Human Writes: GLOW

Glow and overflow.

Shine on the outside and inside.

Cleanse the mind.

Be kind.

Use your time.

Thankful of your life.

Glow and overflow.

Be free and grow.

Take care of the hair, the skin, the fro,

Condition and moisturize.

Wake up on time to dance with the sunrise.

Glow and overflow.

Learn to be alone.

To be bold.

To listen to yourself and to take hold.

Cry. Smile. Shout and let it all out – Then take a deep breath in and then out.

Glow and behold.

A shimmer in your walk.

A glimmer in your talk.

An attitude of self-love.

A gratitude of body and soul.

An expression of the entire fulfilled human made whole.

Do your thang and Glo.
