I Ask Mama Africa for Safety Upon My Return

The greatest gift I can ever ask of mama Africa before I return is for safety. I want to return as I am-queer, spiritual, radical-woman, mind-free, spirit bigger than my body, without fear, birthed on American soil. I’ve done well without you-your daughters, my grandmothers, mothers, mothers held it down. Taught me the incredible, unconditional gift of love. How to heal from earth and each other. How to worship ancestors, cultivate every space my black touches. In love. Ashe -Gracie
