I am in a season where I am aware of blackness Brown skinned flesh unpacking in glaring white institution Bound By thoughts By words By thinking of words to the degree that I am constricted Tongue tied, hands restricted by overwhelming streams of consciousness I’d *almost* rather be sleeping because dreams block out death block carnage block bullshit, toxic politic and wondering if my black life is seen as less than that of beasts or the unborn I am awake and breathing mouth wide open... Read more

I wrote this piece a few weeks back but I’ve had a number of conversations since I ‘penned’ this that have made very clear to me that this is for so many of you who are in a place of transition.

  I had a conversation with my best friend last night. After hearing me gripe and bitch and moan about something that was troubling me,  my bestie said something that gave me pause. She noted that it wasn’t problem A or situation B that was the issue but we were entering a territory where I don’t trust God. I could’ve gone on about how of course I trust God.

Eyes heavy, Spirit fed So different Pause I think about my past Passion, Fire, Prophetic Voice Having no true north Effective for the season but ungrounded See children speak from sources passed onto them Saying foolish, feeble things because secondhand, threadbare theology is what they put on Now I see how ill-fitting those old garments were Because He who provides is dressing me Spirit of the Living God My personal tailor Lifting hems, Dropping waists, Adjusting the seams So this... Read more
