Black Poetry : Lose You:Wake up call

student, but not for long
Wake up call,
To make me realize,
As the tears welled up in my eyes,
How much I still care.
I went away,
Expecting to feel the same way.
Feeling like I didn’t want anything to do with you,
Anymore, and that we were through.
That’s how I left it…

Wake up call,
When you took that wake up fall,
Fueled by your need for speed,
And you got greedy…
You got your fill,
As the story unfolds,
It ends with you,
Colliding with a streetlamp,
And your car being totaled.

Wake up call,
These are my confessions,
Just when I thought I said,
All I can say…
To you,
To myself…
About you and myself,
There is still more,
There was still more.
All along,
About ready to surface,
And burst into my liquid song.

I'm thrown,
And I don’t know what to do
If I'm going to tell it,
Then I’ve got to tell it all,
Nearly cried when I got that phone call.
I guess I’ve got to give you,
Part two of my confessions,
Cause what I thought digressed,
Is making progression.

Your family didn’t lose you,
And honestly before this and now,
I don’t think that I lost you either.
And I’m wondering if you really lost me…

But I almost lost you…
That does something to me.
It makes me wonder and consider,
That maybe the rose we had planted,
Isn’t completely withered,
And that me, you, we,
Are meant to be?????
And this wake up call…
Am I supposed to answer it??

Sometimes you get a second chance, sometimes not. I guess you have to ask yourself what will happen if you don't answer it. This sounded very genuine, and I liked that.

Diggin it deeply! I feel this. When confronted with things we didn't really want to know, what do we do?

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
