Matt Starking Poems

Why do you mock me
Why do you enjoy mocking me
For so long
Is it because I am black and young

freedom is a state of mind
and ones wealth, skin or country
cannot determine his freedom

My heritage is a rich tapestry
Of stories, cultures, and history
It's the land of my ancestors, who
Lived and loved and worked so hard

Africa, Africa
rise up Africa
Africa, Africa
stand up Africa

a thing called courage
it will only open a new page
if I did not cross the oceans
I would have been left alone

a City of sin
when will thou go clean
a foolish society
in an archaic city

time and patience work together
time is the seed
and patience is the water
which nourishes life

When I am dead and gone,
My name will still live on.
For I leave behind a legacy,
Of love, kindness, and bravery.

Success is a friend to
Those who persevere
He is free and very fair
He speaks but they don't hear

haters all over the north
haters all over the South
haters all over the east
haters all over the west

you are a prisoner
a prisoner of freedom
seeking for your freedom
however, in other

Amidst the chaos of my soul,
A vision takes hold.
A dream born from within,
A story waiting to unfold.

forgive and forget
and you will never regret
have you been cheated
so you are disappointed

I will rather rule my perceptions
Control my intuitions
Take responsibilities of my own actions
Than for you to rule my perceptions

Climbing mountains, pushing harder
Feeling the burn in my legs and my arms
The higher I go, the further I see
The beauty of nature surrounding me

the human race is falling
oh it is falling
too much lies
too much atrocities

freedom means a lot to me
what does freedom means to you
to me; freedom is equal opportunities
equal reward for all

Life is bitter
Very very bitter
It waves are stronger
Turning my life upside down

Be water
Brother be water
For if you put water in a cup
It takes the shape of the cup

The Best Poem Of Matt Starking

Mocking Birds

Why do you mock me
Why do you enjoy mocking me
For so long
Is it because I am black and young
Hard working and strong
For I see nothing wrong
Is that why you mock me
For how long
You tried to stop me from singing my song
All along
You took my voice
From being heard
You tried to define me
And said I was weird
You took away my daily bread
So that I will not be fed
You took my crown of my head
Is it hate behind the laughter
Or jealousy behind the friendship
Pretending to be a lover
Or a conspiracy over my leadership
For it is written all over
If I think of it over and over
I wonder why you mock me
Why do you enjoy mocking me
