The Revolution Looks Like Black Love

 

The revolution looks like Black love.

The revolution looks like Black love

because Black love is the revolution.

 

Beautiful Black bodies

birthing beautiful Black babies

until all we see is we

until all we see is us

and that would be enough

for me

trust.

 

Because I believe in Black love.

Because I believe in Black love.

Because I believe in Black love.

 

Even when I am told not to

Even when I am sold not to.

 

I believe because I know

how powerful

how magical

how radical

it is for us to love ourselves

and for us to love each other

every sibling

every sister

every brother

when we live in a world that is convinced

that we are not worthy of it

and whose sole purpose it seems is to convince us too

so when we choose Black love –

when I say I choose to love you

and you

and you

how is that anything but a revolution?
