»Black Love«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, August 6, 2019

The gift from the gods, the
power of melanin cosmic connections.
The simple Ubuntu greetings and sharing of
happiness in good times, and societies
holding hands with those who are mourning
is love in its purest form. Black love has fought
many wars, some victories and some wars lost.
But black love has stayed steadfast in its being.
black love does not personify hatred, but is the
embodiment of strength, peace and everything
godly in this life and eternity.
