Alicia Keys unveiled a sweet piece of poetry dedicated to her son on Wednesday (June 3) in honor of the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement.
Using the #blacklivesmatter hashtag, the star paired the poem with an adorable photo of five-year-old Genesis building a toy tower. My beautiful baby boy/ So curious and pure/ Yet SO clear about what you don’t want/ “NO!” you say with vigor/ When you don’t like something going on in your small but powerful 5-year-old-world⁣," she wrote. "I hope that never changes⁣/ I hope that inner strength and fire/ Never extinguishes⁣/ And you never feel the sway to fit in⁣/ Or be silenced⁣."
Keys continued the stanza by sharing her hopes for her son's future: "I have a STRONG feeling you won’t/ That’s just not the fabric from which u came⁣/ Look at you:⁣/ Future architect, Builder, Mastermind, Wisdom keeper, Re-shaper, Change maker.../ My Beautiful Baby Boy⁣/ You are unstoppable!!!⁣"
At the bottom of the Instagram post, the singer directed fans to the link in her bio for ways they could "stay involved" in the fight for racial equity, including a map of protests happening around the country and resources including petitions to sign, organizations looking for donations and online voter registration.
