Black Out - Poem by Rodney Finley
Twist and turns make up a mind
Of one that is completely simple and kind.
Now it’s sorry to say but harder to see
How he was convicted to be a hard g.
Put here to achieve his destiny
Instead it was decided that he please you and me.
A complied past that’s sneakier than
A child trying to hide a guilty hand.
A future is as bleak as the night fog
Intentions are to clear to see at all.
Turn on by those most trusted
Put down by those who his spark combusted.
Cautiously walking into his new fear
Touching heights that are not normally there.
Facing people who he would lend an ear
When there was nobody around that would care.
Consumed by shadows until the end of time
Hidden away from people like a covered mine.
Belittled by every one that did not know
That he was mastermind and chose not to show.
Fiercest player in his own city
Makes anybody pay that pity
Shots taken without a focused
Threats are treated like flocks of locus.
No emotion around that you can depict
Thirsty for love like dying tick.
Serious about the game that he chose
All about wining and paying his dues.
Controlled by the elements of life
Living for stress less after life.
Respect thrown around freely untamed
Tried by many that falls in the same.
Intangible pieces of a dream that seem
Sowed together like loose fabric by its seems.
Fighting a endless battle for self control
His heart becomes dark as a lump of coal.
In the end it is easy to see
The difference between you and me.
When all is said and done
Your question is still who is he?
