He asked, ‘What’s left?’


She was everything 

If you asked her how old she was?

She would say, ’39 and holding’

On my birthday

I walked up to her casket


As realized that I was turning 39 years old the same day 

Of course her death was inter-connected with my birth 

Of course my birth was inter- connected with her death

We have always been one   

He asked, ‘What’s left?’

Can you begin again?

I realized I needed a fresh start

Spirit gave me a new name: Free Woman

I went on a healing journey to embody my name

A sacred quest for freedom

Ownership of my power in the face of inheritance

At the sites of Slavery/ Genocide/ Femicide 

In America / Africa / Latin America 

I meditated | prayed | opened my heart to healing

For years…


I asked Spirit, ‘How do you love after betrayal?’

The words came on the wind:

What’s left?

I thought for a long time

Spoke to my intangible inheritance:


I spoke out loud:


The wind blew through the trees

The limbs nodded in agreement

The ancestors rejoiced

And then I …

Danced the dance of freedom
