Favorite Quote:
"I say, it's in the reach of my arms, the span of my hips, the stride of my step, the curl of my lips. I'm a woman, phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that's me." -Maya Angelou

Cut out your cinder eyes for me,
With nine silver swords,
And place them
Beneath my pillow;
I want to be able to sleep again.

Our story is what
Keeps me up
Through dawn and dew.
And I can’t justify this life,

Or lack thereof.

Tell me how to move forward,
And how to believe.

Show me you’ve arrived
And I’ll catch you,
All but your eyes.
