I’ve housed a loud, invisible intrusion,
Ominous, opaque in nature,
Ray of darkness,
Asphyxiating, tranquility tapered.
Faltering fruitful future fulfillment.
Guilt-ridden aftermath of mistakes,
Allowed my firm foundation to shake,
The toxic traitor to blame, my bane,
None other than fear,
I no longer permit you to reside here.

Language Barriers: When the struggle is real.
@LHenrixx #ExpressYourself #Travel #JetLife #Culture #Inspiration
Travel, though the epitome of escapism, can be a feat within itself. Solo travel, though also enjoyable and empowering, can also be an uphill struggle. Solo travel as a WOMAN can be a molehill and a mountain. Especially within a different town. Or country. Or continent.

Rarely do you encounter an individual who is equally as talented as they are humble, compassionate, goofy and
somewhat wholesome (haha!). Today, I bring you an appreciation article on the birthday of someone who I am blessed to have known for years and to have been a loyal fan to:

When the allure of travel is bypassed by border control drama!
via Daily Prompt: Deny
So you decide on a destination. This may or may not entail the accompaniment of friends. You submit the vacation form at work-

A visual, truthful ode to ‘Wanderlust’ (definition: a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world). This project combined visual artists, a photographer, a fellow poet and a mood-setting, melodic music score (all contributors available in the credits).
If you lack substance, you and I lack longevity,
My dreams take place in New York
Where forks rest, entangled in tastes from Mounted dishes of fish tacos, giros and deli sides,
My fantasies reside in Cairo to Castries,
Markets and Marrakesh to Marigot Bay’s trees,
Erogenous escapes bring ease to me; I said erogenous escapes bring ease.
