Ill & Exhausted

We all know that racism exists
but its too difficult to address,
we don’t want to talk about it.
The implications affecting black families, difficult to maintain love.
Hard for some of us to see the beauty of ourselves,
mixed up in the media’s definitions of what beautiful is,
struggling to achieve dreams not made for cocoa & chocolate realities.
But we don’t have to talk about it.
Just take a look around.
Our lives, statuses & thoughts speak to it…-DD WrightPoetry by D.D. Wright
