You ever laughed and clenched your fist at the same time?
Ever cursed someone and praised God in the same line?
I know it says to love your neighbors but those neighbors don’t engage
They don’t understand my life or why I’m in a constant rage
They ask, “Who the hell is James Baldwin, and why is he so important?”
And how does he have more in common with the son baptized in Jordan?
I get tired and truthfully I never have the time to be
Because every second this world is trying to take the light from me
