Black Man and White Woman

In a world where colors intertwine,

A tale of love, so truly divine,

A black man and white woman, tales through generations,

Bound by a love that they both understand.

Racist societies may try to draw dividing lines,

But their love defies, it intertwines,

Their hearts beat as one, in harmony,

United by love’s purest symphony.

In Elizabeth’s eyes, Kwame sees a reflection of his soul,

A love that’s deep, beyond control,

She sees his strength, his spirit so bright,

Together they conquer any plight.

Through trials and triumphs, they will not fall,

Breaking down barriers, standing strong and tall,

For love knows no boundaries, no shade nor hue,

Their bond a testament, forever true.

Pure love, in which the world should find hope,

A love that transcends, helps us cope,

With prejudice and hatred, they rise above,

Teaching us the power of compassion and love.

May those who are bound to love, regardless of race inspire us all,

Let it be tales, that never grows old,

A black man and white woman, hand in hand,

An eternal love, that forever will stand.
