Young Black Man - Poem by Obinna Nwerem

I am a young black man
Confused and trapped in a whiteman's world
Day and night I shed lonely tears
Contemplating my life through the years

The politicians and Government officials
Never cared about young black men
They got me secluded on the corner
All I see is rot and corruption

There can not be better days
All of my dreams come to fruition
Because I am a young black man
They got me trapped revealing my primitive side

I am a young black poet
My words are never misunderstood
But always over looked
I am a strong young black man
