Whats Worth Protecting.
Skins made of steel protect the good words.
full of the past, those dreams
filled with the future, those dreams
packed away on shelves
ghosts waiting to haunt, to taunt
so we pick
and we choose
we become our own words
it is the solitude of it all.
Setting the stage for a million words that never flowed delicately from Her tongue always at a loss for voice but the loud tangle of thoughts in Her head webbed an intricate map of stories that if you were privy to, if you could follow the course, they were yours to keep forever,
like Her and her loyalty,
all yours, until you let her slip away.
And each time before She goes,
you can watch as she wraps Her belt tightly around herself so that the light does not slip for Her soul as she dreams of holding on.
“it whispers my name, calls me in and tells me to sit a while and watch as the ribbons of light dance across the lines,
it’s the light at the end of the tunnel”
it tells me
one day, i’ll put on my wings and climb those beams and take flight.
but for now, i’ll just sit and listen to the silence. ***

I learned something very interesting going to the National African American museum in DC which is The Newyork conspiracy or they also call it the negro revolt of 1741. It funny how they named it even though the revolt was a union of slaves and poor whites to burn down the city and kill the rich whites. The name should be the mistreated against the rich white bigots. Also historians supposably disagree that such a revolt even happened even though a trial was done and people where hanged and burned and put on display for the public to see to deter another revolt, seems like they didn't want to acknowledge that blacks and whites unified and fought against the rich what better way is than remove or discredit it from history all together. 🤔
Museums are more important than you think. Here's how we can use them to save the world.
