From the night in her skin to kink of her hair
The sun in her smile to the stars in those eyes
I know that Melanin is beautiful
The beauty that glows through her
blood like magic
Her melanin drips lik...
You point at us and laugh
and say that we’re trash
while you make cash from the blood of our sons,
wash the stains from your hands, and sweep up the ash.
The factory-workin’ mother labors from sun-up ...
Unravel your discord of frustration which was meant for our cordial fruition. This has now been vexed a-side, b-side the sea side, inside a hollow shell of truthful slander and a damnation that is to ...
It’s not quiet.
Not a pitter-patter of summer raindrops on gossamer rooftops. It is not shy.
It is a raging fire than burns through oppressive cloths that marks its territory with crimson cou...
Let's go in time
To when you galloped on shooting stars
Over open flame
As I was choking on the fullness of your breath
Because I was starving on the paragraphs swallowed
Taking stance like soldiers u...
The people that lead us, the people that teach us, have no clue either.
They tell us yes, they tell us no, but what the fuck do they show?
We are lured into their power, brought up with ...
I've never been scared of many things.
I've tended to understand what things could and couldn't hurt me.
My biggest fear in life has always been,
The thought of looking over the top of a skys...
This was like a deck of cards, and you stacked the deck, like a dealer does when he deals, you stole it all back, every penny, every ounce I gave to you, shuffled it up and tore me right through, now ...

I remember a time when I played in the sun.
I remember it all being with my dad.
I remember how he made me glad.
I remember a time when he’d move mountains f...
I'm throwing a party.
There will be:
1. Violently colored balloons shaped
like middle fingers.
2. Moist cake
with rainbow glitter
and the words
written in impecable
I call it...
You made it this way and I can't be bothered by your lack of integrity
You came to the conclusion of the fact of the matter that you live in this society
You've come to terms with committing crimes ag...
As I sit here I wonder if others understand why it's a must that we instill in others that black lives really matter
I mean as if blacks actually matter in a society that teaches others they don't
Supremacists, nationalists, history advocates—
they march because they say they will not let their place in history be forgotten.
their history be replaced.
their race be erased.
But who can forget th...
When I was a kid...
I never spoke up
About the bullying and torture
I endured on a daily basis Because I was afraid
Nobody would listen Or that I would be reminded
That sticks and stones

This is a moment,
If even that.
of mind lapsing.
If even that.
That has collapsed.
But got deterred.
Mental track derailed.
All we do is sit on our phones all they long all day long, even now I'm writing this on my phone how long will this madness live on?
I come from a generation where we no longer speak, we text, we...
I can feel it
Another year creeping onto me
I can feel it a strange cold chill of euphoria on my brow, stirring in my soul, telling it I am another year old

Humans also possess inflexibili...
