Implosive Cycle

by Zaki

a tainted community
starved of the proper nutrition
overloaded with entertaining things
i long for the next cinematic
brain cell erosion
takes place, building a need
to sail the ocean
in search of a savior
the one given to me
seems out of touch
with my life realities,
wanting me to sit-in and
be abused
allowing love of self to take
a back seat to
loving you
misguided, i strive for self
thoroughly educated
in the negativity of me
only knowledge of my
past is that of bondage,
brainwashed, culture washed
a white washed
history of civilization, though
a savage
manner in which you built this nation
my level of frustration
as the temperature rises in
the field of burning
that are not enlightened,
reach for the horizon
self mastery
an alliance with the common good
using the common tool called common sense
in defense of my
my struggle is for control
of my future tense
no matter the cost
