A call to unity

They disunite us, we conquer and reduce ourselves.

Stomach of pleasures

A time cultivating poverty

of the spirit,

the flesh hungers for more that is of temporary fulfillment,

filling the stomach of pleasures made from old stone.

Religions of the wind,

the dead of spirit rise to claim life

gasping from artificial breath,

spewing amens from dead bowels,

the withered hand has fallen

to unjust knees,

cultivating death to the just and life to the unjustly.

In this world

“You can not fix a problem if you don’t first understand how the problem was created.” -bt

In world such as this:

A world that judges a person by the color of their skin,

be the person who judges the character.

A world that desires conformity to new social constructs,

be the person who desires each live free from conformity,

be a nonconformist giving people the right to live and face their own consequences.

A world that shuns non linear healing,

be the person who seeks the root of the disease not bandaging symptoms.

A world that desires each person conform to the new godless religion of rulers,

be the person who desires each person be given the freedom to believe as they choose.

A world that seeks retribution off the backs of the working class/poor,

be the person who seeks to help them loosen the gold plated chains.

A world full of chaos,

be the calm.

A world full of anger,

be the peace.

A world full of unforgiving retaliations,

be forgiveness.

Forgiveness isn’t about the other person but about you, and freeing the mind and spirit from a cancerous bitterness. Forgiving allows the doer of the unjust act to face a personal consequence and bring forth lessons.

Forgiving doesn’t mean a person can’t stand against what’s unjust

rather,

requires a stand,

the difference is you stand justly.

A world that generalizes all people no matter color or beliefs,

be the person who sees the individual.

A world that only sees cells made with steel bars,

be the person who understands that not all steel bars are visible. Demanding others think and feel as you do, creates individual solidarity confinements.

Be the person who desires freedom of thought.

Spartacus wannabes

Bull*** I am Spartacus wannabes…

This is supposed to be about we the people

not we the ruling classes.

This isn’t about doing what’s right but has become about taking any issue trending and using that to sway for votes and power.

This is about regaining power, gaining the majority in the house so one party can rule over the other.

Both political parties are looking for their “I am Spartacus” moments, using the accused and the accuser.

Gropers speaking out against the accused…really?!

All the sudden everyone gives a crap about corruption, corruption both parties have lived off of for years and both have created.

All the sudden everyone gives a crap about sexual assault/abuse within powerful circles and yet every single one of them have swept years of abuse under the rug but now everyone wants to be Spartacus and speak out against abuse.

All of the sudden everyone gives a crap about the corruption and injustice that has destroyed the lives of many Americans and created a new class of working poor, any injustices committed towards ppl of color and how all these politicians are sick of it?!

They only care now because it is affecting their power.

They are now speaking out against tribalism, a tribalism they created.

Empty booths

Empty booths

We will remain willfully blind although we see.

We will remain willfully deaf although we hear.

We will remain willfully ignorant although we can choose to think.

We will treat political parties like gods.

What if you and I understood, the political parties use us for themselves.

Many Americans have been driven into poverty although they work,

struggling to keep their homes,

live out of their cars,

rent rooms because having an apartment has now become an American dream.

Americans work harder and have less to spend and support themselves.

Americans have been brought systematically to living a life of a hustler.

How many politicians have been driven into poverty although they work?

How many politicians have taken a pay cut or have lost bonuses?

How many politicians are losing their homes, unable to retire, have experienced stagnant wages and have to live out of their cars?

How many politicians have to shower in a public restroom before work?

How many politicians have had to carry the same healthcare that you and I have, how many are unable to afford their medications?

How many politicians have lived under their own polices and how many have been exempt?

We will vote in November for a group of men/women and no matter the color, will live above you and I, will continue to make policies that they will be exempt from, their wages will rise, retirement packages their whole families will live off of and that will be from our vote.

We will vote in November,

we will fight one each other over who the lesser of the two evils are.

We will walk into the voting booths and walk out with the same struggles.

What if no one showed up.

Every voting booth empty.

What if we chose no one and demanded more?

Why do we feel we have to remain democratic or republican?

Why do we keep voting against ourselves?
