a collaborative conversation Dear one, you are still a child. Don't look at this in terms of a maturity level judged by the world around you. This has nothing to do with your image but your relationship to Me. You are My child, ever-learning, ever-experimenting. You are a scientist, testing new hypotheses daily. Do not … Continue reading The Simple Heart
It's raining, it's pouring I threw on my sweats and hoofed it Out to see the day, headphones in ears What did I do with all of these years Internal speculations got me growing, got me breathing Tryna turn my mind off and start living, just start being Self care can be exhausting … Continue reading 12.17.2015
