Protect Me

Dear Dad,

Open up your mind and you will find the mastery of God’s unwary love so define. A Black Man with so much spirit the chains and shackles can’t contain the love and wisdom locked away in you/r brain. Search for me like you would a missing babe, and you find a black man grown to an age Trayvon, Michael, Renisha, and Jordan couldn’t attain. Protect me with your prayers, love me with your heart, Americans thoughts of me while growing better are still so dark.

Your son,

Johnnie Jackson
