” A Better Way ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 12/2/2008

There … HAS TO BE … !!!

A … ” Better ” … Way … !!!

There … HAS TO BE … !!!

A … ” Better ” … Way … !!!

There … HAS TO BE …
A ….. BETTER WAY …… !!!!!

Than how we’re … ” Living ” …
……. ” Nowadays ” ……. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO … Forgiving …
Minds … Dis-placed …

Thinking Things …
That … Lead to … HATE … !?!

Drug Induced …
cos’ … That’s The … ” Juice ” …
That … New Age Crews …
are now … Into … !!! …

OTHERS … Too … !!!
Now think it’s … ” Cool ” … ?

To … Live their lives …
HIGH ON …. Denial … ?!?

There … HAS TO BE … !!!
A … Better Way … !!!

To … Nurture Seeds …
Inside … ” Our Brains ” …

MORE ….
Depth of Mind … !!!

WITHOUT … The Lines …
May … Help you … MORE …
I Think … You’ll Find … !?!

Less … thought of war …
MORE …. Thoughts of Peace …

MORE … Thoughts of Warmth …
Less … coldness PLEASE … !!! …

Turn down … ” fallacies ” …
So that … we can … SPEAK …
About the things … we all …

…….. Believe ………

Lessa … dividing … !!!
and … colliding … !!!

MORE … Combining …
Those who … STAND …
for MORE Than … Grands …

So that … We Can …
Build … SOLID Plans …
That PROTECT … Our Lands …
From … ” Harmful ” … Hands … !!!!!

UNITE … Humans …
From … DIFFERENT Strands …

” The Game’s ” … to … PLAY
NOT … Desecrate … !!!!! …

It’s … NOT OKAY … !!!
To … HATE A … ” Race ” …
because they … Move …
Differently … to YOU … !!!

There … HAS TO BE …
A … ” Better Way ” …

Come On …
It’s TRUE … !!!!!

Just ….
THINK It … Through …

Less fights ………………………………………………………. in sight …….
Would be …. ALRIGHT …. !!! ? !!!

and may … HELP You …
Feel … SAFE at Night … !?!

Unless you’re … COOL …
with life … These Days …

If you are … OKAY … !!!

But let’s get things … STRAIGHT … !!!
Things are NOT … Okay Today … !!!!!!!!!

RISING … Hate …
cos’ life’s a … STRAIN … !!!

Less … Youthful veins …
Than … WEBSITE NAMES … !?!

MORE LIES … than … ” Faith ”
MORE … Killers today …
Than … DINNERS On … Plates … !!!

MORE Laws than … ” States ” …
MORE Whores than … ” Babes ” …

MORE … Silicone Bits …
Than … BIG OL’ … Dicks … !!!!

SEE …..
These are things …
That … Make me … THINK … !?!

There … HAS TO BE …
BETTER WAYS …. to live … !!!!!!!!!!!!!

and YES … Okay …
A …. BETTER WAY … !!!

It’s just … Wordplay …
at the … End of the Day …

But …
THINK About …
The things I … Say …

And ….
Things now …. FOUND …
to be … DISPLAYED …
by people … “Bound” …
by … what they … FACE …
in Todays … ” New Age ” …

A world … WITHOUT …
Millions of … Pounds …

EXCEPT for … ” Those ” …
Who … Gave them roles …
that fed … ” False Hope ” …
and … ” Ropes for ” … DOPES … !!!!!

On which to … CHOKE … !!!!!!

Okay … THAT Quote …
May ROCK … Some Boats …
But … NOT in ways …
That … Systems SHAKE … !!!

Systems … ” Built ” …
to CONTROL … Wills …
and … LOCK THEM … “down” …
Like … MANY Now … !!! …

MANY … MORE …
Than … Years before … !!!

So Now the … HOARDS …
APPLAUD … ” The Cause ” …

But REALLY … ” aren’t sure ” … ?!?
What they’re … Clapping For … !?!

Because they … ” Choose ” …
to … AIR … The View …

That ……

“Everything’s cool, but i’m feeling you !”

“If you’re feeling me ?
Do something dude,
and face what’s true !
Then maybe we,
can see less bleed,
and more succeed in
finding peace !”

