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

america, the beautiful – 2/2/15


The Beautiful

Black Is


We know this

Yet, how is it that


seems to bring about


and we trust


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
