The Corner Poet: The Black Man

The Black Man

A fortress of strength, resilience and bravery. He has to endure it all. The gravitational pull of the world hovering over his shoulders. With a family he must protect. Scared and unsure, but he must be fearless. Vulnerability is not an option. But, the spirits that loom help guide him. His physical and mental pain is now at ease. He now knows why the caged bird sings. All is forgiven but never forgotten. From the ashes of despair emerges a true hero. An Ode to God’s greatest creation.
