I want my kindness to break you’re heart in pieces

And rebuild it with a layer that’s transparent;

Able to absorb love.

I want my actions to speak to your situations,

Breathing healing into the bitterness you’re entrenched in;

Touching your soul and triggering positive feelings.

Feelings so intense you allow tears to flow,

Taken aback by the fact that I truly love you,

And it’s as plain as that.

I want each word that passes my lips to plant a seed of life,

Amidst terrible situations – strife.

When you feel you can’t survive,

And your manhood’s being attacked from all sides:

Kneeling, broken, spiritually feeling like you’ve died.

I want to be the woman you come to,

Gaining strength to rise.


About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
