My Life Is Such A Blur - Poem by Grayson Givens

Reality is so cold and unjust
to a black male
So i keep my style simple
the world has mind up their mind
for us black male
we are either suppose to be dead or locked up
If real lucky we can abandon our kids
This is what everybody see's in a black male
Just speaking with my heart
So i keep writing staying in the darkness
so i can build me up
shaking pacing racing
in my corner
asking God when can i get my turn to run
I been jogging so far
wondering when is God
going to throw me in the Area
and play with the big boys
play hard ball
I really don't know
but again ima in my dark cold corner
dreaming slowly lossing myself
stepping out of myself
and wondering where can i find more words and verbs?
Darkness is my domain
the light is to bright for I
i am shelter by pain and sorrow darkness
I want to keep going
because i know once it comes
i am going to slow dreamics
to the simple fame
Darkness is where i am now?
because i was sleep writing this
