Not sure what to feel

 

So lost in this maze of kolonizer-created traditions

Consumer lies, pain & exploitation

Of the real

 

For so many years I can hardly stand it

A poem call "A Suicide Bomber"

A Suicide Bomber takes over the streets in the Middle East none knew his identity all they know is he left a note saying this..

Am just a young man who life was taking away,

standing in the middle of crater trying to understand the sadness and hate that brings tears of pain,...just yesterday i praying to my god..given thanks for letting me and my family survive...and now am standing in the middle of crater picking up rocks full of blood knowing nothing can go back...praying to my god to give me the strength to go and fight back..

Beat back the Korporate politrickSTARS- and walk yerself in to the nearest polling place- HARD

Pol-i-Tricks-

Do u get it?

 

Ain’t for Po’ folks like me…

There I said It!...

 

For folks behind false borders families living in unsafe quarters –

mamaz and babies living in shelters

Those Are Your Hang-Ups ( Mother's Day 2012)

Those Are Your Hang-Ups

 

Verse 1

Breaking your assumptions

By just living

Black disabled man out in public chilling

Krip-Hop Burning the Ballot at The Capital

Nazi slept with slave masters
Gave birth to Tea party members
Bill Clinton on the saxophone
While Obama tap dancing around racism

Occupy kicking out street folks
Facebook activism poke poke
Bill collectors on hold
Fuck paying off student loans

White House called me
I still have it on my answering machine
Could not deal with my advocacy
So they got the actress from GLEE

Uncle Sam wants me to pay my taxes
Yeah sure after I get my reparations
Youth with disabilities facing deportation
In the home & outside fear of execution

While media paints its own stories
