emotional roller coasters
pondering an understanding
eyes that rupture
in utter disgust,
another hashtag that shouldn’t be
the new norm-
where I shouldn’t be desensitized about
innocent lives taken for granted, taken away
These days continue on, how to move on
when there’s a time where
I’ll ever feel
To get our voices heard, we’re silenced…
silenced with teargassed, rubber bullets
striking the peace-
why be peaceful
when it’s an issue,
scrolling down my feed, it’s all what I see
headaches that stings like a bee, poisoning the evil inside
a river flow of anger, tears rushing down
the rounded, defined cheekbones
shaping my face
my physique, trembling,
stunning me with various
reasonings. My mind in a cluster
hell of sloppiness,
needs to be
being seen, recognized,
valued, worthy, presentable,
being accepted for who I am-
what I’m about
what I stand for
that we’re all human-
we’re all vulnerable,
to be me, my complexion
luxurious, so sleek
that I should be proud of this prize,
a prize that I was fortunate to be gifted.
to see the talent, the craft
that I continue to improve-
beating that stereotype of what I’m supposed to be.
yes, it’s who I am
who I’ll forever be… nothing is changing that.
