You will never know the pain you birthed, because I must keep it safe from you, hidden inside of me. 🥀

  • Canvas of Lineage 
I am a canvas of lineage
Textured with African tones 
Strokes of white from the hills of Germany 
I’m am both whole and separate
Privileged yet restricted
I smile through the comments 
You don’t look black they say
Because all those beautiful people of colour
Are of course Ebony not Ivory
The woman are loud
And the men are thugs right?
So who am I to say I’m black?
The privilege I get is having to grind my teeth
When you voice your actual opinion on my people and if I’m offended, of course I can’t be. I’m white definitely not black.
My identity hides within my veins 
Which run the colour red through my bloodlines
Hidden beneath my pale skin is pride
Pride in Rosa for sitting down on a bus
Honour for Martin who had a dream today
And sad for his people who die everyday
They can’t hide their heritage or grind their teeth
It’s painted on their faces and etched in their tears
Nothing changes in this climate except skin tones
Obama’s whiteness shines through his skin of darker hues, laughable is our allocated black man for the decade. That should keep the minority quiet whilst Trump builds a wall to keep out the melanin, Well Guten Tag Mr President we don’t need Ancestry dot com to know where your heritage lies. My canvas of lineage is a map of colour in a world where leaders long for it to be lacking the colours of my forefathers, the worlds richness is embedded in the soil and the agency of the people. The motherland is looked at as third world but that’s a first world problem when it was the motherland that taught you how to bathe and it was the third world who showed you how to count the money you so desperately crave. And now because of your own colonialist ways we are hear in broad daylight and your privilege is colourblind. “I don’t see colour” you say? well I do and there isn’t enough✊🏻 ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #lineage #poetry #spokenword #racism #whiteprivilege #melanin #writerscommunity #blackness #blackpoetry #writers #writingcommunity #artist #photooftheday #poetsofig #poets #success #lifestyle #instapoetry #poetsofinstagram #blackpower #blackexcellence #blackhistory #black #blacklove #blacklivesmatter #blackisbeautiful #melaninpoppin

  • //...
Remember those who left us 
Honor them, carry their legacy 
They may not be physically here
But we cling on to their memories
We cherish what they taught us 
And we live boldly and confidently 
Keeping them in mind //... 🙏🏼
