Been here before

in my twenties
when love was how you feel not who you feel it for
man
woman
love reigned in the heart
then African judgments family concerns
looks of disapproval
blocked the good vibes replaced them with shame and doubt
tore off my rainbow ensemble replaced it with the
greys
browns
and blah
life’s wheel kept
on spinning
passing days
then months
then years
engaged
not engaged
engaged
then married

then a child
no longer me
I searched for
who I was
and from the corner
of my eye
streams of color showed up!
Curious
I stepped out of the greys
browns
and blah
and into the stream and life had a new beat he
she
we
danced
kissed
loved
and in this old-new vibe
is me
Bi
