I bet Americans would quickly become antiwar if the people with the most money had to go to war while the poorest stayed home tweeting “people have to die in a war.” Or “Our military is bringing democracy to the world.” And hashtagging #SupportOurTroops #BootsOnTheGround

Me and You
I like you
But I like me more
I’ll love you
But I’ll love me more
I want to adore you
But I need you to see me
I don’t know you
But I can’t help but wonder and see
I want to know if you are real
But everything in me says you’re not
The doubt is killing me slowly
But not slow enough. It’s torture
I need to be free of this obsession
But I tremble at the thought of our end
I Quit You
I quit you like I quit cigarettes. Each day that I awake, I remind myself that I don’t need you. With every breath that I take, I remember that you are not the air that I breathe. You will not be the cancer in my heart. My growth will not be stunted by someone who’s stagnant. The flame that we burned together has been rubbed out of existence on the sole of my boot. There’s only ash.
Classism and Ableism – (originally posted on Twitter)
My eczema gets inflamed and itchy when I wear masks. Open skin has led to & will lead to an infection. My Dr. told me to wear a mask as little as possible. So I spend most of my time outdoors. I don’t ask others to wear masks because of my situation. I wear one if I need to.
I’m not immunocompromised. I’m relatively healthy. But can still succumb to COVID. I refuse to put my health in the hands of millions of motherfuckers. I think COVID is the first of many pandemics, according to Sleepy Creepy Joe, & we will all need to adjust how we live.
We live in an individualistic society as evidenced by the shit laws in this country. The most vulnerable are never protected. Now, the most vulnerable has no class barrier. People don’t have money for the N95 masks being told to try harder to find free masks 👁️👁️
No one is going to protect you like you will protect yourself. I have said the same thing to family members. The onus is on us to protect ourselves and also to stay away from the most vulnerable, and anyone, if we could have been compromised. This is the world you created
There’s no kumbaya moment coming. You people have sat and watched the poor die from a plethora of “preventable” diseases while saying “they should take better care of themselves.” Y’all never say “We should stop allowing junk to be sold as food. It’s killing people.”
And of course there are poor immunocompromised people. I’m not ignoring them. But you probably are…. As you always have. I’m sick of people with money complaining about the fact that they’ve lost access to venues because of selfish people when poor people never had that access.
My ex used to say “nobody ever understands anything until it happens to them.” And this is what I’m witnessing. There’s been no real legislation helping the poor for anything. Most of the legislation either criminalizes poor people or strips them of their dignity. Y’all did that
Each and every time you let the election cycle go by without the least bit of consideration for poor people, you say you don’t GAF about poor people. This has been going on for decades. Now imagine being poor and everyone else not giving AF about you. This is where you are
When profit is the main driver for medicine, we’ll never have cures. We’ll never have timely treatments. How can they have studied a vaccine for decades that works so poorly? Where are the EFFECTIVE treatments? For anything? Popping pills for a lifetime hardly seems fair.
COVID has become endemic. With no cure, effective treatment or effective vaccine that STOPS the spread in sight, we’re in this for the long haul. People can’t be expected to wear masks in perpetuity. So it’s a good idea to demand treatment instead of yelling at strangers
America’s COVID death rate is directly related to the state of American’s health and the state of the healthcare system. While I’m here, shout out to all of the COVID vaccine injured that vaccinated to “protect others” and now those others don’t GAF about you. You deserve better
Sweet Memories of Yesterday
Sweet memories of yesterday run through my mind
Deep moments of today fill my body
Tantalizing promises of tomorrow consume my soul
You’re Allowed To Move On
If you like/love someone because of who they showed you, and it turns out that was a lie, you don’t have to stay the course. You’re allowed to reassess, cut your losses and move on…
We Need To Get Healthier, Mentally, Physically, Politically and Socially
YOUR mask and YOUR vaccination won’t protect YOU but I should wear a mask to protect YOU? I wear a mask to protect MYSELF and MY family. I don’t ask anyone to wear a mask unless they are coming into my house. Y’all gotta get a grip. Fix YOUR behavior and your HEALTH. Y’all will say the disease is airborne and that animals can get it. If they can get it, they can spread it. I haven’t seen a masked beaver in a bit.
Y’all talking about masks and vaccines, where’s the major health initiative to reduce obesity, heart disease etc? Where are the government PSA’s that added sugars in processed food is the main culprit of bad health? It’s been more than 2 years, has your health improved? Anxiety, isolation and depression are also bad for your physical health.
When we say that the U.S. needs universal healthcare, this is what why. Y’all think healthy people, who contract COVID are just dying? Or are they not getting treatment early enough because they can’t afford it? And by the time they figure out that they have to afford it, it’s too late. What happened to the monoclonal antibodies? Remember throughout Delta, it wasn’t made readily available even though it was more effective than the vaccines. Not a conspiracy. Facts.
It’s clear that a populace with bad health won’t stand a chance against COVID. That’s the answer. Not these B.S. vaccines that do not stop the spread AND allow for long COVID & death. It’s a disgrace that Americans hate their neighbors but love this country 🇺🇲 that don’t love you back. Somehow, health issues are now the responsibility of your neighbors and not a discussion for you and your doctor.
Also, when did everyone start trusting everything the government said? We’re living in frightening times. I see fascism’s a coming
Don’t nothing hit better than a love song when you’re in love. They touch on every emotion and action of your love or relationship. Played on repeat because they are speaking to your soul. As soon a your ass falls out of love, them shits hit you in the gut, rip your heart out and stomps on it for fun.
Neo Soul Love
Our love is neo soul; rhythmic, connecting and powerful.
Before you put out a thirst trap, make sure people wanna drink what you’re pouring… Otherwise, it’s just a puddle.
