Black is a concept 

not a fact 

A divide 

A gulf 

A lie 

Black is a whip, 

a chain 

A fallacy 

A theory 

To justify white supremacy 

White privilege 

White hierarchy 

Black is a label 

A title 

An other 

A fence to climb over 

A discarded skin to jump out of 

A burden to be elevated from 

A dirty uncomfortable secret 

A fairy time bed story 

To scare little white children 

Into sleep. 

South Africa has left it's scars, poetry is the only way for me to move forward, it's not pretty but it helps.....
