Darkness in the light

My light is all shades of black that runs from the top of the spectrum to the bottom,

To the deepest depths the sea is yet to reveal

Dark warm places where man is praying to discover.

My light is a shade of slavery that white people forget to document, the area of survival

Where the negroes were not at the apex of the hierarchy,

We weren’t on a spectrum that ignored our existence

My light is a shade of tears shed by every family, every mother, brother, father, daughter that’s lost their soul

How they had to watch a part of them wither and sink to pits of hell

A hell that’s only shades of white.
