    Behind
    plastic smiles
    and over-bright
    glances,
    I'm stuck behind
    this cement wall
    that is still transparent,
    but impassable.
    I by confusion's stream
    drinking the bitter water
    to stay alive.
    For the night I lie
    on the bank of subconscious
    bathing in moon's glow of self-doubt.
    Sleeping under a sheet of
    Insecurities I rest uncomfortably, but
    I try and 'rest' anyways.
    What is this that I'm experiencing?
    I could just hide myself in eternity,
    where I can't be seen by anyone or have to
    live up to the expectations of anyone.
    Living in a box of compatible society.
    Everything is alike and everywhere
    I look, i'm confronted with my lookalike's in
    and at the end.
    I'm the only one with a nagging in
    my cranial region.
    Its like some legion on my being,
    begging to be lanced.
    I try to dig for the strength to get from
    under these varies pretences.
    I prepare to jump the fences and
    run across the expansive fields of individuality.
    I escape and find solace under some shade of
    the tree of free.
    Man, I'm tired and out of breath,
    but there is no guilt yet, no repression or
    personality theft.
    I embrace my individuality, my afrocentricity;
    I am reborn as the child of eccentricty infused
    with distinctiveness and power from pure
    divinity.
    From behind the cement wall, I flow stream-like
    from my dreams to a state of free.
