Black Love-By Careon Roberts

-Black Love-…black love turn on da news/another one dead what do we do?/gun down or do we shoot/birth of a nation look at roots/r.I.p Dr king I’m talking Martin Trevor Martin/half in prisons half in coffins/my brother died my mother lost em/my mother cried they mother cried/under oath they all lied/charge acquitted they was whiiiiite/if he was black he would of fried/time to stand pick a side/gun in hand live or die/too many to count they outside/behind they badge they duck and hide/handcuffs arresting me/black lives matter/black love till da death of me…..a poem from c-style.

I'm a 28 year old, mother of 2 beautiful daughters. I love to meet new people and learn new experiences. I have a reached a point in my life, where I feel the need to be more conscientious about my role in this world. One issue that I struggle with is the fast paced lifestyle we live in today. Everything is given to me and I rarely take the time to seek and find information hidden within books. It's so sad to say...but I usually get my news from social media. I find this to be a problem. I also realized, that although I am very proud to be black and I always say support black businesses...but the truth is, I rarely go out of my way to support black business. My spending habits rely solely on what deals are available. It really doesn't matter who's selling. I decided to start putting my money where my mouth is and support anyway I can. One of my chosen efforts to support black businesses is to support black authors. They rarely get the recognition they deserve. It is my mission to highlight the works of black authors and to also encourage others to do the same.
