“Lord, we ask that you bless The Pynk tonight as we try to go out with one last…big ass bang.”
They say be careful what you wish for.
& to be very intentional with the words you use & speak over yourself/your life and others.
Cuz Murda Night sure did go out wit a big ass bang 🔫
& my bb Uncle Clifford spoke that into existence 😭
& co-created with all the other elements necessary for Murda Night to end the way it did.
Tender boys who grew up wit they Grammy
And all her cats
Left to sit back
Cuz when he walk, he got a switch back
That earned him tenure at her house
Sweet as pie and quiet as a mouse
Played in the yard, barely left the house
Boys like him was hushed at an early age
At the early stage
When da men dem peep his ways
His true self died at an early age
Like his body did, from AIDS
If I could take a turn back of the page
I would hug him so tight
Let him know that it’s alright
To love and to like...who you like
To be who you be
As you would like to walk these island streets
Bey I wish I was older when we did meet
I just remember the smile
The smile that showed me early, it was ok to be the Sun
even if some folks prefer shade…
I remember you.
I honor you.
I love you.
My first known queer Ancestor
I remember ✨🕊
