To the Man of My Dreams and…My Future Reality (Louis Toliver Jr)


I imagine you holding the door open to our new home
Newly married, you come in behind me smiling
You wrap your arms tightly around me, our heads touching
You say “We’re Home” and I turn and kiss you

I imagine the birth of our first child, adoption, of course
The fact that we can love a child is all we want, we win
We have many more children, we love them all, of course
Their ambitions high like their parents, all we want, we win

I imagine a marriage and life filled with best memories
All of our traveling adventures, experiencing the world
Coaching our children to make the best decisions in life
Growing old together and having the most youthful love

And, though it’s bittersweet, I imagine the day I lose you
Not that anything went wrong, it’s just that we are strong
It is an exciting thought, our love makes death seem easy
Because one earthly death will never break our energy apart

Whatever form YOU, man of my dreams, come in
YOU, my future reality man, will constantly evolve with me
It is YOU I see in this life and also in the next
I shall never settle for anything less than YOU

I’m Not a Nigger (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

You called me a “nigger” One word to rule me  Your word bullet of hate 
You’re life is a such hell  You think 6 letters  Justify your fake inferiority 
Just 6 letters  I got those and 20 more  Together
My mind is bulletproof I’m so far above you  I can call you scum in 6 different languages 
You can’t hide in white pride You are hate  You’re the nigger
