Featured Poem of the Week: “Empowerment” by Jazzy Sdlihc

1 Apr

black power

Empowerment, takes you a level higher

we all have imperfections, convictions,what’s your priors?

the death of insecurity, I require

like murder for higher

 I choose to kill with words of fury

I’m on trial with myself as the judge and jury

my vision used to be blurry

but hindsight is 20/20, basic like ABC, the learning network on Jazzy Tv

broadcasting frequencies frequently

Stay tuned for this segment called stop dissing

take the dis out of that

give discourage back, to it’s owner

negative is a loner

positive, encourage

let your goals flourish

The cycle of doubt is vicious

anti spy ware needed, malicious

the lack of confidence is fictitious

look at where you’re getting your information

close your eyes and ears to ideas

that cause complications

Opinions are just that, an opinion

where someone opened their mouth

and spoke what they wanted to be true

don’t let them think for you and guide your decisions too

They reside in Whoville

saying, who me?

so ask them, who real

because they still

lost without a cause, a play without the pause

perfect with all the flaws

a coward without the balls

strengthen your walls

If the walls could speak, what would they say

you don’t play, stop acting that way

or where does your backbone lay

you already have the mind, body, and soul

put your pieces in place

and take back control!
