Watching

This cuts right to the heart of

the crisis young black men face every day.

When we are not at home, relaxed and loved,

We are watching. When we are not in the

classroom, told we are young, gifted, and black

with the world ahead of us, we are watching.

When we make it past our youth and our own

family has grown, we are still watching.

Waiting for our sons to make it home.

Black America is always watching, waiting for

the phone to ring!
