Protest in Atlanta, GA
2020
 
For those of us
who were imprinted with fear
like a faint line in the center of our foreheads
learning to be afraid with our mother’s milk
for by this weapon
this allusion of some safety to be found
the heavy-footed hope to silence us
For all of us
this instant and this triumph
We were never meant to survive
 
A Litany for Survival, Audre Lorde
