Ten toes down of my life

Tue, 01/17/2017 - 14:28 -- 7219015

It all started when I was nine years old

daddy saw a body instead of his little girl 

he jumped right on it and didn't realize that was my first moment of being traumatized 

now mamma wanna ask what we did for holidays 

tried to forget that night but I forgot everything

10 toes down and I still made it

me and mykreen got taken in that instant

he been dragged around don't know no different

but I been one place and it feel like a million

my soul is good but my heart is broken 

I found my place but then again it's stolen

im surrounded by all this poverty and all trump gotta say is all these niggas

he send us back all their is is nothing

but ya know how he think white say jump nigga say how high 

sorry not sorry but I got all these feelings all different

im a mad nigga ain't that what you call you , you always dream of your happy ending but all their is is a ending 

I'm glad I made it to 16 cause most niggas don't make 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
