Maria Drea – I Am

Ooooooo she’s back! Yeah.. MARIA DREA! The one with the voice like velvet… And that production! The way it supports her voice and holds it up like a proud parent, magical!

I feel like Drea is just setting us up so nicely for when a full length project finally hits our airwaves.

Each day I get closer to closure

Vocals clean like a pin and spilling all the scorching tea in such an elegant way. Hello somebody!

I’m so excited for what she’s doing here, she’s being a SINGER. In a mainstream world lost in the literal sauce of begging for streams and likes, it’s great to see a new artist doing it for the love and craft.

Please never change and long may it continue. Let’s make sure we support and scream about singers like Maria Drea and the like.

Poetry

Pride keeps me in shatters

Pride keeps me in shatters though I’m begging to be healed Screaming for relief but my clutch will not yield

I say I’m doing fine and I promise I’m okay. But my heart is gently peeling pumping blood of disarray

Ruins

In spiritual ruins

That’s how I entered your throne room

Bright with promises you know I didn’t keep
Brokenness mixed with shouts of bravado.

I turned my back to rebuke myself, ashamed you should see me this way

Desperately trying to piece myself together

Forcing parts to fit but always losing my grip. Crying ‘cos it only hurt more.

Yet you waited

For me to forgive myself and allow your healing

But I’m too ashamed so I’ll continue hurting, yearning, bleeding
