Poem : " People like Me "

"People like me?"

Of course, there must also be

People like me.

Because after all you have done

What could you possibly expect?

For as long as there are people

Like you

I can guarantee you there will

Certainly always be

people like me!

*

What do you really think makes?

Us so different.

Or what do you think make

Us even alike

Life belongs to all that’s

Living

But look at the separation

The confusion and the fight

*

The song you are singing.

Some tunes of wealth,

Some tunes of color

Some of disease and sickness

Some of war, rumors of wars

Some paying fortunes

To stay Youthful enjoy maximum

Health.

*

Since this race that you have

Started,

Chasing the almighty dollar.

Been for the longest now

Backing up

Because you have realized that

Water’s suddenly more than flour,

No one wants to take responsibility

Terrible fall,

Again greed has you stuck,

With your back against

The wall.

*

Always the same when push

Comes to shove,

Acting all evil, then looking for help

From above.

That's what has you again in this

Same familiar spot.

Never learned from your

Mistakes, Alzheimer’s turning to

Amnesia,

You forgot, it just quickly came

Upon you

Had no time to see, so instead

You got caught where you are

Not really supposed

To be!

*

That’s pretty fortunate, to have

So many of the great ones

We knew.

They came pass this same way.

Leaving us multitudes to choose

So many possibilities, that we could

Afford to try a different one

Each day

So what people do you think?

Am I speaking about?

Those same ones like me who

Were wise enough took a

Good look

At all those who was bent on going

Out to the front

I saw their fate and what befell them.

*

Wisely I saw clearly enough,

To have taken another route.

Here again meeting you in your

Glorious human splendor,

This is your chosen rendition

Of truth.

Maybe for you there is a way.

But then also, there is, this way!

To me it’s easier here

with your type of example

Making it quite a simple process.

Equality and justice

For all including those who took

This route?

Bring me your tired and

Wary,

Need I say more?

*

Obviously you were some how

factored in

Your ancestors were the first in line

When those ships dropped anchor

As they were Tired , wary hungry

Regardless, they saw a new beginning.

I formulated all this, in my equation.

Like on queue but usually late.

Still what governs is better

Late than never!

And here you come!

It's all good, it is what it is!

If you knew of me long before

This meeting

You must have known where

this whole thing was going.

Why had you not intercepted

Before now?

I do hope you came to help rebuild

Now that you see the horrible spill

And not just bare witness

That this fire did really start to burn.

Before this meeting.

*

You had a great opportunity

To intercept to make better.

But of course that's not usually the objective!

Especially when it keeps coming up

It’s automatic to go after him.

Not to see him, meet him, but after him.

If that's not the ultimate thrill of the

Chase the destruction plan

You can’t even see what could be

In it for

"People like me?"

Thank you Dear "AE" There are so many ways to any a given place , but there is only one way to get to life . and that gift regardless of how anyone tries to slice it , still it come through one source. Though it would not surprise me if somewhere in safe storage somewhere there are millions of readily available work force waiting to be born.

But there will always be people like you and I even when they are trained in obedience and loyalty.

I can go on forever with subjects like these , but I will stay with the children and the beautiful great mothers ,like yourself.

Bless.

This is a great read Sky, you lay it out so well. Some accomplish amazing feats, some are just followers. Greed has taken over the world. The people are no longer first in the mind's of our leaders. There should be no division between the races. We are all one, some with different skin color, some with a differend dialect. In other words, no man is above the other...Peace

Thank you sincerely Caroline . Yes and there won't be all this chaos and resentment.The thing is mankind actually knows that he is in trouble but it is so massive , he will have to take back quite a bit of the things he have given , without the genuine reasons things are supposed to be given with.

Especially Love and sincerity.

Bless..

Sky this is a great poem. I love the photos you use too. If you take away everything from a man we are all the same united. Amazing work.

Thank you, and sincerely so my brethren frank . As those those cross my mind just like I told you before , there is something in there that will remind me of the thought. It's like banking your money for the interest later.

So I thank you for you very encouraging comments which also

does greatly assisting me thereof.

Bless.
