    you know what i see from my bedroom window,

    Sirens blaring through silence,crowded streets disperse seeking safe haven,
    police unholster weapons,as guns begin blazing,
    crack heads,hide behind buildings in search of safety,
    While 2 weeks later,cop's are awarded medals for there bravery,

    An I see all this from my bedroom window,

    Unjust tortures cast upon my peeps,
    through tax's in a manipulated economy,
    Make the rich richer,the poor poorer,
    an im just wondering will their be captian crunch in the morning for me and mine
    i see a
    Protest from wino father's who love was blind,
    now praying for the white man so be so kind
    to kick him down a quarter.

    An I see all this from my bedroom window,

    Homeless approach car windows ajar,dude says"I am broke to"
    Eating a big mac,
    a pack of tic tacs,
    after tossing out some tofu,

    looking around I see faces in windows,
    reminding me of what they see on the block,
    Corners surrounded by
    drug dealers,
    crackheads,
    prostitutes,
    but we spend a million dollas a hour in Iraq,

    looking at tv
    I see men in suits wit
    Stacy Adams boots,
    with a rolex,wipping a beamer,
    no coffee in his cup only non dairy creamer
    and i wonder
    will my vote really change all this on my block
    or will dope keep on sellin
    and will that loud *** ***** on the corner keep yelling
    "give ya **** a party baby you see it's" the
    same **** different pile on my block

    An i see all this from our bedroom window..... :bazooka:

    I would love to see
    what other poets would
    write if they were to write
    what they see...from their
    bedroom window...
    not with rose colored glasses
    but for what you truly see
    and what your intial reaction
    and emotion is or was...
    the raw and unabridged truth
    just as you have composed
    in this passionately moving
    flow of "life"...stripped of
    it's pretty clothing...

    Passionate write...
    Much love,
    Sage
