“from the eyes of a Black woman”

watching freedom writers

watching the world i live in

my mother used to say:

“bullets don’t got no name on them”

what they had:

careless, relentless aim

as i got older 

bullets held more significance

then the life it hit

bullets

a metal projectile

that projects

fear, hate, narcissism

a (man] made machine

to destroy man, children, women

 

 

bullets replace lives

BLACK lives that are significant

carry dignity

and a warm innocence that speaks to what the world needs most

by a Black woman whose life definitely matters
