Black is beautiful

The colour of your skin is beautiful

It’s a velvety midnight black

 

The colour of your skin is beautiful

It shines like the ebony keys on the piano

 

The colour of your skin is beautiful

It’s the colour of the pupil of the eye

 

The colour of your skin is beautiful

Sometimes it’s a lovely chocolaty brown

 

The colour of your skin is beautiful

But real beauty is in your eyes and in your heart

Injustice

What is the color of injustice?

It’s midnight black

And like the darkness of the moon less night

It wraps itself around you and starts squeezing

Injustice like a black cloth blindfolds you 

And wrapped around your mouth, silences you

Injustice like a rope

Ties your hands behind your back and restricts you

Injustice is the thief that steals the light 

Temporarily 

But the darkness of injustice 

Will give way to dawn

That day will come
