Inside her soul: echoes

Inside her soul: echoes

April 18, 2010

i see
me
enslaved prophet
trying to silence
the echoes of past
and i see MAD MEN
performing their ceremonial dance
calling for me
i see
ill manifestations
systemic revelations
colonization giving birth to my nations
can’t he see that HIS savage love
tarnishes me
skin of my skin
breath of my breath
filled with water COLORED dreams
my heart bleeds
consecrated seeds
burdened by deceit and greed
baptized into submission
conforming my vision
sometimes i feel there is noting left of me
i need water to purge me
from his capitalistic system of depravity
aflame with indignation
fire and damnation
refusing to serve HIS gods of war
shackled and torn
clothes tattered and worn
and my MAN wonder why
I don’t love him no more?
