Who's Awesome Here?

Are we awesome?

Nah, maybe were just ordindary

Many of my people locked away in solitary

Causing this huge diversionary

How can they call themselves honorary?

While speaking on Bland's death isn't in their vocabulary

Is getting murdred becoming customary

Or just me being Black makes it voluntary

Am I awsome?

Or is my acceptance momentarily

Forgert that-

What gives you the authority

To judge me...

But, I want to be extraordinary 

Im I able to achieve my dreams...

Or will my dreams stay imaginary 

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
