Trapped in a world – Poem By BossLady 


Trapped in a world where being successful is at an all time high but depression is overlooked.Black lives matter but the jail house is overbooked.

Cops pulling our people over left and right sometimes for no reason.

Oh she’s black and she’s driving a Lexus and that’s all that they keep seeing. 

I’m Jamecia and you’re who you are and we both could be Sandra Bland or Trayvon Martin if the cops keep taking lives with their own hands. 

Protect and serve that’s what they are supposed to do.

Black lives matter so they said but that’s not something they honor to. 

Let’s not forget about our community we have so many mental illness we overlook for the beauty queens.

We got kings that don’t respect us hell we don’t even respect ourselves.

We steady killing each other and always wanna cry for help.

Black lives matter but the jailhouse is over booked.

Trapped in a world where being successful is at an all time high but depression is overlooked.
