Inspired by “Where I’m From” by George Ella Lyon
I am from magickal candles from incense and sage smoke filled rooms.
I am from the yellow victorian on the path with peace and tranquility of a Goddess brew.
I am from the sunflowers that follow the sun
The red rose bush filled with thorns.
I’m from brutal honesty and loud, happy melanated skin tone.
From Shady Grove and Junk Yard Dog.
I’m from workaholics and intelligence and from overwhelming love, energy, and happiness.
I’m from you’re amazing and magickal and heaven in the form of a young Queen.
I’m from don’t go to sleep with negativity and start each day new.
I’m from Illinois and Indigenous blood. Bar-b-que, vegan and soul food.
From divided bloodlines; some African, some Haitian, and some black with two fistfull of white.
An abandoned father and mother, her spirit so strong loving and bright. My step-father, the rose that grew in the concrete jungle.
Life without them reminds me of the Black American struggle.
Inner-G inside of me, pulsating through my aura. Beaming from my inner light like the moon shining in the wee hours of the night.
I am from energy—-Inner-G
