Black Poetry : Gotta keep my head up

Gotta keep my head up
or my head may bang on
pitying stars that have died and
reside just above my head
at six feet two before
I bend on my wounded knees
to bury my happiness
six feet....

Gotta keep my head up
before I run head on and
collide with a smile that has
met it's date after the "dash"
read on tombstones

Gotta keep my head up
before I slip back in time
and enslave myself to
a stocism that despair
hung around my neck like
an upside down cross

excuse me Lord blasphemy
is not the intent because
my faith soars with the clouds
that play with the birds that
fly free but my vision is
blurry, my mind is water logged
my tears flow INversely

and I'm drowning.
