Light of Blackness

Humpty Dumpty was Egyptian. Hampered with mental genocide and in this evolution there seems to be no hope for the black human. A tribal extinction. Describe a culture that is as urgent without draining your energy with anger. Easily more captured. It takes privilege to be present. In this land, digging for the past should not take man to prison. Where is your wealth if I stopped hating myself? Where is your wealth if I stopped hating myself? ____________________________ Unpublished, 2019 I played around with the aesthetic and personality of a cannon. I had imagined or compared the sudden incident to "race". We are in a war but even in war there is more love, more sacrifice. Seems like our lack of responsibility is why we have succeeded in taking apart humanity in a way. However, there is hope to break down this system "when he falls down", those who were loyal to using the weapon also fell. Maybe this is how race ends, by perceiving genderlessm colourless persons which would be the next generation and the next evolution. Like Humpty Dumpty, we need a a great fall of egos, pride, of greed, bad energies to balance our pieces, "the conscious." and taking care of it.

A poetry that shines with black words, on white canvas,.The blacks shine in every field all over the word despite the tribal genocides still taking place somewhere in the deepest corners of Africa and over the world..A good poetic style. good luck.
