2020 Vision
5/1/2021

Is it me, or does it seem that times are hectic?

I search for brighter days, but me,

my life needs a daily inspection.

I wonder, are we killing the dream our king

died protecting?

The very things our generation neglects

our kids will reject. But how can we know what’s

inside if we don’t dissect?

I seek truth, but in truth there are no tangibles.

So, I’ve found myself grasping lies in a really distorted.

Buying into a life my soul can’t afford.

Speeding to destruction and sowing discord,

my void couldn’t be filled so I must change course.

No longer shall I assume but stand on facts.

I’m humble, I’m kind, I’m intelligent, I’m black!

I’m a man with flaws, to my character it gave substance.

I can never say life gave me nothing,

when in fact it made me something.

Now every night I pray, as I lay me down to sleep

that I quake every day in pursuit of discovering

a better me.
