Mental Breakdown…

Black is not a color –

Black is a mentality.

Sadly it has dominated the news of late –

It seems ‘black’ is the new fatality.

 

Black is not a color –

Black is a mentality.

With mothers spoiling their young

And fathers serving up a legacy of brutality.

 

Black is not a color –

Black is a mentality.

It’s synonymous with force, aggression, a lot of noise

Passion, power, sexiness – oh yes… ‘black’ has such duality!

 

Black is not a color –

Black is a mentality.

Feared by so many, threatening in its way

Something to be broken; simply because of its seeming un-malleability.

 

Black is not a color –

Black is a mentality.

Walking with bravado, arrogance and swag

But it’s all in an attempt to mask ‘black’s’ true vulnerability.

 

Black is not a color –

Black is a mentality.

Often disregarded, ignored until it fights back –

By matching blow to blow and injustice with cruelty.

 

Black is not a color –

Black is a mentality.

We’ve occupied this world since the beginning of time –

And nothing you do will eradicate this history!

 

See, but black IS a color –

And only the ignorant will view it simply a mentality.

So the sooner we all realize and accept this

Is the quicker we begin to positively affect our current reality.
