she is fire
in the middle of the night
torching the walls
setting the floor to flames
dancing with laughter
as she flickers
in and out and
in and out
so i’m going to be selling a kindle collection of all of the poetry that I wrote 2011-2012. it isn’t including anything on this website. all new stuff that you guys have never seen. i’m going be selling it for about 2bucks. i’ll be letting you all know when i release it if you’re interested at all.
but seriously, reblog this as much as you’d like, especially if you enjoy reading my poetry. thanks, God bless and peace.
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
if a charmander running in circles chasing its tail doesnt fit your blog then you are running the wrong kind of blog
as the dawn slips under my nails
and touches the soft under skin
she rolls over in our bed
and her lips part as the corners
of her upturned mouth
stay firmly planted
in their place
and she murmurs gurgling
babbles of holy words and sounds
that fall onto the blankets
and take root like little shooting vines
