I close my eyes and breathe deeply. The lavender, the grass, the lilies, everything. The wind blows gently across it making it dance, Rippling the tall grass as it goes and blowing my hair along with it. It is peaceful here. My meadow. Quiet. Magical.

The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice. Too white for the blacks, too black for the whites. A constant feeling of you having to choose. Stop denouncing my identity and roots. Though I may have lighter skin, I am no less black within....

This is a love story. This is the story that led me here, writing to you about how and why I fell in love with poetry, and what I think you can find there, too.
