    Like salt to an ocean,
    sulfur to a match,
    Black people to Africa,
    I am a part of you.

    Like suntans on caucasians,
    chinky eyes on asians,
    Excess hair of Italian men,
    I am a part of you.

    Like Walter Cromwell,
    Judge Joe Brown,
    Thurgood Marshall
    I represent the truth.


    Like the Phalanx,
    The liberty Bell,
    I may be cracked,
    but never seperated from you.

    Like I yin and yang,
    Rainbows in waterfalls,
    I am the mirior image of you.

    Like Harriett Tumban,
    on the underground r.r,
    I shall carry your
    love to freedom.

    Like you,
    I too,
    Am In love!
    :heart:

    wow i'm really feeling this poem you expressed yourself in a way that only someone in love can. i think thats what makes this poem good is that your heart is in it and you can tell just by reading those words. keep doing your thing can't wait to read more.

    Black people to Africa,
    I am a part of you.

    my sistah you just came out with it
    who you are
    and what you are about

    chinky eyes on asians,
    Excess hair of Italian men,
    I am a part of you.

    I really enjoy reading your
    drop, from the top
    to the bottom
    I'm just loving how
    you shine in each
    and every lines
    wonderful drop
    poet
    Like Harriett Tumban,
    on the underground r.r,
    I shall carry your
    love to freedom.


    Like you,

    Keep dropping we are all reading
    Peace
