TEAS AND COLD FEETS

 

 

Walking the earth scared of crossing the wrong boundaries

Terrified of saying something offending the majority

Drinking green tea for more energy

Feelin as my feet ask for warmer socks

World too cold

People not sold

Life slippin out of my control

Lookin up to the sky gods

pleading with the jury

“Give me back my inner peace”

Clouds slapping me in the face with an icy reality

 

As I witness guns become a speech priority

Kids courageously speaking up

Causing politicians to grow geese on their backs

Bump the news page to a new face

So, they liberate a celebrity to speak about the same societal states

Just as many who try to shout their art work to the world

Listen to the children

Listen to the Adults

Listen to the Elderly

Listen to the Poor

Listen to the voiceless speak in eyes that cannot stop sobbing

But, their expression only matters if a popular

car or dashian solicits the stain across their Instagram frame

Look at these kids,

They don’t get paid to say what they stand for

I said they DON’T GET PAID TO SAY WHAT THEY STAND FOR

 

But,

they can’t sleep until the chamomile steeps

Calming their hearts just to make it through another

Fancy faced sheep

Standing in front of cameras smiling telling the world it’s okay to day dream

“We have it covered”

Covered

Covered

Covered

 

It’s blues day, I mean, it’s Tuesday

And I can’t figure out if my tea is settling me

So, I take a sip of extra cream and sugary coffee

Askin my sky god

If there’s something I’m supposed to say

Show me

But, they keep silent

Askin me to stop gettin cold feet

Keep writing

Keep creating your 

Poetry.
