The Gift Unnoticed

by Tracy Mckever

Don't think that I don't notice you
Standing idly by
Waiting for me to
Acknowledge your presence
Just because I don't reply
When you stare
Doesn't mean
That I don't see you there
I appreciate your patience
Admire your fragrance
What are you wearing?
Is that the scent of a man?
I understand your plight
Encourage your fight
Drawn by your light
Aroused by your might
You are...Mr. Right
Black brother
My matter of fact brother
Cutting no slack brother
Ready to scrap brother
Timberland, jeans, skullcap brother
Boots strapped prepared for war brother
Nine to five hard-hat brother
When I depart I come back brother
Take care of home brothers
Love doesn't roam brothers
Causing sistahs to foam brothers
True to the roots use no comb brothers
Gangsta leaning to the side wheels chromed out brothers
Business suit and necktie brothers
Do or die brothers
Ain't ashamed to cry brothers
Never say good-bye brothers
Red-eyed stay getting high brothers
Not afraid to try brothers
Not afraid to question why brothers
Come along brothers
Be strong brothers
Hang on brothers
Black Men can do no wrong brothers...
Thanks for being TRUE
A gift overlooked by the world
But I notice you
