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
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
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
Since this race that you have
Chasing the almighty dollar.
Been for the longest now
Because you have realized that
Water’s suddenly more than flour,
No one wants to take responsibility
Again greed has you stuck,
With your back against
Always the same when push
Comes to shove,
Acting all evil, then looking for help
That's what has you again in this
Same familiar spot.
Never learned from your
Mistakes, Alzheimer’s turning to
You forgot, it just quickly came
Had no time to see, so instead
You got caught where you are
Not really supposed
That’s pretty fortunate, to have
So many of the great ones
They came pass this same way.
Leaving us multitudes to choose
So many possibilities, that we could
Afford to try a different one
So what people do you think?
Am I speaking about?
Those same ones like me who
Were wise enough took a
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
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
Bring me your tired and
Need I say more?
Obviously you were some how
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
You must have known where
this whole thing was going.
Why had you not intercepted
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?"
