Black PrideMy Blues
by Doris Washington

Broken Dreams
Many Disappointments
Closed Doors
Delayed Goals
Long Suffering
Undue Financial Burdens
Overworked, and Not Enough Pay
Insufficient Love
Less Time to Breathe
Too Much Discrimination
Racial Profiling
Disability Rights Overlooked
Not Enough Diversity
Families Drifting Away
Poor Health Care
Lack of Education
Many Hungry People
Children Dying
A Mother’s Cry
My Blues
