Our Child(ren)

I find it nearly impossible to utter words on the shootings of our children. The part of me that can feel that is locked away because if she came out it would be a tsunami for these mufukkas. Shots in their faces at point blank. Razing over their houses. You see how I am on a good day about white terror. I’m actually not on this forgiveness and mercy bullshit. The God that I believe in is a God of wrath. Myron Golden says God don’t love everybody and I’m inclined to agree. Shots in the face for these mufukkas. Diseases upon their lineages for 100 generations. Vengeance is the best teacher.

My son, may you arise in full strength.

White terror may still be the norm, but not for long.

If I started crying, I wouldn’t stop.
