In the ashes

Something dark is hidden away
that once had precious time to play
In success , that was short and sweet
In the fade , with no chance to greet
always to be judged without care
In a mainstream world that isn't fair
our black planet had it's day
history is made so now we fray
It's better to end than to fade
and look back on the genius that we made
It may seem sad to lie at rest
but being our own is what we do best
we lie discretely in the dark
and hope to touch another's heart
open your eyes and look around
alternative is art not just looks or sound.
