( Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #45, #Tanka, Hate & Pride)
I’m excited to take part in Colleen’s Poetry Challenge and chose the theme; Race. It’s a subject very close to my heart. I enjoyed the process so much, I decided to write both a Tanka and a Free verse form. The latter; entitled Black and Proud (free verse).
BLACK AND PROUD
An end to hate; dreamed
A dream to defend my race
Pride in my dark hue
Judged, only by character
Not the colour of my skin
