of me as a bird. colorful. gracefully exploring the courage of towering mountains
& pregnant skies-
without clipping my wings in fear-
without cowering to the silhouettes of uncertainties, lurking.
in mockery of me. I think

of me as the sun, a colossal ball of brilliance. as the shimmering stars that breathe life
into a joyless night. & my body
embodies the fineness
of a full moon, the poise of a peacock &
the equanimity of water. I think

of me as a conqueror. El valiante-
the brave one.
slashing through manacles, glaring
in contempt. eyes, reeking of envy as
these scars garnish my skin. I think

of me as a blazing inferno, a soft blanket of hope
& love,
in its purest form…

but my head is a barn of stringed doubts.
I don’t know…

Maybe there is by any means you could get rid of me from that service? Thanks! 944567

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
    Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  5. This is the perfect web site for everyone who hopes to find out
    about this topic. You understand so much its almost tough to argue
    with you (not that I really would want to?HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been discussed for a long time.
    Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

  9. I rarely leave a response, however after
    looking at through a few of the responses on International Women's Day Series: "I Think" by Hameedah Aruwa |Praxis
    Magazine for Arts & Literature. I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it simply me or do a few of the comments come across like they are
    written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if
    you are posting on other social sites, I would like to follow
    you. Could you list of the complete urls of all
    your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
