Erase The Noose

Niggas on the loose
All they really need is a sense that 
the noose is loose
Grasping life as a nigga aint so 
much easy
Get killed ova a dolla
And you hollering why father?
It’s hard in the man’s world
But don’t use excuses as a twirl
Slave mentality got a nigga loosin 
Stay strong black brotha
Stay strong black sista 
For our time is here to realize
That niggas are the main attraction 
To the white man’s nun-satisfaction

    Thank you for your insight, I just normally choose a category not caring because most of my poems are free-versed I just like posting my thoughts and yes it is a deep meaning thanks though

    Shakira, Please don't get offended by my critique. I don't see any evidence of the form 'personification'. I would consider this more of a 'free verse', nonetheless, it is a powerful poem, although I am not really comfortable with the repeated 'N-Word'. Maybe I am just too 'white' to understand the deeper meaning. My comments are completely subjective and are not meant to demean your work. I just think this one went a little 'over my head'. Keep writing and congrats on having your work featured by Poetry Soup this week..........S.Ronthorpe
