This is my emancipation I shall not Shall not Shall fucking not Concede to societal ideologies that tell me Who and what I am is wrong Wrong Wrong For knowing my heart Not my pocketbook Holds all my values that I need to navigate The seas of All my life
"Dawn is a breath of frigid air as someone pulls aside the sackcloth. I open my eyes from a dream of Nell. I know who killed you, I tell her. But it is only a dream, the face I seem to recognize evaporates as I wake. Night is fading from the sky, and a last faint star etches a bright line. It falls off the edge of the ethered darkness, a light winking out." -- from the novel SINFUL FOLK sinfulfolk.com
