The Roll That Never Ends

by B.T. Bonner & Zamounde Allie

Minds eye drowning with tears of rage
clouding my spirit
in a purple haze
obstructing the sight of my gaze
from witnessing the evil of man today
an eruption of flames engulf my heart
A Realization?
Or something that I knew from the start
hate fueling the fire
faith senging from the spark
leaving me nothing with which to part
then the tears fall down like rain
cleansing my spirit,
renouncing my pain,
reviving my will to continue the game

Words erupting from the heart
Too tired from tooth aches
Pressure from within my mouth
Bursting out!
Trying to be heard behind silent walls
Words fall
Within dirty ol' bathroom stalls
Telling the truth underneath it all
Stuck to my feet
A trail of dirty realities and forced fate
Beyond the unda-ground rails
That history laced
To open prohetic gates
to let the stampede of change
lay a beaten path for today
So tomorrow wouldn't be the same
The roll must run out
Evidence is the stain!
