Reneé Drummond-Brown writes

Life ain’t been so easy
for us, since the time we
belligerent-boisterous-battered seas.
Since bondage.
Since brandings.
Since slavery.
Since beatings.
Since laboring.
Since moaning.
Since breastfeedings.
Since rapings.
Since hangings.
Since bombings.
Since killings.
Since marching.
Since pleading.
Since penitentiaries.
Since existing.
Life ain’t been so easy.

Dedicated to: There’s a difference between living, and existing.
