Exodus 3, Follow Me

to write?

to right the wrongs?

for the right of way?

today? Is that right?

to be Christened in Christ’s' rite?

right?

to fight for my rights

with civil writes?

maybe it's to fly like the Wrights

despite the respites

formatted outta smite to spite me

am I supposed to be the right

that rights the wrongs, by writing with authenticity ?

to electrify you with electricity

like that kite and key?

am I supposed to be waking up

every morning

to fight a feeling of forlorning?

 

Say, why do I breath?

no, I'm not asking biologically

no, I don't wanna know about 32-38 ATPs!

I mean: what in my life

is the bee's knees?

metaphorically speaking

what gives my life meaning?

I mean, waffles get me outta bed

but what inspires me to keep treading?

cause waffles is good

but waffles don't stop the shooting in the hood!

but maybe my words can...

 

Do I wake up to write?

cause I been told it's a Cole world

there's always a cold war

congress so bored, get nothing done

and it's scary

call them "American Borror Story"

Do I wake up to write

so I can change this?

that IS why I write!

cause that's where change is

 

I wake up to write to share the FIRE He hath put in my heart!

I wake up to write to give the next generation a better start!

I wake up to write to put that FIRE in your day!

I wake up to write to send new ideas your way!

I wake up to write, to open eyes!

I wake up to write to change lives!

I wake up to write because I am constantly envisioning a better today!

I wake up to write because today is the day that He hath made

I wake up to write that we might rejoice and be glad in it

I wake up to write because it is my passion

I wake up to write because there is no better way I can imagine

waking up to change society

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
