Black like Me

Black like me

There he stands in a room full of clear faces

His skin the color of tar

Dark brown eyes accentuate the skin he’s in

Nostril broad as his shoulder

Different from any other

Concrete in his stance to love and protect his people

Blood lines drawn across his skin

Chained and confined in a corner

His ancestors’ stories etched inside his memory

His history told from different points of view

He stands with the world on his shoulders

Defying the odds

Breaking the chain that once held him back

Giving hope too many

Heavens pearly gates depart

Applause from history graves

Voices of youth broken down and disheveled stand up

The crowd gasps for air making there skin red with envy

He spreads his arms, opens his mouth and speaks

“I will not lose”

He is the black man deprived of his mothers love

Abused by society

He stands on his two feet and defeats the world

The black man, the man I love

He has a face and a name

Barack Obama
