"Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning." Maya Angelou
I wonder what 2013 will bring…
will we be able to intervene
or will the world be as mean,
will unforeseen circumstances still be unseen,
or will we be able to convene, and have a better routine
on how to treat women like queens,
better yet human beings.
I wonder what the year 2013 will bring…
will women still be referred to as bitches as hoes,
and will they continue to accept the disrespect that’s enclosed,
by wearing no clothes cause it’s their body they want to expose.
I suppose…God only knows….
I wonder what’s to come in this New Year…
will we still have fear of tragedy’s so severe
that we can’t even go to school because the safety is unclear.
We try to act sincere but the heartache, it stills appears,
just go talk to those parents who continue to shed tears,
in the hopes, over the years, to not lose their son,
and what do you know, he was taken down by a gun.
Happiness has been silenced
due to all of America’s violence
the defiance of America’s finest….
I’m actually anxious to see 2013
where anyone will do anything to chase that green,
so if that means rap or sing,
then everyone is on the scene,
not trying to knock dreams,
but it is more out there than what is seen.
Reality television is taking over our youths mind,
being blind to the fact that it is dehumanizing our kind,
we were taught better than this,
and as I take this risk to write down what I think needs to be fixed,
I hope people are listening because these are my feelings,
I’m on the floor kneeling, praying to God for some healing,
because it is highly needed.
The level of ignorance has definitely exceeded.
And God Forbid that these kids continue to think it’s okay to have kids,
that its’ okay to be a thief, and to kill if there is beef,
idolizing Chief Keef,
so they smoke and drink.
We have to pray for the next generation,
we have to pray for their salvation
Because it’s more going on probation
then going to graduation,
and the frustration is hard to shake.
We need a break from all the headaches the world creates,
for Gods Sake.
But by all means, I’m sure we can build our worlds self-esteem,
What am I saying?
Even marriage is a scheme.
What should we expect in 2013.