Less room for … “greed” …
and … “Fallacies” …

MORE SPACE for … Plates …
and … Equality …

So that … ONE DAY …
We ALL … Can Feed …

” Our Family ” …..

HUMANITY ….. !!!

I speak sometimes …
Within … my rhymes …

About … UNITY …
But right now it’s … EQUALITY …
I’m trying to … GET … !!!

cos’ it …. seems to me …

If … I’ve got … ONE …
and You’ve got … ONE …

What we fighting for … ?!?
We’re both still … POOR … !!!

Did …
That Line …. STUN … !?!

Were you thinking … GUN … ?!?

See ….
That’s the thing ….

It’s our … ” Thinking ” …
That … NEEDS TO … Equate …

So that Balance is … DISPLAYED …
in … ALL OUR WAYS … !!! …

Now that’s … PRETTY DEEP …
EVEN for … Me … !!!!!

“Whoa, now i’m SCARED !”

So I think that’s where …
I’ll let … My Pen …
Now Find … The End …

MORE TIME for … Patience ………
Less spent on … ” Ignorance ” … !!!!!

MORE … Upliftment … !!!!!
Less time for … “despair” …

MORE … Commitment … !!!!!
Less … “I Don’t Care” …

Less thoughts of … “Hate” …
and division of … Race … !!!!!

Less …
LUST for … ” Fame ” …
and a … ” Blinged’ Out ” … Range … !!!!!

What More … can I say … ?
Well … LESS … Gun Play … !!!

Cos’ there … HAS TO BE …

” A BETTER WAY ” ……. !!!!!!!

” Apocalyptic Times ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 31/7/2007

This Poem seems rather appropriate right now !

As I am currently residing in the Caribbean, these words are RINGING …
A Little TOO TRUE ….. Sadly …. !!!!

These rhymes … Reflect …
APOCALYPTIC Times … !!!

Times where minds …
are …………… Dismissing ………………………………………….. Signs …… !!!!!

That times ahead …..
Will see … BLOODSHED …
and … Loss of Life … !!!!! …

Times where … Crimes …
Refine … Bloodlines … !!!!!!

Like … ” Old Designs ” …
Primed to … ” Div-id-e ” …

Apocalyptic … times …
Reside inside …
Deep Seas with … ” Tides ” …
Now On … The rISE …
Just like … The Minds …
of … WICKED … Types … !!!!!!
whose Pride … DENIES …
to help the … ” Plight ” …
of those who … STRIVE …
Just to … ” Survive ” …
and Live a … ” Good Life ” …

The Type … who like …
to see us … Fight …
Like … ” Dogs in Bogs ” …
Fed On … WAR Songs …
and Words of … HATE … !?!

A Time and Place …
where … Technological Tools …
are used to … School …
our youth to … Abuse …
Like … VIOLENT Fools … !!!!!

VIOLENCE … Will Rule … !!!

Like DEVILS … Who …
Infuse with … Views …
That … Lead to … FEUDS … !!!

Which would … You Choose … ?!?

APOCALYPTIC … News … ?
or a place where … ” Love ” …

REIGNED … Up Above … !!!!!!

Just like … SUNSHINE …
in the … ” Summertime ” …

Well ….
Rhymes Like … ” These ” …
Paint … Different … scenes …

Scenes … OBSCENE … !!!!!
and ……. Far From …………………………………………………Clean … !!!!

Where ….
Peoples’ Dreams …
are … “FILLED WITH” … SCREAMS … !!!

Am I …. SCARING You … ?!?

If so … Not Cool … !!!

Why would you choose … ?
to take … The View …
That … What I Say …
Makes You … AFRAID … ?!?!?

Apocalyptic Trips …
May Well …. ECLIPSE … !!!

The Place in which …

Your Thinking ….. ” Lives ” ……

OUTSIDE … “TheBox” …
is where … Mine Is … !!!!!!

NOT IN …. ” Laptops ” ….
or …. VIOLENT … Stings … !!!

I Deal with … NOW …
and what … Surrounds …
Before i’m … CLOWNED …
and end up … “Drowned” … !!!!!

Or …
Worse yet … DEAD …
Like … Youthful Heads …
As … ” Current Trends ” …
would now … ” Suggest ” …

In Fact …. CONFIRM …. !!!!!!

