I am. // I know it's hard to read so see caption. // Keep Me Wild is available now in Amazon. // artist @wolfwednesdays //
My mother wished
my skin was almond milk
instead of nutmeg.
I didn't even know
I was born with slaves blood
until so many people began to recognize my mothers lies on my skin
and I knew it was true.
I am black.
I am Latino,
flames and colorful blood,
the cloth that made me canvas.
But I was not allowed to bleed.
"Don't cry" she said.
"Don't ever let them see you cry"
as I wept at her feet
not understanding why she was telling me this
when I only wanted her to see.
I am white
the one vein I could claim.
I was as white as 90% of the bodies
I walked the high school halls with
but no one wanted to see.
I was a shade of unfamiliar.
"The girl you don't bring home to your parents" she said.
I am Native American
with a thirst for alcohol
that will surely kill me.
It killed her father
and eventually killed her too
but before I was the age of 12
she said, "Sure, take a sip". I am Italian
with an unhealthy desire for carbs,
bread and pasta and wine,
that cover my Latin hips and black thighs
and make me more undesirable.
"No one will love you
if you keep eating."
If I keep eating who I am?
Will I die mother?
What will happen
if I swallow myself whole
and tell the world that it is good?
Empty me & fill me with magic, light, & love ✨💖🙏🏼 Let my art be my purge. Let the color bring me to the color of my own soul. Let the marks be my surrender and empty my mind. Let my art guide me to my heart, who I am, always 👩🏽🎨💋
Mmmmm this needs blue berries, not sweet enough for me and might be better on soy milk as it's more like a juice and less like a smoothie. #smoothie#coconutwater#wholefoods#whole#almonds#cauliflower#spinach#banana first time using a prepackaged smoothie, can't figure out if this is more wasteful with packaging than throwing out excess fruit or fruit that may also be packed in plastic and not frozen and may spoil. It could be best to buy from a cafe that doesn't sell in styrofoam. #vegan#veganbreakfast
"it was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole" -rupi kaur ✨🖤🌱
