We’re Playing Dress Up and Democracy Is Our Chains

Take me from this church, I don’t belong to life Humans shattering bones with blood And taking life with a million knives Ingrained in our society the absence of rights Despite aged documents we claim to live by Ingrained in our food, flowing in our water Chemicals and poisons that shove us farther Into the […]

We Don’t Ask Questions

Why don’t we ask more questions Why do we do that Just do Just doing enough to get by Just doing enough to make a living Just enough to feed our wives and children Enough to be buried When you’ve had enough And forgotten When they’ve had enough Tell me a story, they ask me […]

Mama Africa, We’re Coming Home

Ignite a fire in their bones Mama Africa, we’re coming home Segregated in 2018 yet we are not alone When I spit these words, I’m in my zone I don’t bust coverages, just your expectations Master of standard English this ain’t my nation Police officers killing our people, but I found a revelation In the […]

Purging The Disdain Of Disability and Disorder, Even If I Die

    Burn the people who hate you burn them all Their homes are dens of witches Cut them off Their children are the offspring of robots Mangle every wire Force fed through tyranny lies, manipulations, and coagulation of non-stop greed but with fire and will our people, hiding in the midst of crusades will […]

Just Because It Was Bad Doesn’t Mean It Wasn’t Beneficial

\   Old songs traverse paths so long Long ago, seeming to be the best way they robbed you blind stabbed you in the heart drank the blood and took everything but your life away You gotta live with more than battle wounds and traces of war paint You have to live with real wounds, […]

An Aspergian’s Letter To Old Friends

If you’re an old friend (or if you’re not, but identify as one), then thank you for impacting my life in the time span we knew each other. If not, then read it as you normally would…also, my posts this month have been on the melancholy side. I’m trying to change that, but when I […]

An Aspergian Sheds Some Tears, And Light, On His Personal Abuse Story: The Aftermath
