Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
Hold, hold onto each other
Hold, hold onto each other
(This is what the world sounds like)
Nah, f–k you, n—a

You got me f–ked up
F–k you, f–k you

I swear, I’m tired of these emotional ass, ungrateful ass b—hes (shut the f–k up)
Unstable ass, confrontational ass dumb b—hes
You wanna bring a n—a down even when I’m tryna do right
We could go our separate ways right now
You could move on with your life, I swear to God

F–k you n—a, you love a pity party, I won’t show up
Always act like your s–t don’t stink, motherf–ker, grow up
Forever late for s–t, won’t buy s–t, sit around and deny s–t (man)
F–k around on a side b—h, then come f–kin’ up my s–t
What? F–kin’ up yo’ s–t? You must be bleedin’ and more s–t
B—h, I don’t know s–t, f–k yo’ feelings (you some on h-e s–t)

What I Learned Sundays – Normalize Mourning

I saw the title of an article that mentioned how Black Panther: Wakanda Forever speaks to normalizing Black mourning. I looked to find it after watching the film, as not to encounter spoilers, but all was for naught. More importantly, I chose to make my own path to mourn, especially after this week. I historically try to be the supportive person, and not address my needs when mourning…but I opened myself up to that rawness today.

I don’t know where to start…in March of this year, my dear friend Bob reached out to me. I had shared Prince experiences and more with he and his bride, Lisa, and last saw him at Red Phone Booth in Atlanta, 2 nights before I moved to California. We chatted about family, Mother’s Day had just passed, and his sons birthdays. We talked of seeing each other upon visits. Then a pandemic happened.

The Echo
10/2020

The echo of silence in my mind is deafening,
Surrounded by the inadequacies of others, that they try to place on you,
The shrinking of your life, for their gain,
Their solace, Continue reading
