My Sister's Veil

My Sister's Veil

PREFACE MY SISTERS VEIL(a poem) Tonis Veil: A beautiful face is never enough To guarantee love, success, and trust. Torn and conflicted by what they see and say Maybe theyre right Its better their way. They always win, So of course we would choose To perpetrate a look That will never lose. Ill just take it to the twelfth degree So it appears self righteously To be me. So bury the mirror, And who you really see. And bury the hatred Of who you really be. Then its easy to forget the grief And promise yourself You can become A respectable Thief! Terris Veil: Restless and young With nothing to lose. Thrown into your world Unblemished, unbruised. Ready to grow, and trust and learn, But guns fill your hands before you discern The value of life, community and respect A simple way to mask your intellect. Apprentice of self-destruction, A king with no crown Frustrated and confused, By the systematic run around. Yet a gnarly lesson awaits to prove Its by your own hand You win or you lose! Tinas Veil: Abandoned and ashamed Afraid and unloved I hid my pain As innocently as a dove. The Lord answers prayers So invisible Ill be cause my blllack and nappy Embarrasses thee. If only but For a genuine veil, Id lose myself In self-medicated hell. But no need to worry, No need to fret Their yaki hair and blue contacts Are easy to get. Spare not a dime For value and worth Designer labels and gold To our pride gives birth. So strut on high, and lively, and proud As you die slowly With a legacy Broken and loud!
