Just when I thought the weight
of holding up the world would crush me…
her breath whispered up against me
spirited titanium into my backbone

realized I had two sets of hands
a second syncopated heart
a mind doubled in its power and force
— a soul double helixed—
a better part of me I hadn’t seen 
fully
whose presence I now felt
completely

didn’t even have to look for her
she was where she had always been:
Everywhere that was life-giving
in everything giving me life.

In the quietude of my ego now put to sleep
the world seemed lighter
because I could hear in the pauses
between our alternating heartbeats
a truth I’d forgotten:

WE were holding our world up

Twogether. — Àdísà, Ejiogbe (One) (A Grown Folks Poem)

I think all theories are suspect, that the finest principles may have to be modified, or may even be pulverized by the demands of life, and that one must find, therefore, one's own moral center and move through the world hoping that this center will guide one aright. I consider that I have many responsibilities, but none greater than this: to last...and get my work done. —James Baldwin, Notes of a Native Son

R u the king or queen of anxiety? Do u already know all the worst possible outcomes 2 reaching 4 ur dreams? R most of ur choices made in fear? Do u worry about things going wrong even when things r going right?
Well...relax, dammit. Breathe, meditate, pray, do chi qong, try weed or get booty or something. I promise, ur life will b so much sweeter if u chill out alil. U might even end up making some decisions based on what u really want insteada what u really don't. Keep the receipt on that anxiety & take that crap back 2 the dollar tree.
