I’ve cried tears for a man that I never knew,
For people who are enraged by what they do.
For the humanity that seems to have left some of humankind.
For those that claim to protect our times.
I’ve cried tears that so many have been fooled.
For they truly do not know what they do.
Following a president and governors that’ll leave democracy in tatters.
The men and women that don’t believe that black life matters.
I’ll cry tears until one day justice is truly done.
Until freedom of opportunity is there for all bar none.
Until racists have had their power removed.
Until the freedoms in constitution are not cynically abused.
I’ll cry tears for a man that I never met.
For his unrealised right to get all that I can get.
For the failed justice that he didn’t have to find.
I’ll cry until all acknowledge, we are one race, one world, one humankind.
I want to disappear into a world all of my own.
A place that I can become that, into which I’ve grown.
Time has transformed me, like a hermit, I need a new shell.
But I’m trapped in the one on my back, I live for those beside me in my living hell.
I want to reappear into a world that I’ve created, grown.
Where my life is mine, all I do and create, I own.
That I transformed over time, my utopia, my heaven upon this earth.
I just hope it doesn’t take death for my long wished rebirth.
There’s courage in valour,
Courage in heart.
Having the courage to break out,
To make a new start.
The courage to do,
The courageous in life,
Whatever it is?
It’s courageous, alright!
So don’t hide from the hard,
Have the courage to move.
Be courageous above all,
Be brave as you choose.

A delta in my world
Is the difference between
What came before
And what I now see
The delta before me
I could never compare
For you my beauty
Are unique, to say I dare
The delta from past
Is our devotion to each
And please no more deltas
Never changes I beseech
