Slavery

Once you name it,
it belongs to you.
You own it.
It can't be
unseen, unknown
It is you, you are
it, forever

Beliefs beyond reality,
Choices for your mentality,
I'd catch you in the night,
Save you from your brutality.

With visual field microscopic
Some utterly blind and myopic
Consume to the max
As a luxury tax 
On those needing help philanthropic

Own It

Reality blended
Mocingbird mockingbird sings gay
Tied, bound, ravaged, sold as a slave.
Silenced mouth proclaim
Pounding breast
Find music playing lightly creeps.

Silent Cries

Taunting phantoms butcher his coloured back,
Rivers of blood flow down the cruel chains;
Cries resound through the ruthless ship,
Waking Death from his peaceful slumber.

Fly like an Eagle

Free, Free, Free 

There' re no chains on me

Free, Free, Free 

From mental slavery

Free, Free, Free

To spread my wings and fly

High like an eagle 

Up to the sky

Freedom Lost

“Sometimes you will never know the value of something, until it becomes a memory.”

lost it all for insurance
we became livestock

Untouchables

In this poor life we’ve been condemned to die,
Forever stuck in our unwanted caste;
Pawns, broken by society,
Hunched at the pyramid's base we lie;
We are the untouchables of mankind.

MAN TO MACHINE

I 
have 
created 
you
only 
to 
obey 
my 
command
and 
only 
to 
help 
me!

But 
you, 
bloody,
very 
often,
in 
the 
name 
of 
'link 
failure'
or 
so,
you 
make 
me
your 
slave!

civil wars




   Civil Wars 
A civil war lasts long in psyche of people 
Bitterness of having lost festers from one
Generation to the next and black America 
Are still victims caught in the middle of
The unresolved.

Fat Cats and Lawyers

Sharp Suited Sharks 
Feeding
Fervently Feasting, Foul Fiends 
Covetous Cuthroats, Cultured Convicts Convincing
Innocents Inked In Immensely Incurred Interests, 
Indebted
Enslaved, Effaced Emotions, Exasperated

sick eye

Judging by his muteness, he is sick,
Sickly fallible;
Yet by his playing the verbose
The man gets no better;
He is sick, no matter what he does,
No matter how he looks today;
All of them are sick, except me!

Blind Obedience

Blind obedience is slavery.
Freedom siphoning governments count on your blind obedience.
I was just doing my job.
It's not my fault I maim and, murder.
My personal ethics and, morals disappear as I am blindly obedient.
