So many times that it’s taken awhile for me to identify as being a Black person. With my inner eye I thought of myself as other or nothing. Just a person with dark skin who could- with great observation, listening skills, and charm, could maneuver through any situation and learn any ones background. Good part of that was I gained many friends with different backgrounds and from many parts of the world. Bad part is that its still difficult for me to merge my Blackness with the things I love without getting the side eye.
To just be done for awhile. To not really have much thought or want of anything because nothing sounds good.
I hope so.
