A poetry series about self-discovery.

meditating under willow trees at sunset,
thoughts mainfested without regrets,
without a salty sweat -
or a tragic conquest.
this is beyond the conscious.
the verbal pollution is dreadfully launching,
nuclear prejudices and racial segregation in our African nations.
I'm stepping up with the intentions,
of being the saviour of my generation!!
this is beyond propagandist-manipulation,
or power-related infatuation.
this is more of a spiritual education,
engulfing African youth with the knowledge to escape subordination.
poverty is real - 
the spoken stories are not ancient. 
our brothers & sisters can't even explain the experience of a mere vacation. 
then you tell me my pigment is a social violation - cause everything you see it the light within it starts to penetrate ya'.


embracing your own complexion
is merely a blessing.
in a world that systematically makes you hate your own reflection.
they say, "Christian, in the near future your poeTREE is gonna be irrelevant. No one is gonna pick from the fruits of your intelligence - racial hatred is ending with delightful prevalence." 
I replied, "Nonsense! Racial hatred runs deeper than the Bantu projects - Sowetean townships. The roots originate from the parliament, state capture agreements made without an audience."


local businesses never make cents,
black economic empowerment doesn't even make sense - 
when our people are still penniless. 
in the depths of the ghetto, 
survival of the fittest. 
imagine if you were a victim? 
fortunately, some of us are trying to exit with precision. 


the GHETTO makes you 

 a statistic of ADDICTION. 


not the drug-induced one,
the constant feeling of rejection -
and accepting that everything you do doesn't require creative expression.
