Teach me to swim in the moonlight

in the moonlight, black boys look blue

i never understood why my skin made me different from you

because on the inside,it’s blind,like the love that sinks it’s teeth

to the yearning of my heart beat and the crickets dancing at my feet

and all this silence ,was my glory to keep

in watching you breathe,as you struggled to sleep

and you knew the moon was crescent at it’s peak

and swimming in deep waters,still i heard you speak

now,i run, sometimes still but in my mind always moving

and i yearn to be better, always learning and improving

cos the moonlight changes faces,and sometimes so do i

sometimes with the gaze of a lion, you would never know i cry.
