer-songwriter, model, poet and actress.

If I could give you the world on a silver platter
Would it even matter, you’d still be mad at me
If I could find in all this a dozen roses
Which I would give to you, you’d still be miserable
Here reality I’m gon’ be who I be and I don’t feel no faults
For all the lies that you bought
You can try as you may, break me down but I say
That it ain’t up to you, gone and do what you do
Hate on me, hater, now or later
‘Cause I’m gonna do me, you’ll be mad, baby
Go ‘head and hate on me, hater, I’m not afraid of
What I got I paid for, you can hate on me
Ooh, if I gave you peaches outta my own garden
And I made you a peach pie, would you slap me high
Wonder if I gave you diamonds out of my own womb
Would you feel the love in that or ask why not the moon
If I gave you sanity for the whole of humanity
Had all the solutions for the pain and pollution
No matter where I live, despite the things I give
You’ll always be this way, so go ‘head and
Hate on me, hater, now or later
‘Cause I’m gonna do me, you’ll be mad, baby
Go ‘head and hate on me, hater, I’m not afraid of
What I got I paid for, you can hate on me (repeat)
You cannot hate on me ’cause my mind is free
Feel my destiny, so shall it be
You cannot hate on me ’cause my mind is free
Feel my destiny, so shall it be
Hate on me, hater, now or later
‘Cause I’m gonna do me, you’ll be mad, baby
Go ‘head and hate on me, hater, I’m not afraid of
What I got I paid for, you can hate on me (repeat)
You cannot hate on me ’cause my mind is free
Feel my destiny, so shall it be
You cannot hate on me ’cause my mind is free
Feel my destiny, so shall it be
Hate on me, hater, now or later
‘Cause I’m gonna do me, you’ll be made, baby
Go ‘head and hate on me, hater, I’m not afraid of
What I got I paid for, you can hate on me
