I scroll down to avoid the pictures.
I scroll down to avoid the hate.
I scroll own to avoid the debate.
I scroll down because its not a debate.
My friend's lives are not a topic for my paper.
They have thoughts and feelings an dreams.
Instead I watch them fight, for basic human rights.
Debate the hate. That's what they tell me.
Be an ally, walk the talk.
But instead I scroll.
Afraid to get involved.
Afraid to be;
Forever caught in a "debate" that isn't a debate.
Afraid to say the wrong thing.
The right to exist co-equal runs across many lines
lack of imagination, moral cowardice, politics, culture, religion.
All dark scenery and stage craft
You will never erase our existence
The jazz record plays,
The old man with the red velvet hat smokes his cigar and sips his drink. On the dance floor, a couple dances, looking into each other eyes, not wanting to let go. The musician p...
In the eye of the killer, you’re the prey,
In the eye of the auteur, look for the story today,
In the eye of a lover, you’re a beautiful thing
In the eye of the beholder, you can be anything.
Love is it real or is it fake, is it something to hate pick your take. Shame is lame, something that you can't tame. Peace take it or leave it, it's up to you to do the believing. Lies the only questi...
My Voice. Won't be heard. Because I am a young, Caucasian, religious female. They won't want to hear my opinion once I say I'm independent in the political world. They won't listen because I'm not "ol...
I dreamt a different life last night
As a worker underground
Fumes and dust filled the lungs
Deafened by the sounds
The toxins filled every cell
The pain began to shout
Into the days of retirement
What would our forests look like,
if the trees found a reason to war with each other?
Two American flames trying to put out the other's fire,
because they're not ready to burn brighter next to one ano...
Yesterday is gone, and here I stand feeling empowered and strong. Something came over me when I woke up, made me see that life is worth living when you don't give up. Sometimes those people who claim ...
They say you attract the same energy you give off
What about the traits
Are they saying I have them too
What if I never experienced it
Never wanting to taste
Feel, see the reaction of the causes
I was terrified, couldn't believe what I was seeing,
The madness the horror of it.
I was so petrified beyond words,
August 16th and the stores are already set up for Halloween,
The kids haven't even g...
Every aspect of life holds duality
More than duality, in fact, child...
This thing is an ambiguous white water rapid
So fluid and chaotic that nothing matters.
Nothing can grasp the illusory rope call...
There are the miniature cats that
sit on the windowsill.
They aren’t real,
but they’re the closest friends right now.
They are completely wooden.
And their eyes are drawn on with red crayon,
We are human beings living on the planet called “Earth”
We are young
We are old
We are the past, present, and incoming future
We are male and female
We are gay and straight
We are the winners that tak...
I once was told I was colored, I once was told I'm a Negro, Who soon became black labeled Afro. African-American what is that I ask? How could the truth change so many times? Who gave these labels I a...
Chaos or Calamity
Whatever this weather it may seem to be.
Unspoken words kill like a disease.
Communication is key.
And who to listen to?
And who to trust?
Battling between lovers and lust.
This is a moment,
If even that.
of mind lapsing.
If even that.
That has collapsed.
But got deterred.
Mental track derailed.
