You are Oceanic by Tapiwa Mugabe

Beautiful poem as a reminder.

All she wanted was to find a place to stretch her bones.

A place to lengthen her smiles

and spread her hair

a place where her legs could walk without cutting and bruising

a place unchained.

She was born out of ocean breath.

I reminded her;  ‘Stop pouring so much of yourself into hearts that have no room for themselves

do not thin yourself, be vast.

You do not bring the ocean to a river.’

– Tapiwa Mugabe, You are Oceanic

Dreamer. Too much faith in humankind. Could be wicked sometimes. Europhile. Permanent head to heart damage. Crybaby. Fan of vanilla. Random act of kindness. Supports freedom to be yourself. Might scream in public. Dance. Fall in and out of love. Beautiful soul. Believer. On and off writer. Good at listening. Functions with honey. Sweet-tooth. Rebel. Travel Quotes
