Perpetuate The -Ism

by Zaki

mythical presentation of the past
widely read
spread among the masses like a plague
vicious cycles glorify
tainted stories heroify
while exposure to the truth can only horrify
in direct contrast
to these celebrated figures
lies a picture
incorrectly interpreted
accurately distorted
intraveneously distributed through the text
patients shuffled through
by demonstrating regurgitation
deluded minds participate in nationalistic tributes
western reputation shrouded by
of contributing factors to the development
of human life
merely because those responsible happened
not to be white
what is the desire
what is the harm
what lurks deep beneath
fear of a heightened spirituality
faithful recognition
of a power greater than man
despite all efforts
we will come to understand
