Thinking Aloud: #Lifeless

Right after posting a midday inspiration on my Instagram page (@memkoh), I stumbled on some older ones I’d shared. This “Thinking Aloud: #Lifeless” post got me and I almost screamed my brains off! Nah! More like I snapped my fingers as I got to the end.

#Lifeless

You say you love wearing black,

my black,

the same black as the color of my skin.

But you don’t love me,

why is that?

You say black is opulent,

looks effortless,

looks chic.

So

why don’t you look at me with those same eyes of opulence?

Oh, I see.

You only love Black…

when it hangs on your body, lifeless!

How's your day going, folks?πŸ˜€ I was just thinking and my mind wandered off to Bloglovin' and some posts they'd shared with bloggers in black/minimal looks. Their professed love for black got me thinking, till I drew a parallel line between style and race. I'm not one to pull out the race card except when absolutely necessary. Maybe it's because I was fortunate enough not to be raised in a racially biased society. But as you know, on Memkoh, we delve into issues faced by people other than ourselves, so let's go there. I'm taking a seat beside my black brothers and sisters who are constantly weighed down by issues of race. Join me. #Lifeless You say you love wearing black, my black, the same black as the color of my skin But you don't love me, why is that? You say black is opulent, looks effortless, looks chic. So why don't you look at me with those same eyes of opulence? Oh, I see. You only love Black… when it hangs lifeless on your body. #Carryon… #MiddayMemobyMemkoh

*Compared to the version I shared on Instagram, I edited the last line because I’m avoiding using the adverbial form of this word. Let’s stick with adjectives πŸ˜›
