An original poem to honor Black History Month

Good morning.
In honor of Black History Month I would like to share an original poem…

Take my hand and wipe my tears.
Be my friend and hold my fears.
Sometimes weak and so ran over.
But smiling proud… a strong black soldier.
But what’s a soldier to an army?
An army equipped with more than just “sorry”
An army full of white, brown, and black
A united front ready to attack
What are we without each other?
We’re internal friends, no different from one another.
We bleed the same red. We cry the same blue.
And we scream to create justice.
But it takes an “I” and it takes a “U”

Dear God,
Let us stand up for those we know, those we love, and those we have yet to meet. Allow us to share the love to all on this Valentine’s Day. Let us all come together and believe. Believe that Black Lives Matter. That women’s rights are human rights. That animal rights are human rights. That no human is illegal. That love is love. And that kindness… is everything.

The following is a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.”
