Puddle or Well
|I'm more than what you see, touch, taste, and hear. I could talk about myself for days and you still couldn't fathom my depth. I can be as shallow and temporary but as wet as a Puddle or I can be as deep, fulfilling, and long term as a Well.|
When we say BLACK girls and BLACK boys must be protected at all costs, it is because society has shown time and time again that their/our lives, their/our dignity, and their/our future is of little to no importance to them.
We don’t say ‘ALL’ for a reason; ‘all’ of us are not afforded the same things, like justice. “All” of us are not seen as precious enough to be protected. “All” of us are not lost, stolen, or forgotten.
You step up and puff out the crooked ‘S’ on your chest and say ‘all’ when you’re already in that number. We speak out and say ‘black’ because we should be, too."
