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.

Pied piper

Pied piper…
From birth to grave 

for centuries elitists

condemn what they create,

privilege for skin color

wars

colonization

cleansing

illusions of democracy 

poverty 

drugs

culture isolations

hatred,

race baiting,

would you have known you were black unless they told you?

would I have seen color unless they told me what that was?

Would I have known I was white unless they told me?

Would you have known I was white unless they told you I was?

Definitions of 

color

races 

cultures

given meaning through 

planted seeds

words

movies 

newspapers 

music

education.

Minds

emotions saturated with 

still images

birth divisions 

through narratives 

hysteria has way

separated by bait

no longer facts 

hatred erodes 

educated with memes 

fear them

feel this

think this

talk this way 

see them this way

follow for I know what 

color

race

culture 

war

poverty 

privilege for skin color is

we designed the system but 

hate one another for this 

give life to this systems creation

So,

From birth to grave elitists

have their way 

for new

color wars

culture wars

colonization wars

religious wars

drug wars

poverty wars

education wars

wage wars

privilege wars

hunger wars

humanities self inflicted wars against humanity itself

brought to you by self appointed Demi Gods.

Rich and working poor

Rich and working poor..

You should know them,

they created your poor

Life

income

abilities

advantages 

raises 

money divides. 

Death is the equality,

cries will sound the same.  

Neither will have enough to survive, 

to buy life from a grave.  

The questions will be greater at the end than through out life itself.  

Men and women in their endeavors for equal rights separate humanity,

they will never be equal to the working poor’s 

paycheck to paycheck 

a day away from unemployed 

beggars 

echoes of hunger. 

The poor are the riches illness

burden

thorn

reminder 

Of their own hearts 

disease 

desire 

failures

truth

lies

fears

class survival.

For self preservation 

War beginsnot with skin, 

age 

culture 

gender 

fact.

Guns of war

stir from threats by anything unlike it self,

blood on the hands of women and men 

for survival,

of race

colors

goods

lands 

entitlements 

gods. 

Streets of democracy decaying 

for self preservation.

Streets of gold paved with the cries of the innocent.

Lies of the elect have brought us to,

hatred,

divisions,

crumbling societies 

structures no longer erect

wars in silence 

justify death.
