pt. 5

Been thinking about the power of reflection a lot lately // how at times I look in the mirror and feel most in my body; and other times I am beyond surprised by the vessel that carries my experiences out in the world

Been thinking a lot about the magic and resilience of femmes lately // how it takes power to continue to be queer and femme and feel seen

Been feeling heavy lately // like the weight of my 25 years around the sun has been a burden; but it's not, it's a gift that I continue to uplift and hold space for

Trying to find a semblance of peace in this muddled world // taking all my obstacles and hanging them in front of the mirror, to know them is to overcome them // noticing the walls around my heart and finding space to let them down
