man, this has been too sad...
saw domineque monday and said goodbye to her yesterday. She'll be cremated today. I was on go-mode since creating the fundraiser that as soon as I walked in the mortuary, I saw Unika and we just held each other and broke down.
Yesterday, there were some girls @ the mortuary trying to go inside to see D.. they didnt even know her, just wanted to be nosy bc they recognized these big posters we had n realzed she was from YT. kind.of annoying.
I've been spending time with her fam, wife and other friends. I got to tell them about you guys .. they were really happy about the support. Gentria is so out of it but trying to atay strong..
Today I plan on getting a small tattoo- butterfly with the body shaped like the awareness ribbon. it'll have three colors to represent breast cancer awareness(my mom,gran, and aunts had it), child abuse awareness ( many of the children I work with who I've grown attached to have gone through this), and lupus for Dom.
I fly back home tomorrow.. so sad man.
Thank you guys, ttys.
Macy GOD IS SMILING ON YOU . I have never shared a personal message from a BHM member . I sent domin a poem a few years back during a difficult time . When you have a moment to catch your breath , I want you to read and think about the silly girls and smile . I am here for you and the family until the day mrs . India meets the lord and Domin in heaven . GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU .
When you take a stand and say what you choose,
Without hesitation, or being confused,
Not holding a fear of what others may say,
But to say what you mean in every way,
It liberates your soul, by setting you free,
No longer a prisoner of insecurity,
But a teacher to others who sometimes hold back,
By seeing in you the strength that they lack,
Releases their fears and doubts that they hold,
And helps them now see its ok to speak bold,
Just do it with dignity, kindness and love,
Give all of your fears to our friends up above,
Don’t compromise yourself to collude with the rest,
Speak truth in your words and remain at your best,
If others don’t like the control that they lack,
Because of your strength to speak truth and talk back,
Let that be their issue, don’t lose who you are,
Keep making that stand and you’re sure to go far.
We all have the right to express our beliefs,
Our ideas, opinions, happiness and grief,
But we must allow others to do just the same,
Respect them and their wishes without drama and pain.
To allow them to shame you or belittle your voice,
Says “its ok I don’t mind” like you don’t have a choice,
And the more you keep quiet, the more they control,
Giving up who YOU are so that THEY can feel whole.
It just doesn’t make sense to allow this to be,
I'm no better then you, but your no better then me.
So keep trying hard to find that strength deep within,
And Let old habits go, so new ones can begin.
