    His skin cold black
    Glistening in the afternoon sun
    Moving with joy
    Having so much fun

    Proudly he walks
    A true Black man
    Walking with his son
    Who is holding his hand

    Not a care in the world
    Cute as he can be
    Walking with his daddy
    This boy of three

    The present and the future
    Together
    How it should be
    Unspoken love and adoration
    Seen in the boy's eyes
    I recieve a nod of "That's my boy"
    I nod back
    I recognize

    Their blackness overpowering
    They are the sons of many sons
    Touched by God centuries ago
    Chosen to be the color of night
    A blackman with his black son
    Yes indeed
    A beautiful sight

    Yes, it is a very beautiful sight. One I am proud to see and I must say that contrary to common belief, this is not a rare sight...it is simply a beautiful sight; one of strength and hope for an even better tomorrow.
