Why I decided to publish Blueberry State of Mind.

At the age of 6, I began writing. Needing an outlet to take my mind away from the abuse I was enduring writing became the most beautifulest thing I could ever do. And so with my little naive hands, I, my pencil and pad sat about writing any and everything I ever reflected on. Being 6 believe me there was alot my mind experienced.
The birth of Blueberry State of Mind came On March 1,2011. Yet another milestone in my healing process. This book has alot of what I wrote from the age of 6 to now. I am encouraging all to pick up their copy of Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths by Missy Smith available @Amazon, Barnesandnoble, Xlibris, Booksamillion and your local bookstores. Do not forget to follow me on twitter @msprettyeyes33 and facebook Author Missy Smith
I wish to thank all who are constantly reading my reflections on my blog, facebook and following me on twitter. I wish to also thank all who believe in me enough to purchase my book journeying with me and seeing my transformation from "Victim to Victorious".

I am the epitome of SURVIVOR!

Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths

Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths by Missy Smith

Here are 3 sneak peak excerpts from my book Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths.

pg 51

My status is other

My race is other

My disposition is other

My skin color is brown

Application in hand asking what race am I


What difference does it make?

What does it matter the color I come in?

Various fusions of my DNA has no bearing on my ability I do say

I am human

I am caring



Not giving in to these stereotypical prejudices

Before we proceed you first must know my status i.e. color of my skin

You will see once we come face to face

However, I see you are trying to judge this book before actually reading it

Can't do that

My status depicts other

More complex

Full of intellect

Ready to discriminate soon as you see what is checked

Not enough descriptive spaces for me to tell my true race story

Naw, I am much more diverse

So instead of eliciting confusion

I simply choose to check other first!


Better days are coming

Heh girl, you're feeling down girl

Know it's been rough

However, the hard part’s over girl

Only up is where you are now destined

So good you will be

So envious they will become

Beating rhythmless beats on their own drums

No more tears girl

No more pain girl

Only laughter

Only joys

They'll say something’s different girl

You'll say I know

Secret to them unknown

Smiling cuz only you'll know

Heh girl

Be patient girl

It’s coming

You'll love it

Your heart will sing

As your beauty reigns supreme

Be patient girl

It’s coming girl

You're coming girl


Victim No More
pg 104

I’ve swam with sharks

Petted dolphins

Rode horses

Walked alongside lions

Gentle giants

Been defiant early on

Tell me no

I shall take it as a yes

Slam a door

I will simply open it back up

Walking through head high

Never been a rule follower

Though sometimes rule breaker

Team leader

Spirit lifter

Mountain climber

Obstacle over-comer

Do not tell me I am wrong

When I know I am right

See I have been through hell

Right here on earth

Tears falling as I have finally put me first

No more pain

Mind will not allow it

Drama free

Victim no more

Realizing then I was nothing with you

Knowing now, I am everything without you

book excerpt:


There comes a time when one must stand and be counted.

Never is there reason to allow yourself to become beaten to the pointof no return.

The road to "Strength" is paved with truth and wisdoms.

Yet many fail to see the value in this way of thinking.

So many times we settle for less than what we truly believe we are worth.

Many will keep you down in order for themselves to rise up.

Saying simply to self you are someone is not enough.

You must do more than say it, you must also prove it.

Not just to others, but to yourself that you are actually that

someone who not only matters, but who also counts.

This reflection and much more are found inside Blueberry State of Mind.

Alot of the Women who I find myself drawn too are who I now refer to as DIVAS
These ladies are truly tremendous. They take the time to read my blogs, my book, my reflections on my facebook page and just took the time to get to know me. So this is for you ladies.


Forgiv'n U

This is a reflection I wrote about an ex who truly showed me the meaning of having a broken heart. I never thought this would happen to me but it did and I have over and over again written about this and many other feelings he caused me to feel.
As you should be able to tell, I am an emotional writer.

