Through these melanated eyes I stare back at myself

I am not sure I know what I see

The rug has been snatched from underneath my feet

The moment I realized I knew nothing prior to the transatlantic slave trade

The moment I realized I didn’t know myself

I didn’t know the power that runs through my veins

I didn’t know of the arsenal of Gods I walk with daily

I didn’t know that my strengths were also my self imposed limitations

I didn’t know how much confusion laid dormant in my subconscious mind

I felt this burning sensation rise up in my solar plexus

Release hit me like the first time I told myself brown skin was ugly

Everything I thought I knew was a lie

But even on the road to finding my truth I still feel a little lost

I know that this is only temporary

And in due time I will come to know harmony

I am beginning to remember

But I’m not yet ready to fly

My first time ever doing something like this. Not sure how amped I’d be to do one again of this caliber. But regardless it was an amazing project and an amazing day with wonderful people. Let me know what you guys think!

Uncertainty

Walking in a state of doubt can be toxic

Fears favorite assailant, uncertainty

Chest pains as grotesque thoughts of failure tip toe across our feeble minds

Death just seems so much easier than life

Living in a state of uncertainty

Curiosity peeks as small visions confirm our light

Although darkness is truly all we desire

Stomach tied in knots as we process every single moment of what could be

That does not have to be

Giving life to ill situations with our thoughts

Uncertainty has so much room to grow

Living in a state of uncertainty

Surrendering myself to the plan of my creator

But the poison still flows

Testing faith

Breaking down and diminishing any solid foundation

Ignorance can be more powerful than omniscience

Because knowing is just so much better than uncertainty

Living in a state of uncertainty
