Alice in Wonderland

FREE WRITING

Fantabulous visions of all things glittering and gold
Thoughts and feelings are bold
Ideas that lie with stories untold
Concepts outside the mold
 
Everything topsy tervy
Living in a world from the perspective of the upside down
Imagination dragging my life around
Occasionally,
Hard enough for me to drown
 
The rabbit hole is where I reside
Where I consider myself alive
Falling and falling
Passing the world around me at 100 miles an hour
The vertigo of thought...

Not enough

FREE WRITING

You know what? 
I'm tired 

I'm tired of having to prove myself
My words under fire
Tired of the code-switching
Tired of the endless bitching
Tired of the insults and the n-word
and all the other things I've heard

I'm never enough.

I'm not enough to take offense
But I'm too much to ignore it

I'm not enough to feel tense
around cops
But I'm too much to not

My hair isn't light enough to be white
My undertones aren't...

What they won’t see.

Mirror mirror on the wall
Why must people care at all?
The color of my skin
Instead of who I’ve been
People’s personal Prejudice 
Making assumptions
Causing dysfunctions

When all we need is proper repercussions
Sometimes all we want is for them to understand
What they don’t see
What we want them to see.
We tell police “Think before you shoot, instead of shoot before you think”
Maybe we won’t put the nation on the brink
