    YOU ARE



    You are a midnight summer rain, rinsing
    my body from the dense humid heat.
    Your are a breath of fresh air, drying the moist stinging
    tears from my sadden swollen eyes.
    Your are a beautiful purple flower, standing strong
    and tall with the leaves fully expanded to greet
    me with a morning hello.
    Your are a conquering lion, stretched out
    under a large Sycamore fig tree, teaching and protecting
    our young from the predator's lurking within your realm.
    You are a skillful warrior king, bending and weaving
    the malicious attacks on your true identity.
    Your are a creature of God, one who's
    magnificents is written in the stars.
    You are a gentle storm of passion, molding and
    creating patterns on the earth surface.
    Your are a raging fire, full of brilliant colors
    with the intensity to scorch my battered
    and bruised heart with your love.
    You are a mangerine orange, bursting with
    a seductive sweet nectar that rejuvenates my soul.
    You are two very strong arms that lifts me up, when
    I'm to weak to move onward.
    You are a thick heavy cotton blanket,
    hovering over me, withstanding the turbelent blows
    of large rocks and debris.
    You are a compassionate nurturing mother,
    cradling me in your humble heart.
    You are the life source that keeps me
    striving, fighting, and deterimined to
    rise up above the icey cold waters.
    You are everything I need to survive!!!!!!
    You will forever be my definition of a invincible Black man,

    BECAUSE YOU ARE!!!!!!!
