I OVERCOME

WE MAY NOT ALWAYS BE ON TOP, BUT WE WILL ALWAYS...,

"OVERCOME!"

 

*Tamari Campbell*

 

I Overcome addversity,

the disappoiments,

and the fears.

I overcome, bad judgment,

Containment

control,

but unhold my soul,

I OVERCOME you and your words of distruction,

injustice is what I see to uphold!

I have OVERCOME,

your words no longer phase me, touch, or control me,

you're nothing but an epitome of what you thought a man should be.

No longer will you hold me in shakcles, or tear me down, for your words are like a tune that lost sound!

They say "we shall overcome" I say I have found my ground!

 

 

*Logical Poet*

 

I WILL OVERCOME.

Adversity on every side of me;

trying to encompass every part of me!

Insisting I relinquish all of me,

but this will never be...,

because Adversity could never be a part of me!

For you see..., I OVERCOME!

Strong in my mind, my spirit..., one of a kind.

Some call it impossible to concieve;

the concept that i have to press forward towards

the mark I long to achieve.

I OVERCOME.

Not so complicated, I am me and me alone,

unbridled energy and determination, never to be

duplicated! I come strong...,I OVERCOME.

My time not to be wasted or or or consumed by

the nonsense which surrounds my day;

wont be brought down, held back, or be caused any

type of delay!

I OVERCOME!

 

*Tamari Toledo*

 

I OVERCOME

There is so much more I could say to tear you down, the way u have done to me time and time around.

But why should a bother with telling you anything? The best I can do is let you see with your own eyes, that

what you say or do no longer affect me, or scare me! I still stand my ground!

I OVERCOME,

The childhood memorize,

The fights I had daily just to fit in.

Because when the color of my skin was not dark enough or too dark to be in.

When people look at me and wonder who is she and where is she from.

Pointing fingers at me and the whispers I could hear from here and upward bound.

No longer will the days of slaver affect me, because I chose to be me!

Not someone that the government states I should be, like picking and ethnicity!

What that? I am me!

Or chosen not to check a box for who I am and where I came from or even what background I from!

The government says it’s for a censes I say it is senseless!

I OVERCOME!

 

*The Logical Poet*

 

I OVERCOME!

Bring your all! What more can be done to me? Your words of deceit and deception no longer affecting me.

I come in a transparency,

cannot be put with me back against the wall;

my poetical logic dropping you to your knees!

Bringing something new at every turn, oppressors need to watch themselves, my words are fire, bringing heat that burns...,

a torture you cannot OVERCOME!

Learned at a young age, complications and

hard times came at me, setting the stage...,

Family not there;

friends, i looked around..., nowhere!

No help to be found!

Depression whispering in my ear, NO ONE CARES.

Government trying to take me out;

no health care, no funding for financial aid, about to lose my home,

laid off from work, no money to pay on my phone!

Yes, you THOUGHT you had me!

But I will always OVERCOME!

My sis Tamari and I have come together to let you know;

life may have thrown a few blows at us, and yes, they stung,

but the days of fear, self doubt, and trying to assimilate with others..., DONE!

We have won because..., we have learned how to OVERCOME!
