Shalom Harlow by Jessica May Underwood

published on 2 November 2018

“My sense of empowerment comes from my own inner ferocity and NO-ing there is no externalized anything that can give me a true sense of agency. This power comes from my hard earned access to my fangs and my claws. Because the power is within, I lay claim to it and I have no need to exert it over others. I can let it be and let them see...me, clearly... in all my colors and weakness and glory.”
