What is Blackness

What is Blackness?

Is it the colour of my skin that represents my mentallity?
Is it the colour of the crown on my head that shows where I reign?
Is it the depth of my soul's missary?
Is it in the contrast indicating my sanity?
Is it in it length indicating my religion?

Because...

It is the colour of the black whole I veiw from, absorbing all I've seen
It is the colour of my shoes indicating where I've been
It is the colour of death drawing me to live
Drawing stregnth from its nothingness compelling me to give
Up suffercating air that makes it hard to breathe
'Cause it the pure symbol of evel but in only God I beieve
'Cause it is the colour of the dreded hair locking brain in a weave.
