locsofpoetry_ I've posted this quote because something has been troubling me for quite some time. Thus, story time has been inspired. For those of you who have followed me from the very beginning, you've known that I had a best friend for over eleven years. We were literally inseparable and knew each other since adolescence. I started a sentence and she finished it. That's how in sync we were. Until one day, a guy came along and things started to change. She would call less, stop by my house less, check in less, it was almost as if she had become a stranger. Her new relationship consumed her. It changed her into someone I no longer recognized. We had always promised to each other that we never would allow ourselves to lose our sense of self in a relationship. And now I didn't know the woman who stood before me. Her behavior became erratic and her state of mind was questionable. He became her life. She didn't know how to function without him. We eventually just stopped talking altogether. I thought that a guy breaking my heart was the worst heartbreak I would ever experience but I was wrong. Nothing hurts more than a lifelong friend who breaks your heart. I shared this story of my deepest heartbreak to shed some knowledge from my experience. Being in love with @rongrizz is one of the best things God has ever blessed me with. But I am mine before I'm anyone else's. Never allow yourself to compromise who you are in a relationship. If you feel like you're changing who you are just to appease your significant other, I urge you to love yourself more. No one will ever be able to love you more than you love you. I loved myself before I met Ron and being with him has made me love myself even more because he enhances the quality of my life. He doesn't complete me for I am already complete. He simply is the whole that complements my whole. Stay encouraged and always choose you. || #locsofpoetry #mylife 11h

locsofpoetry_ There is nothing I hate more than seeing my image or my friend's image or work used without his permission or without compensation. This thieving heaux, @whocaresnyc, took @markusprimelives' work and used it for monetary gain. Let me tell y'all something, I am the MOST ruthless motherfucker when people STEAL or CREDIT something that is not theirs. BOOST the shit out of this post. Let others know she's stealing and shouldn't be profiting! 4d
  •   iam_miss_gg thats the worst company of clothing! i bought once from who cares ny they are literally thiefs!! they send me completely different things of what i ordered them diff sizes diff product diff quality of what they showed diff design everything. Go ahead u should sue them for stealing ur poduct and sell it as theirs ! 4d
  •   beardcurator @heathernycole9 Woooowwww 4d
  •   shelbyy_clarke @_sefistikated LOOL not bad 4d
  •   heathernycole9 @beardcurator yo I want that on a tank or tshirt lol. Tell the guy to make that! but ok, I see where this person is coming from because if someone stole your idea for beardcurator id be pissed as hell too. However, your idea is an original idea. Does Disney get paid when that guy used Pocahontas and Princess Jasmine? I doubt it. But even so, that's what patents are for. If he has a patent he can sue them. Otherwise, that just sucks... 4d
  •   sheenaachantaa @nellstur i like 4d
  •   rise_n2_daybreak Are you kidding me? That's not even cool! 3d
  •   rise_n2_daybreak @heathernycole9 your right. Posting on Instigram or any media just leave your work vulnerable.anyone at anytime could be a target thats why patent laws and copy right are important. However, still smdh @whocaresnyc. You should be ashamed 3d
  •   _thainicole Smh. This is exactly why artists are apprehensive about sharing their work on the Internet. Because anyone can take your art, use the image on numerous products, and profit off of your work without you ever knowing it. This is exactly what happened to my father years ago, which is why he had stopped selling his prints at art shows. If you're not going to at least share the profit, then you have NO business using that artist's work without their consent @whocaresnyc Period. 3d

