Day 3: This House

The writing 201 challenge is over, but I plan on continuing with it!

Really had a ball writing! The one thing I wish I had been better at was writing and sharing my work daily(work and school kinda got in the way).

So I’ve decided to share my work anyways like a boss! This was originally meant for Day 3 (Skin, Prose, Internal Rhyme). I wrote it after watching a few (dozen-lol) videos of this Alotta Boutte. 

When I started down my road to burlesque a few years ago, I searched high and low for women that looked like me so I could pick up tips on how to really showcase my body.

I found that and so much more when I finally came across this lovely woman here! Her creativity, stage presence, charisma, and realness blew me away!

For that reason, I would like to dedicate this poem to her.

Thank you for inspiring me to be more of my most authentic self – on and off the stage. I keep hoping that when she’s finally free to give master burlesque classes that I will be able to go.

If not – don’t be surprised when ya’ll see me put up a GoFundMe to raise them funds! LOL

I loves the house that I am in and the house I am in loves me.

How else could it constantly care for me?

To remain standing proudly throughout these years –

Oh how I love the house that I am in!

It suits me so – could never let it go.

This house that I built.

With its rich cinnamon brown exterior, and lush posterior..

I never want to be without this house that I built!

This house cherishes me – completes me.

This house that I built.
