Strong Ones

February 12, 2016

Our greatest protectors 
are not brolic brothers
Hard in vulnerable places
Frail behind fists 
They exist dipped to dripping
in holiness 
You hear it in their eyes
Always saying I love you
Always meaning
It takes a village 
Then gives much more 
In return 
For their work is selfless 
Knowing God and being humble
is a disciplined abandon 
Done for us
Since we can't live 
Without them there is no blessing
Being done
If we are anything 
We are blessed 
To have intercession 
Between Black and God 
Strong ones
