About the album:

"Life Lessons Poetically is a reflection of lived experiences by King Kimbit, born as Nguyễn Anh Thư, daughter of two educators from the Vietnamese “boat people” diaspora whose refuge on Turtle Island had brought them together. This collection of poems, along with the respective musical arrangements, illustrate the lessons learned and insight gained so far in the quarter century of the journey through intersections. Despite the inevitable presence of oppressive white supremacy and patriarchy, there is beauty in telling stories of life and death, revealing the healing and survival of women and the world. "

To watch in silence as the world around you burns to ashes, is to add wind to the fire, helping it grow. No longer can I hold my tongue as ignorance reigns supreme convincing my people there is a drought in knowledge, when in fact there is limitless light abundant in each and every one of us. I know for a fact that if we all lit up together in love and unison, the sun would acknowledge our harmony and shine on us rewardingly.

To achieve peace, its absence must first be acknowledged. To heal pain, its root causes must be identified and addressed. The collective breath of the universe is escaping from our dialect, swept away to be hidden under the rug of mindless propaganda, along with discourse on our collective trauma. Let us remove the constrictive hands of deception from our necks, and allow ourselves to inhale. I invite you, whenever you are ready, to join me as i learn to breathe.
