    they continue
    to gaze at us with eyes
    yet do not see…
    hear us with ears
    yet they do continue not
    hearing…
    can’t hear, see or perceive
    the beauty of we…
    can they understand the
    prolific
    sometimes they complicate
    us so much that they
    miss our inner and outer simplicity…
    there is sophistication
    in simplicity…
    we are untapped…un-raped
    by time and by age.
    we
    are timeless and priceless…
    and we simply are.

    our essence opens over-wide mouths
    to sing in sonku:

    we worship
    the divine
    in HIM we
    exist
    until we are
    entity.


    being black is
    utterly
    beautiful
    being of the lineage
    of Ham is
    …complexly
    beautiful
    we are blessed and beautiful
    and bountiful and blessedly
    beneficent,
    and we
    don’t care
    if they don’t
    understand…they can continue
    to gaze at us with eyes
    yet do not see…
    hear us with ears
    yet there is no
    hearing…
    they can continue
    not hearing, seeing or perceiving
    the beauty of we;
    but
    we hear…
    we see…
    we must both
    see and hear
    the complex simplicity…the
    beauty of
    we.

    You would figure that raw beauty would be easier to see, but that just isn't so...smh. So well posed, keep speaking to what we experience everyday poet.

    Love your style of spilling emotions for a purpose. We are beautiful, we have years of history in which we've overcome, and have more victory in the future if we just allow ourselves to claim it
