    Wadling in pain

    Seized by pity and overwhelmed with pain and trying very hard to be a good man
    Predestined to fail by the system at hand
    This world can not define me as a man
    Too much sin, poverty, and disease to knock the biggest, strongest, man to his knees.
    Lied to, cheated, abuse, and hurt, beaten, locked up, trying to eat without work.
    Ambition extracted from visions of hoop dreams
    Or tormenting our bodies on professional football teams
    Taught to use drugs instead of learning how to cope
    Emotionally sick, without resources of hope
    Raped by our parents of all creativity's
    Never suppose to look beyond what we see
    Raised by a standard to work twice as hard
    While watching their marriages all fall apart

    This was a good poem. It expresses the hole black men have to climb out of before the race for your dreams even starts. A lot of emotion is pack in your words.

    [Never suppose to look beyond what we see] - That's it. That's it right there. Blindfold left on too long and you start to think the darkness is the reality. Nice piece.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
