The Cause of Real Tears

They cry out even after death,

For those who walked damned, and were born not a man, pain was their morning breakfast suffering was their evening dinner
They cry out even after death,
For those who’s existence was cut short by misery and strife, and at each turn death desired their life because death was theirs in the form of white that whipped and killed them just for sheer delight,
They cry out even after death,
For those who were seen but not perceived, herd but not listened to because their skin was considered darkness in form, when in turn those who killed them for mere fun and raped their women while telling the negroes to hold their tongues, outside they were white inside they were filled with this darkness they spoke of,
They cry out even after death,
For those that went through night and day with twinge so unbearable that hate became sweet to their tongues, pain to the point of wanting death rather then breath, these were the people that were told that all this hurt they felt is fault that embodies them,
They cry out even after death,
For those who suffered mentally and physically, mentally they were called names that in form were like blades cutting at the heart, physically they were beaten to a single pulse,
They cry out even after death,
For those who were seen in the eyes of the white as three fifth human, who before they were even born were already slaves, unwillingly their life they gave theirs is the anguish that can still be seen when closely looking in these moments frozen in paintings and brought to view in pictures that cry,
They cry out even after death.
