Kind Of Blue (Miles Davis)

by sneak_n_freak

Too many people in the shade of blue
Too many are true to the color blue

Yet, some pretend....

Some bend themselves to fit the mold.
Why am I so blue?
They ask themselves
But what they really are is confused
Not everyone can wear this kind of blue

Not as Miles....

For he so Black, he could be Blue-Black
Cuz in my opinion he wears the hell of
blue, he should be called
King of the Bluest Blue
So true, he is the truest
Blackest blue-black man
To ever touch me with chords
and move me without words
To think and question
Why so many negroes 
try to be in the shade of blue

Can it be Miles, that like you
I be the bluest of the blue, like you
Even though I'm not as black as you

If I was brave
I would be sent to my grave
titled Queen of the Blue
one who was true to her Black & Blue soul
A soul that took full control
and sought out magical chords
ones that reached out & touched other
Blue-Black souls & moved them without words
As you've done, to me...
