Crying Black Man

My sadness beats steadily against the noise of silent eyes who look through my heart.   I stand still in the middle of a circle of invisibility staring at empty walls full of shadows;     shadows hidden behind a perspiration of smiles pretending to be my friends but all the while they laugh at […]

“If you can make it through the night, there’s a brighter day.” – Tupac Shakur I see your tears crawling silently on the stairs of fear, alone no one is near but your cries are heard young child.

There we played, on the streets of youth where we were free of fear, free of tears and during times when life taught us the freedom to care.   We were the innocent — children filled with dreams learning the art of growth while realizing that everything around us wasn’t what it seemed but still […]
