WHAT A LIFE





From my Fathers’ seed to my Mothers’ womb
I was entomb
Destined...to unleash greatness upon this world
From the first day of sight…the light…in the night…shining so bright
Is the Star I am to be

Darkness is my skin…even greater I win…the struggle of equality
Pearl is my eyes…that makes me wise…to see human frailties
Sharp is the tongue that speaks to the young of an old mans’ mentality
Mind is as keen as a beam…piercing through the scene...of those trying to keep me down
Stick around

They say continue to grow…and then you will know…the trouble that Life can bring
Heartache and pain…then more of the same…Sunshine and much rainfall too
See me rise beyond the skies as those who hate me fall
YES I continue to stand…Tall…Strong…Black…Proud…Loved and True
And YOU

Watch me blaze across the sky with Gods wind beneath my wings
…Through it all
No matter what you haters may bring…still my song…I…SING

Wow…. what a life

Stephen,

We've both read your works and you are far too good to not have a book of poetry.
