It’s not fair,
Newborns being brung along
Be casted to your elder’s arms
For they already gave you well
By giving you their younger selves.
Their times been spent
With well intent,
Just for your cause
With no applause,
Your gratitude
Has been removed,
Their golden years
You made them lose.
Just one year shy
Of the finish line
Retirement years slowly subside
As they arise to baby cry’s.
I feel their heart beat growing faint,
Their weakened bones
Their lifeless face,
Their hopeless sighs
Misfortune steers
Disappointment infiltrates the air.
Anger slowly goes astray
But they’ll always feel betrayed.

I'm Rolando, I also go by the poet name SkyBlack some of my work is available for viewing in the Penman lounge. FreestyleVision has given me an opportunity to express myself more, outside of the poetry. This Biography is difficult to write, I’m content on writing about almost anything but when it comes to myself I sometimes draw blanks. I’ll start of by telling my origins. I’m from New York (the best city known to man) and I still reside there today. I love music, art and of course writing. I’m a big horror film fanatic and even though this is so, my favorite movie right now is Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street. Not a true horror film, more like a gory musical, but one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. A true classic. I just saw this movie for the first time like two weeks ago and already watched it like eight times. But besides all that I’m just a average guy writing my thoughts and hoping the world enjoys what my mind concocts.