Does it make you …
…….. ” Squirm …….. ? ”
to Read … Such words … !?! …

Well …….

Here’s a … ” Verse ” …
to … CALM … Your Nerves … !!!

They’re ONLY … ” Words ” … !!!!!!

That show … CONCERN …
About the world …
and how … it turns …

If we … ” Observe ” …
We may just … ” Learn ” …
How to … STEM This … SURGE … !!!
of Pain and … Hurt … !!!!!!

and make a … RETURN …
to Life being … PRESERVED … !!!!!

Let The DEVILS … Burn ……………………………………………….

and Make … PEACE WORK … !!!!!

Like … UNITY …
cos’ things like … ” These ” …
Will Help … ” Relieve ” ……………………………

Our Streets of … BEASTS … !!!
And …. ” POVERTY ” ….

And …. News Stories …
of … KILLING Sprees … !!!?!!!

Our Youth … are DYING …

Don’t You … SEE … ?!!!? …

These words are … TRYING …
to FEED … Our Seeds …
with … Something MORE …
Than ……. ” MTV ” …….. !!!!!!!!!!

BUT ….
Here’s The … SCORE … !!!

Too Many … ” Elders ” … TOO … !?!
are PROMOTING …. Wars ……
WITHOUT …. A Cause …. !!!?!!!

and NEED TO … ” Reduce ” …
Their … ANGRY … Moods … !!!

” Don’t try to front ! ”

” You know it’s true ! ”

Why take the view
that I’m … TOO BLUNT … ?!?

The time has … COME …
to …. ” Listen Up ” ……
and Fill …. ” Eardrums ” …
Like Kweli’ … Does … !!!

with words that … ” Soothe ” …………………….
and HELP … ” Improve ” …
The Minds who … ” Choose ” …

APOCALYPTIC … Moves … !!!!!

Like …
Dropping …. BOMBS …
That Breed … ” Phantoms ” …
and …. ” Tsunamis ” …. !!! ….

Do you ….
Get The …. ” Scene ” …. ???

NO TREES ….
NO LEAVES ….

NO …
Ice Caps left ….

Just …. WAR and DEATH … !!!!!

I Guess …. ?
to … ” Most of You ” …

This seems ……………………………………………………. ” Far Fetched ” ……

But …
THINK IT …. Through ……

What’s coming …. ” Next ” …. ?!?

FLOODING … Here …
and Flooding … THERE … !!!!

and then …. HEATWAVES …. !!!
that send … SHOCKWAVES … !!!

As Fires … BLAZE …
For …. DAYS and DAYS …. !!!!!

APOCALYPTIC …. Yes … !!!

So ….
What do you say … ?

Does THIS Poem …
and it’s … Wordplay …
Make … You Think …

I NEED A … ” Shrink ” … ?!?

Maybe … I DO … ???

But here’s the … ” Koo’ ” …

Apocalyptic things ….
ARE …… Happening …… !!!!!

CLOSER … to home …
and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!!!

Most folk … are BROKE … !!!
Or … SNORTING … Coc’ … !!!

With ….
NOWHERE … to go …
to find some … ” Hope ” … !!!

” OH I’M A PESSIMIST ! ”

” If You Insist ! ”

I’m simply …

writing things …
Through … ” Poetic Scripts ” …

That … Reflect how …

I Feel …
Right NOW …

Some Music … ” FILLED ” ……..
My Mind with …. THIS ….

Thoughts of … GLOOM …
and MUCH … “Darkness” … !!!!!

A … ” Discreet Flava ” …
DARKER THAN … ” Vader ” … !!!

Try to …. DENY …
and you … ” May Find ” …

That ….
What You … FIGHT …
Inside … ” Your Mind ” …

is the ….

TRUTH About ………
What’s ….. Coming …..

” Apocalyptic Times “

” Well Well Well ” … A Poem written by Big Virge 17/8/2005

Okay so, following on from my previous post …..

This was inspired by the, below stories….

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4157892.stm
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4158832.stm

However, when you look at current Whitehouse events,
they don’t seem to be, so far removed ……

So much for, ” The Don “, Bucking the trends of the …

” Status Quo ” … as I believe he indicated,
that Hilary C, would of maintained…..

