“Love is a hill worth dying on”

As one-half of a mixed-ethnicity relationship for the last 8+ years, I immediately liked this poem/song.  Micah Bournes frequently speaks truth to power.  For his most recent album, he is doing a lyrical analysys for each of the tracks.

I would like to thank my parents for, when I told them I had begun a new relationship (remember, now 8 years ago), they asked what color hair she had.  My response was “she’s black” and they were a-ok with that answer.

Love is a hill worth dying on.  I enjoy walking down the street with my family, where the kids we have in tow don’t look like the product of both of us.
