Portraiture By Anita Scott Coleman (Mini Fiction Week 30)

Black men are the tall trees that remain
standing in a forest after a fire,
Flames strip their branches,
Flames sear their limbs,
Flames scorch their trunks,
Yet, stand these trees,
For their roots are thrust deep
In the heart of the earth.
Black men are the tall trees that remain
standing in a forest after a fire.