Errr Hmmmm …..

Well, when it comes to Political Games, be they those, in the USA or the UK,
it seems to be the ….

” Same Ol’ Same ” …

Tut Tut now Mr. Trump,
surely you DIDN’T … LIE, to the good American People who voted for you ….. ?!?

LMFAOL ……. !!!!!!

Well Well Well…..

What can you smell … ???

ME … ?!?

I smell a … ” Crock of Lies “…
from … TOP LEVEL … Policing guys ……

I also smell … INCOMPETENCE … !!!!!!!!!

That’s why I wrote a poem …
and entitled it … ” Who’s Next ? “…

So people …
where’s your … ” Common Sense “… ?!?

Someone needs …
Some … ” Recompense “…

Right now … it’s …
… A Family …
whose son has died …

” IN A TRAGEDY !!! “….

Their son was living …
…. ” Happily “….

before he met …
…. CALAMITY …. !!!!!!!!!

This ain’t …
A … Doris Day … movie … !!!

This is cos’ …
He was … BULLIED … !!!
by those … ” clever “…
…. ” Met’ Police “….

NOT … like kids … !!!
with … Stupid Tricks …

but from … THIS …

REAL … Gun Bullets … !!!!!

This is … something …
TRULY … SICK … !!!!!!!!!

These are things …
They … DO Commit … !!!
to … EVERYONE … of colour …
Not just … ” Brazilian Kids “…

Ahhhhhhhhh…..

Let’s just get …
The Facts … CORRECT … !!!

He was … ” Asian “… ?!?
NO … ” African “… ?!?

Who Cares … !?!

He was …
An Immigrant … !!!!!

These are words
of … IGNORANCE … !!!!!

IGNORANCE …

is like … NONSENSE … !!!!!!

try using … THIS …

INTELLIGENCE … !!!!!

Better still …
Use … ” Common Sense “…

Who is it … !?!
that … ” Benefits “… ???

from a life …
of … Street Gunfights …

NOT … Black Folk … !!!

TRUST ME … that’s right …

How about … ?
TRUE … English Types …

Those who are …

WHITER …
than white … !!!

and …..
Hate to see …
Non-whites ….. in sight ….. ?!?

That’s a plight …
These … Racists Like … !!!
and then enforce …
with … ALL Their Might … !!!!

to put us … down …
in … English Towns … !!!

That’s why … So Many …
Young Blacks … FROWN … !!!

UNLIKE … most poets …
I’m … NO CLOWN … !!!!!!!

because my words …
buy souls … like pounds …

Who was bought … ???
this time around …

to keep … “the truth”…
inside … their mouth … ?!?

This is … REALLY …

… SICKENING … !!!!!

Even those …
who are … ” Legit “…
may get hit …
for where … they sit … !?!

NOT … with belts …
but with … BULLETS … !!!
or with … Axes … !!!
Think on that…

Racists … NEVER …
die like … THAT … ?!?

Watched … ALL NIGHT …
from … Council Flats …
by Police …
What’s up with that … ?!?

They take life …
with … Too Much … Stealth … !!!!!
while they just …

” Relieve “… themselves … !?!

Those are words …
that are … HEARTFELT … !!!

Check the report …
Your heart … will melt……….
if you’ve got …
Some … DECENCY … !!!

Unlike … YES …
These … MET’ Police … !!!!!!

who think … it’s right … ?
to simply be …

ABOVE … the law …

while people… Grieve… !!!

This poem…

comes from … MY ANGER… !!!!!

But …..
These Days…

Does it matter… ???

what we say …
or … what we do …
because our youth
are being … schooled …

in … PROPAGANDA …
NOT … The Truth … !!!!!

Trust me …
I am staying … ” cool “…

Your proof is …
how I … air my views …
Without resorting … to abuse …

Incitement’s … something …
for a …. FOOL …. !!!

This is … NOT …
something … I do … !!!

So just before ….
” They Try “… THAT ONE … !!!

Hatred is ……
something I …………………………………………………….

SHUN………………..

I write these things ….
for …. EVERYONE …

Don’t just … Trust …
… ” Technology “…

or these … KILLING … !!!
….. Met’ Police …..

