still here

A slave is beaten up so much... he is afraid of so many things. his hope
have been scattered just as the wind scatters the fallen leaves. the snow
has curled him tightly and where the sun symbolizes happiness even that has
given him pain. the happiest and the saddest moments only pain him.between
the slave master and the authorities he has been tortured enough.even if
people stop laughing,loving living. he is yet there and will always be
there.

Live laugh love

This is a great poem. Just saying I don't care I'm still here seems so
Powerful. You can overcome anything if you have the right attitude. Stay
strong now, things will get better. It may be stormy now, but it can't rain
forever.

This poem really let's everyone know that inspite of The economic situation
we are facing, "We are still here" God has something better in store for us
if we just hold on keep the faith, never stop laughin, lovin, and livin. As
long as we can look up, we can get up!!!!! It's a blessing to be here.

Normally I'm not a fan of any pro-/anti- race poetry, but I like this
poem, and it has a meaning to me even though I'm white. It's not specific
in saying "negro" or whatnot, allowing you to interpret it in your own way
and apply it to your own life. I'm sorry to hear that he passed away,
though...

I like this poem, normally I'm not a fan of any kind of pro-or-anti-race
poetry, but this has a meeaning to me even though I'm white, because you
can interpret it your own way and apply it to your own life, rather than
being thrown off by the specificication of "Negro!" and so on.
