I hope the two of you go stark raving mad together,
I hope I drown and that you live forever
and never, ever ever ever
forget the pain you caused instead of loving me better.
I don’t care if Mike Brown was going to college soon. This should not matter. We should not have to prove Mike Brown was worthy of living. We should not have to account for the ways in which he is suitably respectable. We should not have to prove that his body did not deserve to be riddled with bullets. His community should not have to silence their anger so they won’t be accused of rioting, so they won’t become targets too.

Atmosphere,
When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold
When you smile and she doesn’t return it
Give her room and don’t disturb it
If it makes it hurt less to curse and fight
Go ahead and hate the world girl you earned the right 

But she still dreams after she woke, tight hold on that hope
Sometimes it can seem so cold do what you gotta do to cope

There’s only so many times you can fake love

Before its recognized as an ugly truth.

Some holes

May be too deep

To get out of

When the darkness

Gets mistaken

For Light.

I advise

You go no further.

I am not your lost love

I was not lost

I was destroyed

This Mike Brown Story is sickening. For those that don’t know, the cops shot an 17 year old kid because they suspected he stole candy from a store. They shot him 10 times, killing him, then leaving his body in the streets for hours. People from the community protest and rally against the cops and what do they do? Bring military weapons out and police K9’s. I’m sorry, but I was under the impression that police dogs were for sniffing drugs, no? This is crazy. This is what modern day genocide looks like. There is no article on it as of yet, why? Cause Amerikkka don’t care about brown boys and girls. The fact that one has to learn this from twitter says it all. Again, this is modern day genocide. White people are always the quickest ones to defend the cops because they’re not on the receiving end of this bullshit. Telling black people “don’t give the police a reason to fuck with yo black ass” is up there with telling women “don’t wear provocative clothes so you won’t get rapped.” The worst part about all of this is that A: this boy was schedule to start his freshman year of college this upcoming Monday and B: those cops are going to get away with it. John Crawford, Jordan Davis, Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, Andy Cruz, Michael Brown, Amadou Diallo, Darius Simmons, Johnathan Ferrell Trayvon Martin… when does it end? #MikeBrown #Ferguson #Missouri #PoliceBrutality #Cops #YoungBlackTeen #Genocide

stop letting cops get the fuck away with their bullshit
