    i've been holding this feeling at bay
    until this day i feel like a ray
    from the sun
    to the earth's clay

    everything in between means little to me
    why? because of what people did to me
    my own mother asking people "who is he?"

    i feel like a mutated gene of bacteria
    now i am a virus in your interior
    breaking down all those who feel superior

    you question me as i prepare deliverance
    your ignorance now causes pillages
    huh, you thought you were militant

    all i wanted was to want to go home
    to the place where the buffalo roam
    back to the blackest chromosome

    you look at me with a hatred and i used to cower
    now, i absorb all of that power
    and then i await the divine hour

    if one color means the world to me it would be yellow
    like the bright sun on rose petals
    or like old gold... mellow

    this same color shows my anger, frustration, and madness
    but, someone has stolen my sun and it's replaced with sadness
    magic how the tables turn forward and backwards

    but, dam im mad as hell and happy heaven knows
    heaven glows, heaven shows, heavenly destiny goes
    on and on i suppose...

    OUCH! i just hit my big toe!
    and i'm mad at the maker of this ol'...
    this ol'... dresser full of these clothes

    i'm mad at the world today until this pain goes away
    at least while i'm aching my mind won't stray
    say, is that a blue jay singing so gay

    a yellowhammer and a red robin flies by
    right now i want to laugh, curse, and cry
    mixed emotions, mixed up as i

    DAM IM MAD

I think my whole life I have had nothing but mixed feelings about everything...from what to put on to what to take off if you get my drift. Lol! But I really do understand where ya coming from. Nice real nice!!!

    Anger can bring forth such conflicting feelings. Your words conveyed those feelings so well, poet.
