i am losing myself, forever.

i wanted to be a daughter of a revolutionary, a soul sister to a bad brotha, a mother of all things " i'm black and i'm proud."

i use to tell myself i wasn’t good enough to be a writer, that what i had to say just wasn't as good as what you had to say.

or he say, or she say.

i attended an art school for four years, sitting in the front of the class, losing myself.

now i am in college, sitting in front of the class, and this is the first writing since,

and i know i am losing myself forever.
