As a woman of color, I feel terrified for what the next four years will bring. I am still struggling to come to terms with what has occurred and I know that so many others across the world are, as well. If this many people are frightened for what will happen as a result of the election, we cannot possibly be on the right track to “make America great”. It is not right that a country with so many democratic ideals should elect such a xenophobic, racist, sexist, and homophobic president. I cannot express how much I despise him and his views on a multitude of subjects, but as deplorable as he is, this is the decision that our nation has reached. We need to come to terms with this fact, no matter how grim it is, and move on and make the best of our bleak situation. I think that America is still reeling form the shock of this election and we need sometime to heal, but hopefully everything will be okay. Just know that no matter what he says, no one will ever crush our voices, we will stand strong in the face of adversity. Please don’t further Trump’s hateful message, but spread love and kindness because that is what America needs right now. ♥️
I posted this on my Tumblr as well, but I think everyone needs to realize that hating on others is not going to solve our problem, we must all come together and spread love. If you know anyone who is struggling with the results of the election, please take the time out of your day to talk to them, we all could learn to support each other more. I will try to get a more cohesive poem up sometime in the future, but this is just my thoughts immediately following the election.
