Heartbreak is something everyone will experience time and time again. It never gets easier and it never will, but each time you wake up one day and suddenly that ache in your heart is gone. Suddenly everything feels like it’s getting back track. Suddenly you’re free. I was looking through some of my old poems of mine about heartbreak, and one really shook me. I couldn’t remember the pain i was feeling at the time but the words spoke volumes. I thought i’d share with it you as a reminder that heartbreak helps us grow and learn, but things will always get better with time and patience.
But something in her makes me gentle. Makes me shy. Makes me strong. Makes me happy to be alive. And maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s what it really comes down to. She makes me. Makes me whole… She completes me… So here’s the thing, God… I know I complain a lot, and I know that you and me, we’ve got issues, but right now, just for tonight… Thank you for her. Thank you.

When The Flash cast a white actress to play Lisa Snart, I was disappointed because the show could have taken this opportunity to cast a mixed race actress to act alongside Wentworth Miller, who plays Leonard Snart on the show. And before the usual comments arise, it needs to be noted that Wentworth Miller, albeit white passing, is not white.He’s half black, but he’s often coded as white in many of his roles due to white actors being cast as his onscreen relatives, his current role as Leonard Snart being no exception.
The show could have portrayed the Snart siblings as half black, but chose not to and this is me trying to rectify that. I admit that this is racebending revenge and to be frank, there really needs to be more ladies of colour on the show. These are some of the mixed race black actresses who could have played Lisa Snart as suggested by my followers.
