Divinity- Michelle Lopez

Divine power, comes from

Moves and flows through the world. 
With her curves,
Like honey dripping from a spoon.
Curves that never end.
Curves that never go unnoticed.

Skin like cinnamon, butterscotch, honey, chocolate
glistening skin.

Skin that makes you wish you could taste and smell

Through your eyes.

Eyes that you are so grateful to have

To see



From the top of her crown, 

She is.

To the soles of her strong feet.

She embodies power.
She sways to her own beat,
She creates magic.
She is magic. 

Created from her ancestor’s spirits.
She is a creation. 

Like art, she is enriched with 

Colors, sounds, smells. 
of jasmine, sage, passion fruit. 
cocoa butter.

Her power is strong.

She is divinity. 

Michelle Lopez is an Oakland, California native. She has her B.A. from San Francisco State University in Cultural & Social Anthropology. Lopez currently is a preschool teacher in Oakland and aspires to further her career in education.
