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?
