Love is Dope 2021: Featuring Lyrical Paradigm

The Trees
By Lyrical Paradigm

There were whispers in the unknowing
She got lost in them
Often finding trees in the forest
She could hear them beating
They would bend for her
Encasing her in breathing
She would listen for her name
Wait patiently for her to be summoned
Cradled her head against leaves
The shiver of the breeze would soothe her

These trees knew things

She used their bark for cleansing
They would know her skin as melody
A tune she would maestro with her walk
Horns in her right leg
Strings in her left
They would play concertos of her scent
Weaved into branches

She and the trees would find heaven on highs
Contrasted darkness in backgrounds
She would find centers in sap
Drink from the star stuff
Her voice drowned out by shimmers and twinkles
The trees would sing for her
Moving the horizons wayward
Covering her tracks
Keeping her wild by taming her
She counted their rings to remember time the trees 
she always saw the forest

Don't you feel the vibes? If you want to get in tune with Lyrical's art, you can follow her @lyricalparadigm on all social media platforms. We follow her, and she's a whole mood. Believe it.

Bad things happen to good people all the time, it’s not about what happened to you, it’s about YOUR behavior afterwards. (Y’all can hear him right?)  Let’s proceed still in that voice, you get to choose how and if you will survive something.  You are granted the right to look at yourself in the mirror and say, man this sucks but I GOT ME, and I got this. I can and will overcome this.  Back to my voice, you can also say nothing to yourself in that mirror, forgo it and showers, and wallow. I want to be clear every now and again a

Ladies, Make Him Act Right! (From a man's perspective)

So ladies, we have a tendency to get advice from women about MEN far more than we should. So I have a special treat today. We're going to get some advice on how to entice, encourage, and exalt a man from you guested it.. A MAN. I picked one, who speaks with the sole purpose to educate. So some of his language may be a bit harder than you're used to but.. you will not be disappointed. Capt SistaGurl Out!  Introducing Tikko Brohey  Ladies do you feel like “dudes ain’t shit” or “dudes don’t act right?” Have you ever thought about the things you do that contribute to that? The answer is probably not.  Now granted there are dudes out there who just ain’t shit, and that’s just what it is. Majority of men are good men. But his partner can often determine just how good he'll actually be. Every woman deserves to be treated like a queen, as every man deserves to be treated like a king. The disconnect comes from when there’s an argument all the King and Queen shit is out the
