Sense of Self

I was called an enigma several times before but I don’t even know if that’s accurate. Meeting me, knowing me…you’ll find soon, I just don’t want to be boxed in. I want to be successful but I don’t want people pigeon holding me to some idea of who Kenasha should be and what she should do. I’m more than my race, more than my sex but I can still champion for both. I see how people who make it or even just local folk, how part of them is sliced and put on pedestal and suddenly they can’t be nothing but that. Who cares that people are multidimensional, that they are flawed. In fact if they are flawed, everything they worked for is suddenly tarnished. They aren’t viewed in the totality that is their existence but isolated moments. So we are never really loving someone for WHO they are but WHAT we want them to be or what they feel is appropriate to show, what will make them feel accepted. Then we wonder why people say love is so hard today, this idea of perfection is a disease. I’m down for understanding people, even the stuff I don’t like lol. I hope in 2014 we embrace the idea of IDENTITY, a SENSE of SELF. This complex not neat but universal thing we can all achieve.
It really doesn’t have to be this way…

Happy birthday to my childhood crush (yeah I said it lol), often misunderstood but he really had a great philosophy for all of America. He deserved a holiday too, he was not as militant as he was painted.
