LILY ROSE WED Weddings | Events | Designs A Magazine for all Things Creative Welcome to the Premiere Issue of Lily Rose WED. We are so excited to have you join us as we embark on this new creative journey. One of our most fascinating accomplishments since the Preview Issue launched in September 2010, was becoming an editorial partner with Two Bright Lights located in Chicago, IL. Through our partnership, our publication receives incredible, high quality photos from national and international wedding and event photographers. We canâ€&#x;t wait to share them with you. We LOVE our premiere issue. In addition to beautiful wedding photos, we also have great interior design, and a fabulous homecoming featuring my beloved Howard University: Go Bison! Thank you to our incredible advertisers for all of your support. Best, Shea Thomas

Marquise T. Watson is a young man making a difference. Born in Newark, NJ, Watson, 21, is the author of Break The Cycle, a coming of age story of inner city youth. The book attempts to provoke a sense of urgency and open the eyes of urban youth, while uplifting the community. The novel is a perfect example of the importance of good decision making: “the future is in your hands,” Watson said, in between classes at Union County College where he is studying business. Lead character, Amari Crews needs to sell more than bras and pajamas to take his family out of the hood. White an assistant manager for Victoria‟s Secret, Amari dreams of independence, entrepreneurship, and wealth. However, rather than working towards his goals, Amari becomes reckless: complacency is his enemy. For more information and to purchase the book, please visit: www.marquisewatson.com 73

POET‟S

PEN 76


A William Shakespeare Poem Shall I Compare thee to a Summer’s Day? Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date. Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimmed; And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed. But thy eternal summer shall not fade Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st; Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade, When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st, So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
