What If…Original Poetry _ 1985

What If

 

What if

you looked around and saw nothing but people of color

People who stole nothing but kisses;

raped nothing but that which encompassed education;

killed nothing but your troubles

when the weight was too heavy to bear.

 

Wept for no reason but to rejoice in

the celebration of a new coming;

died only from the hand of God

 

People loving each other regardless of the risk

People deserving of the chance to live

 

People of color

 

Unafraid and

Unified

As One

 

(c) M. Tonita Austin-Hilley 1985
