Black and White

Frank Goodman

Black child,
With colored eyes,
See the world,
Black and White.

Holding hands,
"I Have A Dream!"
Separate ways,
Black and White.

Your speech,
My speech,
Communication breached,
Black and White.

Look at the news,
Media blues,
Society fights,
Black and White.

Railroad track,
Piggy back,
Splits my world,
Black and White.

Dr. King,
Malcolm X,
John Kennedy,
Civil Rights,
Black and White.

Four steps forward,
Ten steps back,
In my place,
Black and White.

Sexual harassment,
Emmet Till,
Boy killed,
Black and White.

Kind of sad,
In a world that's mad,
Can't fight,
Black and White.

Black child,
With colored eyes,
See the world,
Black and White.
