I've always been shamed in the celebration like it's not my place to win don't smile too much at the congregation all my successes are sin I wanna be bigger look at the space I deserve look at the body I deserve look at the space I deserve look at the body I deserve and it deserves me all these motions feel like faking like this skin will hold me tight is it an embrace or a suffocation is it a rally or a fight

how do I connect to the spirits? how do I connect to the spirits? lay down let up the fight lay down how do I face my ancestors? how do I face my cells? I haven't turned around for years to see their faces I haven't turned around for years to see their faces I see their faces in mine their faces in mine, yeah how do I connect to the spirits? how do I connect to the spirits? lay down lay down lay down lay down it isn't enough it isn't enough yet

This Body 02:59
you want to take from my body you want to mark on my body put your claim on me place your claim on me you were not here first you were not here first you were not here first I was I was I don't want to disappear but I don't need your eyes to see me I don't want to disappear but I don't need your eyes to see me I don't want to disappear but I don't need your eyes to see me I want them all to hear but I don't need your voice to speak me you were not here first you were not here first you were not here first I was I was I was I was this thing is my thing this body is my body this thing is my thing this body is my body

about

I grew up in a small town with a family and community that didn't know how to express love for themselves or each other. At a young age, I latched onto religion as a way to feel purpose, something bigger than the world I was living in. Through this lens, my sexuality and nudity became warped, shameful, and taboo. What followed was years of sexual trauma and positions where I was meant to be kept small. At the very core of the vōx project is expression, freedom to love who I love, and divine power in my naked form. I’m not naked for anyone but myself. This Body is an exploration of this reclamation, a deep dive into why I’ve kept myself small, the consequences of my lineage, and how I can be worthy of the love I know I deserve.
