Yep...I'm piggybacking off of the BET special "Black Girls Rock"...but this is a necessary thing to aver! This looks like it might be part blog and part poem, so maybe this is a plog. lol or boem. Either way...this is why I rock!
I rock because I was born to a woman who rocks. I rock, because well...I'm Kali.
My name rocks...in 7 different languages. I'm a genius, I am black energy, I am the creator/the destroyer, I am a flower, I am a singing lark, I am the child closest to God, I...am beautiful. I rock, because...even though I'm Narcoleptic...I'm EPIC. I love BIG. I think BIG. My blessings are BIG. I rock because I've fallen...and stood up again. because, I've prayed when afraid... I am fearful, yet... I feel the fear now...and do it anyway. I'm afraid to travel alone, but I do. I'm afraid to love again...but, I'm ready to dive in. I may say I'm tired...but, I still try. I rock, because...I see the best where the worst is expected... I find the silver lining with or without clouds... I believe when all else fails... I smile when tears are on the verge of streaming... I laugh...hard. I rock, because when my mind says cuss... my heart says breathe in... breathe out...and reach for tact and compassion... ...place it in the hands of God. I rock, Sun-Sat 365 when I'm sick when I'm mean when I'm being spoiled when I'm giving more than I have... Yes... I rock, for so many reasons... and for no reason at all...I rock.
I'm a lover AND a fighter...I like the folks most don't. I walk to the beat of a drummer....who isn't REALLY in the band, but got the best beats. I am big on love..."I see you" where you're at...hopefully this blog helps you to see me, as well. Either Love me...or leave me alone!
Having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. - a quote by Dinah Craik
