Boulders (by James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette,LA)

we are all like boulders
clinging to side of a mountain

exposed to the elements
hoping to not be rolled down
out of control
into a resting place below
praying that the ground
doesn't give way beneath us
sending us tumbling
we are all part of the mountain
little pieces of its evolution
proof that it had a past life
mineral makeup
time has formed each of us
there is a peace in knowing
that even if we slide off the mountain
and come to rest in the valley
that we are still connected to it
that we can stand on our own
if there is God in these mountains
then we are all part of Him
the sum of us making the whole
awe inspiring mountain
peaks up high
valleys below
tremendous glory

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
