About Black


Black . . .

My dad’s skin color
And he almost got killed by an unknown sect
Because of his skin.

Black . . .
My mom’s skin color
And she got fired
Because of her skin.

Black . . .
My kid brother’s skin color
And nobody wants to be his friend
Because of his skin.

Black . . .
My skin color
And what is so wrong about it?
Surely, God loves us regardless of our skin.
