We are allowed to
feel angry. We are humans
who grieve our loved ones.

A poem a day for 2015 - for day 131 - Charleston

White man walks into
church where praying folks gather
open arms then shot
I am not ready to write a poem about Charleston. Not yet. One is brewing. I am not ready to let it out. Soon though.

A poem a day for 2015 - for day 130 - Believe

I help create. With God with
faith with my dreams too.
