Extortion

Sometimes I am overwhelmed with the overall mass empty mindedness. We lack care for our natural consciousness. Too many likes and shares on ishh that don’t mean ishh And it’s sad that people don’t even get it. I admit-- I was once there too Posting details about every little thing I do Creating these imaginary lines; lies about my life All the while I deny My truths nothing new it was merely taught to you In order to allude and distort you You see too many people are asleep marching To the rhythm of some else’s drum beat Walking the earth In confusion because What they created is an illusion People selfishly judging one another and Deny keeping thy brother So many looking for validity outside Like a invisibility cloak in which they can hide 202 likes on a selfie is not selfish But vanity and it takes 202 Likes to prove your insanity You are neither your selfie nor your skin To find yourself, look not out but within. You can’t possibly believe you are what they tell you to be? When naturally your dreams resonate further than your eyes can see You are energy. You are not a profile, a status or comment You are a person, a soul, a comet We are literally freaking stars Full of gas and ishh We are the light that God himself lit Plot twist: people already figured that out So they created a system to fill our heads with lies And kill us with doubt As the Egyptians walked in their Gold plated jewel dripping stride They were basking in the power we are forced to hide Now I understand I am all over the place Talking about Facebook, Egyptians and Outer space Talking all this chaos without any pace But I have waited long enough, I want them give our power back to us! Better yet I want us to rise We will take our power back By realizing the lies Open your eyes--reconnect your soul Give them no more power over your goals Dream as though you will never grow old Color life with your glow Smile in the face of fear And know what you feel is far is actually near Seek what need And believe you have already received Bless those you love and love all And when your higher self rings in, don’t miss the call Live in the moment, let go of the past Leave the future in the future And let no stone be cast. Treat others how you want to be treated But do not allow thy self to be defeated! Forgive, love and accept Let go, live on-no regret. Recall the inner King and Queen that you are! and make a wish on yourself, You are A shooting star!
