insult to injury

they say, slow & steady wins the race,

but i’m down on my luck working at a faster pace,

my love, i don’t need no more space…

i been lost

i been found

sometimes within the same day

do you feel the same way?

i just want everyone to make it home safe,

so they can rest & reflect

pray & prepare for obstacles that may interject

that peace of mind that we strive for,

my love for life

starts to drift away,

the shade of my skin seems to dictate my days

thoughts of a better tomorrow seem to slip away,

but I stand my ground hoping today is the day’
