it would be easier if
she had hit me
to explain the
coldness
criticism
dictation
moodiness
meanness
it would be easier if
she had hit me
to explain the
anger
hatred
refusal
non-support
controlling
skin shows bruises but
spirit does not
body yields blood but
soul only cries
broken bones prove but
not shattered hope
words as
fists and knives
but lack of them
can mock your life
escaped with my damage
all on the inside
 

true love

beautiful and so painful. this should be a wake up call to all. we need to watch what we say and how we speak to others. it may cause them pain that we can't even begin to imagine. thanks for the eye opener.

This a profound insight. For some only pain feels real.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
