Black To White - Poem by Masharia kanyari

I am death at the delivery room,
I am starvation in a restaurant,
I am poverty at the Vatican
I am always where I am not required,
but they cannot eliminate my kind,
The best they can do is eliminate me,

You are joy at a funeral,
You are guns to ammunition,
You are satisfaction to need,
You always appear where you are required,
You are hope to the hopeless,
You are beauty to beast

We are both not tough but we are strong
We are what black is to white,
We are who we are and that is where we meet,
Our family, Our team,
Together in the dark as in the light,
You and me
