Praise is an easy veil for danger to hide behind.
Dedicated to all the young women in my life.
Losing my religion has complicated my relationship with my parents.
What does it mean to stay when all I’ve ever done is run?
In a world that profits from your insecurity, joy is a radical act.
Am I afraid to cut my hair because I won’t be pretty anymore? Yes.
I’m no longer apologizing for being extra.
Funny how powerful is the highest compliment for a man,
and a liability for women.
It is about the pay, yes,
But it’s more about my worth.
We don’t lead by what’s between our legs.
