LIFE &DAYS, by Anthony L. Waters


yo I kelpt it real from the get go,
must I say more,
black people always lived in the lions den,
never understood our enemy’s but loved our friends,
some things in life can’t make us comprehen,
like why hateful playful people want to darken their skin,
many tried to fold and break us but we never could bend,
singing songs from the church house to the second floor of the pen,
shedding tears to wash away the sin,
same people who hug me they judged me,
acting like they above me,
I’m living in a place that’s wet and muggy,
so its easy to rub me the wrong way,
I debar the violence of this hard life,
people lieing on people,
people spying on people,
while people dieing on people,
back in the day it was a white mans world and a black man grief,
now a days its a white mans nightmare and black mans relief,
it’s women hour to be enpowered for they are God’s most precious flowers,
no more hiding in the shadows of being a coward,
love is sweet hate is sour,
so as we now witness the wicked that get devoured,
I expect to get knocked down unexpectedly like the twin towers,
it may hurt for a minute,
we may shed tears that run down our face like April showers,
please remember April showers bring May flowers,
but I as a black man will rise again as the sun do in east,
because I understand I am always fighting like a warrior,
so my people would not be food in belly of the beast.

this is the life of our days,
we piercing the water with rocks just to see the waves,
walking blindly through a maze,
so when do our duty trump loyalty,
everyday we awake we write poerty..

peace to the true and living
