Lonely

Sat, 03/26/2016 - 16:55 -- Jetoye

S, Someone please explain to me how we define ourselves

U, Undermined, unloved, understood by none

C, Cease the stronghold on this white washed country

C, Cancel your freedom subscription the magazines void

E, Everyone is killing each other but we call it the army

S, Stop the confederacy, start the conspiracy

S, Stay ignorant to how this country is the core of injustice

 

Allow me to teach you the ways of success.

First we start with talent then work then asking then begging then favors then before long we learn origami just so we can reach the stars.

All while the plastic people set impossibly high bars.

Imagine how their families felt

Lives taken by the ones who "help"

Help the ghetto learn slang phrases like

" I cant breathe"

"Please don’t shoot"

And, "I'm pregnant"

Act as though the leaders aren't illiterate

Because come on, their secretary couldn't have remembered to cut all the mean things out of his news paper.

I represent a country where a black man defending his family is a thug

And a white serial killer is "poor and misunderstood"

For the love of Washington when are we going to stop basing progressive ideas on a document written over TWO HUNDRED FREAKING YEARS AGO.

This go around of ignorant sounds make me bound by the rusted chains of history

Now children repeat after me

Guns up!

People down!

Flags up!

People Down!

Sickness up!

People down!

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF ULTIMATE GENOCIDE.

STUDENTS THAT COMMIT SUICIDE.

AND INTESE RATES OF HOMICIDE.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

LAND OF THE MENTALLY ENSLAVED

 

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
