My name is Maria. I am a Holistic Nutritionist finding creative ways to help restore health. I also use food as my creative palate to design with. As I continue growing and experiencing, I practice healing through sound and poetry ♡
What we must walk through. What life has asked of us. Challenged every day. Asked to stand and lead in the midst of controversy and danger.
Shot in her home, there is no excuse. A knee on your neck, mama called out, deceased on the street. Racially profiled in your own neighborhood, violence steps in. Lead in the city’s water, generations left out and unprotected.
The hidden facts of a world secretly unchanged, camoflauged. Suddenly, here to rear it’s ugly head again.
Color, redeamed and free. Look deeper than the cover. As we are determined and decided for by a society. Racism encouraged to be let loose and falsely set free.
Judged today because “we” are too dark, too light, too brown, not brown enough, The encompassing fear, The anxiety to be, Just me.
Oh Great Spirit,
Teach us to hear thy voice
In this turbulent time.
Listen to the trees
As they bend and flow.
Let the calm on a summer's day,
Guide us in our decisions.
Made in the generosity
And extension of our hand
And of a world at peace.
Lead with compassion and understanding.
God our Father,
We are told on the left and to the right,
Mother and Son uphold.
Intuition from the Spirit.
God the Father, God the Son, Holy spirit all in one.
Our Guides and Angels
Answer our prayers and bring us peace.
Guiding Deities offering light,
To illuminate our life.
Oh my Buddha, I pray.
