Ease renga

Born lucky, privileged
to pursue a life of ease.
Embrace the unlucky.

Recite those murky struggles
often to change your known world.

Born into struggle.
An unknown battle through youth.
Precious few escape.

Resolve to break systemic
control by the privileged many.

The ease of the whites
to turn away from black pain
produces pained land.

Decide to delete divides.
Devote muscle for race unity.
