I hate feeling like I have to choose between my country and my race.
I haven't said the pledge since Trump has been in office and my heart hurts.
My heart bleeds.
I love my country.
And I'm mourning for the loss of its
love for me.
My heart bleeds for
seven-year-old girls who die at border patrol.
for the black lives who don't matter
for all the silent voices who say me too
My heart is grieved and heavy
Bloodied and bruised
My heart is gone
Yet, I still love my country
