So many hearts

How many hearts can you grow in this temporary life?

Blessings come through

let go of the doubts that this world has given you
when the blessings knock on your door
remember that you are worthy and they are only meant for you
when you prayed for the blessings,  you opened yourself up
you surrendered your ego and bowed your head in submission
now when they knock,  hold your head up and open that door
accept them because you are meant to be

Family

Yes, I am from the diaspora
Yes, I am the girl from outside

BUT

Maybe I am becoming more aware of my own humanity
Maybe the loss of the one who birthed me makes me feel things more deeply
Maybe it is seeing my people express their pain through tears and poetry

Here I am in front of the screen
thousand of miles away
grieving with you all
