Sporadically Speaking

by AntPearson

With every flash
Thoughts racing through my mind in a flash
Moving as fast as the time
With every flash
Pictures of the past, present, and future subdue me
I'm truly blessed to still be taking steps
when one wrong step could have ruined me
With every flash
The past paints a struggle on a canvas of trouble
placed in the frame of inequality's puzzle
hanging on the walls of injustice
With every flash
Patrol cars race to the scene
another altercation escalated into a dream
visions are blurred
losing sight of the world
when the blind leads the blind
they trade eyes for pearls

minds for gold
souls for money

values for conformity
morals for clothes
With every flash
The present sheds light on the fight
progress formed through a struggle shines bright
Through all the fantasy in the air
Sometimes its not fair but sure worth it
It taught lessons clear
It bought people closer in purpose
With every flash
an ambulance races to a crash
drunk driver
no survivors
collectively we crash
to reality
Another scene screaming of tragedy
another reason to grieve
another fatality
With every flash
we gravitate towards understanding
while never forgetting why we're still standing
still working
still focused
still hurting
still open
With every flash
focus is the key
to unlock chains on brains determined to break free
determined to make peace within themselves first
driven to shape the future through hard work.
