Grief is hard. We know that.
Especially when the suffering is long
I knew you even though we never met because you are me
Protect black women
Why haven’t we been guarded?
Where is our safe haven after giving birth to a nation ?
Your name is powerful to me
There’s value in your eyes
I pray this day for glory to shine along side us
We march when we don’t want to move
It’s the only way we can survive
Revival is taking place in the human race
And I just want you to know the ugly parts of this world are not a reflection of you
You are pure. You are true.
Our reflection is of the many women who have died unjustly
Our hearts hurt for the hits we take daily for just being who we are
I pause to unite with all in spirit
Together we will breathe again.
