Dealin’

Sonia’s been talking about all that

all that storytelling about being black and bad

all that knowledge woven in the politics of

dealing with one’s self and

I’ve been thinking about what

it really be about when Sonia tells me

that i am a black women who hasn’t meditated

on my self and only myselves

i’m really thinking about what Sonia is preachin’

through her sweet monologs and sultry lullabies

that tell me my blackness is worth more than a

glimpse, more than a shame-filled, passionless

fuck.

so I am really thinking about what Sonia has got me thinking about:

that I ought to do more

to deal with all of this,

all this blackness

and all that lays beyond it.

Sonia most definitely has me thinking about

dealin’.

Well, I've always had a passion for writing. I would describe myself as a feminist, a womanist and a humanist. Poetry is something I've developed a great passion for. Apart from that, I also spend time reading...although this might make me come about sounding like an introvert, I still like to think of myself as an extrovert! I love making new friends and meeting new people. I hope this blog allows others to share and enjoy my work and hopefully share their views and opinions about various issues :)
