Ebony




Dark can absorb light
Light can absorb dark
Ebony magazine is that light
A voice for the afro American

Ebony is dark wood
Wood from the Ebony tree
The tree has its roots
Deep in the dark earth

Ebony is made for music
Piano keys are made from it
They bring light in every heart
just by touching the string of it

Light and dark are one of a kind
Bring them together and feel the change
Of them coming closer as a whole
No Oneness in separation
