Raven /

“Oh my womanhood was forged in the fires of self acceptance, tempered by desire and brought up in a home of love, raised in fear, childhood taken when constricted
for hours back breaking painful but worth it my transition has been a reincarnation call, time me be healthy, become more refined and to a point eyes passed dawn by generations, that is my womanhood.”
