I can’t find my pen..
It’s been 30 minutes, I settled for a pencil
Why was I so set on writing with a pen?
Earlier, I was depressed She. At least I felt joy momentarily. Dear God, today I write to you
It’s so obvious
Faith runs deep.
She wears your cross.
They crucify She. They crucify your children.
Forgive them father
I wrote another line, but She erased it.
I never want to speak again.
I’ll dance and write instead
I’ll bless them in my thoughts and head
Forgive my enemies
The enemies of She are the enemies of most High, our King.
Defined by She.
She’s your shunned luv child.
The mission of Art for Social change is to cultivate healing through creativity. I believe creative outlets are healthy forms of expression that copes with stress levels and unique experiences. Through activities such as yoga, dance, music, creative writing, and more, we can establish a safe space for community amongst one another. We are aware of stress and trauma, and learn further. However, we are also aware that these experiences have affected their identity, but not potential. How can we create the scars and pain into something beautiful? Art. We are bringing pride in the sorrows because these are survivors, and their voices and stories matter. As a yogi, dancer, writer, and student I find myself in a position to give and demonstrate solidarity because I myself am an individual who resonates and connects with gender and sexual oppression. Creativity is a mental exercise that re aligns the mind, body, and spirit because it requires consciousness to delve into layers of self. Our experiences are unique, and immeasurable, but we can establish change in our community through humility and creativity to move forward and remind ourself of our great strides through Art. Art is holistic in communal environments, especially when we encourage individuals to seek comfort in their emotions and experiences through creativity together, collectively. The beauty is every individual is creative! In order to harness and manifest a sense of freedom, we must individualize and discover creative preferences and abilities. The mission is to amplify the use of art and creativity, a cultural capita, to resonate back to our core human self. We research, but more importantly listen for the several avenues of creativity that exist for individuals to engage in.
(I hope this is sufficient! Let me know if you need anything else always. I apologize for the delay unexpected Memorial Day plans)
