Raindrops in the distance, hitting my open window

Ajar, letting negativity flow away, blowing towards the west

Jesse Boykins on repeat – “Tell me if I hurt your heart”

do I really want this, with you, here?

Knees bent, hands clasped

let us pray

For Paris, Syria, Mexico, Lebanon, Mizzou, Japan, myself

I don’t where I’m going or who with

Sometimes I feel like I’m betraying myself

What is my goal

When will the world reach silence

Waiting for unity

The day one will not get judge for his race or gender

They day a black mother no longer has to worry if her son will come back alive

The time all black women realize their worth
