He is trapped inside a savage ghetto,
bloody tears of black mother —
as her child is viciously killed by the police.
She hopelessly screams; 
"WHERE IS THE PEACE?"
these sinister streets bring out her inner beast,
the tragic poverty made her sleep at night without a feast,
earns a minimum wage —
though she pays for her children's educational fees.
She claims LOVE IS ALL SHE NEEDS.
This subliminal pain cuts her heart deep,
joyful happiness is what she seeks.
Nightmares of a Black Child:
Death is what she will call "PEACE".
