    it grieves me so
    when my eyes do scan
    across this squalid scene
    but as i grimace with pain
    i stand erect and vow
    that this won't make me a broken man
    my eyes well up with tears
    and overflow over this mess
    and it's hard to keep my feet
    my knees want to buckle
    i must confess
    but i will not give up
    i will not lose my dignity
    nor bow to this overcoming grief
    i feel so much sorrow
    and i feel hatred
    directed towards
    the cowardly bastard and thief
    who is still after my manhood
    and who has stolen my peoples' lives
    who shows no mercy and no remorse
    i struggle to keep my head clear
    and not to lose direction
    cause the great come back
    needs well directed force
    i vow my life as sutures
    stitch by stitch
    to mend the futures
    that we need in order to see our children prosper
    and i won't lose my dignity
    i won't lose my cool
    i refuse to get complacent
    we must over rule
    the negativity that's being directed
    towards our being and worth
    we have to continue
    to carve out our spaces upon this planet earth
    and we will taste our victory
    our progeny shall win
    the main goal before us
    is not to give out
    not to give up
    and not to give in

    Speak, brother, my mind is wide open.

    Let me print this up as a psalm 4 my mornings.

    Very nice piece.
