B.L.A.C.K - Poem by Anika Simon

What does that word mean
Check it up in the dictionary
Black is Dark
Darkness is to be afraid
Black is Dirt
Dirt is to be dirty
So what is a presious word to describe black
There is none?
To be black is like to be a crime
To shame
to hide
Black is hidden wonder
Searching to be free
Pondering a dark room fighting to escape
Black scares us
For some reason i have no reason to know why
WHen it is then a white light that conferts us
Is that the reason white is so bright
It heals all and makes all feel right
Black is the ending of all
Black ends life
I feel so confused
Does black hurt?
Is that why black is caged?
Is that why black is slaved?
Is that why black is punished?
put in a barrend feild and sent to work
Does black hurt?
I ask again
Why is black undermined
No reason to become something
To set skies a flamed
To make rain pour down to me
Black over rules all
Making all feel small
Black keeps life in pace
Try to keep up with my black race.
