I love my ordinary life

I have had successes with this blog. I have had successes with my poetry including the wordsmith competition in 2016. I am going to try to pass the Praxis Core and become an Early Childhood teacher in the next three years. I have a poem in this month’s NAMI Mercer newsletter. I am a beautiful dark skinned woman. I have gorgeous eyes and I feel worthy of love and desire. I think about my childhood and how much other African American kids teased me about my color. I know it’s something every African American person adult or child with dark skin deals with from other members of their own race. I think of Cornelius and Toi the founders of Cave Canem. I love self-love in my 30s. There is a God this is the proof. There is no brokenness Jesus cannot heal. I’m the proof! I am thinking about next summer and getting myself a few new dresses, Coach flip flops and a pair of Burberry sunglasses on ebay!
