Creative Rock Storm, Rocking Til The End

I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom how great is that? – Soledad O'Brien

Wounded

I’ve been wounded by racism

Wounded by sexual objectivity

Wounded by injustice

Wounded by homophobia

Wounded by white peoples “unconscious biases”

Wounded by the silence of moderate “liberal white people”

Wounded and taken advantage of by sexual predators

Wounded by stereotypes of black people

Wounded by death and grief

Wounded by sin

Wounded by perfectionism

Wounded by disregard for black people’s lives

Wounded by the need to survive

Wounded by fighting for my right to humanity

Wounded by betrayal

Wounded by having my voice be silenced

Wounded by my fellow wounded racial minority cis gendered and trans brothers and sisters

Wounded by the police shootings of black people

Wounded that people refuse to see or hear my pain, only believing in my strength

Wounded by mass shootings

Wounded by isolation and silence of being an “other”

Wounded by black men fighting for their humanity too

Wounded by white hatred and white supremacy

Wounded by all the accommodations I’ve made for white people
