Listening Ear

 

 

 

Can I hear one?

 

A real one for just once.

 

A poem about our children,

 

and why they need healing from their parents decisions.

 

A poem about why life has to cut you and dealing with inevitable incisions.

 

A guide for a better life without ever touching prison.

 

A poem that keeps the innocence alive of those missing.

 

A poem that explains why the face of blackness, is hard to interact with,

 

so they rather kill them.

 

A poem about the emancipation,

 

of a poverty stricken generation, and the instillation of wisdom.

 

A poem about opening up during the lusting phase without "playing victim". 

 

A poem that explains how trusting these days,

 

is similar to befriending a snake filled with venom.

 

A poem about survival tactics, feasting upon distractions,

 

and releasing habitual habits.

 

A poem that reaches the ears in the sky.

 

A poem that hears children when they cry.

 

A poem explaining how I gave them my all and in return I didn't receive none.

 

A poem that insights when one life has transitioned, a new life has just begun.

 

A poem that gives me life, 

 

I just want to hear one.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