QUESTION …. ??!??

what they … say to you …
make them … give you …

CONCRETE PROOF … !!!!!

Sift through lies …
to find … THE TRUTH …

Don’t buy into …
Lies they … SELL … !!!

Calm yourself …..
Take in …. ” GOOD SMELLS “…. !!!

and Remember … this poem …

Called ……

” Well Well Well “…….

“The Test of Stress” … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/8/2009

A suitable piece to follow the below post, fa sure !

However, it does seems to me that people, right now, are on some, SERIOUS BULLPISH !!!

….and seem to enjoy, stressing their bullchit views, as if you should abandon, good sense, for the Fukry’ them coming with … ?!!!?

It’s just getting harder and HARDER, to deal with people, especially when you’re being REAl, while they’re seemingly, caught in up with Alice in …

” F’kd Up Fallacy-Land ”

Damnnnnn ……

These days I must … ” Confess ” …

It’s hard to deal with … STRESS … !!!!!
cos’ Many … try to … ” Test ” …
because they lack … ” Good Sense ” … !!!

Like … Knowing when …
They … Shouldn’t Speak … !!!

because ………..
……………………….

My Silence … means …

that i’m …
counting …………
to …… THREE …… !!!

Instead of … Reaching …
for a …. ” Piece ” …. !!!!
That signifies … THAT …….

I want to … SEE … !!!
You lying … FLAT … !!!
Unable to … “breathe” … !!!!!

A Test that’s … REAL … !!!!!

So …..
How would … YOU FEEL … ?!?
if you were … TOLD … !!!
to … ” Go Back Home ” … !!!

….. when ….. ?!?

Your … “Home” … is a place …
where your ….. ” Black Face ” …..
is taken for a … ” THREAT ” …
EVERY … single day … !?! …

or taken for a … ” Joke ” …
as mine was … ” Today ” …

Would you … ” Play It Cool ” … ?
Like The … ” Uncle Toms’ ” … Do … !?!

Or …
Would you … Choose … ?
to … ” Take Abuse ” … !?!?!
from some white … ” FOOL ” … !!!
whose moves are … CRUDE … !!!

Like … ” Selling Coke ” …
to … ” Mis-Guided ” … Youth … !!!

The type of … ” White Bloke ”
who thinks he’s … ” Smooth ” …

I know a … ” Few Brothers ”
who showed this … SUCKER … !!!
what it is … to be … STRESSED … !!!!!
and … Face the … TEST …
of being …. ” DISTRESSED ” …. !!!!! ….

He Didn’t … ” Fare Well ” … !!!
Like … ” Many ” … Nowadays … !!!

cos’ … Stress Now … SWELLS … !!!
in … ” Different Ways ” …

From … Violent Crime … !!!
to … Financial Plights …
That leave … ” Wise Guys ” …

” Feeling ” ……
NOT SO WISE … !!!!!
when investments made …

Don’t Make … ” The Grade ” … !!!

That’s a test … THEY FAILED … !!!!
Like The …… ” Holy Grail ” ….. !!!!!!!

because … ONLY … ” Wise Heads ” …
in the end … ” PREVAIL ” … !!!!!

All that … GLITTERS …
May mean … ” JAIL ” … !!!!!

“Gary” …. NOW KNOWS … !!!
that … ” Going Gold ” …
Doesn’t … Save Your Soul …
or … Provide … ” Bail ” … !!!!

Too Many … ” Young Blacks ” …
KNOW … How that goes … !!! …

DNA Tests … !!!
are causing … STRESS … !!!!!!!!
and giving … ” Some Heads ” …

Quite A … ” COMPLEX ” … !!!!!!

“It’s for defence !!!”

is what is … ” Said ”
just like … The Wars …
on … ” Foreign Shores ” … ?!?

“Some peeps” … Still Believe … !?!
that ….. Soldiers fought ……
for …. ” Freedom of Speech ” …. ?!?

“Freedoms” … ORDAINED … !!!!!
for peeps’ … like … ” ME ” … !?!

To Feed … young brains …
with …. ” Poetry ” ….
that speaks about ….

….. ” REALITY ” …..

