i’m tired of negativity

frustration and lack of

productivity

loss of creativity

destruction and

crippling disunity

we used to come together

stood as one against the enemy

now the ashes of our past

have scattered

look at the sorrow and ask yourself

does it matter?

the bones lay broken and bleached

by the oppressive sun

beaming down on us

what’s the real meaning of justice?

flags and slogans

flapping in the wind unseen

unheeded advice choking the throats

of the precious elders

do you understand?

do you know what i mean?

the children are the future yet

the future looks bleak

self pride self love self respect

are becoming obsolete

choice is disappearing

reasoning is limited

to force fed mind control by

puppeteer imperialists

it’s hard to gather my thoughts

to separate the fact from fiction

to disintegrate the chains

to open up my ears and listen

the universe is bleeding

struggling to right itself

to repair the holes and damage

that we the people have inflicted

whoever has ears needs to hear

whoever has eyes needs to see

whoever has a voice needs to speak

on the condition of this inequality

the lack of passion is disturbing me

unbridled anger over the unnecessary

is hurting me

what ever happened to the

inheritance of memory?

bring back honor

to this community

rise up steel your spine

refuse to be moved

throw away the cloak of cowardice

adjust your attitude

whoever has ears needs to hear

whoever has eyes needs to see

whoever has a voice needs to speak

on the condition of this inequality

…. to be continued?
