black and white trickle verse

You are black

I am white

our color 

is only 

skin deep

If you are 


you bleed red 

as do I

If you bring 

children into this 

world you celebrate 

as do I

When a loved 


leaves this world 

you mourn

as do I

For I know

as the end 

of days for me

I'll cry out 

"Lord Lord" 

as will you...
