“I believe in living. I believe in the spectrum of Beta days and Gamma people. I believe in sunshine. In windmills and waterfalls, tricycles and rocking chairs,” the poem titled “Affirmation” reads.

“I have been locked by the lawless. Handcuffed by the haters. Gagged by the greedy. And if i know any thing at all, it’s that a wall is just a wall and nothing more at all. It can be broken down.”

And in the caption, Drake simply wrote : “Rest in heaven George Floyd 🌹” Peep the tribute post below :
