my soul aches

why must our melanin be a threat to you?
is it because we were once kings and queens?
the very history that you tried to bury is what we are uncovering today and you're scared?
we milk your tax dollars but you fail to provide a system where we can actually succeed without being rich?
BLACK LIVES MATTER, although non violent, is a terrorist group yet cops can kill our unarmed people and walk free?
black people wake up, walk out of our homes and think "am I next?", something a white person will never have to do but we are just "seeing things"? wake up white America, ignorance is not bliss
capturing someone in there most in their most intimate space (their room and their bed) is so beautiful to me. It's the place where they feel most comfortable. It's their space. Personal space and a space of tranquility it's most important for a persons sanity. Whether it's where you blast Frank Ocean's Blond all day or paint your life away, it's YOUR space and your sanctuary. Spending time by yourself in your own space is essential to mental wellnes
I love addressing issues of beauty standards to remind people that we are constantly fed lies through the media about how we should look. ESPECIALLY as women and young girls.

the beauty of disposable cameras is that once the roll of film is done and developed, the camera is thrown away. Even though it takes beautiful pictures and allows the world to see how you view people and places and things it is just...disposable. We as humans need to learn how to let go • throw it away baby

I love my natural hair and I love finding products that are all natural to improve my hairs health. This information is trivial, yes I know but I love embracing my natural state. It gives me a sense of freedom. I love when people stare at my hair in awe. You can look but don't touch my hair. • there's freedom in the fro
I got so excited when I saw this. I love catching rainbows in random places. The light hit the wall just right at that exact moment for me to see. The way I see it...everything in life happens at the right moment. You are meant to be exactly where you are right now. Everything that happens to you today, last month, and this entire year was supposed to happen and is essential to your growth. I reflect on my past experiences much like this rainbow • reflection & refraction
What would this world be like without any color? What would you look like? How would we view other people? Would we find a new way to describe things? Would we know what flowers to get someone?

Without colors our world would be dull in more ways than one. • orange and blue
