Recently, I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me, out of the blue, Mama? I said, Yes, baby? She said, I’m the ugliest girl I know. And I said, Huh??? And she was like, Yeah, I look like a boy with long hair. And my brain went to “Oh my god, you’re 6. Why? Where is this coming from? Who said this? Can I kick a 6-year-old’s ass, like what?“

I can’t live another life
Spend another time

I can’t spit another rhyme on Gaia
Guns and wars won’t stop the fights
Not inside your mind
Love and communion, there’s nothing better
Cheeks get redder
There’s nothing better
Even in rough weather

It’s raining knives, like all the time
And I’m alive, Irayo Eywa, we’re alive
