The Dos And Don'Ts To Me - Poem by Freewill Amon

Don't mock me of my skin colour
Because it is not a curse
Don't mock me of my gender
Even that is the worst.

Question the things I say
When I talk with the president
Question the things I crave
In my place of residence.

Don't mock me of my stature
Because I know I'm looking good
Don't mock me for loving my neighbour
Because I'm only doing what I a neighbour should.

Never question my childhood
Because it was freaking perfect
CFS has changed my life
So don't question my intellect.

Don't mock me for so much hardwork
Because there is always a kid to feed
Don't mock me for avid study of God's word
Because I really want to be free.

Blame me for following my heart
Because it has brought me failure
You mock me for my tribal marks,
But what do you know about my culture?

Blame me for what I do with my life
But also try and dig my style
Show disapproval when I hurt my wife
But praise me when I treat her right.
