    Black people, why can't I date the boy next door?

    Is it because my people say he is the enemy.

    And if I date him I am their sistah no more.

    And why was my brother mad at me when we were eating supper?

    Is it because I told him I'm down for my friend like he is a "brotha".

    Don't my people know that he has eyes and hands and feet.

    He even likes the same type of soul food that I eat.

    He can laugh, he can cry and when we talk he doesn't lie.

    But my people won't accept him.. why, tell me why?

    My people say it's because he's different from us.

    Well, I guess I'm different too...

    Because that boy next store loves all of the same things I do!

    Interracial
    Together forming to make a Bi
    We have This soul connection
    We formulate, we intertwine
    You and me Best Buds for life
    But for some reason
    Everyone says
    You are dirty and white
    Everyone says You come from hate
    But everyone has not seen your face
    Looked in your eyes
    and seen the life
    Seen your Beauty
    And how you Fight
    Racism is your enemy
    Just as mine
    So how could any one detest
    Us being Inter-racial

    Mom,

    Did you see grandma today?
    So, how's she doing anyway?

    Did you tell her that I'm doing fine?
    Oh, I understand.. you didn't have time.

    Well, then maybe next time you 2 have tea:
    You might get a chance to talk about me.

    You can tell her that I got straight A's.
    Maybe that will change her ways.

    You can tell her I play ball, and hell I'm the MVP.
    Maybe that will make her like me.

    You can tell her that I work really hard.
    Maybe she'll be interested in my job.

    Mom,

    Do you think if you told her all that, she would see me as more then just being black?

    I am with you miss lady

    Why must I and People Be treated
    How they are?


    She says Sweetiy Pie
    You know how things are


    Am I a Bad person?
    Will only White People Listen?


    Fattycakes
    You know the Conditions
    We wouldnt want to make Mistakes


    I am so confused
    I do not Know what going on with me
    or any thing for that matter?
    Will anyone Help me?


    Sugar Lips
    We are in war
    You just don't have enough Hips


    Why should I be ashamed
    I am Inadequate?
    Oh God Why are things this way?

    Dumply Face
    Who showed you How to say grace?


    I need to learn the life
    I will do it All on my own?


    Listen!!!!
    YOU are Just a Figment
    If I were a White man
    I'd slap you In the Face


    All of these words.....
    And she Could never even say my name.....

    Hey Miss Lady
    You poem brings up a good question
    It should never matter to others where
    Our heart leads US, As long as that person makes US
    happy, we all just want to be happy
    Nice flow

    Peace~N~Love

    I think I love him even though daddy told me not to.
    He said never go outside this place and love a blue eyed face.

    But daddy loved the devil and he kept em close to home.
    Every night up in smoke.. I'm locked in my room and feel so all alone.

    I watched my sister sleep so peacfully in bed.
    Sit on the side with one cocked back - distrub her peace your dead.

    And from the distance of my room, my mothers' cries would taunt.
    Then God would say, "this is not my will.. this is not what I want"...

    Look'd the devil in the face, gave me the world without a map.
    Took my innocence away.. **** right I want it back.

    Da unknown world was less confusing then what was established in the home.
    And all the faces like yours dad have left me all alone.

    And ironically enough you tried to teach me to hate what you seem to love.
    All and all in the end it's only you you were thinking of.

    You said that he would hurt me, but your the one that gave me pain.
    Your pressence in itself was equivelent to endless rain.

    Brought me in the world and I always felt displaced.
    And each day as I learn to love him .. more and more pain gets erased.

    He and I... although worlds apart.. both fighting for different things..
    I think I love him anyway......... "I know why the caged bird sings"
