White man’s guilt
Black man’s burden
embodied together and
connected by  spilled
blood
buried with our ancestors
Now rising up thru the
concrete to our
youth,
Remembering
Torn from the pages
of old history books
stacked on shelves
behind hidden doors
where men gathered
to agree on what lies
to tell, so as to re-write
histories future with
a slant in their favor
leaving behind
monuments carved
in stone, echoing
thru vaulted ceilings
and domed arches
cemented bricks
of duplicity that
tell no tales
when darkness
falls, and the
lights
go
out.
P.R. 6/9/24

Great write, Breadcrumbs2021. Another awareness of why we need to be about the writing of Ourstory, ourselves. ONE. PEACE AND LOVE.
