PAD Challenge Day 10: How Do WE Fight
PAD Challenge Day 10: Write a how (blank) poem.
How Do WE Fight
“Just as hate knows love’s the cure. You rest your mind assure”.
If love has a cure,
why are we still fighting hatred and corruption?
Did we miss out on it?
Did it come as a pill that’s hard to swallow?
Are we too short by a day or a dolla?
Did it come as a patch that itch?
Maybe a small pack of syringes—not enuff for
everybody to get a little prick?
‘Cause so many are
sick with this shit.
More are sick and tired of fighting this shit.
So, how do WE fight them?
Beat them black and blue until they have life no ‘mo
‘cause from the size of humanity
Love is almost at zero.
Peace is almost always a no show.
They are barely here.
They are barely there.
They barely even care.
They are barely even clear.
Not just for me
Fo’ you and yours too!
Yo’ kin, neighbors, and friends!
All colors, shapes, sizes, and ages
of men, women, and children!
Hared and corruption is uproar!
Going viral like a
plague on TOUR
Raising...selling pure hell
Burning lands from Nation to Nation
Bribing minds and souls from stations to Stations
Poisoning feeds of all feeds
Stealing every want over needs
It is going DOWN… Down… down
Your block my block
From the chambers of hearts to
the chambers of commerce
to the chambers of smoking guns.
So, how do we fight
UP. Up. up
After our bodies go weak
After our souls are no longer meek
And our voices are slow to speak
How do we fight to keep
love peace and humanity
