the near north
I see
A future
Made up of
Past and present
Revelations
Of an infantile nation
With all its children (states)
In turmoil

Would there were more
Could there be more

I see
Yesterdays
Down Mississippi ways
When victims of
Jim crow’s bigotry said
“Lift my spirit up
And all the muck
Messing up my day
Will fall away.”

I see
Little ones crying
And older ones sighing
Coz teenagers be buying
All the crap laid down before them
Like hemp (marijuana)
Methamphetamines
Crack cocaine
And all the games
The system has in store
(For them)
Black
White
Brown
It doesn’t matter
Coz the maddhatter
Be wearing his hat
Backwards
Today
…This ackward situation
Gotz me stressing and fussing
(Ova) nothing

I see
The world
Martin dreamt of
When he spoke of
Equality amongst the races
And all the faces
Racism has
Scarred

I see
The injustices
Decried by all
…The big and the small
And tall tales
Your neighbor tells
Just so he can be heard

I see
A world
…where a man isn’t judged
On the color of his skin
But the content of his character

That was Martin’s dream
A world I see
In a not-so-distant future
In this land of liberty

I see
Neighborhoods
Where no one worries about
“The no good”
Coz there AIN’T none

I see
A day
Reflective of yesterday
When we didn’t have to lock our homes
When a woman could walk down the street
ALONE
(At any hour)
Where offers of help
Would be the only
Disruption
She would face

In any case

I see
A future
“When the highest mountain
And the smallest mole hill
Is home to racial prejudice
NO MORE”

I see
Biracial babies
Becoming the
“Most common baby”
In all the land

Please understand

We’re a race-mixing people
Man or woman
It’s all equal
A rainbow of colors
Butter pecan sisters and brothers
Loving one another

We don’t want no trouble

I see
Safe zones, in
Hushed…but sympathetic tones
For the weak and afflicted
…The homeless and infected
And all the neglected (citizens)
Who have no voice

I see
A choice
Made so long ago
That explains the depths
Of a lonely soul

(Whoa)

I see
Better days
On information super highways
And wholesome ways
To say what we need to (say)
…All kinda ways to be true
To the things we say
And what we do.

I see
Barrack
As President
With Hillary being
Melodramatic
And the stage of a world
He represents
Standing tall for a cause
With money well spent

I see
Birdy-bees
In humming trees
With bloomers being
Deflowered
And sensitive needs
Avoiding release
From the boom
Of which others
Cower

I see
The song
The tambourine played
Before the tambourine man strayed
Into the world of
(misbehaving)

I see you.
 
a sight to see...

I see
Neighborhoods
Where no one worries about
“The no good”
Coz there AIN’T none

I see
A day
Reflective of yesterday
When we didn’t have to lock our homes
When a woman could walk down the street
ALONE
(At any hour)
Where offers of help
Would be the only
Disruption
She would face

In any case

I see
A future
“When the highest mountain
And the smallest mole hill
Is home to racial prejudice
NO MORE”

It is the vision that can start the ball rolling.

I enjoyed seeing through your poetic eyes...

more please!



Be Blessed
