The Explosive that Fuels Me

This photo shows a newly found confidence in a woman who has never felt as though she was beautiful a day in her life. Looking at this photo gives me chills because she never let me take photos of her. This photo, among others, shows a woman who not only has been through the raging fires of judgement but also has been the explosive fire that fuels my soul. I have never been so excited in my life about a photo before, I present to you, my ma.
