I am less than whatever I’ve been accused of being, and I am more than what I’ve been given credit for, and the city is what I need it to be
You need to know you didn’t break me. I am stronger than I have ever been. I fight daily to assure that people know their value and their worth.
You may travel or dance or sing instead of writing through your pain, but know what you need and go about incorporating it into your gorgeous new story.
We are all deserving of life without fear... We want, we need, to get over the drive of hatred, and stop acting like ignorant children.
I don’t want to carry my heart around like a burden anymore. I long for connection and compassion and partnership.