locsofpoetry_ So I'm going to tell y'all a story because who doesn't love story time? ||
I was working at my parents' restaurant on a cold day in mid January. Just another typical day in the life. I was out running errands and come into the restaurant to see @rongrizz seated in one of the booths with a friend. I'm like "zamnnnnnn, he is fahnnnnnn." Backstory: So way back when, in my high school days, he and I attended the same high school. But we never said a word to each other. Because once upon a time I was an introvert. He was the guy everyone loved to love. Class president, Mr. Popular, just the kind of person that people just gravitated toward. I was the nerd of all nerds. I literally had the same people in my classes from freshman to senior year. I just wanted to get in and out of high school. Hence, we never interacted. So the universe conspired and had him walk into the restaurant with his fine ass seven years later. I walked over to his booth and greeted him with a nod and a smile. He did the same. I remember hugging him and inhaling his scent like a little fucking creep. I'm like "lawddd, yassssss " We exchange numbers and internally I convince myself that we can be really good friends. Yeah.. So about that.. I fell in love with this fine chocolate specimen sent directly from the Gods like on day two. I was like "yooooo... Heart, you fucking up. Chill, B. I ain't catching feelings.." But y'all.. Honestly I couldn't hold back. The feelings consumed me. A love that made my entire body burst. Next thing I know, I'm Draking and singing Take Care and calling him on some Marvin Room's shit. He immediately hops on a plane to NY and tell me he loves me, too. We've been together ever since. The rest is still unwritten . || #locsofpoetry #rongrizz #blacklove

  •   thedon_chi @csshemmingsfan bruh people are so dumb that they hop on a bashing band wagon like any real sensible person would have got what I was saying but because they all suck the owner of this person profile Dick they dont get it. Everyone that just came at me I laughed because most of them are women and fake ass feminists followers no one who thinks for themselves because what I was saying wasnt even hard to read. And no i dont believe a woman should be raped at all under and any circumstances shape or form but even as clear as I just said these asses would still say see hes saying yes. Lol they're all jerk offs 1w
  •   csshemmingsfan @thedon_chi I think the problem came from both sides. You were frustrated that your points were not fully understood and therefore it showed in your writing. This made it even harder for some people to understand your arguments. Due to these sad times emotions are high which is fine. But when you are overly emotional/frustrated it blurs focus/reasoning causing both sides unnecessary miscommunications. Despite disagreements or lack of understanding, it really helps to express yourself clearly and respectfully. 7d
  •   csshemmingsfan @thedon_chi and again, what the other commenters were trying to say was that no matter how provocative one decides to dress, a man can loose all the respect in the world for them, but it should never justify rape or any type of harassment. It is that person's right to dress as they please. The way you presented Your argument was as if the women are partially to blame for rape. That's why they assumed that you had the 'blame the victim' type of mentality. As if they asked for it. I think that's what ticked off a lot of people. Try to see it from their point of view for a second. What everyone was saying was that No matter what a woman wears, it's not a matter of whether she was right or wrong to dress that way, or whether or not she wanted to be noticed. The point is that she never ask to be raped, it is the mans choice, his own free will that made it happen. Is man not responsible for his own choices? Can he not control himself? Or is he just an out of control animal whenever he sees half naked women? I may not agree with the choices of women who choose to dress provocatively but again, they did not asked to be raped! What kind of man chooses to rape a woman just because she was dressed a certain way?? With that type of thinking it will be the same man who would probably rape a woman even when she is modestly dressed. So you see, the point is not always about how you present yourself as you stated, it's about one's mindset, your intentions. Women can dress modestly all day and still get raped, black people can comply all day and still get killed. Are you getting this? 7d

locsofpoetry_ Have you ever had a relationship run its course and the pain you felt afterward was unimaginable? Like your heart literally felt like it didn't belong in your chest? A pain so unbearable you had to ask the universe why? Why you? Why now? God, Allah, Mother Nature, whomever you pray to surely had a purpose, right? Whether you've been through the process, are currently going through this process, or will go through this process in the future, there's a purpose in all of this. You were meant to experience this storm or (storm(s) in my case) to fully appreciate the sun. God knows I've encountered my fair share of unworthy men. A.k.a fuckboys. But without them or my experiences with them, I wouldn't appreciate the love I have now. Storms are temporary, love isn't. Stay encouraged || #locsofpoetry 1w

  •   locsofpoetry_ @wildbrilliantdivine Love, everyone's feelings are irrelevant. If you're happy and in an amazing relationship, you post whatever the hell you want. If people don't like it, they know where the unfollow button is. You are a QUEEN, and don't let anyone make you feel otherwise. 2w
