To speak a name that one can’t mumble; to be as smooth as a gently passing breeze, yet to require thought in pronunciation, is to be tender in being purposeful; Is to consider the soul before anything else; is to explore and appreciate the depth of my skin; to understand brown is a colour as full as is heavy; to find comfort in standing up firmly, to stand grounded by a history rich as the tones we walk in; is steady footing on uneven ground, to speak SELASI, is to hold the power of the knowledge that my soul carries the legacy of those before, and to respect that power that flows through me.
