white women when you derail a conversation about uplifting, supporting, protecting, loving black girls, and black women with “All girls, all women” you are the equivalent of when men derail your conversations to say “not all men”.

When I say I love you,
I hope it sounds exactly like your name rings out coming from my lips:
Like a silent prayer.
Because even the quite ones sometimes love the loudest.
What I’m saying is this:
I love you loudly
So loudly
My entire body feels brand new.
This swarm of butterflies is doing its job because my heart feels new.
And it’s all because of you.

We all want to see
the view on top of the mountain.
Some of us are climbing,
Some of us fear the height
and pace back and forth on the bottom.
And some of us have gone back down
after being so close to getting there.

Start climbing,
keep climbing,
and don’t stop.

Even when you get used to the view,
there is always another one worth the adventure.
