You probably know what you think you know.

I remember me

I am realising more and more that I am no different from the things and the people I admire.
I am drawn to them because they are in fact some of me.
I realise this now because I am finally remembering how to be that some.

Your truth…

Share your truths.

You can save lives with all of your you.

 

Dying. It’s what we do

Our bodies have carried us through all of our deaths and rebirths.
They are our graveyards before they are finally housed in graveyards.
A heaven before their dust finally returns to heaven – whatever your kind of heaven may be.

We spend our whole lives dying,
losing parts of ourselves every single day. and minute. and second.
For better and for worse.

We have been dying for so long.

Love

Umdali loves me
Amadlozi wami love me too

All is fair in love and love.

An ode to your love history

Honour
wombs you passed through
hands that worked for you
hearts that prayed for you
souls that hoped for something like you.

Honour
the entire history of love that made you.

‘No’ is a full story

I’m learning the unapologetic ‘no’
I’m learning to drop it on hard ground
bringing no cushions for its fall
so that it smashes when it lands
and all of its pieces are heard.

I’m learning the unapologetic ‘no’
the one that is only followed by a period
.
I’m learning not to clothe it with reason
or adjust its voice
so it stands on its own
with freedom. in nudity
unburdened. unashamed

I have lived the violence of ‘yes’
now it’s time for peace
now its time for care
so I’m learning the unapologetic ‘no’
