Inmate Penpal Listing I’m Black Like That – Prison Poetry

November 14, 2011  ¤  Listed in : Hewritt Dixon - Poetry

I’m like Cuervo Black…smooth and dark.
I’m like the muddy waters of the mighty Mississippi.
You can’t see whats beneath it, but a world of activity is going on deep down below.
Yeah, I’m black like that!

I’m like a black hole…that “void” they say exists in space.
Others have tried to rob me of my identity.
I wonder if they even see me at all.
Yeah, I’m black like that!

The wealth of this country is due to the sweat of my brow,
and the strength of my back.
