Jamaica Gleaner / Equality
All men are equal,
But what is the quality of our equality?
An ongoing sequel,
Of cruel comparisons causing calamity.
We replaced the kinks in our head,
With kinks in our brains of dread,
Corrupting our thoughts to what society said;
‘Til finally we are dead.
Social stratification starts from procreation,
Even in schools we have ‘traditional’ interpretations,
Where do we go to fix our relations?
To the place where humanity matters no faces.
For se all will come last when we speak of races.
I regret what this has developed into
You said to trust you but my mind says differently
A smile to love, a hug to melt
You were surely my best friend. way back then
Many things have occurred during our tenure together
Many laughs, many tears, many hurts and many pains
On my side it was and still is a stain.
I’ve washed my heart so many times,
but this stain just seems to be as stubborn as the new person I have become.
No longer do I smile as much
No longer do I love as much
This world has become a cycle of disappointment and grief.
Why did it have to be so
At first I could hardly say no
Now, ha, the face rejects before the heart is given a chance.
I hate how it has to become, neither do I see a positive outcome.
Save me Lord, save me
I need to love again.
The C card
is a sad one
in what ever way you interpret it
once a red flag always a red flag
those kind of results
are not positive
sometimes you felt you have been dealt
with a whole pack of jokers
and the jokes are no longer funny
in first aid
you have to make the decision
after careful evaluation
if it hurts to save and you could lose your life
and the one you are trying to save
you must call for help
two heads better than one
you have to give up
those childhood valleys
in one “whoosh” you became 3 to 6 again
and it was not a happy happy feeling …
Who will I trust
Woe unto me, what will I do now?
There is nothing any where to eat
There are thirsty men out there waiting for my blood
They devise mischief upon their beds
Do not trust not even your friend
Not even your mother instead
Lift your heads and look to the Lord
Get out of the darkness into the light
Sing praises because that works faster
Sing Halleluiah, sing Halleluiah
Trust God only my friend
