Struggle

Sometimes the struggle

Be so hard, be so real that

When they get it, peace

Hiding

He has important things to say

He hides behind others voices

Imitating them so well

That he has forgotten

Just how powerful

His voice is

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

Justice Work

I used to think that resistance is the only path to justice

Then I was reminded of all those who came before me

I was reminded of all those who worked together for justice

Justice work is hard work, but justice work is work that we do together

It never has to be lonely work

And it never has to be defined by what we are resisting

Instead it can be defined by what we are working towards so that work may continue until all our battles are won

Waiting for the bus…

Her choice to enter your

Car

Truck

Van

Is not my choice to enter your

Car

Truck

Van

No I will not

Like it

On my bike

No I will not

Like it

In bare feet

No I will not

Like it

In my front yard

No I will not

Like it

Walking down the street

With my child

With my friend

On my own

No I will not

Like it

Want it

Or ask for it

Her choice is not my choice
