No safe places

there are no safe places for me

quite a revelation as america begins to celebrate black history

if i identify as straight i must hate gays

if i am proud to be black i must hate all the other false created classifications of race

if i identify as a man i must hate women

if i call myself intelligent i must hate everyone with an uneducated opinion

cant be safe at home because its the ones that look like you not the outside racist that can do the most harm

dont say you are American because that identity is just synonymous with wrong

cant call yourself black/african/colored or negro because unless someone else names the identity of your people for you that labeling is evil

cant like sports or read books because one is lame and the other is your only way out the hood and will damage your brain

cant like more than one issue/cause or thang its not like you have a multitasking brain

there are no safe places to identify as me because wherever i turn someone wants to make me ashamed of claiming my rights/my life/my name



a great song

a good book

a quiet day

a cool winter breeze

my family ( some of the time )

my friends ( most of the time)

a great story

an interesting idea

a good conversation

a good nights sleep

a well done comicbook

a productive day at work

a good cd

a great song

learning something new

understanding something old

going bowling for my birthday

the thought of owing a black cat, a white huskie, and a liger

having the ability to get the things i said i always wanted on my own
