Midnight

Will I ever be
anything more than
young black + unlucky
My only vice
ls living amply enough
To cheat reincarnation
sending up enough sins
To sully my soul
Exile me from
A second chance
Bury me for good
in the dirt
I succumbed to
Plant daisies for my mom
So she’ll know
There was more
to my existence
Than my mistakes
I fucked it up
The best I could
She shined love
In the midst
of my darkness
Her faith
the only reason
I dig myself out
In time to see dawn
