Here I am

Just a young man

Never looked in a mirror

Never knew who I really was.

I would walk down the streets

Get to see some people

Try shaking hands

But no touch felt

But something was strange

Most faces I saw

Not all that different

Same color

Same race

Same attitude.

I fly through walls

Into the outskirts

I see people

Different people

With different color

Different race

Different attitude

Some working hard

Some giving up

Some getting whipped

It was all

Too much for my eyes

Enough to send me flying

To the state of Tennessee

Where I see a man

A man giving a speech

With people gathered

Some inspired

Some disgusted

Some who are both inspired and disgusted

The man giving the speech

Seemed to have been

Repeating two words

At the beginning of a sentence

The man looked interesting

I followed him

Followed him a whole five years

Till he was struck

By a stranger

With a gun

He bled

Bled till his death

Put in a coffin

Buried

And

Rested

In

Peace

Like

Me.
