I wrote this piece over the course of two days. By day 3, I had it memorized. By day 4, I was performing it. People loved it. It made them moan. It made them gush. It made them believe in magic again. It was a surprise to me as well, this sudden unleashing of passion. This piece made me change my plans. I became a spoken word artist, not just a poet.
Inconvenient Emotions is the first track from my upcoming album, Bursting Into Art. That name perfectly describes what happened to me. After years of healing the wounds of childhood trauma and addiction with self-love and spirituality, I came full circle, returned to the passion in my veins that makes me a human being, a woman, an artist.
I also hope to collaborate with other creatives through this track. I am open to having background music added to it. I’m also open to working with dancers and choreographers to create videos to match its flow. Play with it. Send me what you come up with. If it tickles my creativity, I’d be happy to work with you.
I’m so grateful for your support on this journey, especially those of you that have been with me since the self-help days. It’s a gift to be followed into the depths of my creative process and accepted as the ever-changing person I am. If you’re still here, you honour me. I feel the love. Thank you.
