I was very hesitant to upload this blog becuase this deals with racism. I am a black man and I know racism is something that exist and I wrote a poem to demonstrate that black people are always a step behind. My black followers that are reading this will definitely relate. To my white followers, this poem is to not make you feel uncomfortable at all I am just expressing the truth and I treat people according to their character , not becuase of their skin complexion. So I don’t want my white followers to be offended and believe it or not just like how some whites discriminate blacks, some blacks discriminate whites. I met black and white people that I couldn’t stand and I met white people and black people that I loved. If this poem makes anybody uncomfortable, I truly apologize.
Can I go at least a year of peace?
I need room to cross the sea.
Doing the breast strokes with style but can’t stay above water.
Blood thicker than water
but I can’t swim in blood neither.
Blood and water drowns me
realizing that they both run deep.
Didn’t realize that when I took a leap in.
Always belived black men can’t swim.
Jealous of all the white children
all together floating and swimming.
Black children and white children always a difference.
Black children born to a world with violence and ignorance
but yet no human is perfect
White children known as well to act ignorant and belligerent
but the public rarely witness.
Water is their friend but water is our enemy.
Hell sometimes blood is our enemy.
We can’t swim becuase we made to believe to be lazy,
but also sometimes it’s lack of confidence
that fuck with our conscious.
Another black kid unconscious and he is drowning.
Lifeguard on his chest pounding, inside his mouth breathing.
After 5 min we hear him coughing finally regained consciousness.
Now he fear the swimming pool now all of a sudden underconfident.
His strokes weren’t consisitent and he thought the pool was shallow.
Practice the strokes when the water was shallow
but the deep water gave him a battle more than he could handle.
White man ask him are you alright, but inside laughing at what the black man can’t handle.
Black mother throws a temper tantrum.
Making a scene thats so embarrassing screaming at lifeguard
Lifeguard apologizing to the mom but deep down he don’t give a f*ck
Black people in this world are shit out of luck
