The Color of his skin makes him different from everyone

His face and back both scorched by the sun

His hands rough like the sand of the sea

This man....broken and tattered all in slavery

His eyes tells the story of pain

Whips, Scars, and also bounded by chains

The only peace he find is the sleep at night

But how can he sleep in fear of the man who is white

One mistake and this man is attack

All because of his color....all because he is black...
