The Black Man’s Why


Why do I fear tragedy
Why do I hate the me and in me

Why do I love women who are white
Why do I fail to treat black ones right

Why does my country hate me so
Why is average the furthest I can go

Why must I settle for a closed mind
Why must I despise my own kind

Why I am a product of the institution
Why do I believe lies and confusion

Why do I have to go to Hell to see Heaven
Why must I wish on eleven eleven

Why must I drink to forget today
Why must I convince myself to stay

Why is there no Malcolm X day
Why is do white people also love MLK
