just where I stay

This isnt my home. Its just where I stay.

I am a domestic violence survivor and I know what it feels like to not feel safe at home.
I know what it feel like to see that this, whatever this is, it isnt love and it isnt good for me.

Mike Brown, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner… too much bad news.
all at the hand of the state,
protected from trial by the state.
denied any emergency medical care.

Mike a young man about to start college, about to start his life.

Tamir, a little boy, still playing with toys, alone, in the park… a child.

Eric, a man loving and providing for his family.

None of them angels,
yet none of them demons.
just human beings like the rest of us,
yet they are dead.

because… because… fuck,
because of no good goddamn reason.
Not one.
there is not one fucking good and justifiable reason.

This isnt my home. this is just where I stay.
