Helpers and Healers

This poem was inspired in part by Catrice M. Jackson: International Speaker & Best-Selling Author.

helpersandhealers

On the backs of us
What you want?
Wait a minute!
You pull for it

We feel the pressure
Feel the pull
You’re pulling us
To you to help

To teach
To care.
To fix what we did not break!

While we die
We bleed out
But you don’t feel for us
See us, need us, just from us, of us

The unexplainable
The unimaginable
Resilience
Brilliance

We take care of you
While we are dying
While you and yours
are KILLING
Me and mine.

The world is burning
In a fire you lit
We die when you cry

Water is life and you drink my tears
And drown me in your platitudes and politeness

Positivity without truth and justice
Love and light without liberty
Creates pain and death.

Your kind
I mean, your kin
I mean, your skinkin
Are killing me with your
Garden variety
Suburbanite
Pumpkin spice latte
Non-fat
Americana flat
Kindness.

Kindness without action kills.
Kindness without love demeans.
Kindness without intimacy is complicity.

I am not your mammy.

my liberation

Green Forest Environmental Campaign PosterUntil you been

lost like me

loved (and unlovable) like me
abandoned like me

used like me

abused like me;

Your judgements

of me

are

irrelevant.

Your guidance

is

flawed.

Your advice

is

unsolicited.

Until you been lost like me,

you can’t understand

the power of being found

by

your own will

and

creation.

That is my liberation.

I’ve joined the ranks of amazing writers like nayyirah.waheed using #poetsofinstagram, #spilledink, #blackpoets and numerous other hashtags of which I am quickly becoming acquainted. I have even created my own #eggshellfreepoetry and #killinggeorgina.

I am posting image versions of my shorter poetic pieces along side reposts to amplify other artists, writers and marginalized voices.

Black and brown women

College, Students - Free pictures on Pixabay

I want to write something beautiful

My throat is full

And it burns

I want to write something enlightening

My head is a snow globe

Of truths and experiences

They swarm me, warm me, hold me close and whisper ‚Äúnobody cares, nobody cares, nobody cares‚ÄĚ

Hissssssssing

angry whispers in my ear

Seek to silence me and mine

‚ÄúNobody cares‚ÄĚ

A refrain as old as time

I want to write something beautiful

I want to write something liberating

I want to write something enlightening

I want to write something illuminating

I want to write something that breaks the chains, turns the tides, screams the truths of me and mine from all the peaks

Shining a light for all that seeks

To see black and brown women whole!

Black and brown women free!

Black and brown women held UP, not back.

Black and brown women served, not serving.

Black and brown women protected, not rejected.

Black and brown women wrapped with the care and tenderness we have provided the masses for ages. Hold us close, whispers like honey, sweet, dripping syrup:

You matter baby. You are loved lady. Beautiful. Soft and kind. Unlock the pictures in your mind and fill me with your truths. Baby you, black and brown woman, are gold. Write me something beautiful. Unfold your truths to be told.
