LEMONADE

lemonade
      crunchy ice, beat it once.
                beat it twice.



Blackgirl chill joy 
You give me life 
When life gave me lemons
I reached across the waters that my ancestors have been displaced in and carried enough on my head to make the journey back home 
My sister gave me the sugar 
My mother gave me the zest
My grandmother gave me the jar
My girlfriends gave me spoon of support to stir stir stir
And keep going .
Black girl chill joy
You quench my thirst when no one else would .
Thank you . We are the ones we've been waiting for and we are going to heal. #freedom #LEMONADE
