#28DaysOfPoetry: The Black History Month Chronicles: America, The Beautiful

america, the beautiful – 2/2/15

America

The Beautiful

Black Is

Beautiful

We know this

Yet, how is it that

darkness

seems to bring about

fear

and we trust

people

in the light

 

Word to the wise

just because one’s

skin is light

does not mean

they have

your best interest

at heart

 

Be careful when you walk

into the light

when we sleep in the dark

our instincts become

more aware

of our surroundings

and we might find

that what we do in the dark

will inevitably

come to light
