My Hope of Silver Linings: Enlightening the Zeitgeist about Sickle Cell

Bless Up from your feet to your head top,

In my fight to start a career for myself in this world knowing my life and health/physical condition it has been a hard fought fight to eve bring myself to the door & even have it open for me. I spent months out of the past four years coming up with ways to produce content that was candid enriched my community and educated minds in a way that was able to strike a chord in the hearts of those that wouldn’t know, and created a harmony with the voiceless.

I have always seen myself helping people. I just needed a way that was congruent and natural with who I am. Sickle Cell isn’t my whole person but it is a system that I engage with daily while creating. It has lost me jobs has held me back in my education my social life and my relationships with people.

I have always been the type of person to talk about the goodness of the world, magnify the good out there, I do  see it as my responsibility to show both sides and better still show a side that’s not highlighted that happens to be sickle cell its not the only invisible disease that’s out there but its the first one that I have had to contend with interpersonally and culturally.

I hope that what I have done with Melancholy Maelstrom can be a start to something. Not only showing what Ive been through in terms of the condition but also how that can create expression and discord within someone & how I got through it because sickle cell isn’t my identity,

I am a full human being and there’s much more to. me than what my blood does and the subliminal messages my culture sends, the people send and how they view me. I define myself not anyone else around me. I’ve spent most winters being afraid of the cold changed my mood and change my character, I won’t take it anymore its a terrible reality. Unless you live it the limitations create a warped sense of reality I oppose and rebelled against. In the wrong way. Now I’m more understanding and know a better way than the way they were taught to teach us.

My life has been innately negative From the start and it hasn’t stopped the thing I was blessed with was skill to convey message and execute it thoroughly .

A life of a genius’ pain. I don’t live one without the other

My skill helps me stand tall in the face of all adversity pain and trauma, endlessly bittersweet and always a lesson learned. My life as a case study for those that go through it all in life and are unable to field the lessons or see past their trauma to use mine as a guide

The good from my life comes from the greatness of my skill and those that recognise it. My trauma was born with me my pain perpetuated it I having the skill to still work while it exists is no mere feat. Although I don’t ask for applause I ask for us all to do better

i want no company in misery I want the world to love and life for the greatness and betterment of all humanity. My heart pains for all people in terrible situations and I use that pain to paint the canvas in hopes to give somewhat of a reflection in order to heighten minds for a better tomorrow.

My finger is long wrought but I know this is the right way to go. This type of education, learning through art is a vision of mine. Not many are here for it but I hope to create great works that stand the test of time so whenever a group is downtrodden they can look to my words for guidance
