Black lives matter
Rest in power to George Floyd and those who unjustly died before him. I deleted this because I thought it was trash then reposted, to the kind person who commented on the original post I read it and thank you.

When I was younger

When I was younger my friends and I would talk about the future

About how many kids we wanted and how our lives would be

I would say "I want lots of kids maybe even three or four" I would say "but I want a son first, so he can protect his siblings"

I laugh at myself

The innocent thoughts and joy that consumed my head have disappeared overtime

Now I tell my friends I don’t want any kids

No sons. No daughters.

I don’t want a knock on the door I don’t want a phone call I don’t want to see a video of my child dying

Screaming for me Praying for their life Begging that I come to save them as people ideally stand by and watch them suffer

I don’t want to see my child with angel wings and a halo I don’t want #justicefor— I don’t want protests just to put a murderer in jail even when there’s video proof of the crime

I want my future child to be able to go to school To drive To walk with their hood up or down To be able to walk alone To take out their wallet To buy skittles To go to parties To cash a check To go to the store

To breathe.

When I was younger my friends and I would take about the future

About how many kids we wanted and how our lives would be

I would say "I want lots of kids maybe three or four" I would say "but I want a son first so he can protect his siblings"

I laugh at myself.
