Poetry Corner: Keep Your Head Up

Yea I was a loner until I played sports.

Only reason I joined because the support was brotherly.

My father wasn’t shit,

My family was no better,

I’m not trying to hear you can do better,

Y’all support I had no love.

Everything I have I got out the mud,

Nothing was given,

I was taught and learned hard work always overcomes.

I was stuck in the the hood,

A corrupt government inescapable system,

I had to let go of the thought that I was a victim of oppression.

I could’ve gave up on myself like my family,

But I chose I was worth construction not destruction.

It was the right side I chose (BLOOD),

Brotherly, Love, Overcomes, Oppression, & Destruction.
