This is right before you drop your kid off at her final year of college. Right before you receive hate mail because you challenge white supremacy. Right before you remember who you be & dance to songs that you don’t know like you wrote them. Right before you sing to songs that you do know until your voice goes hoarse & the stadium is full of people that love this young rapper — especially when he sings he N-word like prayer. Right before you get right and walk out — cause you remember you got work to do. And people to love. And a daughter that is already a beating heart of her own free will. And this was supposed to be a post about how I’m in love with my child’s hope and talent and wit and laughter...how I will bury anything trying to snatch away her future.
