Pay attention to the signs
Stay and listen, you will find
Everything, ain’t rocket science
Every gem is not a diamond

But the pressure
The pressure will make you feel

Jhene Aiko
(The Pressure)

White man will say anything. “Niggas, Puerto Ricans! Don’t you write on the wall! It’s illegal. Graffiti!” Then he’ll find a mountain and put his face on it.

Paul Mooney (via afroflorist)

Sat by the fire
To witness gentle, but radical
Transformation ceased to be mindless
Create our own sweetness
At last growing the heart
