Hello • Goodbye (⚠️long post)
Sometimes moving forward means leaving things (or even people) behind. More than one year ago, I started posting my B&W poetry-infused photography on my feed. What started as a friend's push to participate in the @africanwriters one-month poetry challenge led to me sharing some of my musings on love, loss, feminism, racism, and relevant social issues. Honestly, I feel like I accomplished what I set out to do: to consistently share my writing, keep a somewhat cohesive feed, and touch at least one person with my message. .
And as you may (or may not) have noticed, I broke my pattern last week. I really wondered if there was even a point in sharing my musings anymore. But then I remembered my poem about #SabikaSheikh - the Pakistani girl on an educational exchange program in the U.S. who was killed in a school shooting by a White male terrorist. One of her grieving family members saw my poem and sent me blessings😭. Y'all it's interactions like this that continuously remind me that our words hold power, transcend national boundaries, and should never be wasted. .
So in that line, I do still plan to share my poetry here on IG, although I'll be doing it more sporadically and in a different format. As the last quarter of 2018 approaches, who else is excited about closing chapters and the start of new beginnings?
