    Have you ever felt as though
    You were invisible
    Often while they stare at you
    Like you're a ghoul :ghost:

    If forever is MELANIN
    Let us hear from you
    Really soon...

    Why we brothers get mistaken
    for smooth Criminals

    Rap attached for Driving Black
    In our new Rolls

    I am hardly invisible
    To the po-po's car
    Stalking ya'll

    God, I wish that they
    Could feel our

    MIGHT

    Lord, I pray my soul
    Has paid the price

    for LIFE ~

    what feels unseen is seen
    with eyes of pain they stor upon
    us to lable us through da color of
    Blackness , walk upon da goodness
    of light for the price been paid long ago.

    I feel u deeply on this one and know as i can relate.

    Being made to feel that you couldn't possibly have paid for something with hard earned cash, must be something shady going on. smh Keep shining your poetic light on that truth.
