My Black Man (Two)

by Catherinebutterfly

He got trouble as he moved out into the world
Trouble’ was in his way at every turn
At every run, at every twist’
The white supremacist didn’t miss.
Some call him a racist
Some call him a fool
Some told him that he need to return to school
But they didn’t know that was okay. 
No matter what they say He was gonna love them any way.
He was stepping out no matter what they had to say.
They pushed him
They poked at him
They even asked him was he against white people
He stood back, looked them in the eye, no smile, no frown
From face to face he said unto them
Not afraid of what they could do to him.
No, that would be total stupidity
But I am against white supremacy you know
White male dominance
That has come to enslave or to make
 Me and my people look inferior.

Even as he begin to climb the corporate ladder 
They showed him the American dream
But as he started his ascent, they wanted him to repent
For him they resented
He experienced the great American nightmare as 
He smashes against the invisible glass ceiling.
They’d let him see the dream, but they tried to stop his entrance.
But God brought him through any how.
