I remind myself to spit truth to power, no matter the color. To walk in justice and love for everyone.

And to never be silent.

(i’m gonna take a little break. i haven’t had a real vacation — in years. writing for freedom — a poem a day, still — and supporting the kids with 4 college essays to give feedback on by friday, i’m not even their teacher anymore lol, is hard work. it never ends. so i’m making some time for much needed self care. 160 today. working my slave labor gig. and writing. dang. I’m pretty done with bitter women trying to destroy other’s happiness because they can’t find love…smh

Try this:

Love yourself.
