I walk BRAVO
My skin is sun kissed
But my body is Bravo
Bravo! That’s what the outsider say for ‘WELL DONE”
The Italians think it means “BRAVE”
But you know what I think?
Bravo is a cell injected in my body about to explode
Bravo is a substance reaction that made my Bubu blind
Bravo is a deliberate performance in the sky
A calculated invisible to camouflage the visible
Burn tears burn dry
Bravo is my siblings born a defect machine
Bravo is a gene I pass
A replicate of a poisonous culture
But you know….
My Island a Castle before Bravo.

“I am betting on love. Love is our strength. Love formed the weave and called it to being. It is love for who we are and for which we are that will set us all free. Love is the advocate that transcends bilateralism. Love is the decision maker in us, with us and through us. It is about love. It is about ALL of us.”
