Black woman tanka

In the spirit of putting a post up every day this month, here’s today’s post. Don’t forget to catch up on previous posts in this series…

On days that I can’t
I hear the screaming voices
‘Your freedom is yours’
I forge new pain-free pathways
While entwined to healing scars

You know the drill with my tankas – you can reply to it in the comments section.

Happy writing!!!
