Truth Won’t Sleep

my heart

bruise mode

countenance on alert

racial injustice

constructed to hurt

US… county ’tis of thee

result of cause and effect

We, sardined in Middle Passage boat$

quarantined, milked welfare cheese

then denied the right to vote.

Coretta’s spirit is tempestuous

Ancestors’ tears aggravate our seas

you confederate flag wearing miserable skeletons0361.jpg

worse than a bag of fleas…karma


that you once held down, whipped, and kept blind.

We.. are screaming now for you to cease

and desistInside out

Before we are rewound back in minus time.

I am the Hill and the Mountain

Enemies attempt to climb, I am far above in my psyche

Love is the only friend of mine.©mushroom gatherers

  1. This literally brought me to tears. I, too, am finding it very difficult reading, watching, listening to all the hatred coming out of the closets, coming from people with whom I considered colleagues. I am a Filipina-American–I can’t go back, I won’t go back. I spent much of my teenage years being invisible, and I don’t want to lose the shadow I now cast. Love to you, When
