Surviving Ambiguity

Living a life worth more than 140 characters and a photo. I am a daughter, sister, partner, friend, and student.




Excuse me, but why are people giving Miley Cyrus flak for her trying to twerk? Is she performing it incompetently, or is this another “cultural appropriation” issue?

Well what you’re seeing here is not twerking. But most (black) people are (justifiably) upset with her because she’s yet another white person profiting off of black American hip-hop culture while actual black people are simultaneously shamed and called thugs and hoes and unintelligent for the exact same behavior/trends. So it’s pretty much cultural appropriation to a T.

And her lack of ass makes her incompetent.

You dont understand what being a sister means.

You dont understand what it was to see

you dont understand what it was

you dont understand what it

I  dont know how to express to you that i fear disappointing you

Yet, i fear not loving me….

Complex simplicity

This should be the dream

of every teen  or in between

However instead of new orleans humidity  breaking out my skin

causing my hair to frizz

i have you

 pointing out my every flaw

i know its love

but it doesnt sink into my self esteem

as a stone I should use to build

but another stone thrown

with me as a target

my sensitive soul

critiqued for being insensitive

hopeless dreamer

that lacks a back bone

probably because its wrapped around my neck

while my dangles

am i preparing for my ballet solo

or death

Am I?

Who am I?

 I am starting fresh

I am Starting from a hole so deep

I can barely see the light that  peaks over

Peaks over just to say hey

Hey, How are you?

Change doesnt

Today it sank in that my first love is married to the girl he cheated on me …. It shouldn’t sting but it does….

Last time we talked he called me cold….. Maybe I am cold….
