Errands Poem Example

Open Letter to a Black Soul

My crime is on speaking a black cry
My words are on safety belt i hope
My poetic messages have no headings though i'm the head of my words
I'm in the dark with my mood as an arch
My words are built on salty tears mixed with a shovel of smiles and
A cement of pride 
on a convoy dish washing expression machine
The mechanism of my third eye
The arrangement of connected words in poetry

Cleaning dirty black connotations
I am in the dark in tears building thoughts of the most wanted President
Thoughts of a colorful soul leading lions that can fly
I 
Am 
the liquid attention
I am a black pen
I swim around facts drowning opinions
Your animal behavior should live far from constructions of words
The curtains of sharp eyes

Watch your words when you 
Watch your back
Watch those mute blacks in 
the back of your watch
Tick tick and talk in time of race
Watch before time wrestles to watch steps in your face
Your clock is a medical faith
Skins don't give away hypocrites as hampers
They pamper hearts with diapers while undressing snipers to shoot opinions
Not idiots
Time might run out on those who run errands in the name of skins

Sold-out black skins are tickets to oppression
The last page of our thoughts will blink memories of a good soul
Not all oppressors where oppressed
Some,
woke up on silver-spoons before silver was a moon and a spoon to feed our pockets

These letters aim to open letters in your mind
A color of a my thoughts in paper
A poem that carries a coffin and disappear before grave-hearts 
In our town as a ship around townships
In the hood young presidents are shipped high
Heaven is a second in the streets of Nyaope 
A land governed by hearts as vice presidents of life
In the streets of Nyaope, 
future-less boys finance their addiction

My letters are open to all souls in black scars
A scar left by hope using blades of jealousy
Escapism 
A scar tattooed on lips singing cry the beloved hatred
Words can steal words to steal attention

Don't kill my vibe type feeling
My crime is on speaking a black cry
My words are on safety belt i hope
I am the head of my headings
I am guilty for caring 
Above this dialogue 
lives letters open to children of discussion
Letters written in black tears
