Sitting on the school bench,
They tell us to choose a path
Its arts or science.
I believe in an equilibrium never adduced
I stand in the grey day by day
Over my head, judges claiming
black and white
Its a supremacy on it’s own
To restrain diversity, as though the human race were an extinct ratio
Beautiful minds out there
But will never reach the top
From the school bench I hear them ask “what went wrong”?
Little did they know,
we blossom under unrestrained growth
Little did they know we utilize by dispensing shares of justice.
secluded refineries will forever be hunted.
Secluding great minds will lead to extinction.
I match the sand
I harmonize with the blue of the sky
I’m water, constantly in flowmotion
Who are you not to see me?
My picturesque patterns,
My vibrant moods
Who are YOU to tune out,
The beat of my racing heart?
You want to feel.
Who are you, to reap the fruits of arduous labour?
Love, I have felt you many times, differently
Delayed, weak and inconsistant
Due to an absorbant mind
I’m inclined to take “Love” as an agent of time.
Love, you come with time
Love, you come in time.
And yes, you might be delayed, weak and inconsistant
But you never go, in as much as “Time” is a constant on earth
Death you go were time isn’t
Death you never come, in as much as “Time” is a constant on earth
Concludingly, time seems to me to be our greatest asset on earth
While knowledge remains our principal, our equity.
You withheld the truth, undermining veracity
How else would I have known the taste of freedom?
Hadn’t I ran off, away from your raving dorm
How was I supposed to know that freedom was free?
When all around me everybody pays with perpetuity
Whatever you have done to my father
Blinded him, disenabling him to seek his root of heritage
Whatever you’ve done to my mother took possession over her guts.
Lamed off your brainwash, they can hardly dance to the rhythme deep within.
A Disconnection you’ve amplified in so many ways, making me an abnormality
It takes a village to raise a child,
I am a product of One.
Standing, eye to eye but you refuse to see me
Tell me, is there no room for us both?
Cause each time I get louder you go silent.
Sworn to you countless times my success could never deminish yours
I tried bringing back the spark, you know?
Thrill, Notion, Seductivity .. Innumerable efforts all futile
What a shame my physique comes with my mind
What a shame integrity is here to stay
Cause when I finally find my voice you disappear
Who taught me the meaning of Love?
how did I learn by heart to care?
To become deligent,
applying due care.
how did I memorize that respect is a substantial value of love
without which, we become negligent?
I ask because today my standards seem foreign to my generation.
Morals I had perceived as communal are rare.
Remind me again who made me alien to my nation?
Didn’t approve of her, flying free
For they feared her team of white wings would disrupt their system.
Brainwash, an act of expurgation.
The man, they phased out his indigenous state.
..Sitting in the dark, he’s leashed
They didn’t want to cut loose the chains,
For they feared his strong, dark, fists will break the system.
If only they hadn’t forgotten this; She already ate the apple
Hence, Their system was bound to fail.
Is life all about competition?
When will we learn to “love thy neighbor”?
To look beyond and seek gold
Not in goldmines but deep within our souls
when will we learn to tolerate,
To put aside disparities
Let Love conquer every quest of harmful incentives
Harm we plot to hurt each other.
I am not envisioning a perfect humanity
However, What my heart desires is to see transformation
What I would love for any nation of this world?
The acknowledgment of severely needed change.
