I wanted to say that this country saved me.

But, in actuality, I saved myself.

Looked down upon because of my dark skin…

Laughed at because of my individuality…

Judged because of my choices and lack of religion…

 

Today,  I walked down the street and I sang a song out loud.

And…

what do you know about courage and bravery?

I know that I am courageous and I am brave and I am proud and I am different.

Embracing bravery like a newborn child.

I’ve never been so proud.

It began to rain and the rain kissed my skin and my skin absorbed her as if

she were a god.
