    “Black Tears”

    Pain, anger, and hurt, then black tears
    Rejection, envy, and fear, then black tears
    They just seem to flow
    Until everything is let go
    They’re something similar to the rain
    Type of tears that wash away all pain
    You can’t hide these tears they’re hard to tame
    But they wash away all the shame
    Black tears are the same tears my ancestors cried
    Black tears are the tears I cried when they died
    Black tears streamed down their face
    When they were punished for being a certain race
    Black tears stained their beds
    When they were told their only good enough to live in sheds
    Black tears kept them strong
    When every day society did them wrong
    Even when they came last
    Black tears washed away their past
    I’ll let them flow
    I’ll let them go
    I’ll let them glow
    And I’ll let them show
    I’ll let them stream
    I’ll let them scream
    Because black tears
    Is the color of my tears

    Black tears built this nation through blood and tears
    Black tears changed this nation through fear.

    Black tears flooded rivers
    But built wells to drink
    Black tears cooked dinners
    But still found ways not to sink

    Black tears hung from ropes
    enslaved on boats
    even severed throats
    with it's last shed of hopes

    Black tears made you write this too
    Black tears made me respond 2 you!
