Poem; From Slavery to Equity

Poem; From Slavery to Equity

EQUITY!
E Q U A L ITY!
Equity and Equality, two words that speak
Activating the substance of Black lives
Equity from the possession of Black people,
The selling value, even to procreate
Production through slave labour,
The physicality to create
Manufacturing industrial ability.
Major foundation of today’s productive world
Hindrance from the acme

Equality is a status given to all at birth.
Resisting due to constraints
Through greed and manipulation equality Died

The change occurs when
The A as in African and L as in lives
By tyranny, were removed from EQUALITY
Created EQUITY for European slave traders.
Irony is today, equality has not returned
For the Black man, the A and L are still not back
Into EQUITY we are searching for Equality
Equity will continuously multiply exponentially
Until we accept the injustice and rectify
Black Lives Matter, there will never be Equality
When equity catch a fire hearts murmur,
Souls cry
No one heasr the voices of the Blacks that die
