My words can often fail me
in my quest to find the “right” ones.
I’ll easily let you take my tongue
while I become
a smiling skeleton.
And the time to speak
will quickly pass me
before I can decide
to stay as quiet as expected
or say what is shouting inside.


I may not fully understand, but I do know that we are created equal, everyone deserves love and kindness, and no one should feel unsafe or unvalued. Racism and injustice should not be stood for. Black Lives Matter.
