Did The Wind Blow?

By Chase Von (Editor/Mentor)

~And The Wind Blows~
Tamika stands on a city street
Fear grips her insides...
"Will they come to put the fire out?
Older woman's voice...
"Child?  In this neighborhood?"
She hears her infants cries...
And the wind blows
Winds of change?
You know I don't know!
And the wind blows
Winds of change?
You know I don't know!
The last word Malcolm heard was....
FREEZE!!!!!
Shielding rain from his eyes
Head liner in tomorrows spread
"ANOTHER BLACK YOUTH DIES!"
And the wind blows
Winds of change?
You know I don't know!
And the wind blows
Winds of change?
You know, I don't know!!
Is it easier to take life?
Than it is to give?
Now the word positive
Is negative!
Everyone seems to have a cause
Worth dying for!
Or is it really?
Just less reason to live?
La Tonya  didn't see the election
She was looking for heat
La Tonya is what you call
Down to earth
Check out the shoeless feet!
And the wind blows
Winds of change?
You know I don't know!
And the winds blows
Winds of change?
You know I don't know!
Shemika's view of the world
Was so brief
Through her cute little eyes
She was born with the H.I.V.
The other night she died
And the wind blows
Winds of change?
Oh God I hope so!
And the wind blows
Winds of change?
Oh Lord I hope so!
Is it easier to take life?
Than it is to give?
Now the word positive
Is negative!
Everyone seems to have a cause
Worth dying for!!!
Or is it really
Just less reason to live?
