Black Poetry : Ode to Our Progeny: A Bishop and Nia Maishani Collaboration

Walking thru the cemetary
sounds of your voices crying
from beneath the earth
crying out for a savior
to save
the remnant
left behind.

"Don't let this happen to another child".
"Don't let the song die".

Tears in my eyes
viewing the pictures of those missing
stolen
by predators
that has no soul.

As the death angel
looms overhead
to silence another voice
I must
follow
somehow stop him from
taking another one.

A baby crying in the night
as a hulking monster, the father, yells and screams
for the baby to stop
picks up the child
as the death angel greedily
awaits
but I must intercede
pleading with the death angel
take me
spare the child.

Death angel looks and smile
a soul is a soul
and a life is a life.

The father's anger has subsided
puts the child down
as the death angel
proclaims
the deal is done.

Greater love hath no man than this
that a man would lay down his life
for a friend
sacrifice made
in order for the song to continue.

Will others stand up and stop the madness?
Will others stop the genocide
that threatens to silence
the voices of our progeny forever?

Will you stand?

For if the voices are silenced
then we ourselves have died.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
Life is a poem, love is the pen.
