The Blackest Black

Flow with me
along the rivers of common sense,
Eroding the riverbeds of tribalism and racism
Revitalising the very essence of man's existence,
flowwith me you will get the sense.

Dine with me on the table of realism
and enjoy the fruits of collectivism.
Because you do not see beyond tribes and races,
you will call me Negro.
Because you think with limitations,
you will see me Inferior.
You will diffuse your ego
in your own biased prejudices,
because you do not see beyond the physical.

Because you are not like me,
I am black proud and honoured.
I humble my blackself
before your racial utterances
because i know i am reason for envy.
I am the blackest black
the one racist choose to hate
because i am a living testimony to their fallacy.

You will call a brother Negro
because you think with limits,
you will see another inferior
because you do not see beyond the physical.
I am the blackest black,
flow with me,
dine with me
you will see i nothing lack.
