Chapter 6: No I am not black

No I am not black so I cannot

ever know how you may
feel, because God
just happened to make my
skin color white but does it
make a big deal? We both
have struggled in a lot of the
same ways for I fight every day
to find good paying jobs so I
can put food on my children’s
plate. Just because I was born
white to parents that are too,
does not mean that I came with
a big silver spoon. Just because
you black does not mean you
were born poor you have more
millionaires now than at any time
before. You were never a slave
picking cotton in the fields and
I never owned any and I never
will, that mistake was resolved
back over one hundred years
through many different color of
people who have cried the same
color of tears. When you sit down
and listen to my words which
ebb and now flow, I am a Poet
like you that bleeds the same ink
that you do I fight for the freedom
of every race of man and I battle
against hate where we all must
make stand. So please when
you see me walking down your
street there is no need to call
me your enemy you see for I
am just soldier on a mission
trying to make ends meet.
Divided we will be defeated by
the evils if hate taken down
one by one until it is to late
separated by memories of all
Our past mistakes doomed to
repeat them as we fall to the hate.
So I say my brothers and sisters
as I reach out my heart to you
in peace let’s let go of the pain
and anger and put laughter and
good times in its place.

Sometimes when it is late at night but only when it rains, her heart begins to ache as her soul weeps silently while it begins to starts remembering dancing with him on those wet and wild nights watching the lighting flash in each other’s eyes and feeling the thunder roll while in each other arms.
