These Words Are Free

These Words are Free
http://bit.ly/a0qbym

These words are free, so get em while they hot
Cuz if you wait too long you’re gonna miss em when they’re not
These words are me, just in case yo ass forgot
They were lifted from my spirit and they mated with the block

These words can be the seeds that – start a brand new crop
Let them grow within your mind and be immortal in your heart
These words can sting, sometimes they find the mark
That you hide within yourself but I can see it with my art

These words are free, but somebody gotta pay
When the words that others speak can only lead to our decay
How could it be that what we seek has turned into a play
And the actors don’t get paid and they forced to go on stage

We need some better ways but they guide us like we beasts
Not even jungle kings they just treat us like we sheep
I need a better phrase cuz that sheep shit’s gettin old
We’re more like auto-slaves, robots hard and dumb and cold

I hardly can control the rage that fires up my brain
When I see another corporate scheme succeed and we get played
When I see my fucking government treat people like they’re told
Knowing that the ones that told em are the ones that’s in control

Multibillion dollar entities that span our dying globe
That poison our senses and destroy our countries’ souls
But I digress I’m pretty sure you’ve heard these things before
But you probably could care less and think there’s nothing going on

You taking what they give you and accept their words as pure
Don’t you think that makes you less than the whores that you abhor?
I need to take a rest from these thoughts I conjure up
I’d rather smoke and sex but somebody must report

We in a global crisis that’s defined by the prices
How much does it cost to keep a population lifeless
How much for divorce from this all consuming tightness
How much must we lose before think it’s time to fight this?

These words are free, so get em while they hot
Cuz if you wait too long you’re gonna miss em when they’re not
These words are me, just in case yo ass forgot
They were lifted from my spirit and they mated with the block

These words can be the seeds that – start a brand new crop
Let them grow within your mind and be immortal in your heart
These words can sting, sometimes they find the mark
That you hide within yourself but I can see it with my art

Phoenix I

Phoenix I

http://bit.ly/CRcWH

Fastest, the horse of time
That races nose-to-nose with I
The first to cross that finish line?
Pre ordained

I re define

Myself to host my dream’s desires
I quote my hopes from childish rhymes

“I wish I may, I wish I might”
I said that night beneath your skies

Dissolved into my base components
Sub atomic part’s divulgence
We are all the same

But motion causes things to change

I wither on this page of rage
Passive though it may be
I quiver from the strangest things
Like your aura passing me

Within this brick and mortar maze
Of lives lived tragically
Salvation graced my inner gaze
She sassed me frankly, stole my aim

And asked succinctly
“Who’s to blame?”
“Not I,” said I
To my own shame

Its vision summarily blurred
My future died years ago
My past has passed away and now
My ego lives in word

My id has underlined my brain
Crossed my t’s and dotted i’s
Teacher to my heart and pain

It instructs my nerves to conduct my frame
To power legs to walk past cries
Of help and hurt and all that’s sane
Or considered such by those that lie

I think of self, leave all behind

This is my day and age
For me to live my life
Selfish you may say
But I have quite too often tried
To do the things your way
So today I die, reborn in flames

Phoenix I

Don’t know why, but I’m getting a ton of unexpected traffic on this old poem of mines – I’ve actually rewritten the poem (but I never updated it on the site) – the weird thing is all this traffic is coming from India :/ I have no idea why.

Apparently, if you were a prominent black writer between 1919 and 1972…the FBI were watching. Not just watching, but filing hundreds of pages of information about you :/ Looks like a professor got all of these files through the Freedom of Information Act and put together this site.
