Colored Man

My Body is literally Scared Up
My Heart Is Torn
My Mind Screwed Up
I'm Sick To My Stomach but I Can't Throw Up
Unsatisfied by my performance in Life
Dreaming about A Rope To End a Life
Feeling Unloved from the ones that Raised Me 
Tears at Night Soaks Down To the Bed Springs
Look Up to My Big Brother he is living a successful life
Look at myself my Heart is dying to live right
Grew up in the slums Been Called Stupid and Dumb
Soon Got The Diploma So Half The Battle is Won
My Eyes are Open Wide To see more Tears and Lies
Colored Crack and Dope fiends These are The Days Of Our Lives
Mr. Colored Man Dare To Be Different
Its Time for a Change Say Mr. President
A Colored Man Full of Emotion but Not Easily Broken, but can be Broken by a Woman Who say She loves Him Then Turns To another Man and Gives Her Love to Him
Trough The Shakes, Turbulence, and Aftershocks Still I Stand A Colored Man..

    Kudos for the sincerity in this one. You could so easily have given us the old rah rah speech but instead you wrote an honest essay straight from your soul. I am duly impressed my friend... my heart goes out to you! Very good wishes, Jack

    Powerful and well written emotive filled poem. We can always rise above our circumstances-- we just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other heading in the right direction-- remembering that God has created each one of us for a unique and special purpose.
