BLACK ON MY SKIN DREAM (A VISUAL POEM)



Grandma says the next morning, kissing my forehead,
 handing me pancakes You are beautiful in the moments 
nobody notices like a butterfly laughing with the crickets 
on a drop of salt water straight from god’s tears. I heard 
the snores turn to yelling, screaming, crying the apes 
are judging me and I don’t feel woman. 

Give anything for my hair to grow and flow straight.
Sick of being called Medusa with the snakes and stone stare. 
My grand baby, howling all night, get off me snakes I am no ape. 
Get those eyes off of me. I am no stone cold killer. 
Can’t you see I’d give anything to be different, to be a rainbow, 
to be that white woman who flips her hair in the sun to get a key to her freedom.

Lyon Brave I strongly encourage that you focus more on your poetry "Brave Lyon" .. this one is profound & beautiful .. and painful "What paint brush for pain?" I shared your "visual poem" on beBee & LI https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6742864593187667969/ my favorite lines: "You are beautiful in the moments nobody notices like a butterfly laughing with the crickets on a drop of salt water straight from God’s tears" We are different in many ways .. yet the same in many ways "Brave Lyon" No matter the color of ones skin ... PAIN of the heart & spirit is felt within By everyone For we are all are "broken" beings As a white woman .. I may "flip my hair in the sun" but I assure this is NOT the "key to freedom" Externals Vs Internals Temporal Vs Eternal True freedom is not of this earth ... that is Why Christ came to be our Savior By faith .. I share .. the "key" is here: "It is in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. (here is purpose & identity) Long before we heard of Him .. he had his eye on us & designs on us for glorious living. (here is your 'rainbow") It is part of the overall purpose that He is working out in everything & everyone." ~ Ephesians 1

“What color is Light” When you look at a person What do you see? Are they big or small ? Are they short or tall? Are they black or white? Are they wrong, or right? Are they young or old? Within their year’s, what pearls unfold? Is a person “bad” or “good”? This is not easily understood. Does the color of one’s skin .. reveal the person deep within? Does color make you want to fight Does color make you “wrong or right” What color is Light? The color of skin is a repeated, wrongful excuse. Historically & politically distorted with MISUSE Does the color of the skin .. reflect the Light within? God knows the quality of your light. Nothing is hidden from His prescient sight. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fay-vietmeier-pennsylvania/what-color-is-light
