Hungry, No Money for Food

I don’t have money for groceries. It has been like this for a few weeks now every since my dad made me leave home. I have been paying bills but I have absolutely nothing left for food. I have asked for help before on Tumblr to no avail, but in my last ditch attempt to get by, could you guys spare $5 or $10 to help me buy groceries that will last for a while. I am always hungry and it would mean a lot if you could help me get a meal. My donation button is on the top left side of my blog page.

I know people are on Tumblr all the time asking for money for different things and it is always so easy to over look these people but please take the time to help me. I would be so grateful. I have been through a lot, and nothing seems to be looking up and now all I am trying to do is survive. Please help me do so.


The next time a man tells me “I’m no good for you”, I will:

1. Listen

2. Believe him

3. Pack my heart up and go

4. Never look back.


Happy Birthday Dr. Huey P. Newton (Co-founder of the Black Panther Party); because they don’t want us to know he had a Ph.D in Social Science. They want us to think he was just some ignorant, trouble-making thug.

I know I love you because it’s always there, and I never have to doubt it. 
It comes so naturally, I don’t even have to think about it.
It’s like breathing.

Like, I just blinked four times, 
I just breathed in,
 I love you.

Somebody just shoot me now please. I can’t do this much longer…

Karyn Parsons Seeks To Share Untold Stories of Black History Heroes

Karyn Parsons, who is most known for her portrayal of Hilary Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is seeking your support to help to raise money to create a 20-minute animated documentary about Janet Collins, the first black prima ballerina and soloist to perform at the Met Opera. Collins overcame a great deal of obstacles even declining to join Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo at the age of 15 when she was asked to perform only under the condition that she had to be in whiteface.

This upcoming Chris Rock-narrated short will be another addition to Parson’s organization Sweet Blackberry, whose mission is to educate kids on the achievements of Black Americans with inspiring true stories.

Previous award-winning films by Sweet Blackberry (Parent’s Choice Award, Learning Magazine’s Teacher’s Choice Awards) were narrated by noted actors Alfre Woodard and Queen Latifah and featured on HBO and HBO Family and distributed to libraries and schools all over the world.

"One day, whether you
are 14,
or 65

you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.

However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––

is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives."

I just wish this ever lasting sting of loneliness would subside.
