Poetry · Pride

Beside the Hype


They thirsty
Seeking the wishing well
Wasting their money
They hungry
Searching for the fruit
Where they know they won’t find any
Ya foolin’ yo self young one
They say
What happened to when you had dreams
Before you were just a Nigga
That’s what they told you
Branded you as something not worth a second look
What happend to pride
What I chase
Nothing but dreams according to you
But that’s ok
While you just dream about it
I’ll make it happen for the both of us
