Hey you, white person
How are you doing today?

It’s been very long since we last spoke
I don’t know if you remember what happened the last time we spoke
But I do!
I am quite unforgettable, you see!

That was the day something woke me up
From the deep slumber I was in, for years!
And for just that moment,
I asked myself what my life could be or could have been away from you?!
You said the future looks bright;
I say it had never looked any freer than it was, then!
I don’t know if I am free, as we speak…
Did you actually get the message I last sent you?
If you didn’t, I’ll relay it here!
I won’t ever bargain with you, for my life and freedom
I will take it all back, forcefully
I asked nicely for a very long time and you took me for a fool!
I decided to take these matters of life and death
Into my own hands; learning from you and about you as much as I could
So that when the day comes, I am super ready for you!
And this is where we are, right now
That goes without say that I can’t tell you where I am right now
I wouldn’t you to easily put a target on my back.
All I can say to you, white person
Is that I’m watching you very closely
Than ever before!
I clearly see all your tricks
Your silky smooth words that are wrapped in gauze and honey
Your two faces on your head; just like a coin
And your charity that looks like charity but isn’t exactly charity!!!
Hey you, white person,
I see it all

A piece of advice from me to you;
Do better than you did yesterday
Unlearn everything you’ve always known
Question much more than you take in
Listen more than you talk or would want to
Help me only if I ask you to help me….
Bye for now
Let’s meet out on the streets later
I got something I want you to see!
