We have to reshape our own perception; how we view ourselves. Focusing less on the aesthetics but on who we are as human beings...that makes you beautiful. We need to step up as women and take the lead.

As Black men and women, we must love each-other into loving ourselves.
Because the world has told us that we are unlovable.

There is no
recipe
for happiness.
No amount of kisses,
farmer markets,
cups of tea,
or core-shaking laughs
will fix you.
You have to save yourself.
You have to
fight
for that peace.

the pressure on first generation children of immigrants 

to prove that you are indeed proof that parents’ sacrifice was worth it

is something that many Americans will never understand
