Baby Girl You’re Star

Sharing a poem with you all today for Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s or Single’s Awareness, whichever you prefer) and a classic video from NC native J. Cole to commemorate Black History Month and remind you to “love yourself or nobody will.” Enjoy!

Compensation

Paul Laurence Dunbar, 18721906

Because I had loved so deeply,
Because I had loved so long,
God in His great compassion
Gave me the gift of song.

Because I have loved so vainly,
And sung with such faltering breath,
The Master in infinite mercy
Offers the boon of Death.
