Black, White and Yellow

When you cry for help, torn

Through your actions

And the aggressiveness of your tone

We see you, we hear you

 

Underneath your chaotic feelings

Your image insecurities

And the darkness of thoughts that invades

The pureness of your soul

We see you, we hear you

 

Among the river of your tears

When it flows

Over the riverbed of your wrecked home

We see you, we hear you

 

Beneath your skin color

Physical disability

Notorious ancestors

We see you, we hear you

 

Even after you explode of tears

That carry crimes of your dark past

We see you, we see hear you

 

We choose to see the light

That hides behind your cloudy vision

Conceals your inner child’s fear

And waits to burst out

To blind you, with beauty

 

To see you, to hear you
