Red Lipstick

On the right side of the hospital walls
July 5, 2019

As a pastor's child, wearing the color red was discouraged.

That meant, no red lipstick; no red nail polish; and no red dresses. For whatever reason, red was seen as sinful and devilish, too grown and sexy.

I no longer stand scared or intimidated by the judgments, opinions and biases of others.

For me, the color red represents the love and the fire inside of me. The color red lets me know that God loves me and His blood runs through my veins.


I wear the color red because I am a SURVIVOR.
