I don’t think I’m coming back to deviant art—at least not to write poetry, not for a while.
There are a few reasons for this.
Firstly, my beliefs regarding a lot of social justice poetry that I’ve written have changed as I’ve gotten older. As a woman of color, the views I shared as a girl regarding racism and social justice have evolved, drastically.
I’d like to say that I’ve grown, and they’re not exactly the same as they were when I first started writing.
At the same time, I no longer believe that this platform is effective for poetry.
I don’t think deviantart is what it used to be. I won’t go into detail, but the website has changed. It’s become a task to submit my work, and an even harder task to get it out there.
I hope this explains my prolonged absence.
Thanks to everyone who followed me in the past, and I hope you understand! That said, feel free to enjoy my older writings.

I write poetry for a hobby and occasionally draw. Hope you like my gallery, though beware, there are strong opinions.
