Letter by letter 

It will all seem right 

a fight

good vs evil

love vs hate

right vs wrong

speech vs speech

slowly and unaware

a single letter taken away

until the word is completely gone

no longer able to write or express.

line by line the sentence will be gone

no longer able to express a full thought 

no longer able to say what you feel for fear of being

reprimanded 

labeled

not all that appears good is good.

So it has begun,

Facebook an extended hand of the 

government 

has taken the role of God to determine for us,

what is hate and what hate isn’t 

what words are disruptive and promote hate and what words do not

and we applaud this completely unaware 

the speech okay today will be deemed hateful tomorrow.

remember this, 

lette b lette unti th wor is gon 

an th though kno long exis

Becoming what you hate

We are all very capable of becoming the thing we hate,what has oppressed 

enslaved 

mistreated 

colonized 

conformed us. 

To think ourselves as not being capable would place us in a position of thinking ourselves to be superior to another in human nature.

Are we not all capable of possessing 

racists 

separatists 

capitalist 

corporatist 

neocon 

nationalist beliefs 

views

words 

books

materials 

that promote our plight rather then get to the root,

for a mans heart cannot be legislated 

nor can we eradicate the ills of a mind,

if one can not clearly see how easily one can become the nature preached against. 

All are capable of holding their own evils no matter,

the culture 

color 

social

or

economic standing.

Can one give retribution if one has not committed the act? 

If yes, what would make your fight more just?

have you not just become the demand once placed on you, 

a demand unjust and hated,

a demand to produce

even though you’ve committed no personal wrong?

Are we not all capable of becoming the system we eagerly oppose and denounce as unjust.

The superiority we despise we slowly become. 

The human nature has many denials unpacked, 

we can deny what we can become because we think we are better,

but 

it will not change the truth,

we have become unjust.

One word 

can set a forest a blaze

burn through historical facts

turn angels into demons 

demons into angels 

men/women to fools

pitiful creatures grasping at straws

fighting the symptoms but never the root. 

To deny what one can become 

is to deny your own human nature 

you will therefore,

unaware, 

become what you hate. 

Americas dying empire 

To apathetic to see

this country slowly dying.

Some say rightful so,

racket of war

bringing another to their knees.

Is it right to force a system on a culture of which we have little understanding of to prop up 

and preserve our own?

To tell another how to live 

when we are being spun into chaos 

slowly decaying from within.

The “democracy” we have cast into the waters has returned poisoned upon our shores,

obesity-global starvation 

abundance of food-global famines

mass incarcerations to meet quotas 

oppression for races.

How can a country drowning in its own “democracy” save another?

Lies excepted as truth 

Equality brings inequality 

Unity has created hatred 

Oppression of social classes and anyone who dares speak against the masses burn

fascism in hoods and masks 

with or without borders walk the streets unredeemed.

When a countries land is poisoned it can not offer to another herbs of redemption rather both will die drinking from the same tainted cup,

eating from the table of “democracy”the crumbs of an empire dying.

So who then can we save if we ourselves are drowning in our own illusions.

A country 

A country unable to see its own disease 

can not bring democracy nor peace, 

rather spread its own illness

through

more schools for less education

homeless shelters to call home

history lessons without history

pens afraid to write of darkness.

Blood for oil 

stains our,

streets 

homes

hospitals 

hollywood 

music 

nightclubs 

shiny things

created poverty 

truth 

politicians 
uniforms

guns

planes 

bombs

democracy.

The maddows of this country will stop at nothing to justify self serving laws 

spewing hatred 

progandas as they try desperately to hold the tent of the circus together 

lest we see

the diseases destroying this country 

minds of the young 

eyes unable to see

a flag stained with death.

Gods in a bottle

I apologize, some have told me they are unable to read this piece through the link I provided. Here is the prose. 

Pharmaceutical companies

erected like gods

to manage the masses

never the,

sickness

pain

trauma

addiction

hunger,

sleepless nights

stress

on the streets

society bleeds hopelessness through a needle.

Minds held hostage by a pill,

unable to think

there’s an app for that

overdosed

prayers come in milligrams and doses,

dazed,

unable to see inner cities burning

neighborhoods crumbling

children searching for a drug to make life bearable,

numb

remedies

dark

cold

empty,

Wars on drugs

ushered in the need for higher doses?

Solutions sold for gods in a bottle.
