I'm a creative writer, non-rhymer, storyteller, and author. I write free verse and narrative literary composition.
Every time I look at my childhood pictures, I would say,
"I will not let the world change her."
I don't want to change the color of my skin and
hair, as well as how my face and body are formed.
I want to see how they naturally are...
They reveal a history, the race and roots, the descent,
where the person is coming from—without
having asked, and I'm weirdly amazed by that.
I don't even want to put on makeup unless needed
for some occasions. This is what I am and not what
the world influences me to be.
This is how I admire my humanness.
This is how I admire humanity—and this is my statement.
