i am not a poet

i never claimed to be a poet
i write strictly for therapy
because god knows
if i kept some of these feelings inside
i would lose my sanity
so, I write
a lot
mostly about life and love
lately, just life
because there’s too many people suffering around the world
to write about loving some shit
okay, maybe i’m overreacting
maybe I’m just overwhelmed by all the corruption
not love
oppression
not love
death
not love

a girl asked me
if color is only skin deep
how deep does hate go
aren’t we all god’s children
perplexed, i responded
“that’s real”
yet people remain condemned
based on ideologies, body parts and melanin

but, I am not a poet
i write strictly for therapy
mostly about life and love
lately, just life
a just life
where love is not just a word lost in suffering

    It doesn’t hurt to make them the best you can…
