Softly Hardly, Light Heavy
Whomever enter into this room
What you speak in this room

Nurturing the Seeds of our future
They, our mothers, determine what will come
It is the results of their best efforts

My First Memory

I haven’t succumb, I haven’t been number one
I have sought positivity, I have enjoyed levity
I haven’t held my tail between my legs ,I haven’t bent my knees and begged,
I have tried to destroy ego, I have used the word no
How have you been?
