That kind of LOVE.
That “even though I’m mad at you I know you’ll still make an effort love”. That Love. Real Love.
I am not afraid, never was to begin with,
curious yes, but not afraid because,
Pain I have seen and heard
but I have never felt,
never felt the sting,
never has the venom flowed deep within my veins,
paralyzing my soul,
never have I felt its blade
slice through my limbs or
gunshots tear through my flesh,
never have I felt hunger pangs rip through my insides.
Never been whipped till my black turned blue,
never been kicked and punched till my bones went snap!
Daughter of exile by Wangari Ngugi, Kenyan poet.
Badu reportedly named her son “Seven” because “it’s a divine number which can’t be divided.”
