Black man not Swiss

I'm a Black man not Swiss
But you want me to smile and say cheese. I'm a black man the color of the land is that must be the reason you want to walk on me. I'm a black man pure and true that must be the reason you envy me. I'm a black man white in the womb but with every breath I take brown becomes me. Is that why you hate me so? because I do things you'll just never know. I'm a black man surely you can see god made me from the land surely your deceiving me. I'm a black man that's real and true. When I leave this land I'll still be black and your body will too my friend.

I'm an African-American poet and I love to write. It's something that I feel releases what my people feel and I wanna be the voice for the ones who can't speak or are too scared to speak.
