My voice is the sunrise on a misty morning. Light. Peaceful.

My Voice Is / This Is A Voice....

My voice is / an endangered coward / a lasting knife wound/ two boys moaning silhouette / as they find solace / in each other’s mouths / my voice is typical ‘ even now while the moon / is afraid to shine / it’s light on me.

This Is a Love...

This is a love that is smooth as butter sliding down a hot knife/ your love smothers me like being wrapped up in a storm / your love is powerful earth shattering like the flapping of butterfly wings/ This love is pure sweet but filled with vanity and unruly pleasure that can not be contained by restrictions or unrealistic expectations

My Voice Is / This Is A Voice....

My voice hesitates sometimes. My voice searches for the right words, but maybe my voice needs to stop waiting. Maybe all of our voices should stop waiting. The moment is now.

That makes you feel happy, and appreciated…. You want to release this feeling…. You don’t want to bottle up your feelings… You can’t bottle up for feelings forever… You see that they make you happy… They are your happiness… You feel so warm and fuzzy when they are around… Love is real…. You feel that love is real…

13.82 billion years ago, when our universe, supposedly, was made. Every speck of energy in our universe was jammed together in one ball. And this ball exploded outwards with an unimaginable force, creating matter and pushing it outwards to create the billions of galaxies in our universe. It spread matter at a rate of 300 million meters per second. Our universe expanded, growing at a rate faster than the speed of light. The universe was about 10 billion degrees Fahrenheit at this time. The matter formed particles and atoms, the stuff that would form stars, galaxies, every planet, and every living organism. About 10.32 billion years after this, (3.5 billion years ago), the first life on Earth was, supposedly, born. It was the single celled organism, which was to evolve into all life on Earth. And then, 10,319,999,986 years later, (14 years ago), I was born. In a messy, chaotic world. Filled with bad people. And some good people. Selfish people. And some selfless people. Lazy people. And some hard working people. Jealous people. Mean people. Nice people. There is Global Warming. And war. And murder. And hate. And a virus that people refuse to protect each other, and themselves, from. And inequality. Poverty. Homelessness. Racism. Sexism. Homophobia. Transphobia. Slavery. Rape. Rights being denied to people just because they are different. And the fact that most humans are ironically inhumane. And it saddens me that after so much was done to bring us here, we are unappreciative and hateful. Like many others, I went through loneliness and bullying, but after searching for forever, I found many wonderful friends. And then, suddenly, I was no longer alone. Like a certain ball of energy after it exploded and expanded the entire universe. It was alone. And then suddenly, the universe was big, bright, and hopeful. In the future, I hope the world will be a better place. I hope that one day, people will be sensible enough to talk things out instead of starting a war. I hope that people will live in peace with each other. I hope that we will take care of our Earth. I hope that we will treat every living organism with kindness. But, unfortunately, hope can only do so much.

Black, white, yellow, green We’re all people, can’t you see? Brown, orange, pink, and blue, Why hate us ‘cause we have a different skin color from you? Red, purple, magenta, light blue, Why can’t we co-exist with you? Gray, cyan, light purple, dark green, We were enslaved since the early 15’th Dark red, dark cyan, and dark blue Since then we’ve been treated as less than you! This racism has been going on nonstop, It’s unjust, unfair, and has got to stop! We built this country from bottom to top, Yet we are hated and jailed… And killed.

I Want... / I Feel…

I want to live in an equal world. I want people's voices to matter. I want to be free. I want to be myself. I want to be "black enough" Even though I'm half white. I want to be able to love whoever I love. I want to know that that I want too much. I want to be the change that I want to see in the world. I want to make a difference. I want wanting to be enough. I want everyone, Every human on Earth, To be equal. Truly, Equal.

This Is a Love...

This is a love that you can't control. The type of love that you can't keep in a jar. A thing that makes you feel warm like eating a roasted marshmallow. When you love them so much you are willing to take a bullet for them. When you cant even express your love for them when they ask " why do you love me?"

IF WE WOULD ONLY SEE WITH OUR 💕 HEART The Nightly news poisons our minds, Stretching the stories to fill their time, Most of the time its only half the story. When they have nothing to report , They go over the latest news, Over and Over and Over again, Like beating a dead horse. I can’t stand it! You have the lefts, You have the rights, And you have the right now’s . We have Black, We have White, We have Yellow , And Brown. But did you know, We are all the same color on the inside? We all bleed red, And cry the same tears. Why don’t you close your eyes, And imagine you can’t see color, Feel with your heart, Do you still feel hate? I bet you’d feel a peacefulness, A feeling of Unconditional Love. Why do we have to be so divided?? Why do we have to choose a side? Can’t we just choose not to choose? If I must choose I choose Love. Because your life matters. ❤️

We Are Not The Color of our Skin The color of our skin is not who we are. Our “bodies” are just shells. Shells that house our souls. If we could see inside others, we’d see we are all made of the same thing And we all are connected by our souls connected to each other. When you judge someone You are really mirroring yourself What you don’t like about them You don’t like about yourself. So lets start first by loving ourselves Taking inventory Seeing what needs healed Though you don’t want to relive it You need to bring it up, to get it out. You’ll see that a lot of your behaviors We’re formed from your experiences Growing up. But your past doesn’t define you You can make your Present any way you want, Take your time and figure out Figure out how you want it all to play out You are the creator. Create Love not Hate.

I Want... / I Feel…

I want my people to be educated. I want my people to breath. I feel so tired. I feel so tired of repeating myself. I feel bent educating myself more and more to supply actions steps for our oppressor and they still have educated themselves none. I feel stuck in a foam pit. I want joy love and support for my people. I want them to smile more. I want them to laugh. I want them to enjoy the very life the Lord has blessed them with. And with education there will be frustration. But with education there will be liberation.

My voice is as sharp as the knife used to cut the fruit from my ancestors' tree. My voice cracks like the earth's hardness beneath my feet. This voice is for the women before me. This voice is for my niece. This voice is for those who are too afraid and too convinced that they are too weak to speak. This is a love that doesn't judge. A love that wraps around you and grips you so tight, it does not compare to a hug. This is a love as warm as the sun.

Jala

This is a love that is silent but ever present...like a mother holding a child within her womb...It's a love that we can call our own...like the first man who called the Sun a son...It's a love that...when broken down...brings us back to the first times...we sat down by campfires...and listened to everyone's stories.

This is the voice of those confined behind the red lines/ Where Jim's Crow's cawed upon the street post/ These voices by no means are miniature These voices move mountains/ Carve canyons and quake the Earth's surface/ These voices are the rafts in the waters/ We were told were too rough to swim/ These voices were the guiding light in dark of night/ When our lantern were dim These voices carried a nation on it's back like a camel in a caravan/ Across desolate and treacherous lands