Well … Reality Tests …
Weak-hearted … men … !!!!!!

Like … The One … mentioned
In THIS … ” Poem ” … !!!!!!!!! …

“Him” … and … ” His Friends ”
are …. ALL …. ” Cokeheads ” …. !!!!!

“Freedom” … for them …
is something … ” Showered ”
in Chemical …… ” Powder ”

” Freedom ” … for me …
Ain’t So ….. Easy ….. !!!!!!

because my speech
Does … NOT … agree
with … ” Cokehead ” … sheep …
who … ” Crawl ” … and … creep … !!!
because they’re …. ” Weak ” …. !!!!!

They … try to … CHEAT … !!!
.…….. ” REALITY ” ………. ?!?!?

But …
” Cheaters ” … Never Pass …
They Fail … before they start … !!!

Stress has marked …
…. ” The Card ” ….
of those … CLAIMING …
… ” They’re Smart ” …

cos’ …
” Smart Mouths ” … Talk …
before their …. ” FALL ” …. !!!

REAL HARD … fa sure … !!!!!!!!!!

” So that’s why they snort !?!?!? ”

So that … ” Their Nose ” …
Doesn’t feel … ” The Blow ” … !!!!!
when they … ” Fall Short ” …
of …. ” Standing Tall ” …..

Standing up to … ” The Test ” …
of … Dealing with … STRESS …

These days … it’s … TOUGH
cos things are …. ” ROUGH ” ….

So ….
What do you … ” Use ” … ?
to get you … ” Through ” … ?!?

Well … Some Resort …
as I said … Before …
to having a … SNORT … !!!
behind … ” Toilet Doors ” …
To Ease … Their Cause … ?!? …

Others’ … choose to …
” HURL ” … ABUSE … !!!

because … ” Their Views ” …
Leave them … ” Confused ” … ?!?

Of course …
There are … ” THOSE ” …
who resort to … BLOWS … !!!!!

which … just goes to show …
How … STRESS … Can lead You …
Down …… ” DARK ROADS ” ……

These days … I Write …
to … ” Ease ” … My Mind …
and … ” Ease ” … My Stress …
when I get …. ” TENSE ” …. !!!!!

because …
” Ignorant Heads ” ….
Breed …. ” VIOLENCE ” …. !!!!!!!

” Peace ” …
is … The Vibe …
with which … I Ride … !!!

But …

Let me just … STRESS … !!!
That … ” Self Defence ” …
is where my … ” calmness ” …
Meets it’s ….. END …… !!!!!!!!

You see …
It Wouldn’t … Be Wise … !!!
To … Make me … FIGHT … !!!

cos’ i’m a … ” Peaceful Guy ”
but when you … LOOK IN MY EYES …

You should …. ” REALISE ” ….
I’m NOT … ” Scared to DIE ” … !!!!!

You see …
STRESS … is a … ” Test ” …
That is …. ” Complex ” …..

and … Can be … HARD … !!!
for us all … to … PASS … !!!!!

In times like … ” These ”
We … NEED TO … Feed
our minds with … ” MORE ”
than … talk of … ” WAR ”
and … ” Crossing Swords ”

” Agree to Disagree ” … !!!

or just … ” DON’T SPEAK ” … !!!!!

Use Violence … LESS … !!!!!
and … Keep a … ” Cool Head ” …

and you’ll have a …

” STRONG DEFENCE ” … !!!

Against ….

” The Test of Stress ”

“What Do You See ?” … (The words) … A Poem written by Big Virge 7/3/2005

So … What do you see … ?
when … you look at yourself … ?

Do you see an … ” Image ” … ?
or a … ” Picture of Health ” … ?

or the …
” Fakest ” … of people
who’d rather see … ” Wealth ” … ?

Dunno bout’ … you … ?

but …
I see … A Brother …
who’s from a … ” Hard School ” … !!!

A school of … ” Hard Knocks ” …
Surrounded by ….. ” FOOLS ” ….. !!!!!!

Some … who’ve been drowned …
in this … ” Western Whirlpool ” … !!!!

See … it’s easy to blame
My Problems on … ” Colour ” …
but these days … I feel …
like … problems i’ve got …
come from sisters and brothers …
who live for … ” THEMSELVES ” …

REGARDLESS … of colour … !!!!!

