"blood on the white bed sheets
I lay in bed, I sleep for days
shoving the cracks of light
that creep through my curtains
back into the sun

I hold fire in between my hands
I listen closely to the secrets of the flame
I lift it and burn a hole through my heart
it does not hurt me
because I was made in fire
I was born beneath
the devil of the pit

and now nothing
will ever hurt me again
I am made from steel

you’ll see me when I rise
with the owls in the night
flying from the burning windows
of my childhood home
and my fathers dead fists”

Not many! Because you bring them down to this type of level where they feel like I don’t got nothing to live for! They gonna try to take me out anyway!”





A mother’s worst nightmare.

She was preaching

RIP Michael Brown
Let’s don’t erase the identity of this grieving woman speaking truth to power. She’s Michael Brown’s mother and her name is
Lesley McSpadden. From the earliest hours after her son’s murder she’s been demanding accountability and transparency from a public body that has refused both at every turn.
