Respect yourself, my brother, for we are so many wondrous things.
Like a black rose, you are a rarity to be found. Our leaves intertwine as I reach out to you after the release of a gently rain.
You precious gem, black pearl that warms the heart, symbol of ageless wisdom, I derive strength from the touch of your hand.
Out lives blend together like rays of light; we are men of color, adorned in shades of tan, red, beige, black, and brown.
Brothers born from the same earth womb,
Brothers reaching for the same star.
Love me as your equal.
Love me, brother to brother…
