Like the phoenix, I rise again

This poem speaks to my heart, ya’ll.

Say you finally invented a new story
of your life. It is not the story of your defeat
or of your impotence and powerlessness
before the large forces of wind and accident.

Jill Scott’s new single

I’ve watched this song non-stop all morning, it shall be my theme song for the week. When Eve came out the first time, I literally jumped up and yelled OH HELL YEAH. (And yes, it was a moment worthy of Kanye all-caps.)

Jill Scott and Eve? It doesn’t get much better than that. Go buy her album when it comes out.
