Tired of writing about the same ole thing
forced to sound indignant
because that is what’s required of me,
I’m black so much isn’t expected
and i’m really tired of being rejected,
so each day I stifle under paper
mounds of words that all sound the same,
It’s so easy,
to remain in ones comfort zone
yet another story of poor victimised racially suppressed people
so that another stereotype can be added to my list of flaws.
What’s the significance of writing shit that you don’t believe
because you’re afraid to be brilliant and exceptional
afraid to put out your best work.
that’s what makes my heart bleed.
So why be great?
There is always ordinary to compete with.
