to be African, to be Woman, to be Creative, to be Fashionable, to be Intelligible, to be be IMARA

imara by Mshana

This is the canvas and the pages on which I curate and display the life I wish to create for myself and other liminal hu-women like myself. I explore here my passion for fashion, present my literally inspired visual arts, write my visual arts inspired written works, share my linguistics, travel diaries, show my finding comfort in food, and heck, whatever else I feel like... Welcome and enjoy!

Sister, girlfriend…

“Now b**** thank you for finally understanding that you are unwanted anywhere near us. I don’t think we appreciate opportunistic parasites like you who only come to people when they encounter mental illness like you are currently doing. You are nothing but a mentally ill b****. One that is also so heartless. I can’t believe you still find your way to try talk to my boyfriend when it’s you who hurt him. You have no shame you witch. I swear if I see a sign of your solution self around either my boyfriend or I, I swear I will intensify the already serious mental illness you are going through. Karma is real, you deserve all the insults for hurting him and thinking you can talk to him. Tough luck b**** you have me to deal with. There will never be enough insults to use on you because you are so ungrateful.
And, it’s so funny how you even pretend to care about him because we all know you don’t…it’s just your parasitic and unstable nature that keeps you acting like a s***. 

This is the last you hear from us and we hope you back off or else….”

Sister, girlfriend….

Waging a war on all women on earth who you assume to be man-thieves may keep the women away but will not stop a walking man from leaving. There is absolutely no rope strong enough to tie a man to you. The only things we have known to make men stay are their personal desires, intimate wants, feelings of pleasure and satisfaction, and if you are lucky, their love, but love, that’s rare.

In the rare case that a man loves you, we have never known men to love us women as other women ever do…no matter how much a man loves you, there is always a woman who loves you more than him. For that, we caution your soul piercing insults directed to another woman…the world is big enough for you both.
