a poem by Whitney Sparks

Black lives matter to the wildflowers

Black lives matter to the trees

Black lives matter to the Oceans

Black life matters in the Sea

Black life matters to the Hummingbirds

Black lives matter to the Hawks

Black Lives Matter to the raindrops

Black lives matter to the rocks

Black lives matter to the deer

Black lives matter to the fox

Black lives matter to the panther

Black life matters to the ox

Black lives matter to the fish

Black lives matter to the fowl

Black lives matter to the horses

Black lives matter to the owl

Black lives matter to the buffalo

Black lives matter to great apes

Black lives matter to the mountains

Black lives matter to the lakes

Black lives matter to the soil

Black lives matter to the skies

Black lives matter to the lions

Black life matters to Butterflies

Black lives matter very much to air

Black lives matter to the stars

Say “Black Lives Matter” when you care

Black Lives Matter near and far

Black lives matter everywhere!

Black lives matter here, in our hearts.

Black lives matter forever

Black lives matter in the past

Black lives matter in the afrofuture

When we will be free at last

Black lives matter to the meadows

Black lives matter in the present

Black lives matter to the rivers

Black lives matter up in heaven

Black lives matter through all time

Black lives matter in all spaces

Black lives matter to the land

Black lives matter — in yo faces!

Black lives matter: we are sacred

Black lives matter and always survive

Black feels matter: we are human

Black lives matter and deserve to thrive.

Black lives matter for protection

Black lives matter, medicine

Black lives matter gives direction

Protect, liberate, nurture, and cherish ALL Black lives — period!

— amen, axe, the end.
