One Day You Will See


Lock stock and barrel
Nigh the cobblestone...
Small minds seek problems
Take the drama
Gone!
Nit picking...
My every action is probably wrong
According to the critics
I haven't asked to be coddled
So...
I don't really care
I see opinions as bottle notes
Drifting in the sea of the night
Lost souls seek shelter
Now
Can we be a light?
Unredeemed...
But I see there is freedom in Christ
I promise you I won't have trouble sleeping tonight
Stand strong even if you stand alone
Just the other day...
An abolitionist I knew for a minute
Pondered up the word
Real
What's it's true definition?
What's fame, cash and pride?
Just a few contradictions
Still opening the eyes of the youth who'll listen
To the truth...
And every activist are the proof!
I can surely see the changes they're envisioning too
Real people are survivors
Admiration is due
Giving glory to the Lord before they take it from you
They are vessels...
They are where I'm planning to be
Recognize
There is nothing that was handed to me
Focused on the positive
I took command of a dream
Try to make a dollar then lend a hand to my peeps
You'll see...
Now what's the definition of real?
Are you fake if you wasn't sent to prison or killed?
The struggle made us tough
Help our children to heal
Maybe if they hear enough we'll convince them to live
Orderly...
Thank God for the ones supporting me!
I'd probably end a poem right now normally
But...
Don't allow opinions to adumbrate your truth
A couple won't support me
But there's others that do
Since you know your story you have nothing to prove
Pay attention to the positive
The others will lose and be removed
Permanently from your life

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
