raging/blazing/brave


raging/blazing/brave

by Vanessa Maki

our fires are snuffed out early on in life

we as black women have to build our fires again

then the world rains down on us

& we re build our fires

we grab whatever we can find

paper, wood, lighter fluid

then we get our fires started up again

raging / blazing / brave
