I Shouldn’t Be Concerned But…

I Shouldn’t Be Concerned But…

It bothers me that we don’t talk and the vibe is far from cool
That I know your least concern is our relationship
And you biggest concern is being perceived as a fool
Do those with a birds eye view that you rarely speak to matter?
My guess is, Yes
As I live outside the bubble
Viewing but no longer hearing the laughter

I’m not sure if I watch with envy or disgust
Not sure if I admire or lust
Not sure if it’s “just me” or is it “we” and “us”
My concerns can’t be you
Be cause you don’t concern yourself with me
So my new concern is questioning
Why can’t you let things be?

I shouldn’t be concerned…

But what’s a leader to do?
When the success around his loved ones
Is distant and minimal
We are raised thinking we’re less than and criminal
Fighting for light
In a path with traps that’s dismal
Just to be considered equal
Intelligent, worthy and peaceful
With a pride that’s misinterpreted
By oppressive eyes through a peephole
See the visions not seen, Bro
Only the face magnified but not keen though
How can I not be concerned?
I have a family out here to speak for.

I shouldn’t be concerned…

But concern brings passion and change
It develops the pictures of life’s way
It breeds ideology and healed pain
When you care, you do
And actions spread
We’re hungry for knowledge
But we all “Knead The Bread”
How strong was your meal?
Would you mind it being your last?
Are you content with how you feel?
Will it waste out with your gas?
Why aren’t you concerned?
Take your time after the ask
Cause some answers need a voice
That’s better in the act
