to be of service, to one's family , is a choice. so many families are divided by the refusal to serve. . .to be in service of communication.

when my father and sister' became ill, i was not at odds with them. instead, we had fallen into non communciation.

geography mde me their advocate. as the youngest, most educated, most single and independent it was assumed i'd spear head a fight in arenas no education could prepare.

initially, it felt like an enslavement. until my white friends began to echo the sentiment. their consolations reminded me of my poverty. and, my power was to never be as they expected, so i began to refram the experience.

family service is all that was seen and learned. a black family becoming more.... closer and real than it had before. we were as broken as any other family. but, circumstance has a way of making family and being in it and of service an act of becoming a better version of oneself.
