love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
.. i want to rewind time and go back to those carefree days when i danced to maxwell wearing a green african print dress and blue converse.
… i want to play my music loudly and know that i sound good.
… i want to walk out the front door of work and never look back.
… i want to speak my mind and say exactly how i feel.
… i want to not feel guilt or shame or wonder if i did something wrong or if i should have done something better.
… i want to be an equal and feel like it’s my own.
… i want to have a say about my life and my future, or at least remember that i do.
… i want to do everything when it’s due and not when it’s almost too late.
… i want to KNOW that i’m beautiful and attractive and not have to deduce it.
… i want to be secure and know that i’m not going to be swallowed whole.
… i want comfort and kisses even if i’m not sure why.
… i want to matter to myself.
