    Colored little boys
    … Sometimes cry
    For daddy
    To teach that which fathers know
    Life's perilous, impatient, so take it slow

    Colored little boys
    … Sometimes cry
    For mommy
    To teach that which only mothers can
    Learn the compassion of man
    Grow and teach it over again

    Colored little boys
    … Sometimes cry
    For God
    To rid the world of terroristic hatred
    Placing kin against their unknown kindred
    Crying out for peace instead

    Colored little boys
    … Sometimes cry
    For all the world
    Life is more than diamonds, gold & pearls
    Greed-mongers allow starvation to little boys and girls
    In their hands world dies, we in fetal positional curl

    Colored little boys
    … Sometimes cry
    For love
    To shower out earth daily pangs
    Rejoice for life is the good song we sang
    Evil and the vile in noose will hang

    Colored little boys
    … Sometimes cry
    And colored little boys
    … Sometimes cry

    i would venture to say that you are too young to remember a time when we were actually called "colored little boys." colored little boys do sometimes cry for the things little boys need...as they feed upon the nurishment of knowledge...in becoming a man.

    keep teaching the needs of our young ones.

    the river floweth.
