Today I was looking through my cluttered Google Drive and I found a poem. Me and my friend made this poem for a middle school project after reading The Book Thief, which is a wonderful book full of symbolism. We printed out this poem and pasted it word by word to show chaos, and we painted a chasm to go along with it. At the bottom were dominoes. So, here it is:

The Chains of Dominoes
It's manipulation burning through us,
as humans, isn't that our job?
the innocence is pale compared to
the candlelight brought to the
opaque, calculated tyrant.
Slow yet rampagent,
we are dominoes,
falling apart.

Its the fire running,
and the weeds growing,
and the fear choking,
and the darkness muffling
thats choking our altruism,
and our corrupted souls.

The horrid sensation of burning
Watching as innocence is slowly turned to ashes by manipulation
But why does no one bother to stop it?
Him.
He watches as the light is engulfed by his hatred and deception
He watches as his power augments in the roaring flames.
The subjects are dominoes.
Falling apart by toxicity.

here's another one! why was I so bad at writing poems! :D

you should be loving me now.
love is remembering the bump on my finger
from writing these words,
empty words,
that mean nothing for they do not have sound.
this poem will never end,
it will simply stop movin'
-------------
this skin, stretched over brittle bones,
hides the softest flesh of humankind,
and spiderwebs of nerves, and veins aligned,
and the joints in my fingers, church domes.

spam? okay then ... watch this... time for some...
educational spam!

In the 1950s black women were expected to straighten their hair. Unstraightened hair was a cause for discrimination, especially in some black communities.

Image

Black women straightened their hair by coating it with protective pomade and combing it with a heated metal comb. This technique transformed the tight curls of African American hair into completely straight hair with a pomaded sheen.

Image


The newly styled hair was straight... until it got in contact with water.

Image

Late 1950 to 1960, cue some African countries finding lots of success. it was the time period when young african americans wanted to explore their identity more. The :afro: represented the pride of their origins, cultural, and physical traits of their heritage!

Image

More pride in their heritage caused protests to fight for their rights!
Image

moral of the story: afros turned into a symbol of poverty and uncleanliness to a symbol of pride!

even though i might not wear afros i still love the emoji :afro:

Well, I meant the over use of that emoji! Watch Masters of Sex - I loved it and they did touch some of the subject from back then and segregation too.

The guy from Good Omens plays in it as the Fertility ground break specialist. And is based on the real story/life of Masters and Johnson and their reproduction study. I loved it, wish they didn't canceled it.
