I know we were all created in God’s image
The oppressors say ‘all fingers are not equal’
We believe this from our youth
A well advertised fallacy of composition
How can we be so fooled?
They sold us the drugs
Saying it’s for our recreation
We took in the Kool-Aid
And now we are wasting away
Falling like leaves in Fall
Instead of flourishing like Poets in Autumn
We buy them with our life savings
Now they disenfranchised us as mentally unstable.
They fooled us,
We emptied our accounts
And made them rich
They’ve got the power over us
Now they marginalize us- poor lazy fellow
Took our children away from us
Because we are ‘irresponsible drug-addicts’
Keep them in orphanages
Under the care of some sex-deprived ‘big children’.
Our children are now at their disposal
By the time they grow up
They only want to continue the ‘trade’
That their caretakers taught them
Their uniquely beautiful and priceless bodies
Are now for sale in black market
To our oppressors at a highly discounted rate
Everyday is Black Friday
And our sons? They’re mostly in prison
For using drugs they legalize for our recreation
That’s how they keep us working in cycle.
How can we break out of these circles?
We need a prison break but Michael is dead
Talk of freedom and equality
And you will spend a generation-plus-two behind bars
‘I have a dream’, they killed the King
King maybe be dead but His message
Will forever live on
Till a saviour is raised from amongst us
And we all realize that
We are all made from same image
And start investing in and uplifting one another.
Let’s end this cycle
Love one another
Support the weak
Protect the children
