Harbinger…

I wanted to write about the pointless killing of an unarmed black kid by a police officer.

I wanted to write about the double standard that exists in America… that results in a Caucasian man being able to carry a gun into public place with no issue but a Black man picking up a toy gun in  a Walmart gets gunned down by cops.

I wanted to write about depression, and how it is a disease, not a state or frame of mind that one should just get over… regardless of how good their life seems from the outside.

I wanted to write about the value of life and humanity, but felt like it was an act futility.

 

 

Lunar Understanding

I find myself lamenting my actions in the wake of yesterday
Ostensibly not happy with the behaviors taken in my past life
I lay my head down to rest, knowing that tomorrow is a new month
And although only cosmetic I always feel renewed 
Almost as if the Lunar cycle cared about my mind’s ambitions
