A Friend of Mind

“She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It’s good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind.”

-Toni Morrison

Who Remains Standing

First,
Erase your name,
unravel your years,
destroy your surroundings,
uproot what you seem,
and who remains standing?
Then,
rewrite your name,
restore your age,
rebuild your house,
pursue your path,
and then,
endlessly,
start over, all over again.
By Andree Chedid

Little Black Girl

Little black girl
This is for you
In case the world is busy
and forgets to sing to you.
They’ve got more important ships to sail
like building malls and saving whales
so they don’t see
That you’re…
The real endangered species.

–“Little Black Girl” -Rebekah Johnson

A Dream Deferred

 

What happens to a dream deferred?

 

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?

 

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

 

Or does it explode?

 

—Langston Hughes (1902-1967)
