I Am Black And Tall

I Am Black And Tall

I am black and Tall

I wonder why the color of my skin is an issue to so many.

I hear hope and peace and songs of gladness.

I see love and forgiveness.

I want inclusion and acceptance.


I am Black and Tall.

I pretend I’m short.

I feel appreciated by some.

I touch the sky.

I worry about those who hate people of color.

I cry at the shooting or death of another person of color.

I am Black and Tall.

I understand change is not done overnight, but 100 years is long enough.

I beg for human compassion for all.


I dream of a world of peace and love.

I try to be kind to all.


I hope for racial equality for all.

I am Black and Tall.
