I Danced 

Last night I danced. I haven’t danced in a long time and that made me forget how amazing of a dancer I am. I slay on the dance floor and it heals me, it revitalises me. It allows me to say hello to my soul, it connects me to a higher energy, i feel the universe when I move. 

Last night I shined bright like the diamond I am. The diamond you are. Last night I gave thanks to my talent. I gave gratitude to the universe, to life.

Dance is the reason I have a dream, a passion, the reason why I love music, the reason why words are so important to me. My euphoria. The thing I know will never let me down, my “Kanye” mode.

Last night I gave thanks to Lebo Mathosa’s existence. For the beauty she shared with us, for allowing me to allow myself to be inspired and motivated by such a soul. Last night I was untouchable because I believed in my abilities, I remembered who I am. 

Last night dance allowed me to live. I danced because I am life.

Love Reconstruction 

It’s always hard to let go of something, especially matters of the heart. The journey to realising that something is bad for you no matter how much you want it is absolutely, strikingly painful. 

You feel like you’re falling apart and you have no control over it. It feels like your very existence is being threatened. Loving can hurt beyond justification, beyond comprehension to a point where you don’t see your future options.

And as much as it is easy to say “don’t have expectation and just love”, being loved by someone you love is pure euphoria. As much as you can be happy single because you understand that happiness should be a choice you make to yourself alone, nothing compares to being loved by the right person.

Love is beautiful but when it hurts, it rips your very joy for other things. You loose a sense of interest, your sense of individuality…and you stay there longer than necessary because your heart needs that healing period, reconstruction.

My Own Skin

My own skin… I take beautiful pictures of myself.

I stare down at them and select which I want to show the world.

I pick 2 or 3 and compare them against each other,

Till I find one that I believe most beautiful side of myself.

Take it social media and further compare it to the filters and pick one that I believe enhances the looks more and make it more beautiful.
Last night I was posting a picture  of myself again and again went  through all these steps.

As I got to the last step I remembered something.

That I am beautiful just as I am.

I remembered I’ve always loved my skin without the filters.

I remembered that I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I remembered that my skin is golden.

-Black Child-

It’s  not even about racism anymore.

No black child, it’s about self-hate.

It isn’t about the oppression or apartheid.

No black child, you were brainwashed way before freedom was ever sold as an idea to you.

It isn’t about the education you received from the history book about a fair skinned man.                                                 No black child, no one wrote about your inventions.

Who’s gonna tell your stories when the rich pigments have been manufactured to non existence?

When the texture of your hair is a myth told in comedies.

Who’s gonna teach your kids to love and embrace and be proud of their heritage?   When you do not wanna carry the genetics in your blood anymore.

Why is it cool to you to NOT be “black”?   Why is it cool to NOT be loud anymore and sing like our mothers used to?

Why are you so afraid to be different?

Why are you so ashamed to be black?

You’ve come so far and your existence is still so potent but you are so set of going extinct.

What is it that you hate about yourself so much?

Can’t you see they’re using you against yourself.

You are fighting with the mirror because you believe that’s your enemy.

Our forefathers did not fight so we could forget them.

So that we could bury ourselves with them. Why are you so afraid to make noise and be black…proudly?

They push you…..push back, you have the same strength, don’t let them convince you you’re nothing without them.

Do not shatter the mirror, shatter the thoughts of inadequacy.

You matter – you are part of the human race.

You are human, do not allow them to treat you any less.

Do not accept extinction.
