Love On

There’s some lyric that goes

“I need some ‘real good loving, because I’m troubled by the things that I see…”



In times like these, when my people are being slain in the streets.

When I fear for the safety of my brothers, father, cousins, friends, and significant other

When our freedom isn’t looking so free.

When I am angry, depressed, and resilient all at the same time

When so many people want me to shut up about my oppression

I do…I need to be loved on.

I need the little things and the grand gestures because, it is rough out here from every angle

I meditate- seeing my loved ones faces when I close my eyes

I see the light within the darkness when I can come together with the lives that I fear for

We can laugh. We can escape if only for a few hours

Love on your family.

Love on your best friend.

Love on your people….
