    between
    shadows i watch
    the ancestors kneeling
    beside the graves of our children
    hands reaching through the soil
    eyes staring straight
    at us

    they wail
    watching their blood
    seep into the gutter
    with the sewer water, staring
    at us, knowing children
    are our only
    treasure

    Thank you, precious black man for stopping by and leaving words, I appreciate them and you.

    today
    my female hands
    inside your strong male hands
    let us try to save our children
    change the look of grief on
    our ancestors
    faces

    Thank you, precious black man for stopping by and leaving words. I appreciate them and you.
