My own words healed me…

A few months back, when I simply could not write, I began to read my blogs from years past. I realized that reading my own words started to heal me.

Shards…

SCARS

I have a few physical scars. Some obvious to the naked eye, others covered by cloth. I have many more scars that are unseen. I call them soul scars. Little divots that have keloid.

I’m still brown.

I have come to realize that even if I met all of the markers of success, i.e., education, wealth,  and housing. I am still brown. I was raised in The Bronx, NY.

You are safe…

The other day I read the funniest tweet ever… “been quarantined with my wife for four weeks now.

I couldn’t help but think how … More You are safe…
