Turning Tables

Dear Love,

I See you are generous to many

Just not to one

Its trending notoriously, how you hit the weak harder and the strong lesser.

I accept you are some type of common good I struggle to obtain

The price is high after tasting freedom

Female empowerment comes with an opportunity cost, the world is yet to encounter

And so the blame is not on you Love

The more I feel empowered

the longer is my list

I won’t bother chasing you

Instead I’ll sit right here

I’ll wait for you to choose me

I’ll watch how you stumble and fall

I’ll turn the tables around

You’d think I’m bitter by now

But I’m soft and sweet and unique

Catch me if you can..

Walking on Egg Shells

Days after the setbacks, the Bruce’s, the thickness in the airs

Positivity becomes a choice

Life is a choice.

And If you’ve ever had to

Set foot outside your comfort zone

Then you know this;

Egg shells don’t break your bones

You will carry your skin like elaborated embroidery.

Soul congealed, indurated, woke

And apted you rise

I rest my case
