The Green Mile

by Femme Fatale

a young man seeks courage as he struggle
through this journey called "life"
releasing a mount of knowledge from his soft lips
 to every black soul in sight
he chants from morning to night
never once afraid to quench the thirst of an unknown admirer
always keeping his eyes open for prospect buyer
to all those who listen: he says,
"complaining is the name of the game,
I claim the same as you- for this forsaken fame"
I only want  J-U-S-T-H-I-S piece - peace of mind
all the time, not just some of time!
like his captured ancestors crying "freedom" within
this buffalo solider truly understand where he has been
he is taken all of you with him
knowing the unfinished saga left to be learned
as he kneels down patiently waiting to be heard
 I watch this brave man whose strength can never be replaced
and pray with no doubts of any fallen mistakes
always my brother rise up and keep the FAITH!
