  • Enough is enough

    Dear Domestic Violence Victims and survivors,

    I need not tell you that what you have went through is wrong. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 20 people per minute experience Domestic violence. 20 people per minute. My own Father experienced it just 8 years ago. Last week it again struck a blow within my circle of…read more

  • Man on Fire

    Dear Denzel Washington,

    I was only 5 years old when I saw the movie that won you your first Oscar, Glory. With my paternal background including a Civil War hero it was a welcoming start to the impact you’ve had on my life since.
    As I’ve watched your career I’ve always felt connected to the characters you’ve played. The masterful way you’ve…read more

  • Gabrielle, this is how you helped lay the foundation for my future

    Dear Gabrielle Union,

    When I was a teenager, you starred in the most popular movies of my generation, such as She’s All That and Bring It On. Your career has stood the test of time, but for me (and the world), your relevance extends well beyond your movie credits.

    At a young age, you helped lay the foundation for a life I didn’t even yet…read more

    Love Undercover

    I’ve fallen in love with you
    In a lingering silence
    Despite my best intentions
    Your beauty grabbed my heart
    My mind was obliged to follow

    The silence is my own doing
    Courage I lack to say the words I feel
    I’ve said them before and I’ve been left broken
    Knowing that the meaning in them was unrequited
    So I long in the silence I’ve created

    That…read more

    A Term Comes

    So many years have now passed
    I lost you so much sooner than I planned
    I wanted us to be old and gray
    When we finally let go
    A lifetime has seemed to pass now
    A single word now comes to describe losing you
    Lucky
    No not what might come to mind I know
    I was merely lucky to have known you
    To share moments upon this earth
    That were graced simply by…read more

    Buying a ticket for the subway

    The first time I was taking the subway in New York City on my own I was a little intimidated. It was only the 3rd time in my life I had been to New York. I wasn’t fully comfortable walking the streets let alone taking the subway. Growing up I had seen so many movies where people were mugged or pick pocketed on the sub way. I remembered there w…read more

    Why I broke off my engagement and what it taught me

    Dear Unsealed Community,

    When I was 19 years old, I knew exactly what I wanted. I wanted to chase my dream as a sportscaster. In pursuit of that dream,  I started working at the NBA. I commuted two hours from Columbia University to New Jersey, three days a week, because I was committed. I wanted to network with people who worked in sports. I…read more

  • The Only Mom I'd Need

    Dear Mom,

    From the very first day, you were always the one who was sure of me, even when I wasn’t. You told me once that my success would only be limited by my imagination. So many years later that still resonates in my mind whenever I face an adversity. Your faith in me was a lot more than just love but a faith I only now know fully. You s…read more

    • Your mom seems like such a very wise person. Not many people have the chance to have such a nurturing person to guide them through life and your mom is such a prime example of the definition of nurturing. I’m glad you got to experience such true love from your mother. She’s such a bright soul.

      • Kayjah,

        Thanks for the kind words. People often wonder why the grief I carry from losing her has persisted so long. It’s because of who she was. What she did for all of us. All of us besides my Mom have the same first and last initial in our names. My Mom’s name was Margery. We had a little inside joke between us where I would call her the MC…read more

  • Mom, Here is why I am strong

    Dear Mom,

    You once told me that you don’t worry about me because you know no matter what, I will always be OK. You said to me that throughout my life, whatever challenges I faced, I somehow always managed to persevere. You told me you know me better than anyone else. After all, you’re not only my mother but also my best friend.

    You know eve…read more

    • Lauren your mom is the reason you are the way you are today. She gave you such a huge precious mindset and I’m glad you have someone who you can call your best friend. She gave you so much wise words when it came to the tribulations that you had in your life. This is such a beautiful letter that shows her loving character.

    Long Black Train (The Road Back)

    Oh long black train
    You’ve been running for so long,
    Pulling me back from the edge
    Back to a place where I’m strong.

    We pulled out from that station
    It seems like a lifetime ago,
    The trip was sometimes bumpy
    The destination where I want to know.

    On beyond those darkened tunnels we…read more

    Unknown Love, An Illusion

    Oh dear love, what an illusion
    Yet the only object I have left to desire,
    Failing to find the key I can’t grasp
    Engulfed by a raging fire.

    To pit myself so recklessly against
    A most insurmountable foe,
    Well that’s just so cliché, so me
    The most unlovable person life could know.

    Whether it be confidence I lack in stride
    Or perhaps just unworthy…read more

    Pierce the Veil

    Dear Unsealed Community,

    It might seem impossible to imagine that I am a timid person. Though not too long ago I was a very different person than I am today. I questioned the voice inside me almost daily. I often would hide from voicing how I felt and what was going on inside my head. As one can see today that’s no longer the case. More on t…read more

    I didn't think I was smart enough to go to Columbia

    To The Unsealed Community,

    When I graduated high school, I honestly didn’t know what to expect from myself.

    After getting waitlisted, I got accepted to Columbia in mid-June of my senior year of high school. At the time, Columbia ranked top five in the nation. And while I was thrilled to be accepted, there was a part of me that was unsure i…read more

    Unseal Yourself

    Welcome to a site called The Unsealed
    A place where you can feel at peace and heal
    It can be hard to find a place where you can relax
    For a lot of sites, the nasty behavior is to the max

    Fierce arguments and cruel behavior rule the day
    Not in The Unsealed, where kindness is here to stay
    It may take a while to believe these truths
    Trust issues…read more

      • Thank you Kayjah. I’m glad The Unsealed exists. It’s excellent to unleash whatever grievances we have through love and understanding as you mention. I love the way you put it. It’s sad that so many people never get to be heard. I hope The Unsealed continues to find a way to the voiceless so they can use their voice.

  • A sponteous trip to the city

    When I was younger, I was a huge David Letterman fan. I remember watching his morning show before I left for my summer job. I loved his sense of humor and the crazy things they did on the show. So, I was disappointed when the show was canceled.

    A couple years later, he returned to the air with Late Night with David Letterman. It was on so late.…read more
