Six years ago today I gave up a part of me and probably lost a part of my soul. Its incredible that such a big part of me is so hidden to so many people. From time to time I wonder what he/she would have been like, and what that world would look like today. I guess that takes me somewhere so far I’m afraid I’ll hate myself for never getting there.
I guess just remember today. Never forget today.
Black women wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see Black women. White women wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see women. White men wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see human beings.
The self proclaimed “healthy eating deli” across the street from my office just changed their menu and added 3 veggie sandwich/wrap options. Previously their only option was ordering a salad and begging* them not to add meat. OH HAPPY EATING.
*Legit, two times I said no chicken, looked away, and the man had thrown some chicken pieces in my salad.
I’d choose you. Every goddamned time.
