God loves me and this is evident because I love myself.

I am a self love advocate. I encourage others to love yourself and to put yourself first. You only get one life. Life is so much more fun when you treat yourself to a handbag, jewelry, lingerie, perfume and clothes if you are a woman. Men can treat themselves to Calvin Klein underwear and cologne I don’t know. Guys are different. Women love designer clothes preferably New York brands. I personally love Liz Claiborne and Anne Klein. I also love Calvin Klein. I never thought that the hurt little black girl that I was at 8 or 9 years old would grow up into this (Ayesha) Black woman who has admirers of different races and who overall people seem to like. I never knew I’d become a poet much less a writer but I love that I became a writer and I am a Cave Canem workshop poet. I had many of my poems published in the newsletter at NAMI Mercer!
