#28DaysOfPoetry – The Black History Chronicles: black history month

black history month – 2/1/15

America’s

distorted history

often exudes

an amnesia

of sorts

that conveniently

ignores

the

trueness

of Black Life

in America

that

for 28 days

while short lived

allows for

the correction

of wrongs

the chance

to

tell truths

and

gives us a reason

to write,

read, dance

sing and

reminisce

about

how life

could, should

be

for those of us

who

involuntarily

made peace

in a place

where

we were

not welcome
