My Mind

by Poet Sheba

Look into my eyes and see the darkness that rages inside
I tried to ignore the pull but I cannot hide
My third eye sees the horrors of the police violating our youth
Ken and Barbie want to ignore me cause I speak the truth
I donít play with trees
My mind is deadlier than killer bees
Instead of lying 6 feet under
I rather lash out with my knowledge and make people wonder
This is my world and Iím coming out strong
Iím a strong sista who knows right from wrong
All my work deal with my ups and downs
Maybe I should travel to different towns
Ole Charlie, please step the hell away
Cause out here, some people think you need to pay
Brother King, if I was there when you got that beat down
We would have chased them right out of town
The great leaders of yesterday past would have been proud
For shouting ďLOOK, IM BLACKĒ out loud
