On Learning To Love My Blackness

Take time to fall in love with your flaws, your love handles or your freckles, your stomach or hair. Take time to fall in love with yourself, because when you do, you find it’s easy for others to love you too.

You Did Not Break Me

You watched me
Like a predator watches its prey
And when you finally caught me,
Struggle was useless.

Write It All Down

Write down your fears, your hopes, and your dreams; write about the things that set your soul on fire.
