nw: i am mine.
before i am ever anyone else's. just because someone desires you, it does not mean that they value you. desire is the kind of thing that eats you and
leaves you starving. even if you are a small forest surviving off of moon alone, your light is extraordinary.

The truth is
you were born for you.
you were wanted by you.
you came for you.
you are here for you.
your existence is yours.

make sure they have fallen in love with your spirit. first. your body. second.
i will tell you, my daughter of your worth not your beauty every day. (your beauty is a given. every being is born beautiful). knowing your worth can save your life. raising you on beauty alone you will be starved. you will be raw. you will be weak. an easy stomach. always in need of someone telling you how beautiful you are. – emotional nutrition.

decolonization requires acknowledging. that your needs and desires should never come at the expense of another’s life energy. it is being honest that you have been spoiled by a machine that is not feeding you freedom but feeding you the milk of pain. – the release. — Nayyirah Waheed
