I Am Wise / Amamihe - it is in my DNA, my scars bear witness to my strength and resilience; this is who I am / have been / will be.

A keeper of secrets, an observer of life and a repository of knowledge; still of body, active of mind, processing information at phenomenal speeds, through multiple times and dimensions. My colours flicker and emerge from deep space, I am ready to share  


Sticks and stones never broke my bones, but names have always harmed me 
So, I lived in fear, lived with the fear of my potential to be great
To blaze a swathe of light before me, around me, through time and space                   
I have mastered the litany of fear
I have closed my ears and soul to the sounds of other's judgement
Ever hopeful I now expose myself, my light and shade
I release my colours, I SHOUT MY NAME
