WHAT WE SEE

DO YOU SEE ME…..

There is a struggle within

The air I breathe

Confined by others insecurities.

Broad shoulders, strong back

Dissapointed by the opportunities

Smeared by portrayals in the media of what it means to be black.

True identity, culture and sport is what they lack.

Im eyed suspiously without cause

Rarely guide through with applause

There is a struggle within

The air I breathe

A son, A brother but first a man

The inability to control views first hand

No one sees the father or the nephew

Indiscriminately they glare

With an unbridled stare

Unfazed by brown eyes that show no fear.

There is a struggle within

The air I breathe

As I dig deep to see me

To walk the steps in the spirt of the free.

Examining the hidden messages aimed at me.

I breed new life into the vision I see.

Tall strong and culturally obsessed

Intelligence and security I possess

Passed forward for free so

The struggle within

The air I breathe

Dies with me.
