My Ode to the Black Man

You’re more than just another r.i.p. hashtag,

more than pants that sag,

You’re more than the block u grew up on,

More like a king,

Keeping your people under your wing,

Still showing strength,

Riding on your own wavelength,

when you get beat down,

but rarely built up,

Stand-up,

Keep moving forward,

Keep your pride,

Hold your head high,

When push comes to shove,

Always remember…you’re loved.
