If we genuinely seek transformation—of ourselves, of our relationships, of the world around us—for the sake of human rights and the expression of our human freedom, we must actively pursue ideas outside of familiar boxes. This means:
The more you choose to hear beyond yourself, the more distinct your own voice becomes.
You become the twirler of your own inner fire.
The target becomes clear.
Your rest and your care makes you ready.
Your voice is a different voice.
You celebrate this non-monolithic way that
black spreads and gets into it all.
Our ancestors celebrate, too.
When their bodies left,
their egos return soft as
when they came here.
You are thankful for this
Spirit of love your folk
know in this vast void.
I am thankful that Spirit is not bound by the limits that humans have created. We must walk with our feet on a certain ground-or maybe even across several. Meanwhile, our hearts and hands continue to build more of what we have never seen before.
OH, AND SOME QUANTUM AFROFUTURISM FO YA. SO MANY WAYS TO GET FREE:
Some days you have to remember what love truly is.
It is 'I accept you. All that you are and believe yourself to be. You are amazing.'
I believe this can cure hurt. I think it does much for those who may hurt themselves, commit suicide, or feelings of not belonging. Think about that. Really...consider it.
Taking the time to consider all that we have found to be whole about ourselves, whether through spirituality, religion, connection with others, art, etc., is a very powerful thing. This is what people are longing for...real people who connect WITH you. People who love beyond judgement or ideas of what should be and understand that there is something beautiful in truly loving people.
The funny thing is...love is probably one of the only things we didn't have to be taught. Instead, it becomes the thing that we have to relearn.
