There are those fighting for their life
There are those fighting for their/ to be right(s)
There are those fighting to be white
Black Lives Matter.
A happy person makes a terrible activist
Due to recent events
Whenever I have a bad day
I always remember they’re usually followed by
Good ones to come
Give a man some straw
to build a bridge,
and he will find a way
to mend brittleness for his
Family to cross.
But give a man cement
and the foundation will be lazy
If we be a day (today)
let's make tomorrow jealous
The people we truly Love never leave us.
There will always be imprints on our Hearts
made by them.
And when we choose to Love again
It's like muscle memory
Fall arrives, and the leaves
turn dry — meanwhile outside
there’s plenty of wet *****.
