Art And Culture


Black is not a colour…
Not even a creed or community.

Invisible and
senseless fence that we create.

We make them silent
apartheid and

Lost ethics
of  humanity

No matter how hard you try to hide it
will come out as a sorrowful
torn grey petticoat material

Measure the distance
From white
to black
then only You can
touch the virtue of black
Until then black
will be black

Years of maturity
that they pretend
of the white-headed
is futile

Don’t mock at black
Don’t blacken your heir
That black is strong youth
accept the truthiness
of black

How much you covered
with white and being
an angel or priest
Death is black

Black is a reality

White is white painted
Power or invasion

While you mention black
Everything that exists
is dark

Virtue of darkness
prevailed everywhere
