BLACK LOVE

I CHOSE LOVE BUT

LOVE DOES NOT CHOOSE ME

FOREVER CHASING BUT NEVER CAPTURED

LOST FOREVER FOR I AM ONLY FOUND IN MINDS

FLOATING WITH THE BUTTERFLIES WAITING TO BE CARESSED

MOMENTS IN THE STARS

YET YEARS IN THE DARKNESS

SINKING DEEPLY INTO THE EARTH

BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN

CALLING FOR PASSING SHIPS

DROWNING IN HATE

SURFACING ONLY TO BREATHE

I HEAR BIRDS CHIRPING OF FREEDOM

DEAF TO THE SOUND

I AM BUT A TREE FOREVER REACHING FOR THE SUN

NEVER TO TOUCH IT

MY OWN HEART WARMS ME

LIGHTING A FIRE WITHIN

WAITING TO EXPLODE

MY BRANCHES TOUCH BRANCHES

BUT NEVER FEELS

NUMB TO LOVE

LOVE NUMB TO ME

FEELINGS NEVER FELT

I REACH OUT

MY ARMS STRETCHING FOR MILES

OH BLACK MAN

OH BLACK WOMEN

CHOOSE LOVE
