A few weeks before 2017 ended,
I had the honor of cosmically meeting a fellow Queen sister Assumpta Vitcu. She is poetry, Prose and personal style blogger at metodayyoutommorow.com
Going through her words, her poetry below jumped out at me. Even though she’s now far from the place it was written 3 years ago, I find her words comforting for my soul because I am crossing the same path she speaks of.
Whether it resonates with you or not, let her words soothe your soul. Listen and give it a share. You’ll never know which sister in your life is at cross roads and might need some direction.
Her richly melanated skin and luscious lips are a couple the many reasons we love Assumpta. Trow in her beautiful Afro and its a done deal.
Ladieeess (and gents) I give you our #NaturaloftheWeek and #HAIRSPIRATION of the Month. Enjoy her poetry below and watch out for more deets.
Assumpta shares her feelings on the pre-occupation with marriage by a certain age or time, via a spoken word piece. “Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Originally written as a rant (almost 3 years ago) following sustained inquisition from [well-intentioned] family and friends, The Labour of Love Landscaping is for anyone (female or male) who has ever felt the weight of questions regarding ones relationship status.