Forgiv'n U
By Missy Smith

I was so angry with you
Feelings of betrayal you heaped upon me split my being in 2
I thought we were forever
At least that's what I believed since you told me this very thing
My trust, my soul, my heart was totally invested
Sharing my darkest secrets as you promised to keep me protected
How did we go from I love you to I hate you in the span of 7 years
Heh J, whatcha doing today
I remember it like yesterday
I'd call and say wanna come out and play
Smiling you'd say I'm on my way
Preparations for our nightly bliss begins
My body smelling of vanilla with a hint of cherries awaited her "King"
Our greetings of heh Mami, heh Papi followed by sweet kisses
Damn I do admit how sometimes I miss those cherry lips
Mmmmmmm just one of many things that had me whipped
The eye of the storm nearby
Remembering how you sensually made my body cry
Caressing gently my being as your fingers ran through my curly hair
Did you ever love me?
Forget I asked
Sometimes the truth is more than one can actually bear
So I’ll just pretend when u said it, u actually did mean it
Forget that you forgot my birthday, even though we share the same day
Forget that I waited even after you left
Forget that you broke my soul when you abandoned it
Forget that you promised to love me forever
See now, none of that even matter
For that was then and this is now
And I've released that pain of past from my heart of today
Yes I still smile when I remember the good times
And yes I occasionally cry asking myself why
But I have learned asking never brings the answer one truly seeks
Tragic was our break
No longer do I awake to feelings of heartache
Anger gone
Hate, a thing I couldn't convince myself to keep hanging onto
But through all our ups and downs, I hate you's, I love you's
Just wanted to say J, I truthfully forgive you

My inside...

The inside of my mind breathes truths reflectively speaking written ambitions as well contradictions
Embracing gentle stirrings of my pens velvety ink
Brazenly etching permanently across the pages my creative offerings.
My inside.......?

Truly Missy

So I have decided to do this blog on blogger. I have so many out there but felt this new one will best rep me. Well, I finally published my book Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths by (yours truly) Missy Smith available @,,,, Borders and your local bookstores.  I am amazed by the openness I allowed this book to take on. Sometimes going through pain you tend to keep things bottled up and I just no longer felf the need to do this. I am an emotional writer and in actuality it helps me with the releasing of what I have termed my "Emotional Truths". I began writing at the age of  6 as it was a way for my mind to escape the physical and mental abuse I unfortunately had to endure. It has taken a long time to come to grips with the road my life landed upon but I know now the beauty of SURVIVING and so I will shout it to the rooftops if need be that I am a SURVIVOR and nothing nor anyone can ever take that from me.

Blueberry State of Mind represents my healing. There are poems and reflections gracing these 130 pages. A lot of the poems in this book were written from the age of 6 to now. I am so proud that I allowed my vision to be seen by you all. Many more of my reflections can be found on my facebook page under Author Missy Smith, also you can read more about me on
as well as following me on twitter @msprettyeyes33

Again, I love writing as it is a permanent part of me and I will continue to share these writing with you, the world.

I am Missy Smith, Author of Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths.
Writer of "Life" and everything in-between.

Who I am

Author of Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths
Mother of an amazing son
Single and yes by choice
Writer of Life Poetry
Poetically displaying my passions for all to read
Blogger of many thoughts
Dreamer whose ambitions reach farther than the sky allows
I am She
The she who details life told in a poetic tone
The she who knows her worth
The she who has SURVIVED some of life's most cruelest moments
Yes I am that she who lets her ink bleed her thoughts onto the pages of her best friend,
My Diary
Yes this is who I am
I am She



By Missy Smith

Hell, right here on earth

But you won’t know it for I smile brighter than any rays the sun could ever produce

My gift and yet my curse

Never one to complain, that is to the world

But to me I do all too often

Just wish this sh#t inside my head quits buzzing

I know I am ok

Just have to start believing it

Here I am a Mother, Author, Poet, and Dreamer

And still I find fault in every one of those facets

I guess I am so use to things being far from perfect

Until when happiness occurs I look for excuses to down her

Complicated life of past

Equals me complicating my life of now

Damn it Missy Stoppppppppp

Stop self imploding

Stop self doubting

Stop entertaining negativity

Start remembering your speeches to others

Empowering not just them but you

Take them horrors of then

And kick their asses now

The voices, yes the voices tell them to take a freaking hike

Remember you are a Queen

A Survivor

Yes U are a motherf#cking factor

Your wounds of old are all healed now

Your past is past

Your future is blazing

For you are walking a path of amazing

Backwards thoughts are now forward thinking’s
