i don’t know what to say.

This time it’s not a far away story
it’s not a past experience.
This time we’re not sitting in a circle, 
it’s you telling me what happened.
You’re not crying, but my heart is shattering.
Shattering in little pieces, jagged at the touch
I’ve been here so many times— the stories, the anger, and the heartache are always the same for me
It makes me want to go hurt something
Do something violent, find some form of revenge
Eventually I remember Dr. King’s words
“Hate begets hate”
But how long will this going to continue?
How many women will it take before something is done?
How many people will we have to lose?
