Momentary relapse to forgotten ways/ The matrimony of chance has lots to say/ Sanctimonious dance meaningless wordplay/ When all remains same at the end of the day/ You’re most ardent for a moment or few/ Until cameras are gone then revert the view/ Of souls hardened ill aligned or askew/ So beg pardons margins are nothing new/ Loves for martians it can’t be a trait of Earth/ Ignoring hardship most people stray from birth/ The indifference makes all the discord worse/ It’s no different than ignoring a baby’s hurts/ Being able to help but choosing to abstain/ Is a label our society wears proud as a mane/ It’s amazing we’re even still alive in the game/ When we kill our countrymen without shame
Lemme find a reason to not break night fiending/ In this killing season treason isn’t higher meaning/ Or learning my causes are leaning on all ceilings/ Glass otherwise shattered profusely bleeding/ Believing the heathens who’re actively misleading/ Massa says police beatings aren’t increasing/ Seeing is not belief then it’s false flag seeking/ And waving only to awake the giant sleeping/ Masses teeming with possibilities of being/ More than a thing a mere nuisance for deceiving/ Too many a noose are swinging I’m not leaving/ Without my mama’s gold I came retrieving/ She is Africa the stolen boasting thieving/ Hoaxing demons can no more once we begin/ To rise up and resist the condition we are in/ The action of resistance is a peace movement
I invest my energy into positive outcomes/ My breath in every inch is God spout some/ What’s left very distinct marks about one/ Or two weary hearts on top your mountain/ The abstract fountain wit intentional flow/ To breakdown make soft or even erode/ Those obstacles external years of in road/ Seem so meaningless unless it all is just so/ Let’s drive slow enjoy the now it’s just us/ A private show let’s watch how we build trust/ The time is a no this just passionate lust/ Thrust on top a years going all or it’s bust/ But I’m all about the butt but that’s no excuse/ Your insecurities and wants shun the proof/ When actions should silence all preconceptions/ I’m still fighting for your love what’s the use?
I want for my children to live longer than me/ Be stronger smarter and certainly more free/ Want my son to know love and all it can be/ So I shower him with hugs most frequently/ Then when he speaks to me I look and listen/ The times coming quick this time I’m missing/ Answering questions thanked by sweet kissing/ The best father I can be fulfilling a life mission/ We all have many callings but very few answers/ So listen to the voice inside that’s loves dancer/ Stay safe and take your share of chances and some/ May not like that you’re so beautifully handsome/ Please no one that it displeases you to do so/ That all of your actions may align your soul/ Take hold and manifest in your own happiness/ Stand bold and never accept some deserve less
We survived the fire with no arsonist alarm/ Purified put higher cursed passed it along/ Souls we inspired work to right wrongs/ And so we’re admired from your safe position/ A piece of curriculum studied from afar/ From a piece of a continent message in a jar/ No peace on this countenance please it goes so far/ Peace officers brandishing pieces of old scars/ Celebrating rights to use arms while we raise hands/ To demands that we cease and desist and disband/ While their powers expand but conscience shrinks/ What if the roles were reversed does no one think?/ Do the eyes not blink at the tears we shed?/ The marches protests and sermons we’ve said/ Our sons and daughters laid down to early bed/ By your violence without stories or a kiss goodnight
I was taught never lay down let em take my life/ We leave no man behind never run from a fight/ In the same breath I teach my son it’s wrong to fight/ Respect authority but never let em dim your lights/ Know your rights fight when they’re infringed upon/ Study history and cite facts carry the baton/ For ancestors and progeny I leave imprints in wax/ Archived and timeless there’s a war going on/ Nonviolence ain’t practiced outside on your block/ For the violence we practice with the parry and block/ Societies violence from becoming a stumbling block/ Over cycles of violence that land you in a cell block/ Or a box know yourself that’s the first lesson/ Your enemies keep you from reaching your blessings/ They might be your own family or national pride/ Fear and courage are the same coin opposite sides
The horrors of global war the saga of dominion/ Of man over man in his fight over religions/ Over women or the children over land all the killing/ Of the villains is dwarfed by the number of civilian/ Lives lost collateral damage they name the cost/ Impersonal titles help dehumanize the loss/ So we protest wars but keep supporting their cost/ Our tax revenue goes to the war machine boss/ On his gilded horse expensive suit and tie/ Blood money filled briefcase legal at his side/ With the eagle on his side so much evil in his eye/ He cannot see that Palestine suffers apartheid/ So I ride for the freedom of Gaza to this beat/ Uprise on the legions for a peaceful defeat/ My allegiance worn proudly never discreet/ It’s a badge of honor to be with Veterans For Peace
