"The Somebodiness of Me" - Ruby Dee

I,I,I say I Am. 
I say I am Somebody. 
Somebody because You
You, You make me Somebody
Because You are part of, 
Because You share the Somebodiness of Me
See, when You laugh,
You make my lips a part of laughter 
When You cry, tension pulls me from inside
When You are hungry,
My food turns to poison, 
Makes me burst, 
Bony fingers clutch my tongue when I know Your thirst 
Because You are part of,
You, You share the Somebodiness of Me
See, You, You, You, You, You
Are at the other end of the steel spring of hate 
So, so I cannot hate
When You know My love,
My love will warm You, cleansing deep
So let Me,
Let Me take Your hand, feel Your face,
know Your heartbeat, and all YOUR doubts erase
Because You are part of
Because You share
The Somebodiness of Me.

“The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within - strength, courage, dignity.”

She had exactly that kind of beauty. Thank you, queen, for your grace, your resilience, your giving. 
#Salute to 91 purpose-fulfilled years.

Ignored… 
Until further notice. 
But I don’t need a mirror to see me. 
Mind’s eye open.
I wish I could give you this vision. 
I wish you’d stop resisting. 
There’s a reason I’m persistent. 
I’m on a 
Peace. LOVE.Belief.Knowledge. 
mission. 
I’m MJ and Pippin
The star and the assistant. 
Let’s go. 
Here’s to blown kisses…
πŸ’¨πŸ’‹βœŒοΈ
Here’s to known disses… 
No more clouds in my coffee. 
☁🍡🍻
Cheers to sky sippin’. 
Soaring above it all
I wish you’d come with me. 
I could do it alone 
But we would make a bigger difference
…Imagine us…
Together. 
It’s your decision. 
You say you’re down & out
So let me in,
Get lifted. 

~Mek

Expect GREAT things. 
Can’t let fear break wings…
Stay down to the green,
but 
Born to fly.
You and I, 
Let’s get high.

Sing. Sing. 
Sing for FREEDOM. 
We are the ones
We’ve been needing. 

~Mek

"We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated." #RIP #Queen #MayaAngelou  #salute 

A life well-lived. I thank you sincerely for LIVING. I thank you for writing, for inspiring, for being phenomenally you. 
“Phenomenal Woman” and “Still I Rise” were two of the first poems I memorized and performed. You begat this.  

I continue in the light of your legacy…

"Hell just fell 3000 more degrees cooler/ Y’all can’t measure my worth, But when you try, you’ll need a ruler made by all the Greek gods/ Because the odds have always been stacked against me/ When back’s against the wall I feel right at home…"
