Million Man March Poem

Rating: 3.9
The night has been long,
The wound has been deep,
The pit has been dark,
And the walls have been steep.

Under a dead blue sky on a distant beach,

Loved these lines: 'The hells we have lived through and live through still, Have sharpened our senses and toughened our will.' Maya is the name of an inspiration. Congratulations!

This poem is a history; History of deep wounds; Where humanity repeatedly embraces the death Described here are about the oppressed people who were human beings but were not considered as human beings They have not been able to become independent under the rule of racists even though they have spent billions of moments to assert their rights

What can i say. Thats my mother who crossed the Atlantic and left me in a beautiful dark continent full of foreign induced calamity. It doesnt matter what people say we continue to rise and write poems righting the wrongs of the past. Beautiful poem/song from a beautiful woman. I clap my hands for her.
