I DESERVE TO LIVE NOT JUST SURVIVE

I DESERVE TO LIVE AND NOT JUST SURVIVE

I DESERVE TO LIVE AND NOT DIE

I WAS BORN TO DO MUCH MORE THAN STAY BLACK AND DIE

I WAS CREATED FOR MUCH MORE THAN TO PAY TAXES AND DIE

I deserve to live

I deserve to live

I deserve to live

To live and not die

for struggle cannot last always.

Hell is not forevermore.

I come to a re-memory

or  rather a

remembrance

that I can transmute

my own pain and sorrow.

I am my own alchemist.

I didn’t beat trauma’s ass 

to not deserve or enjoy 

this current period

this current moment.

I deserve and I am worthy

of all things

even when I feel

tender or broken.

I am still both

soft and strong.

I am still worthy

I deserve to live and not

just survive even as I 

repair and regenerate.

I deserve it all:

The good food

good friendships

good partnerships

good sex

good pleasures

good health

good money

good love

good juju

good spirituality

To be at ease

To be comfortable

In my space and in my spirit.

I am an alchemist.

I have the ability

to change that which

that was meant

originally for bad

To gOOd.

I deserve to live and not die

not on account of

where I have been

through or where 

I am headed

but because of my

inherent worth and goodness

and because I said so and I believe it

So it is.

A remembrance to live again

And live fully.

It is okay to enjoy yourself.

Savor the moment.
