Written 11/07/17 Prompt: Dear Black People

Focused on the white mans pride, 

Did you forget your own? 

We never needed their approval

Nor their scraps of progress 

That they toss at the hint of a fight.

We are enriched in our melanin, but we are not just beautiful skin. 

We are a people, a heritage that strikes back against hate, and overcomes. 

We are more than a token, more than festishized flesh, we are everything this universe has to offer in one glorious body. 

We are the songs of the cosmos, find pride in your melanin, find peace in your black soul, find the fight to keep us as a people whole.

If I could live like a dream catcher, filtering out the bad of the world I would. 

I would leave with pretty memories, and a beautiful story. 

My words would wrap around like hug, in times where a loving soul was needed. 

My voice could be a balm, a soothing presence in your dark hours. 

If my heart would be your cure, I would gladly give it. 

If my hands could protect you, I would gladly do it. 

In a place so bad, I wish I was a dream catcher. I wish I was the stars, and I wish I was a beautiful gem. Anything at all to be a joyous voice, in a bleak moment. To remind you at all times, why you mattered so much. Why you are appreciated, why you are worthy of love, why your dreams can be a reality. You inspire many, you make a difference, you are a spark in winter. 

You are not to blame, never at all. Let me remind you to stand tall. Your soul, is something to behold and admire. No matter how dark and dire, know that you are loved. Know that this voice you hear loves, and would be your dream catcher.
