My art is painful. It forces me to dig hours into my vulnerability and the raw within. My art is a beggar, begging for political consciousness and people to hear untold stories. My art is a fighter for liberation. My art travels beyond oceans and years past. My art is soulful and full of love. My art is emotional for you to remember and know it is real. My art gives me strength and tells me who I am. My art takes away my questions defeating my insecurities and fears. My art is weaponry. My art is unity. My art is sacred. My art is revolutionary.
