Imagine if you didn’t have to try..

 

Imagine being unapologetically YOU.

Imagine expressing yourself the way you choose to

Imagine a life where the noise of society falls away like a drop in the ocean

Cavalierly walking the streets, barefeet

Imagine.

 

Imagine not having to prove yourself to be better than..

faster than…

prettier than..

smarter than…

A life without comparison, just imagine

 

Imagine being taught this song as a child, have it melodically impressed in your mind

Imagine the freedom and power bolting through your veins every single day

Stress free, worry free, make up free… HAPPY

One can only imagine

 

Imagine being influenced by what or who is in you..

Not having to try anything to make others like or accept you

Imagine being your own leader, creating your own norms

No jurisdiction, no laws, no chains, no saws

 

Stop imagining.

Be.

Dancing like everybody’s watching

I have decided to let go of the shackles of society.

I’ve been reminded of who I always wanted to be. I’ve found me and all that defines me. This started with conversations with my inner being.

I transcended from my body and found the true meaning of living. My passion for earthly things has  been ebbing away. My dissatisfaction of fading into the background has been chewing at me. I realised what it meant to be truly happy.

I have a light that streams from generations and I have been covering it because of distractions and hesitations.

No one knows the pain of dysfunction as a norm, manipulated in conversation, used as a pawn. Survival instincts, working hard from a young age, equipping your mind to be a pilgrimage.

From ashes  to gold is a  story untold of a girl destined for greatness. I claim my youth again,attain a rebirth, some sort of spiritual renaissance. With this renewed confidence I dance on tables like everybody’s watching. My body will say things, my movements will change beings and I will provoke thoughts and speak to the nations.

I will rebel against fossilized paradigms, photocopied ideas and binaries. I look to the heavens from whence cometh my help,I see the clear sky as a canvas, alive with creativity and new possibilities.

An Ode to Mandela

As I watch this video, I ball with tears

it has come to that time where we have to face our fears.

We know you might be on your way to Heaven’s portal

We kind of believed you are immortal.

Silly to assume this, old Black Pimpernel

But all I can do is wish well

You have served this country with passion, sacrifice, forgiveness and grace

even when you were left with bitterness in your mouth to taste

I thank you Tatu Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

as I wage my body weight on my patella

I pray to God to bless you and your descendants

You were our voice, our key, an unworthy defendant!
