Never Meant to Hurt You (Louis Toliver Jr-Austin, TX)

If I put pain in your heart
Tore us apart
Rubbed you 
I mean no harm 
Don't ring the alarm
Please forgive me 
I couldn't see 
Blinded by my own pain
I blamed the rain
Everyone I distrusted
My soul felt busted 
It wasn't you
I was blue
My reaction 
Was defensive action 
Of what was near
Please forgive me
I couldn't see
If I spoke 
Words that made you choke 
If I wasn't there 
No time to spare 
Didn't give you a hug
When you put down a rug
Made room
Gave me a broom
To share the life wealth
Be good to myself
Please forgive me
I couldn't see
I thank you
Love you too

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
