My Fate...

by Wazir El-Amin


My Fate...

How can I exist in chains, when my mind is stronger than the links that hold me down?

I am held down, but I still keep my head up. A test of my existence as a man. I "over-stand" this plan through didactic tactics.

Therefore, I am still a man. And I can wallow or swallow my fate. I can take these gates as a barrier or a bridge to knowledge, strength, and wisdom.

And when I am down, I will not give them control. Because in these confines, only God has my soul.

I trust you are out & finally free. As free as a black man can be in this sad excuse for a society.

I would love to see you without guards looking on. And hold you... I have missed you my friend.
