Donuts & Coffee

It's what you did when you screen-shoted me
Negotiating a disservice for my existence
Calling me out my name because I was not born of you
Adding to lies on a case you were absent to observe 
Realizing your deepest fear lay between hand and joint
Calling on a ship once again to import me that's how you saw me
Explaining the situation, and scenarios that played out
Retailing my image to negatively skew the black market, respectfully you were absent
Actually I remembered you never questioned me
Throwing shades to further distance any feelings of remorse
Instigator of all decisions to lock me down longer
Only on the life of my mother, do I constantly die every day
Never release me expecting to be the same, I'll only carry on better

Into blood-shot eyes I could see you didn't care, training didn't equip you with this 
No you made that decision all on your own 
Calling me everything from the great depression to the ruins of Mali
Ask Mr officer how many times he tried to guilt-trip me for something I lived unaware of
Raising a hand to me thinking it will raise standards
Closely examining my actions while I close my case on your repeatedly 
Excellence? Yes it was achieved before you lock and keyed me here
Restore my dignity to me before you strip and search for a reason to hold me to ransom
And go back to the moments when you stopped me because my face was too young and naive
To fit the description dispatched by whom to ride this motor
Expect nothing from me but the value & respect, of which my parents instilled in me
Study. Study me a little longer, why not you're wasting my years anyway

I want to publish a book, it will be a collective  of my work from the start of my journey at 8 years old til Summer 2015. Hold me to it !
