Let’s start a movement

Let’s start a movement

Let’s start a simple movement

Relieving the burden of proof

From those who are oppressed

Relieving the burden of proof

From those who are marginalized

Relieving the burden of proof

From cultures that have been appropriated

Let’s start a powerful movement

Relieving the burden of proof

From those who experience micro aggressions

Relieving the burden of proof

From those that experience systemic racism

Relieving the burden of proof

From those that experience discrimination and prejudice

Let’s start a movement of believing those experiences by relieving the burden of proof requirement to be heard.

Vacations

Refusing to let expectations

Take from me-

Vacations

Filled with poem reading and writing

A little music playing

Bike riding and friend hanging

Truth telling-

I don’t feel guilty for

Vacations not wasted

Instead gently

Washing over me and

Leaving behind me-

Retrospective looking forward

Brothers and Sisters

They may have had

Crap parents

But they know about

Sibling love

The kind that

Teaches you kindness

And Goodness

The kind that always

Has a place for you

They know about that

Kind of love

That does not

Let them down

And teaches them

To love and live

A life worth

Living for

They will always know

About that kind of love
