Comments about Leonard Dabydeen
They Call Me Illegal
They call me illegal
unwanted in the eye
blue as the sky
but only seeing my colour
my dark skin and I
they crimp minds with hate
their souls to flaming rage
and yet on impulse
I smile mischievously
‘cause I am hopeful
I am like falling rain
I run in gutters
I run in trenches
I put a smile on earth
trees and plants
they welcome me.
