#PhotoPoem / by J. Ivy

"Each stride scribes a page of our story. History will be remembered by the pictures we paint. Strokes of genius will be determined by the cause of our effects. What's the reach of your embrace? When your face is no longer remembered what will you look like? Who will you live thru? What kind of love will your beauty mark? We're questioned by questions that are answered by the decisions we make. The drive of our passion. The courage to see it thru. The purpose that we live out in every moment. Pieces of this grand collage. This work of art called life. This blink of an eye. This chance to soul search for our souls. Our spirits yearn for more. So we learn more every single day. Make great strides. Battle the hate that waits around sharp corners. Hang our pride on the joy we find. We cry on the inside. Laugh out loud. Scream our power. Strike like lighting. Roll like thunder. Find our freedoms. Fall in love with freedom. Never let it go. Always let it show because you have nothing to hide. I have nothing to hide. You can't take the heart inside. You can't hurt the one on my sleeve. History is made when we burn our mask. When we crush the shackles pacified by guilt. When we remember who we are. When we find our stars and become one. Shining bright for the universe to see. This world will remember we." J. Ivy  #LinesOnMyMind #DigginInThePapes#EverydayIsBlackHistory Photo By: @coloroflife
