Read Poem: Untitled and Unmastered, by Samuel D. Ibrahim

POETRY FESTIVAL. Submit to site for FREE. Submit for actor performance. Submit poem to be made into film.

The walls around me fell to the ground;

A decade before I heard the words, “lock down;”

That exposed every fear that’s ever been passed down;

From my first ancestor that was first locked down;

Scared that his bloodline won’t escape from being bound;

Frightened that the joy he knew won’t come back around;

So when I hear that the pandemic makes you frown;

And your movements are restricted because danger’s all around;

I’m indifferent.

Because nothing’s different;

Welcome to the hell that I’ve been stuck in;

Where every move that you make feels unlucky;

And I don’t trust you because I don’t trust me;

Welcome to version of life that I see.

Where every day is a quest to be free.
