A Piece of Mind
Author: Walter Atwell
What is agony to a descendent,
Of the once enslaved African People.
A people subjected to inhumanity, abomination,
Destitution treated today to its sequel.
The answer my brother is in the adaptability,
Facilitation & consolation in the person mind.
The progress shown presently orotates the ability.
Of the African American to economically entwine.
It sounds like a Plush Healthy Feat,
Because the African race was already incline.
Not only to cast their lot, but to unroot their feet,
From dumb & deaf, to intelligent & blind.
Four hundred years have passed but still,
I feel the cracking of the whip.
I shed the tears of a soul hungry to be filled,
My steps are like those fresh from the slave ship.
Outside of prison I would not claim freedom
I hear the echo’s’ free at last “and shiver.
Wondering when the light will down to free them,
Who hear me speak& fear the truth I deliver?
