The soul/spirit is the energy to be read.
There sits the all or nothing.
If you look into their eyes and commit to understanding
the intricate scent of their skin,
the stars will appear in all their glory
as the Sun sits high in the sky —
and the Universe sighs in unison with every breath you take.
The ancestors will whisper a louder ‘Ase’
watching on proudly as we break free from the beautification of everything. The whole story is not just beautiful,
it is many layers of fascinating, gritty, devastating.
Let your story breathe through your skin,
in your eyes — I want to read you unabridged.
If you commit to reading me too,
that is the bridge of interdependence
where we meet on this hard journey and connect forevermore.
Unravelling our secrets, exhaling the vulnerability inside our chests,
standing eye to eye with everything there ever was and is
to know about this whole dark world.
At last, the struggle will be less.
