Invisible Man

Invisible Man

hopeless

helpless

man child

black child

daddy never claimed you

mama never named you

raised you in ignorance

sent you into the world defenseless

snatching glances of cardboard people

through broken slats of whitewashed

picket fences

called upon to witness

the destruction of your kind

bamboozled into thinking the world

cared about the education of your mind

told to man up and suffer through the pain

told that the brown-skinned love you sought

was a ball and chain

designed to keep you down

and bleed away success

5 kids no job now who to blame for this mess

wall of mistrust constructed of lily white lies

taking to the bottle and smoke to hide your cries

forced to keep your heart deep undercover

I can see your struggles

I can see you, brother
