Overheard in teachers’ room about a 5th grader: “she looks like a street walker”

Slut shaming isn’t cool guys

Angel Haze found poem

I’m a lyrical, criminal, general
take shots but never subliminal
I spit that gospel, holy ghost pentecostal
It seems like yesterday I was nothing
then all of a sudden I’m like a volcanic eruption
then all of a sudden it’s like a spontaneous combustion
I woke up one sunday morning, stopped believing in Jesus
stopped believing in churches, I stopped believing in preachers
I realized I was a teacher, not just one of the heathens
I’m born to destroy the fallacies, start creating believers
start creating the leaders, tell ‘em who they should follow
nobody but themselves, especially if they hollow

I am… whatever they say I am

I am living today as someone who I had not yet become yesterday
and tonight I’ll only borrow pieces of who I am today
to carry with me to tomorrow
no, I’m not gay
no, I’m not straight
and I sure as hell am not bisexual, damn it!
I am whoever I am when I am it
locked away for two years to keep me on the inside
because she’d rather see a part of me die than me thrive
so instead of sailing I live like a human parachute
the more I’m falling the more I’m compared to you

I am… lyrical intrusion

I’m sorry mom but I really used to blame it on you
and then it happened like it happened like millions of times
and I would swear that I would tell but then they’d think I was lying
and now the power that he held was like a beacon of mine
so I got used to it, I put up with that shit
and now my hate was so volcanically eruptive and shit
I used to cut myself open just to feel I was living
but when living is just dying then there’s no longer a difference
there’s no longer existence, and there’s no longer persistence
and there’s no longer a drive there’s existing only on division
my biggest problem was fear and what being fearful could do
I never got to be a kid so that’s as far as I grow
my mental state is out of date and that’s as far as I know
then I grew up and I wasn’t within reach of these men
but that didn’t keep me from the reach of my sin
I was afraid of myself
I had no love for myself
I tried to kill I tried to hide I tried to run from myself
I didn’t want to be attractive to nobody else

I’m nasty, I’m insane, I’m too much, I spit grains
to sit and stay she learned it from her mother

bitch bad, woman good, lady better
they misunderstood

I’m I’m the queen bitch
gimme my crown

baby girl, respect is so definitive
If he can’t give it, then there ain’t no giving in
I need to know that somehow our destiny matters
and you’ll keep my heart intact if the rest of me shatters
don’t be a hard rock when you really are a gem
don’t be treated like a 5 when you really are a 10

I need to know that I’m safe within your grasp
and if ever I’m off, you’ll race to keep me on track
cuz I would crack the clouds open just to show you heaven
and lift you up when you get down just to show you leverage
and if you’ve never felt love, I’ll make it tangible
and show you how to do it right, I could be the manual

I accept you for you when I don’t understand
and love you for you because this is who I am
I accepted you for you when I didn’t understand
so love me for me because this is who I am
