Self | Love Abundant




and i wonder what it means to

love myself unconditionally,

peeling off the layers of insecurities

i’ve learned to pile on.

to un


these internalizations

of self-blame, fear, and pain

buried deep



my thick hair sprouts


scars canvassed on yellow and brown.

when i look at my hands,

i see mommy, bah, ma mas, aunties, and uncles.


resistance etched in my palms.

love abundant.
