Still Standing, The Beauty of A Black Man

Still Standing

From the tribulations of Kemet
To the trials and tragedies that took Place
in this United States

You are still standing

Though you beaten and Dragged
For 300+ years of times that were Bad

You are still here

Standing strong and Tall
Why? Cuz you know that there is a special Call

For you Black Man

You are beautiful and Lovely
The thought of you makes me feel Fuzzy

I long to hold and caress your beautiful Black Skin
And when we are intimate
I love it when you are In

But wait!!!
That is another time, a different Place
As long as you understand
That I see the beauty on your Face
Beautiful Black Man

For you are Life
The creator of All
You will never Fall
As long as you realize
That you are Beautiful, Black and a Man

Once I needed no sounds to talk to You
Now everything is complex and what you profess is not true

Yet I want you to understand your Place
in this Space
Where time passes Fast
And memories cannot be Erased

For you are intelligent and Wise
So I pray, "Please do not be Blind"
To this confusion and evil
I do understand that there is a war and People

Against you Black Man

So I will stand by your side
And you in God's everlasting Grace
Still standing strong and Tall
With Beauty within and all over your Face
Proud throughout it All

Beautiful Black Man

Please do not go to waste

And Lose your Place
in my space
Black Man

This was a little somthing I wrote my Ex-Boyfriend many years ago, he "Lost his place in my space" so to speak, I kind a let him back though, He comes to visit me from time to time. I hope you enjoy my prose :->
