Obsession


I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of mother.
I admire her brave yet sensitive soul,
to bring me into this world.
Pregnant at the age of 15,
as she sat huddled in a slave hut corner,
not daring daring to get whipped.
She is part of my obsession.

I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of father.
For what he did in the past ,
is too horrible for words.
He fled leaving my sick, dying mother,
and me alone to quiver.
He left for a cause, then my mother died.
This is my life of obsessions.

I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of family.
My mother died, my father had disappeared.
I was adopted when I was 3.
This is what I ask for,
a family-mama, papa, me, and another.
Family is a part,
of my obsession.

I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of friendship.
Since I was black it was hard,
for me to make friends.
I was considered a loner,
and I still am.
Is it because I'm too obsessed,
with my obsession?

I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of love.
Yet I'm not as happy,
as I was when you weren't here.
I don't think it's love.
I think we're just friends for,
you could not be the one,
for my obsession.

I'm too obsessed, ,br> with the meaning of hope.
What is hope,
if you're already dead?
It has no meaning to me,
if it does for you, you're lucky.
I have no hope for,
getting my obsession.

I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of freedom.
I'm black so I'm poor.
I got whipped if I did wrong.
I wish I was white.
It's too late, I've already lost.
My life ends too soon,
with my obsession.

I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of peace.
Please no more battle.
We must face it,
we're all losers in this world.
If we had peace among our countries,
peace wouldn't be part,
of my obsession.

I'm too obsessed,
with the meaning of death.
I would rather die than live,
another day in this world.
I know this sounds crazy,
for I have death,
as my obsession. Author's note: This poem is written as if I was a black girl in the slave times. Don't worry this poem isn't true!! I wrote it at a friend's house one time.
