It was 1am and I was headed downstairs to use the bathroom. My parents’ bedroom door was locked but I could hear Luther Vandross’ “Here and Now” blasting. I froze for a couple seconds before entering the bathroom. My childhood was haunting me and nightmares of knowing the exact moment my baby sister was created flooded my mind. My parents were doing it! As an adult in their home after living on my own for over 10 years….there was nothing I could do about it. As I peed, all I could think is Mommy hasn’t been “fixed” yet and I just can’t help raise more children! I crept back upstairs wanting to text my sister, Brenda or knock on my brother, Junior’s door and share the horror. After all…why should I be the only one racking up a large therapy bill?! But I decided against it. We had all been through so much and since my room was right above my parents….I took one for the team. Why were they always so loud when having sex?! The next morning I shared the horror with my siblings. Lol. Big Sis loves to share joy! Yea they didn’t find it funny. As I processed my parents’ sex lives a few things came to mind: 1. Visions of my mom’s hands around my neck when she finds out I wrote this; 2. My parents have been married for almost 32 years and been together since they were teenagers yet are still hot for each other. Their marriage isn’t perfect but it’s good to know that you can still love one person and want to rip their clothes off even with over three decades of trials and tribulations; 3. They are in their early to mid 50s and sex is still their middle name. This is a good indicator that I will age with a high sex drive; and 4. If the boo and I ever get serious and go the distance…I can only hope we embarrass our kids the way my parents embarrass me. Like I want us to be at one of our children’s basketball games with at least one of my legs on his as his hand is on my butt 🙂 Why? I want them to know that through trials and tribulations…their father and I are still choosing each other. Also, I want them to know that the Great Luther Vandross, may he rest in peace, is a love doctor. He makes R Kelly and Trey Songz look like babies who don’t know a thing about true passion. Luther is so powerful that he can still impregnate women from the grave with one song! What say you R and Trey? Amateurs! Luther is still express mailing the sperm to fertilize the egg. Never underestimate the “Here and Now,” the “Love Won’t Let Me Wait,” and the “Power of Love.” Luther is a “Superstar!” You have been warned! Stay blessed and most importantly, Stay Inspired. ~KJM (blogging as I head into the city)
I use to think hiding my feelings was a sign of strength but I now know that is far from true. Tonight I reminded him that he has my heart and that I believe in him. Now that’s strength!
I was in class at Penn State University when our world changed forever. All I could think about was my family…where was my family? They believed the third plane was headed to Central PA. I didn’t doubt for a second that they would shoot it down. I wasn’t worried about me. I was worried about NYC and DC. I was worried about the world as I knew it. And was my family safe as most worked in NYC?! I just went numb. Found solace in prayer. Jesus be a fence! September 11, 2001. Gone but never forgotten! Where were you?
It’s crazy that we live in a world where people care more about who is marry who and animal rights than our children. And I don’t mean worrying about whether a woman has a baby or aborts it. I’m talking about the state of the lives of our children. Children are being raped every day by people they trust. Pro lifers scream give them life but few care about the life they actually live. I’m so over people hiding behind religion to stop consenting adults from doing what the law says they have the right to do. What say you about our children? And I hear crickets from those religious fanatics… ~KJM
Kingston Jael (JL) Michaels is an alias I am writing under. Kingston represents my birth place of Kingston, Jamaica, Jael is my adopted niece’s name…representing the next generation of Jamaican Americans, and Michaels is my father’s name.

WELCOME to Kingston Jael’s page! I will be covering topics that range from spirituality to sexuality. Yes you can talk about both and in between! Generally, I write in the first person. I may be writing about my own personal experiences and/or may have interviewed some of my friends that are allowing me to write chapters of their lives. All names will be fictional and no legal nor financial advice will be given. My goal is for you to be entertained and inspired by my life’s journey! It is not easy chasing the American dream! I am doing this for myself, my family, and every immigrant that came to this great country to make something out of themselves. It is not my intention to hurt anyone with my views. However, in order to inspire others, I want to breathe life into them….and you simply cannot do that without exposing some aspects of your soul. So get ready! I WILL TAKE YOU THERE! Stay blessed and most importantly, stay inspired 🙂
