Akani Fuko Getting Personal

I’m having trouble separating the fairy dust from the dirt

I’m having trouble separating the fairy dust from the dirt

The storm from the rain

The rain from the flowers

I’m having a hard time trying to forgive and get along

Why can’t we all just get along?

Sure we can, just with the buffer of a pole at least ten feet long

I’m having trouble separating the fairy dust from the dirt

I’m having trouble recognising my courageous voice without my daily dose of rage as a gateway

Who, without my hurdles, is my I am?

A blank page is both a forgiving renewal

As it is an empty room

I’m having trouble defining myself outside of the madness that has come to shape me
