That Is Human



We are born into the worst is true

you disable me, you saw the blackness

In me and you felt fear, I hold my hands up

for you to see, I am only human.


Just like you.

with only a shade of color within.

You disable me.


you disable me with a classification

somewhat forgotten, but i carried it on

to the next unity


I hold my hand up for you to see!

i am only human, just like you.

Shame not on my forehead.


I am you!

you are me!


I embrace who I am!

black and white are

only colors.

that Is human.


I am from the songs of liberty

I stand tall!


my fathers and mothers pave my way.

I stand tall!


I am unity.

upon my feet I shall walk

with victory i stand!


I hold my hand high

it reach the sky!

my Creator

created me.


I am only human , just like you.

that Is human.








A Shade Of Grace



I stood behind the shadow of fear.

It was like a paper bag with a tilt

because of the color of my shade

perhaps a beaten soul

that was rape from existence

I stood tall behind the shadow of

fear, I felt empty  I crumbled over

fear and stood my ground. I hush

my fear, below my feet.

I grasp the feeling In my gut.

and close my eyes and listen to my inner

thoughts, I felt free I am from the hands of

grace, my experience is my journey a lesson

felt over a shadow of grace.

    Opal, I am proud to know of your work and to see such sublime representation here. Your writing is magnificently extraordinary and most necessary to be read, to be shared within all media sites as much as possible, to be seen and savoured; truly inspirational and as exquisitely beautiful as you so are. Outstanding.
