The Duality of difficulties.

One day my stepfather Neil said “you and your mother…”. I understood what he meant. My mom didn’t like it when he said she was a black woman nurse but he often complimented her by saying this when she was home from work. She’s working now as a nurse-midwife. She started her midwife career when I was eight or nine years old. I love my mom. I love when people say to me “Ayesha you’re one of the coolest Black girls or women I know. You write such lovely poems, you are an excellent blogger, you have a great fashion sense too.” I’m writing a memoir. Compliments make life sweeter.
