As the world turns
As the earth spins
I keep thinking of little Miss Flint
& how Michigan still don’t have clean water…
Syn, the Sun;
& Daughter of Diaspora
My bloodline has witnessed generations of slaughter
Erasure of melanated pixels like the Associated Press & the image of Vanessa Nakate from Uganda
This shit is not propaganda
Watch: When they see us.
When will they free us?
going on 30
Trayvon; 17, going on guilty-
as a black child, who’s only crime was existing in his skin
don Miguel Ruiz taught me about the biggest sin:
going against yourself.
But what do you do when the systems weren’t designed for you & rather, against you?
My grandmother laid hands
And prayed plans to a white man
Who never came
He saves, but who???
I find solace in honest conversations.
Communication on how our communities can be better & find unity within this intentional system of marginalization…
