Too Close… So Far…

image

Too close
to the shade of cocoa
On land
where they get their cocoa
That sends
them to dreams and slumber
While I
can only scream for slumber.

Too close
to the shade of dirt
These hands
that have scratched in dirt
Two weeks
the world walks in slumber
While I
can only scream for slumber.

Too close
to the shade of mud
This face
thrown and dragged in mud
So far
from the right shade of brown
Sold off
for less than ten pounds.
