The poem is listed below
There’s Too Many Black Men That Feel Like They Aren’t Enough
Through All The Talent They Possess They’re Silenced By Doubt ,
A Complex To Prove To People Who Are On The Same Exact Level As Them That They Are Worthy To Be Accepted By Them
Who Do We Blame For These Fragile Men ?
Who’d Rather Put Down A Book Of Enlightenment, To Pick Up A Glock Of Death
Who Taught These Men That Being Dumb Is Cool &
Being Smart Is Weak
These Men Were Once Children Of Promise
Guided To Their Demise
Looked At As Enemies Through The Media’s Eyes
Who Do We Blame For Fathers Missing In Their Lives
Leaving Them Yarning For A Fatherly Guide
Who Taught The Men That Taught The Children
That It Is Okay To Kill Your Brother For Material Things We Can All Attain , If You’d Just Kept Your Head In The Books Would There Have Been So Much Pain ?
Do We Blame The Mothers For Not Having Control Or Understanding Of Her Sons Wants & Needs ?
Or Do We Blame The Father Who’s Stuck In The Same Cycle And Same Beliefs?
Do We Blame Society For Putting So Much Pressure On These Babies?
Who Do We Blame For The Death Of These Dreams ?
