When Does It End (Excerpt from The Flower That Wasn’t Meant To Blossom) By Curiosity

When does it End?

It’s never enough, is it?

No matter what I do as a black man.

No matter how high I jump or how dark my skin is.

No matter how fast I can run.

Or no matter how hard I try in school.

It’s never enough.

The road gets tougher every day but I can’t complain.

It’s interesting to know how hard I have to work.

Double, triple because of the color of my skin.

It’s never enough, is it?

Can anyone answer my question?

Give me a justified answer?

But the road does have an end, sadly to say.

All so-called good things do come to an end, right?

I will, we will get our chance to shine.

To shine even brighter than the sun itself.

Just sit back and enjoy the show.
