I had such a good time at #uprooted @uprootyyc 
Thank you @melveepoetry  for sharing and inviting me into this space and your beautiful home. I have been nourished, the talks were healing and sharing my poetry in front of all bipoc peeps who truly understand what I was saying was exactly what I needed from my short trip to #calgary. 
There was a Colombian family who came, the two young women with me have seen and memorised my accent poem. They told me my poetry has been essential for what they needed in order to start searching for their roots and fill the void in their hearts. I got shivers. Confirmation that I am fulfilling my purpose. Thank you Creator.
