Day 5


Written by Ericka Arthur for Authenticitee Speaks March 5, 2018

I could never relate to you

I didn’t see any fairies growing up

And unlike Tinkerbell I wasn’t born

from a baby’s first laugh and

a white dandelion seed.

I never found that perfect blend of

Easter Sunday pastels and John Robert Powers

NYC taught defensive walking.

Timberlands pounding concrete and a scoliosis infused curve appeal were more my speed.

More my thang. More me. Me.

But angels? Angels I saw everyday.

Angels in the eyes of Grandma Dora.

Angels in every stranger that told the city bus driver to wait for me running down the street or yelled “Back door!!”; causing the drivers to slam on their brakes so I can get off a ridiculously crowded bus.

Angels on the days I didn’t see them


like the wind, felt the effects of them.

Never played dressed up in pink or

sheer flowing gowns donning wings.

If anything my Fairy Godmother woulda been the round the way, street smart great Aunt named Miss One.

She was the Magical Number Runner portrayed by the beautiful but totally relatable Thelma Carpenter in The Wiz.

Instead of Lena Horne’s equally beautifully yet stunning, classic, feminine portrayal of Glenda the Good Witch.

But perhaps more than a notion; this is the

modern day affirmation of Girl power.

Recognizing but respecting the unique

sound waves embedded in our wings.

Perhaps what makes real Girl Power

powerful is trusting that your power

like mine

is empowered – by those who believe.
