Why this? (Elizabeth Jenkins-New Orleans-LA)

It seems to me so strange this day
To sit right here and think this woe
My love she packs her bags to leave
Coming soon she'll be with me
Yet she sobs and feels such wretched pain
I see her cry from so far away
Yet nothing do I have nor do but wait
Come to me my precious love
Our pain is not for joyous reunion near
But for time astill must be lost
Preparing for the final trek
Before I hold her near to me
I'll hold her close and hold her hard
At last together so we'll be
Ne'er to render apart our hearts
Forever be united one - forever be united one
So that is why I cry this day
Though sweet reunion anears we two
I think upon that joyous time
When we - 
this time forever - 
join again!

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
