Musings from behind the Pashmina Veil
Many find it uncomfortable to be with every part of who they are.
That includes me.
You see, e don tey wey e be say I don dey avoid myself .
Make I explain .
I look within, into the watered mirror that reflects my most dominant self
No matter the time or space in this life I have lived
And I see that there are sides to me that I have not allowed
parts that have shrunk from being seen
Others I have refused to let my light in the dark reflect on.
It’s not always a choice not to be seen, or known or shared
Sometimes it’s that around me are those incapable of seeing
Or those unwilling to see
Yet still those unwilling to see their versions of me inclusive of this part.
My dark in My Light of The dark don tey 
But you see, all of Me don gree 
I will let The dark in so My Light can be.
I dey come.
. I’ve been avoiding myself for a very long time
. Let me explain
. I’ve experienced my dark in my light of the dark for a long time
. I have come to this conclusion with myself
