UNchanging value

strong black woman, bright streak of independence

same black woman sometimes feels weak and dependent

her value does not change as her emotions do

understand this

Don’t put more on her plate because of her race or the alleged pace you and that society you belong to believe she should be / could be running at

and if you can’t find empathy and understanding for her

keep

it

pushing

Please.

She does not have time for anymore negativity or foolishness

God sent her here on a mission

and she does not need your permission for…

anything

Understand that, simple human made of the same dust as she

Strong black woman with a dark streak of independence

Same black woman sometimes feels weak and dependent

Her value never changes

Priceless

forest of forgiveness

sowing seeds of forgiveness

in hopes of growing a forest of forgiving

God blows breathes of new life through the leaves

as the winds of change blow through our souls

we are free again

Holy Spirit soars within us

and that mountain is a mole hill again

scars remain but the range of motion is back

we move on

lingering not on what was

praising God for what is and what will be

remembering it’s okay to cry on occasion cause He collects those tears and maybe pours them over those seeds we are sowing

maybe

He hears heavy hearts and lightens them too

He heals heavy hearts and enlivens them too

sowing seeds of forgiveness

in hopes of growing a forest of forgiving

Almost doesn’t count

I almost filed down my fangs for you

I think this as I wipe the blood from my mouth and kiss your forehead

Feeling like Janie must have felt after she shot Teacake

Now your eyes are closed

And my eyes are watching God – praying I’ll been granted forgiveness for literally eating this man

I almost filed down my fangs for you

But when has almost ever counted?

Silence & Chatter

heart silence is louder then mind chatter

balance found between sight and sound

between light and profound

between words of wisdom and works of wisdom

heart silences the chattering mouth of mind

now body sleeps

as spirit creeps

into every

auricle and ventricle

cell and seam

free wheeling healing and making space for clarity’s gifts

heart silence is louder then mind chatter

As Is Lovin’

Not being loved and accepted as is, by myself and others, has taught me to love and accept people, situations, things, and me as is.

I know this isn’t always easy with all the standards, judgments, mask-wearing and blah blah blah swirling around us but;

To be loved just as you are is powerful.

To be loved just as you are is healing.

To be loved just as you are is Godly.

To be loved just as you are is sacred.

It’s interesting, it seems to me that ”as is loving” incites growth and expansion organically.

I stand in gratitude.

Thank you for loving me as I am.

Sketch by Me

She sat silently resting in the forest of her heart.

We can remain stuck in fear & holding on to the past, or we can use our past experiences to move confidently into the future. – Tanaaz

These words echoed throughout the canyons of her mind as strong winds of change began to blow in and around her.

Two cardinals flew by with a message.

When the roots are deep, there is no need to fear the wind. – Unknown

She stood faithfully and fearlessly in the forest of her own heart as her body began moving forward in time with the divine.

And so it is.

True love

I watched her in the mirror as she combed my hair with care.

She found this style on Pinterest, her drug of choice, and thought it would look good on us.

All the visions.

All the focus.

All the love.


She is what I have been looking for.

How had I not seen this before?

Our eyes met and she smiled and said, “ I am not going anywhere.” as she brushed down our baby hair.

”Good.”I replied thankfully.

I watched her in the mirror as she combed my hair with care.

Dear Moon,

My hands are freezing but I do not want to go inside. From your bright light, I can not hide. No need to lie, I love you, we all know it’s true. The way you move through the sky as you do…. oh… girl- I love you. I stutter, stop and stammer as you light up my life. Recharged I feel as I heal. This love – this love is real.

Thank you Lovely Luna.

Love,

A celestial student
