Black Girl, Shine

I am learning how to accept

that taking up space

in the rooms that I enter

can be nourishing

and generous

and okay.

I am learning how to practice

the balance between

honoring my gift of listening

and offering others

my rumble of laughter

with rambles of reflections

about dreams, annoyances, and mundane things.

And I am learning how to respect

both the beauty of being still

and the radiance of moving and dancing through life,

not hungry for any permission.
