THINK

Hey Sugar stars,

For those of you who don’t know, I also write poems . I want to raise awareness about some of the issues in our society through some poems I have composed myself.

STEREOTYPE

Lights, camera, action.

Your Mother felt contraction,

The day she gave birth to a fraction of her kids.

You was caged up like a hen.

You was never a distraction.

The day they opened the cage you started walking with rage, even made me feel fazed.

You started earning your wages in a very wrong way.

One day you started stacking, then you got caught unpacking,

By the cops on the block.

I told you to stop but you never listened.

Look at your consequences.

Now you’re in prison.

REALITY OF THE INNOCENT

We all comes in  different colour, shades and tones,

But  when has it come down to a mother’s moan,

When her son is left to die on the streets.

By the people who are meant to protect us.

Since when has the colour of your skin become a criminal offense?

 

A system of defence?

Who are you defending?

Yourself or me?

The last time I remember you made a pledge to defend the citizens of your country.

Why are you fighting them like barbaric animals?

He could have saved your life, he could have been your future doctor.

Now you have his blood  on your hands.

 

Since when has the colour of your skin become a criminal offense?

 Practice peace not war.

I will rise , you will rise . We are all superstars.

Love
