At The table of Life

At The table of Life

A Poem by M. View

At the table of life

 

Open my mouth and then the words move

Then it began to do some thing like sooth

I guess the sound calmed the savage beast

Cause as I sit at the table of life’s feast

I taste the salt of the Atlantic sea

And felt the whip of the bull on me

Lost my voice as I swing from the maples

Tried to heal the wounds with temporary staples

That would disappear and wound would reopen

So I take a hit of nature and feel me body flouting

While hearing the voice of older people saying “get your self together”

“We told you before that where will be sun and cloudy weather”

Falling to my knees feeling the sun on my skin

Thinking to my self when will this pain ever end?

Drowning in the lake of my own fear

Criticized cause I’m darker then my piers

Feeling my skin being licked to see if it’s salty

That’s help retain water so less feed for the passage

Until this day they have people brain wash that I’m nothing but savage

Cause of that salty disposition I’m condemned to have high blood pressure

Cause they feed me scraps s**t that they don't want because they got me believing I’m lesser

Less then half a man three quarts of an animal they believed

But we founded higher education when they where still on there hands and knees

Confine in caves many are still today

"I’m superior to you" is what there enter voice must say

Why do they believe it and how do they keep it true?

They educate only 5% of the population and the rest is me and you.
