Sitting hear i listen,as these men run their mouths.
All conversation sounding the same.
It seems too me that ingorance has polluted the game.
I've sat inside of cages,watching the world
around me change.
And really all i wanted to do was excape the pain.
To live to see a positive laid for our children.
The real amongst us MUST teach them
the truth of this game.
To speel out the tragity useing the blood in
our veins.
We spiral further in a void of oppression,
ignoring that our footsteps are the
foundation for our reflections.
Old men preach, like shackled prophets,
but their words never reach outside of barbedwire
fences.
Sound proffed in a life of never ending questions.
We ask ourselves why????
sitting hear i listen,
but the meaningless conversation only waters the
steel roots of my frustration.
Are we all diseased with the need to be what
we aren't?
A nation of men mentally unfed.
Unfit to deal with the silence.
Under educated by system that is designed
to steel cultuer, never do they nurture.
Or teach the furture to feel pride in the struggle
they were born to bare.
Sitting hear i listen,attentive is my vision,
as i search this poppulation for one soul
unscarred by mental infultration.
But i see no life in the eyes of these men,
only empty space, and question WHY??
When why doesn't even matter now!!
The question is how, and when, will WE begin,
to change the cycle we put ourselves in?
When will we look in the miror and realize,
that our eyes now belong to the children we leave
out here alone in this world of trickery,
and culture theft!!
You know the greatest viilan of them all is the one who
shares your complextion.
sitting next too you so full of meaningless
conversation, but what eles do we have to do but
LISTEN!!!!!!
