Roots

Written by: Tadon Archer

Roots
Roots a five letter word that start underneath a tree
With seeds planted for many generations to grow
Some spread across the world to fulfill many of their dreams
Coming out their mother's wound opening their eyes
And seeing a world full of freedom
So many die crushing their dreams and leaving them underneath the dirt
Roots is a five letter word that forms the genetic form of me
Spreading my DNA of many backgrounds
Seeing a black man in the cloud hollering peace
While the other man shot him crying and praying for better days
Hoping to be able to spread my roots and seek the dreams that holds my
dignity
Black power, I scream with pride
Seeing vision of me becoming a political leader
Leading my people into the right path
Changing the world to make it a better place
Spreading the roots of goodness to save the people from the evilness
Roots a five letter word that express love bringing everybody together
As one nation under God praying
And showing love to one another
Instead of killing each other
Roots a five letter word that can save or deliver you
From anger that you have inside
Instead of taking out your problems on someone else
Why won’t you just talk to that person about your problems?
Maybe he or she could help
Roots a living thing that grows in your mother wound
Giving birth to another seed that can explore the world
