these are the days that make us
filled with anxiety
& fabricated reasons as to why we can't grow
older and better
wiser and stronger
these are the days that drive me to get up
no later than 5:30
to squeeze the life out of the quiet of the morning
& force my truth to appear
freedom lives where they don't want us
closest to ourselves
Greater than they said we would be.
for every one of us they take
& every tear that's shed
silently equates to yet another,
mind – set free
I ran away years ago and i'm still runnin
so my son won't have to.
and further so we can free others
to then in turn, free us all.
RIP Young Dolph
