Naked Reflections Poetry: Shameless and Unapologetic

The Privilege To Be

No Gravatar

June’s Prompt for Day 4 of 5: Write your destiny. I imagined a world different from the world I live in today.

 

The Privilege To Be

What if we attack hatred

With the same fire that we attack love?

No one policing the thickness of 

Our manes and braids, 

Crowns of grandma’s love

And great-grandpa’s strength.

They wouldn’t murder the souls of

Children whose parents cross borders to

Cater to people who never look at them.

 

What if…

No one shamed who married whom

No one denied us the right to breathe

No one had to be hashtagged

And body-bagged.

What if we attack hatred

Not because it’s trending or 

Caught on camera, but because 

Everyone should have the privilege

To be loved

To be safe

To be seen

To be.
