Try for Me, by N.E.Avery

Try for Me

This is the voice you’ve given me: yes sir. right away sir.
This is the face you’ve given me: black.
This is the lie you’ve told about me: abortion is my number one killer.
This is how you’ve broken a race: turned us against ourselves.
Now, my eyes are open.

You pin me down and scrap me clean of ambitions
if I fight back you lapel me “viscous”;
Truth be told, it is my fault; 
I’ve allowed myself in your web to be caught
Now, my thoughts must be spoken.

I’ve gotta try
try for me.
