I Live To See the View

I done been some places.

Yeah, I’ve even seen some things,

I’ve seen birds trying to fly, with broken wings.

I’ve seen many forget the HUMAN in “Human Being.”

I done seen the moon, reject the sun.

I’ve seen parents abandon & devour their young.

I’ve seen the battles one goes through when they don’t hold their tongues.

(((LoL!))) Baby! I done seen some things.

I’ve seen many jump in ignorance, hatred & violence,

Innocents perish from the blast.

I’ve seen many white-washing cultural atrocities-hiding the past.

Heck, I’ve even seen the homeless, giving others their last.

Shit! I’ve seen children turn against their Mothers, Brothers against Brothers, Our Women hating & warring with one another.

I’ve seen people go crazy for becoming lost lovers.

Uh-Uh-Uh! I tell you! I’ve seen some things.

I’ve seen the worst of things, turn out for the good, I’ve seen Love & Unity within the Hood.

I’ve seen many turn blind-eyes, to the systematic destruction,

hoping to be good slaved zombies, for the NWO’s Plantation.

I’ve seen what I can, I’ve seen what I wasn’t, I’ve seen the Universe within Self,

sharing the reflections.

I’ve seen the power of the gentle touch of a hand,

as lips mouth the words “I Love You”, the answer, sadly many do not understand…

I’ve done seen some things.

And throughout this life,

bundled joys

&

strife’s…

“I live to see the view.”
