May I Share With You?…



May I live
Unafraid to breathe
Free from a choke-hold
That becomes a stronghold
May I live
Unafraid to live
Clinging to my expectations
With feral desperation


May I share space
Unafraid of being encased
Free from condemnation of race
That becomes a strong base
Purple, White, Olive, Black and every hue within
May I share space
Knowing that we are first a human race
…And all blood are red in this place.


May I speak of belief
Unafraid and in relief
Free from contentious eyes of disbelief
That becomes thresholds of grief
May I wear my mask of belief
Understanding that to achieve
Peace would be a welcome reprieve
…Which we must seek to retrieve.


May I love you
Unafraid to be bound to you
Free from censors of broken whispers
That becomes harbingers of cold shivers
May I love freely my love
Unafraid to expose my naked bust
Knowing that in you lies my trust
Encased in the warm embrace of your love.

  1. The flow is fantastic. Would you mind if I shared this with my son so he can put a beat to it. (He is in the music industry) This is a fantastic rap! When it’s done I can email you the finished product to listen to. He would not sell it or use it without your permission though so don’t worry about that possibility.

    1. Thank you very much Gradmama. I feel very pleased. I am a bit surprised that the RE-BLOG button is missing, ‘cos it was there earlier and another friend wanted to re-blog which she did. I am sure it’s a WordPress issue ‘cos I haven’t tinkered with my settings at all. Let’s hope it comes right back and Yes you may Re-blog my lady. My warm regards.


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
