Black boy

Poor black boy. They don’t even know who you are.

The color of your skin,

What they see in their eyes.
Judge, persecute, betray- then repeat.

They don’t know you, but they already hate you.
Poor black boy.

I am the mother of one.

I want to love you up,

Forever and more.
I can’t even write this without fear.

Tears, hurt, anger…everything rolled into one.
Poor black boy.

You aren’t the only one.

I teach you everyday,

Instill in you the values that the media takes away.
You are our future, yet endangered.

I wish I could tell each of you how great you are.

Regardless of your “IQ” or “IEP” you are the one with the strength to move nations.
Poor black boy.

I love you, but God loves you more.
