Time Wasted - Poem by kawambee thomas

Controversy has always been my story
From everyday living, leaving Islam converting into a Christian
I knew standing on my two feet would cause catastrophe and heat
Still I pushed aside my pride while holding in my cries
Stomaching these verbal beatings never understanding people’s reasoning’s
Questioning my decisions, while altering my living
Just to please everyone but me, this can’t be

Sacrifice is life, but compromising your soul in order to fill whole
I rather feel rejected, instead of people’s acceptances
Especially when no one’s changing their lifestyles
It’s funny as I watch these cowards smile
Embracing me with hugs, giving me love
Then, after I leave the scene
People’s telling everyone else, Kawambee’s a mess
All these deceptions leaving subliminal messages
And I’m lefted at a stand still
Come on keep it real

Speak your mind
Don’t let my decisions cause strife and division
Then you put it in your mind Kawambee’s changing
When in actuality you were too scared to face me

Now you tell me is this really our make up of chemistry
Or our we really that distant and ignorant
Stupid, dumb and blinded
Hatred turns into silence

As time begins to suddenly pass us
We grow old and weary feeling empty
Then after realizing there was no true reason
Our love ones is now a memory

Let’s glue together now and live forever
Why should we be dead in order to be respected?
Time is precious, why waste it
Cause when were at our last minute
No prayers is going to ever bring back those awaking moments
Face it!
