"Brothers Loving Brothers" by Lloyd Vega
Like a black rose,
you are a rarity to be found.
Our leaves intertwine as I reach out to you
after the release of a gentle rain.
You precious gem,
black pearl that warms the heart,
symbol of ageless wisdom,
I derive strength
from the touch of your hand.
Our lives blend together like rays of light;
we are men of color,
adorned in shades of tan, red,
beige, black, and brown.
Brothers born from the same earth womb,
Brothers reaching for the same star.
Love me as your equal.
Love me, brother to brother.
