    Hello and thank you. Unfortunately, if the poem is entitled The Black Prayer (that is the title the picture of the little girl is attached to) it is a pirated copy of mine. The one I wrote entitled Lord, Why Did You Make Me Black is posted on my Poet-ify page on facebook in case anyone is interested. Thank you for the kind words. The coloring book is coming soon this year.

    I love your poem and I love the painting that was posted with it. I’d love to credit the artist. Can you send a link?

    Your poem Lord Why Did You Make Me Black? Is a cultural classic of black literature. Thank you for writing it and sharing it with the world. I believe that all black people need to read this poem, especially our children and those of us who hate being black. Whenever I see black people, I always see beauty. I'm posting your poem on my facebook page with your name. Peace and blessings, Valerie Orr

Best Poem of RuNett Nia Ebo

Dear Mr. Crack (A Plea From A Young Child)

Dear Mr. Crack,
Please give my Mommy and Daddy back.
I'm not supposed to talk to strangers
but when they're with you, I know they're in danger.
Since you've come around, they're never home
and I really don't like when I'm home alone.

We don't live in our nice, big house anymore and
this place is so cold. There's no rug on the floor.
Sometimes, I don't get enough to eat.
Daddy's eyes look funny and Mommy doesn't sleep.

I want my Mommy and Daddy back.
I miss all the hugs and kisses.
Teacher told us all about you;
how you cause pain and you don't...
