"Founded on dreaming + draining
threatening your freedom
to stop your complaining
poisoning your water
while they say it’s raining
then call you mad
for complaining, complaining..
Old Tyme bureaucracy
drugging the youth
black rage is founded on
blocking the truth.
Murder and crime
compromise and distortion
sacrifice, sacrifice
Who makes this fortune?
Greed, falsely called progress
such human contortion..
Black rage is founded
on these things.”

- new song by lauryn hill, dedicated to Ferguson.

The area dividing
the brain and the soul
is affected
in many ways
by experience -

Some lose
all mind and become soul:
insane.
Some lose
all soul and become mind:
intellectual.
Some lose
both and become:
accepted.

"For some time,
women fooled me.
I would see a body, a face,
a seeming aura
of peace and gentleness,
a cool, refreshing lake to splash in…

but once they spoke,
there was a voice like chalk
scratching a chalkboard,
and what came forth as speech
was a hideous and crippled mind.”

"You got comfortable,
and things even
stayed the same…

for a while.


And inevitably,
change came
and eroded
the foundations
we had built.”

Early in the morning,
rising to the streets,
Light me up that cigarette
and I’ll strap shoes
on my feet.

I can feel the pull of #autumn
most especially at night
when the chill whistles
a cooler melody than before.

I think
#reincarnation
is like this concept
where all the people in the world
share the same soul and purpose
and that all of this time along,
we have been staring out
at each other
and somehow
not recognizing
our own likeness and reflection.

I persevere
because
I have faith
my team will lead me
as I walk forward
in blind #faith.
And when they hear
the random-patterned footsteps
& labored breathing of the pack,
all snakes and foes in the grass
will retreat in fear at the sight
of those pursuing life
with conviction.
