I’m Tired

Artist unknown

I’m tired of smiling when I don’t feel like it

I’m tired of being considered an angry black woman

I’m tired of being asked how I feel after

Seeing another brother or sister murdered

I’m tired of being asked to help someone understand why black lives matter

Inside I want to scream

I DON’T FEEL LIKE SMILING

I COULD CARE LESS IF YOU THINK IM ANGRY

AND IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF BLACK LIVES MATTER

THEN THATS ON YOU

I DON’T HAVE TIME TO TEACH A CLOSED MIND NOR DO I WANT TO

I AM UNAPOLOGETICALLY TIRED