But ….
DON’T … Get Me Wrong … !!!
being black … can be … TOUGH … !!!!!

cos’ …
white folks just … ” Use Us ” …
and place us … ” In Cuffs ” …

But ….
People are People … !!!

Some Blacks … do the stuff …
that leads me to … ” Thinking ” …

Some blacks …
You … CAN’T TRUST … !!!!!

” Ashes to Ashes ” …
or … ” Dust to Dust ” …
when I look at myself …
Sometimes … I just … CUSS … !!!

Why am I … in this form … ?!?
Why am I … not the norm … ?!?

and …
What’s with these … ” Racists ” … ???
who wish I …. ” Wasn’t Born ” …. ?!?!?

Is what you see … REAL … ???
or … do you … “conceal” …
The Truth … from yourself …

While you eat …
” Wagon Wheels ” … !?!?!

That line …
Was a … Joke … !!!

But …..
That verse … ” Provokes ” …

A …. ” REALITY CHECK ” …

for … ALL of you folks … !!!

This here … is a poem …
That’s Searching for … TRUTH …

So …
Are you … ” Pretentious ” … ?
or …. Are you just … YOU … ?

and ….

What does that mean … ?!?
Can you … DEFINE YOU … !?!

or …

Are you a … ” Victim ” … ?

Redundant of … PROOF …

that …
What you … ” Believe ” …
Confirms you as … TRUE … !!!!!

TRUE … in your actions
TRUE … in your thoughts
TRUE … in the luxuries

that you have … sought … ???

See …
These are the questions
” WE ALL ” … have to face … !!!

But … do you face them … ?
in the … ” Cold Light of Day ” … ?

Or …
Do you see them … ?
But Still …….. “shy away” …

Then … jump on a train …
for a … ” Quick ” … away day …

But ….
That’s NOT … The Ticket … !!!

These are … ” Poetic Lines ” …
with … No Need to … ” Picket ” … !!!

It’s … PAINFUL … I know …
to … ” Spiritually ” … go …
to the … ” Depth of ” …

….. ” Your Psyche ” …..

Without some … ” New Nikes ” … !!!

Are you laughing … ” Politely … ?
or maybe … you might be … ?

Listening …….. silently ……………….

cos’ that line … just might be … ?
PIERCING …. ” Your Psyche ” ….

You …
Don’t … have to like me …
I’m … ” Used to that now ” …

But … Liking Yourself …
is … ” What I’m About ” … !!!

cos’ …
If you like … YOU … !!!

You’ll like … ” Others Too ” … !!!
and this will ….. ” Pass on ” ………..
to those who have … ” Youth ” …

cos’ they …
NEED … ” THE TRUTH ” …
to make the right moves …
and then … ” Our Society ” …
Might just …. IMPROVE …. !!!!

A poem … like this …
can cover … So Much …

Not just ….
” Such and Such ” …

But …
” Deep-Rooted ” … FEARS … !!!
We … ALL … Need To Touch … !!!

Like ….

What’s … REALLY … in you ?
What’s … REALLY … in me ?

How … doing these things …
can … set our minds … FREE … !!!

FREE of …….. Constraints ….
That … ” Control ” … how we be …

FREE … to create …
A world … ” Full of Peace ” …

” Freedom ” … to greet …
EVERYBODY … we meet …
from … London to Paris …
to … ” Sesame Street ” …

Now …
This … ” Final Verse ” …
Should … make this … COMPLETE … !!!

Be … TRUE TO YOURSELF … !!!
Be … REAL WITH YOURSELF … !!!

ACCEPT …. in yourself ….
The cards … You Have Dealt … !!!

and when you’ve done this …
Take a … ” Look at Yourself ” …

and …
If you feel … FREE … !!!

Have a … ” Smile to Yourself ” … !!!!!

” Stretch Out ” …
Like A …. TREE …. !!!

Be … Who You Be …
for …. ETERNITY …. !!!!!!

and this …
I am … Hoping … ???
will make you … HAPPY … !!!

Then … REMEMBER ME … !!!

The Brother … BIG V …
and … REMEMBER … This Piece …

Called ……

” What Do You See ? ”
