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

Rooting for revival

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.

Turtle power

My feet dangle off the side of the slightly wet footbridge. Large lush leaves in every hue of green gently sway in the lightly blowing winds. My ears enjoy the symphony of bird songs. Here I am taking a moment to stop along the path per usual. My turtle friend swims by reminding me to slow down, take my time, and be here now.

Slow down mind.
Slow down time.

[found this in an email to myself from 2014]

She rode thru old spaces
Thinking of all those places
The words that fell from faces
Their weight had held her down
Horrified that she would drown
She now realized that  fight she fought
And the fucked up shit it brought
Those actions were the offspring of fear
Amanayea came with the light & made it clear
Fear is Darkness meddling in your mind
Awakened to Truth she put fear’s ass in line
She refused to focus on the fuckedupness of life
the constant replaying of perceived strife
She rode thru old spaces
Thinking of all those places
The words that fell from faces
They were never holding her down-
They were building her up so she could wear the crown

You have Time Woman

Time tells tales of strength and weakness

Eternal longevity

Tick-tocking seconds and minutes fall off clocks that aren’t real

Time tells tales of love and loss at zero costs

Eras and periods constantly give way to new days, infinitely wrapping around the neck of forever like the perfect pashmina

Time tells tales of legends and myths sailing by on ships of selfless and selfish acts

Dancing in storms of self-created anguish and angst and passion and pleasure

Wonder women and wandering women finding their way through time

Time tells tales and I am here to listen with my infinite ear
