there are things that i believe.love is one of them.
so is black and white photography, raw, organic foods, hand holding, truth telling, sisterfire! i believe in sisterhood and jalylah. i believe in my mother's love, patience and diligence. i believe in god/desses. i believe we always, always KNOW what we know. i believe that monthly menses are blessings. i believe in tears and salt rubs and confessions. i believe that i'm beautiful.
and that magic is beneath the surface, moving in subtle places with no name or memory. i believe i've been jealous of you. i believe i create what i live. i believe in the power of my consciousness. i believe life is a gift. i believe crystal is one of tbe most beautiful, positive people i have ever known in my whole, entire life.
i believe that you love me. i believe that i needed to learn something important from erica. i believe that i pause in rememberance everytime i write her name. i believe in righteousness and liann and niani and nicole. i believe in the village. i believe that i will make them proud.
i believe that i will be fully beloved and lover to someone other than myself. i believe in sanctuary. and you. and your vision. i believe my ancestors love me and look out every time i pause between inhaling and exhaling.
i believe that sometimes your love makes me shy and i want to hide. i believe in the rainbow parachutes that i lifted up and ran beneath with my kindergarden class. i believe in stars and my soulmate sister *piper*sunshine*colemanscurry*. i believe in the yinyang years and spirituality, before and after it was trendy.
i believe in your healing apart from me. i believe we are all one.
