What We’re Gonna Do Now

The beauty of black people is that tomorrow, we’re gonna get up.

We’ve been here before.

We’re gonna shower, get our children ready for school, and go to work.

We’ve been here before.

We’re gonna smile at our boss, at our co-workers.

We’ve been here before.

We’re gonna do our jobs.

We’ve been here before.

We’re gonna kiss our babies and tuck them in.

All the while simmering below.

All while giving less than zero fucks.

Because we’ve been here before.

Because the fire next time.

Because ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬
