Oh, I wanna come near and give you/Every part of me/But there's blood on my hands/And my lips aren’t clean
Take me to your river
I wanna go
(Leon Bridges–River)

Tip me in your smooth waters
I go in
As a man with many crimes
Come up for air
As my sins flow down the Jordan
~River
#leonbridges (repost from @dyholt)
The lines on my neck always reminded me of

the striations on wood,

of my childhood spent looking down,

reading pages from old books.

My skin was the color of trees & I did often think

How when I wrote a book that

I would finally find peace.

I thought about the circle of life when

I predicted I would write. The marks on my neck

are like the rings of the fallen trunk, lined with shelf fungi,

with steadfast innards open for the world to unsee-

to melt into paper & bleach

until we forget the tree ever existed for itself.

I knew it would be Hell becoming a book, but

how can I do anything else & look the way I look?

How could I be black & not give anything back?

How can I live knowing that others stayed quiet for me,

yet not speak up nor write or scream?

White folks worship Jesus for dying for them,

well I'll just live fully for my ancestors since

They lived like shells for me.

I'll become the masterpiece they thought of

when they felt like giving up.

Today I am 100 days on testosterone. 💯 days. Words can’t describe how amazing this journey has been - the growth inside and out, the validation of my vision, and the deep sense of good I feel knowing I’m creating who I know myself to fully be. It’s been a quick few months, with many more to come, but I get so excited by these milestones that I can’t help but share with you guys. ••• If you swipe, you’ll find an audio clip of me singing “Here in my arms” by Leon Bridges. I feel pretty self conscious posting a recording of myself singing, but I want to push through that feeling. I love this song. My voice used to be too high to sing it, but now it’s starting to fit and that makes me so, SO excited! So I hope you guys enjoy it and don’t cringe when you listen to it like I do 😬😬😬 ••• #sorrynotsorry #goodvibesonly #progress #proudofmyself #embraceyourself #singing #leonbridges •••
