From Anything

 

Conversations about God and love
And how I don’t have any of the above
Daydreams about money and all the stuff
Been suffering since I was thirteen
I’ve had enough
Tired of being ignored and overlooked
The best poet around the last time I looked
Just look at all the poems I’ve cooked
Fifteen hundred just waiting to be booked
Tired of being seen as just another black
Tired of always hold the truth back
Tired of sugarcoating the facts
Tired of how all these white people act
Thinking about girls I’ll never have
Drinking to the ones I had
Making all these feminists and racists mad
I can’t remember the last time I could say I was glad
