“Battles” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 3/9/2020

It’s A BATTLE To Survive ...
For ... MANY In Life ... !!!!!
 
From The Day We Arrive ...
As Young Infant Child ...
To A Time LONG BEFORE ... !!!
 
Where Sperm Battle In HOARDS ...
So That We Can Be Born ... !!!
 
There Are Battles And Wars ...
From Conception Fa’ Sure ... !!!
 
But Those With A Force ...
From A POWERFUL Source ...
 
Tend To OVERCOME ... !!!
When Battles Become ...
What They Have To Confront ...
 
One of My TOUGHEST Ones ...
Was To Help My Sick Mum ... !!!

 
After My Dad Had RUN ...
When Sickness Had STUNNED ...
And Left My Mum NUMB ... !!!
 
And UNABLE To Walk ... !!!
And Eventually TALK ... !!!!
 
A BATTLE That Showed ...
That Big Virge Could Cope ... !!!
With Something That MOST ...
Would of LEFT To Those ...
Who Work In Care Homes ...
 
But I QUICKLY Refused ...
To Let STRANGERS ABUSE ... !!!
The Woman Who Carried Me ...
... Inside Her WOMB ... !!!

 
You See Many ASSUME ...
That I’m An ANGRY Dude ...
When They Have ... NO CLUE ...

 
of The BATTLES That I ...
Have Seen In My Life ...
That Were FAR From NICE ... !!!
 
I’ve Battled Sometimes ...
To REMOVE Suicide ...
From RULING My Mind ... !!!
 
Because My Appearance ...
Has Indeed Been A Hindrance ...
 
To YES ... Finding Girls ...
To Share Virges’ World ...
 
Because of My Skin ...
And My THICK DARK LIPS ...
NOT Being A Thing ...
That They Wanted To Kiss ... !!!

 
But I’ve BATTLED Past ...
The Type of Young Ass ...
Who Chose To Walk Past ...
 
Because of The Battle ...
Inside of The Hearts ...
of Those Who Like CATTLE ...
Just CANNOT See Past ... !!!
 
The Herd Who Are Branded ...
With Thinking IMPLANTED ...
 
With ... RACIST Ideals ... !!!

 
These Battles Are REAL ...
For People Like Me ... !!!

 
Who Many Believe ...
Have A Dark Ugly Sheen ... !!!
 
I’ve Battled With This ...
Since I Was A ... Kid ... !!!
 
Sometimes YES With Those ...
Who DON’T Have Light Skin ... ?
Because of The Battle ...
They HOLD DEEP WITHIN ... !!!
 
The One Where They Think ...
Like Slaves Used As CHATTEL ... !!!
 
You See My Talk RATTLES ...
So Of Course Causes Battles ... !!!

 
With Those Who Are SICK ...
Like ... All These RACISTS ... !!!!!!

 
But Battles I’ve Had ...
Go WAY BEYOND THAT ... !!!
 
And These Words Are FACT ...
I’ve Battled For Land ...
With My IGNORANT Dad ... !?!
 
I’ve BATTLED For CASH ... !!!
And A Life Where I Can ...
Live Like A GOOD Man ...
 
WITHOUT BATTLING ...
Like Some CRIMINAL King ... !!!

 
It’s A BATTLE That I ...
Have Seen DAMAGE Guys ...
Both Dark Skinned And Light ... !!!
 
But You Whites Need To Know ...
That This Battle Is KNOWN ...
To A LOT of Black Folks ...
And This Is ... NO JOKE ... !!!

 
So BEFORE You Make Quotes ...
That Could Leave Your Nose BROKE ... !!!
 
REMEMBER Your Battles ...
AREN’T Like Those We Handle ... !!!

 
While You Light Your Candles ...
And Your ... Fireworks ...
 
Most Black People Grapple ...
With A World Filled With HURT ...
Because of Lives CANCELLED ...
By ... Uniformed JERKS ... !!!

 
And YES POLITICIANS ...
Whose Work Seems To Serve ...
To KEEP On DISMISSING ...
The Battles Observed ...
 
That Prove We Are PEOPLE ... !!!
 
... NOT Some Kind of EVIL ...
To Be Treated UNEQUAL ... !!!

 
These Are TRUTHS MOST CAN’T Handle ... !!!
But These Words YES Are FACTUAL ... !!!
 
And Are Simply A FEW ...
 
of My Lifetimes’ ...
 
........ “ BATTLES “ ....... !!!
