Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
They try to get me to deny my people.
But just like Hughes, I love them.
Should I not associate myself with them because I'm college
I love them.
Should I not socialize with them because they are "ignorant"?
They always say, "Your above them".
"They'll do nothing, but bring you down".
"Why waste your time?
Are you trying to be down?"
I'm already "down"!
"They're not worthy of your company".
But still, I love them.
My "people", to me are more important than just me.
They are the masses
Whenever there are masses
Energy is thick.
And with "my people" thick energy transfers into bad actions.
Still, I love them.
Spread some love for your own people.
Turn that thick energy into good actions.
P.S. I love you.
