Being Black

FREE WRITING

Being black means suffering,
going through hell,
being treated as "less than" because of our blackness.
Being black is being labeled as "angry"
when we speak our minds.
Being black is being labeled as "ghetto"
when we use basic slang.
Being black means enduring pain,
discrimination,
and violence due to our blackness.
Being Black is the fury we feel
when someone says "All Lives Matter."
If "All Lives Matter,"
then why are so many Black Lives being taken?
On this...

BLACK IN AMERICA

PROMPT: The Fight for Justice

*Trigger Warning: Contains sensitive references about slavery and discrimination*
Being black in America 
has become such a sin.
We want racism to end, 
but how did it begin?
When they chained us together 
and threw us on a ship.
Make one wrong move
and we got the whip.
White people were on top
while we were down below.
We had no rights
all thanks to Jim Crow.
They raped us, 
and they beat us.
To the point where we died ...

Fakes and Phonies

FREE WRITING

People say they're genuine,
the real deal, you know?
But there's always a moment
where true colors start to show.
They may be pretty,
they may be ugly.
The truth can be disturbing,
not all cute and snugly.
They put on a facade
to fool their peers.
Then they'll stab you in the back
while they whisper in your ears.
They live by the old saying,
"fake it till you make it."
Refusing to show any realness,
not even a...

Loved Her to Death

FREE WRITING

    As Oliver sits in the corner of his room, he stares at his girlfriend's lifeless body. Blood spews out of her head, as red as the devil himself. He starts to crawl toward her body, careful not to touch the blood. He gently moves a thick strand of her golden blonde hair out of her face.
    "I'm sorry," he whispers tearfully. "I'm so sorry, Dani." He cries over her body, regretting the events that caused her demise.

What America Has Come To

FREE WRITING

The system is broken,
this we all know.
Minorities fall,
and majorities grow.
The whites are wealthy,
and people of color are oppressed.
"Them" they choose to protect;
"us" they choose to protest
They judge us because we're "colored,"
which they dubbed us back then.
They treat me like a foe
instead of a friend.
They beat us like animals
and treat us like nothing.
Call us horrible names
then tell us to stop fussing.
They scream "All lives matter," ...

Cry

FREE WRITING

I can't imagine being punished for being a girl. This is also horrible irony, considering it's the man who decides the gender of a baby.
