There are endless possibilities
Nothing is set in stone
We cannot predict the future but can still build a home
We plan for what's next by investing now
Afrofuturism is the spectrum in which we are healing from now
We are acting how we want to be
We are exactly where we ought to be
Building our narratives when we were pushed to the side
I say to those,
Dream on brother dream on
Dream on sister dream on
Though anxiety might rise
Invest my sister invest
Invest my brother invest
Because this ain't just about you, but your legacy too has to have a throne to sit on
Find, plant, and grow
Then you and your people can go further than the past generation
It's all cyclical
see how we rise?
See how we move through our destiny
See how we make joy from our pain
Lemonade out of stale lemons
And dirty water
We will always be refreshed
We will always be here
Because when the world ends there will be cockroaches, styrofoam and black people

Bio: Ivanna began writing at a young age. "Much like Maya Angelou, when I was a child I didn't speak much." She was not welcomed to express herself vocally. " I took to writing to express the thoughts I was often denied in speaking." She honed her skills as she continued creating and she is now in a position where writing is her profession.
Ivanna is a freelance and broadcast journalist, song writer, ghost writer, poet, and many other titles.
"Essentially I want to share my perspective to the world. Each of us lives a unique life and my lens has always been one I've wanted to showcase to the world."
