Live This Way - Poem by Ivan Bolden

Now tell me why
Why?
Oh why? We gotta live this way?
You disgust me
You don’t even trust me
Why we gotta live this way?
You can’t control me
Influence and mold me
Why you gotta live that way?

Why am I trapped in this detention?
Overwhelmed by this suspicion
Fell into oblivion
And came out with my mind missin’
Left me only with your ignorant superstitions

Now tell me why?
Why?
Oh why? You gotta live that way?
