Who Am I?


I am a parent, a teacher

A sister, a brother

A preacher, a stylist

An artist, a lover

I am an all time friend

I am a beaken of light

But you'll never know that because I am covered by white


I am covered by white lies and scandals

Covered by white hands of anger

I am covered by white envy and fear

I am covered by fake white bitter tears

I am covered by green grass and dirt

I have now become part of the earth

I am covered because my skin is not pure white

So I'm ignored like the shadows in the night


Who am I?


I am only the most hated race

I am the race that's the hardest to face

I am the race that makes the world go 'round

But I am also the race they dont want to make a sound


I am a woman pulling over for a traffic stop

I am a young boy playing maybe wanting to be a cop

I am a man that abides by the law

I am a man that wanted to go out for a jog


WHO AM I?

I am a BLACK man

I am a BLACK woman

I am a BLACK child

I AM BLACK…and I'm dying for it
