This un-blue blood in darker skin
This youth & manhood trapped within
This un-grown seed beset with doom
This unknown soul locked up, entombed
This brown face, this topless bottom
This man-child approaching Sodom
This buried chest of un-cried tears
This proverb unspoken through the years
This dissonant experience
This scent of crime for innocence
This shoot-to-kill with both hands up
This birthright linking chains & cuffs
This country’s witness to its hate
This issue framed without debate
This urban trend & country woe
This poison root we plant & grow
This history we cannot bear
This melting pot we cannot share
This nightmare that we know is real
This voiceless blackness slaughtered still
This was a necessity Latorial…let the truth be told, no one could have done it better. Thank you Much!!!!
Beautiful and powerful.
Yes you did! Thanks, sis.
