Today I write in verse
neither preaching or cursing.
But I thought I
should probably say this.
Kindly,even if in passing
take time and read this.
I come in peace.
I might not know you
but I know what you are going through.
Every night you plan on your next move:
how you’ll re brand to the next you.
And I agree with you.To be great you have to
plan your next move.
Am proud of you for the far you’ve
It’s worth the applause.
Worth the attention,
worth the fame ,
worth the dime ,
the feeling every time you stepped in the scene
and saw all their faces beaming
complimenting how appealing you
look in the outfit you saved up so much for.
Or probably not.
Worth every moment you tuned up and
enjoyed the thrill of causing a riot ,
of doing the unthinkable and making
a scene so obscene your mother would deny you,
of making out with a stranger in every club
and having quick sex while you are at it,
of poppin pills because your rap artist
did it and got ‘marvelously’ wasted
and because you are part of the cool kids
so … you follow it like religion??
Worth wasting all your school time,
buy clothes,shoes and bags with every dime
your parents give you to spend on books and upkeep while in tuition??
Do you even understand half the words you bite off
the songs that teach you how to disrespect your sisters and look
at every one of them as pigs??
teaches you how to sell your body in a lustful
thirst that hurts anyone that falls so foolishly prey to it???
that turns good girls into whores
because they have been constantly told they aren’t
what society deemed as proper women
if they still had their hymen
and a halo on their heads.
If they have no ass .
No pretty light skin.
and cannot give head at the back of your
father’s car that you stole for
a rave in Naivasha???
If it’s so cool,
tell the folks at home.
Shouldn’t they be your number one fans
before all the people on social media??
Family comes first,right?
So why you so low-key
if you are the realest hommie??
Maybe it’s time you planned your next move
and thought of your son or daughter
and the world they should live in
that you are busy destroying.
Pick up the pieces.
I come in peace.
