WHAT DO YOU SEE ?

DO YOU SEE ME…..

There is a struggle within.
The air I breathe,
Chained and confined by others insecurities.
Dark skin, Broad shoulders and a strong back
Dissapointed by the lack, in opportunities
Smeared by portrayals in the media of what it means to be black.
True identity, culture and spirt is what their representations lack.
I’m eyed suspiously without cause
And Rarely guide through with applause
.
There is a struggle within
The air I breathe
A son, A brother but first a man
They can’t see the lover in me
Or 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
Neglects my future generation
New life, new nation
.
There is a struggle within
The air I breathe
That will die with me.

LIFE ………….. . . The ground is my V I S I O N. From it I R I S E. E V E R Y pore. To the C O R E. I N S I D E. As I stumble I remember each S T R U G G L E I faced. I understand it was my P L A C E. The right S P A C E. I S U R V I V E D. Walking along a P A T H that G O D has made for me. Im C O N F I D E N T everything was M E A N T to be. As I continue on this path of life. Throughout H A P P I N E S S. Throughout strife. I inhale, breath and E M B R A C E.
