Voice Of Eternity. (currently editing)
I bet you know exactly how she feels; trapped; I bet you know that depilating feeling of sobriety. I'm certain you know it. I can tell.
I bet you look at the colour of your skin and you try not to be one of those girls; the ones that claim to be 'woke' because they channel their self-loathing into others or the ones who never wanted to be it at all. I know it. I can tell.
I know you look at the colour of your skin and pretend it doesn't mean anything; you hide behind lies such as "you're just black" and there's nothing to it; such lies with no dimension keep you in your place, they suppress yourself, they refine you, they strangle you. I know this. I can tell.
Don't worry. This is one for you and I; we don't know where we belong because we don't belong. You're secret is safe with us.
And this one is for all the black girls like Harriet. I won't say a thing, but if you can relate to her, I'll know and your secret will be safe with me.
You, Black Queen, are special. Like Shange wrote, "your love is too magical to have thrown back on your face."
After all, I am a black woman's lover. As broken as she may be, her love is too magical to have thrown back on her face.
Read this; this is one is for Queens like yourself. I went through it with her so I know what you're going through - don't let pain and fear rule you.
You can be like Harriet; lead with conviction, speak with a voice of eternity.
Follow the love story of Harriet and Damien and the challenges they face.
