"But I suppose what is a black woman when she is not a saviour,
Soldier in somebody else's cause.
What a burden it must be,
to carry humanity like that in your soul,
When you are strong but everyone is always asking you to prove it..."

@Dezziiee_ at @empowordslough last wknd 💛

So many amazing moments at #SloughYouthAwards2019 last night- loved seeing @Dezziiee_ on the big screen for the launch of We Walk, a short film for Better By, the @SloughCouncil sustainable travel campaign by @empowordslough. 🎥by @MinustoneMatt https://t.co/Rav1IhIlm7

"& I would naively breathe it all in,
the fumes of the M4,
& the burning in my mum's core,
& it took me many years & tears to realize,
why this heat makes my belly so sore..."
