DATE WITH DEATH

From conception to birth
It is scientifically certain
That all who survive shall
Eventually die
We live/we strive/we die/
But my date with death
Has been molested at best
For it is not God’s will
But rather the will of hate
Hand-picked “people of the state”
Have biasly decided my fate…
Yes, it is true,
They wish to beat me
Out of my last breath,
They want to punish me
For the color of my skin.
But as sure as I am Black
My fate remains in God’s hands.
