    as i walked in spirit i saw
    a woman cry
    swollen face black eye
    cops came by to stress charges
    "mam would you like to press charges"
    she later wails her reply
    "i love him. i......i'll give him another try"
    they leave i'm grieved
    "why don't you leave this guy" i yelled
    but she can't hear or see me
    she shuts the door
    i'm thinking "haven't i walked here before"

    what's nigh..........

    passing by i sigh
    bullets fly- with memories
    (eye) witness..
    at the command of cops he stops
    as i saw the infrared being aimed at the back of his head
    i sped screaming to him "noooo, run now"
    as they release the hollow lead he drops as though dead...
    cops fled
    i hover over his slain body and long dreads
    as his blood shed, representing a spread of violence
    toward the race
    i cover his face saying "cursed is this place America i tread"

    what's nigh

    a young girl's cry
    16 pregnant
    daddy's not nigh
    mother's high from a thug's supply of drug supply
    as she sticks the needle in her vein
    brain cells fry
    but she won't have a grandbaby to pacify for tomorrow it is scheduled to die...
    an hour shy from procedure
    i cry " i beg you to at least try" but she can't hear me
    but she said "why try" as the abortioner gathers his gadgets of death i take a deep breath.

    when it was over he stores the embryo in jars for latter stem cell research
    her reminder is the permanent bruise on her thigh as she cries..

    what's nigh
    i can't believe my eye as i pry in his office...
    thinking "this politician is lawless"
    he couldn't see me as his 2 colleagues plot saying "this is the gold in our pot"
    later that day he held a rally appearing in masquerade as the patriot's music played...
    it then stops...
    he reiterates his lie, he reiterates his lie to the people who gave a thunderous reply
    over me saying "do not vote for this guy"
    but they can't see me... only if they were the spy...

    what's nigh....

    i stop walking for now i choose to fly in spirit where deaf ears and blind eyes can't occupy...

    jehiah.
