What is Black? by Mokete Boya

Poem

what is black?

is it us, our skin?
the (sin) it reeks of
that’s what they proclaim to us

but to us, what are we?

a sacred breed unkind to self

the hate is much,
it floods
it is in the genocide
the vile wording
the choice of reaction

we hate ourselves
caught between hatred and obscurity

we are scared to fight,
for our place on earth

for our existence
