I GUESS WE ARE JUST FRIENDS

I wake up a couple of hours later because I’m cold. I see you across the room, sitting at the computer. You’re dressed already. You see that I’m awake and you smile. “I was about to slip out. You were sleeping so good I didn’t want to wake you. I’m just checking my email right quick.” I can tell right away that your mood has changed. You’re no longer as comfortable with me as you were before. This change makes me feel naked and it has nothing to do with what I’m wearing, or the lack thereof. I get up and begin to get dressed. Even though it’s spring and it’s warm, I put on jeans and a lightweight hoodie. I’m familiar with this new mood and it chills me to the bone. It makes me feel nervous and alone. You’re no lo...

WHAT I LEARNED FROM MY PARENTS ABOUT LOVE

What does the word “love” mean to you? Is it something that scares you? Or is it a word that puts a smile on your face? Who is the first person that pops into your head when you hear the word? A best friend? A sibling? A family member? A significant other? When I think of the word love, I think of my amazing parents. They pushed me to pursue my dreams and raised me to believe I can achieve anything in the world. On a romantic note, I can’t remember the first time I realized how in love my parents were with each other. Their love was always just something I just found as a normal part of life. When I was younger, I found their PDA one of the most embarrassing things in the world! Until about the age of 14, every time they would kiss in front of me I would cover my eyes and go, “Gross, PG-13...

#SUPERWOMAN TEENEAR | UP-AND-COMING URBAN POP SINGER TALKS TO HARNESS

Teenear discusses the biggest risk she’s taken, why she wants to be a good role model to young girls and positivity.  Women from all different walks of life contribute to Harness Magazine. On rare occasions, we come across women who are pursuing a dream that is quite extraordinary. Take Teenear, for instance: a young urban pop singer from Miami. When she was 15-years-old, her parents encouraged her to upload her cover of “Stay” by Rihanna to YouTube. Soon after, she signed on to Slip-n-Slide Records (the label worked with the likes of Rick Ross, Trina and Plies) and released singles with accompanying music videos. One of them, “Friday Night,” even featured Sage the Gemini. The song, an empowered anthem (peep the lyric: “Tonight I’m doin’ me”)  is about a girl who doesn’t need a man o...

TO THE TALL GIRL

Dear sister, stretch your neck. Not to the side. Upward. Crane it. If you look like a giraffe it’s because you are one. Because you reach higher branches. Because you overflow the space you’ve been allotted. Because your shoulders are temples to the birds. Because you already possess the sky.   Do not slouch in pictures. Do not notice the gap between his head and yours unless it is to see if you can pick something off the top shelf for him. Do not wish for less perspective. Do not be afraid of your own significance. You have the magnetism of a lighthouse. The musculature of a waterfall. The elevation of volcanic rock. The voice of a bugle calling forth from a tower. So sing our rally song.
