The Complexities of Me:
Just a Random Poem
I’m a Holistic Nutrition Educator who LOVES foods that are traditional to the environment that nourished me as a child, AKA, Southern Foods. I do know however, that they may not be good for my body. Sometimes they are at odds with my “Holistic Nutrition” Teachings, but they’re always nourishing to my Soul.
I love wine but I don’t like being drunk.
I LOVE and EMBRACE diversity, but honestly I thrive more around progressive Black Folks who love themselves as much as community.
I am the truest description of Ambivert. I can network like a “Pro,” talking, laughing and engaging in productive conversation till that moment happens. I shift, I need to be alone, and I will unapologetically leave an event to regroup.
Growing up between a Black and White world, I very often felt like I was being tugged back and forth in a game of “Tug of War.” Am I Black, like the “One Drop Rule” describes me to be? Or am I “White?” After years of grueling self work I made a choice. My Spiritual answer is, “I Am the I AM.” My core true answer is, I am a “Biracial Black Woman” and PROUD!
I vibe with Ledisi’s “Pieces of Me.” I am far from what society defines me. My character is much more complex. You can’t necessarily see me, if you look within the lens of your societal definitions.
I’m Humanity. Period!
