See What I See


See them still on the corner
hustling dope, smack, weed, heroin
see the feens still lined up
tryin to get at their medicine
see the young thugs all grown
put a hit out on the block
see the neighborhood turned out
smoked into thin air like crack rock
see my old homies dead and in jail
some are OG's lost in the game
see a few turned into feens
can't remember their own name
see the young girls blossomed
hair and nails done chasin the ballers
see the older sistas once my peers
now they on welfare pushin strollers
see me standing on the corner
where we once carried out black flags(bandanas)
see the untold hood stories
my fellow soljas carried away in black bags
see me think as far back as possible
to water fights and handball in the park
see out mothers prayin for their kids
that we make it home after dark
see I couldn't wait to come home
go back to my roots my pastime
see this experience showed me
things are worse but it wont be my last time

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
