Coming from the Caribbean,
Jamaica to be exact.
I never saw colour,
I never knew race,
I never knew it could be such disgrace.
I knew of social classes,
now that was prominent,
but still it never meant,
that we had to be bent,
on who is who,
and what is what,
and we were content.
To America I go!
to the world were my dreams have hope?
where opportunities are endless?
This is where I noticed colour,
that my complexion really hovered.
What’s this they talk about?
The blacks, the whites, the hispanics, the “you name it”?
I just DON’T GET IT!
Am I being too ignorant, is there I’m something missing?
WHY, do we need to point this out?
I wish I didn’t feel so bad about not being smart enough
I wish I could make ya’ll happy and myself happy
I wish I didn’t know anything
I wish I was completely ignorant cause its not like I know a lot anyways
I wish no one harm
I wish I could people around me
I wish I knew what to do.
I wish I knew what happiness was like when I was a kid again
I wish I didn’t have to think about the future already
I wish I was 9 again
I wish I could read minds
I wish I knew what I wanted to study
I wish I knew what I was best at
I wish I knew what to do next
I wish God would speak to me.
I jus realize I have never seen him bitterly upset with his frenz like he is with me
All I wanted was to be loved & give love back [that’s a given]
There are things that you do when your in love, [I think] like:
U just want to show them love everyday [all day] in any possible way
U want to shower them with gifts
U want to be with them at reasonable times
U want to do things to please them
U want to talk to them at all times
U want to find out more things about them
U want to hear their voices a lot
U love small things that they do
U want to know about their well being a lot
U don’t ignore them
U apologize when u did something wrong
U respect them
U trust them
U don’t be the angry jealous boyfriend[/gf]
U talk about them all the time
U make them know that you are the joy of your life
[An old letter I did not send but instead decided it was returned to sender, moi]
I said your flawed before and I also said love is blind I know but its not dumb and its not always blind it just kinda suffers from long term memory.
I wish you expressed youself more. I wish I was your best friend in actions and not just words. Wtf!!!
I don’t know
