This morning was way too cold to even comprehend I sat near the river where I have my morning meditation and read, just setting the tone for the day where I use this time to align my thought process with my spiritual energy so that I can achieve a level of peace and bliss within myself. The cold this morning was making me a little anxious about my early morning endeavours but alas I was set and ready to begin my day.
I brush my teeth, comb my hair, adjust my belt, put on my socks, had my last fill of breakfast, car keys, engine sound and I'm out, before my day usually begins I like to grab a coffee to smoke on and just vibe with the music, walk into the cafe " Hey Feizal Americano extra dark" to which I reply "Yes Hussein and ill take a brownie today" as I keep singing Lizzos lyrics
"Oh, I've been so down and under pressure
I'm way too fine to be this stressed, yeah
Oh, I'm not the girl I was or used to be
Uh, bitch, I might be better"
A strange man to my right is staring at me, his eyes looking still but lost as though he's been out the whole night had a couple of extracurricular and is living on Vibes and Inshaallah and so naturally to disarm an awkward situation such as staring I usually greet the person "Hi how are you doing" at this time Hussein is cupping my americano at the till we have another 2 customers in line and one of the chefs has just brought out a cake from the back and the man proceeds to ask and very loudly might I add " WHY ARE YOU GAY?" all of a sudden the room goes quiet and everyone is silent Hussein has frozen halfway to placing my order in front of me, the chef turns his neck so abruptly I thought it may snap, the lady in gym wear right behind me removes her other airpod and I continue to channel my inner Lizzo in my head close my eyes and take a deep but short breath:-
Turn up the music, turn down the lights
I got a feelin' I'm gon' be alright
Okay (okay), alright
It's about damn time (time)
Turn up the music, and let's celebrate (alright)
I got a feelin' I'm gon' be okay
Okay (okay), alright
It's about damn time
I take into calculation that two or three things could wrong, I could insult him and shout back, say nothing pay and walk away or stand my ground and ask myself one more time WHO GONE CHECK ME!
I clear my throat "I am Gay because it's FANTASTIC, its UNIQUE, it's BEAUTIFUL, and if anything we run most of the economies of the world whilst still being Unicorns with a sense of style that's why, so have yourself a nice day" Paid for my coffee, and sashayed out as though I had just won a huge battle.
I'll leave it there for today. My saying for this it's new. lol"Oh, I'm not the girl I was or used to be, Uh, bitch, I might be better"
