I didn’t or did I


I didn't even know him..
but I knew him if that makes any sense..

Just found out that he lost his life to society's nonsense..
The way they try and break you down and make you complacent.

The many obstacles they put in your way to make you feel that as a black man you will never make it...
I didn't even know him, but I knew him if that could make any sense..

He had a few rough years but worked hard to steer clear of anything that didn't make honest cents..
Just found out that his fiancé and son now mourn because he got caught up in society's nonsense..

They fill your brain with shame, make you forget the power that is rightfully yours to claim..
Glorifying everything that naturally is unnatural to you..

Just found out that he is now a hashtag added to my timeline..
Yet another one of our Kings caught up in society's nonsense..

I didn't know him
but I knew him if that makes any sense.
