Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”


It’s hard for me to read my own words. I am not a big sharer of feelings, so if I am open about things it’s because it’s very important to me. Sharing and being vulnerable is a great thing but it also has opened me up to a lot of pain, even emptiness. I think of deleting this page every day, as if I can backspace feelings.

Sometimes writing the words feel cathartic and freeing; then, it feels like a eulogy for my heart. On a good day, I can see that I’ve continued to be resilient and loving and strong, no matter how long it took me to come back to myself. On a bad day, it sounds like self-pity and despair. I guess some days it’s all of those things wrapped up in one…the good, the bad, and the ugly truths we hide to save face.

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
