More Than A Number

So Alysia Harris is back again, in case I haven’t mentioned it before, she is one of my favorite poets! I love pretty much everything I’ve heard her do.

This one is really deep, it’s about sexual abuse/trafficking/ prostitution…

First time I listened to it, I got chills…

To me, it speaks to taking your power back from the abuser and rewriting your story. No matter what happened you shouldn’t define yourself as ‘that’. You can be more, as a matter of fact you ARE more than that.

So as a survivor, keep your head up and keep keeping on…

That’s my take on this one.

Enjoy!
