Strength from a Friend (Jason M Smith-Lafayette, LA)

We look for love in the wrong place
Why do we turn to some strangers face?
It could be there right in front of you
Are we just scared of what we might do?
Passing by without seeing the compassion
Is that’s what is today’s fashion?
I don’t understand why we fear so much
Are we afraid of another humans touch?
I know how you feel with life’s little plan
That’s why I am here to lend you my hand.
Don’t be afraid of where our friendship will lead
That’s why I wish you were closer to me.
I understand that we are friends till the end
So don’t blow me away just like the wind.
I am here with you to just have fun
Just like the moon needs the sun.
Please don’t think this is presumptuous of me
I know you are a kindred spirit that has to be free.
Whenever you feel lonely and depressed
I will always be there to help you rest.

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
