    with each twist comes the tongue tied
    arrogance of a western third world,
    will we forever surrender to this animocity
    of one human being to another?
    i flow with words, i can't say words of truth
    because every victim is a liar suffering
    with people shouting "POWER" then
    turn around and feed off the plates of
    luxury.

    my molding cream molds in
    the faces of all those sisters in poverty and
    my brothaz on the wagon... again.
    like my father, i never thought i was apart of
    religion until like a hypocrite, i found
    myself saying glory hallelujah at the altar..
    they say you'll never get to heaven if you
    lie but that in itself is... a lie.
    how can the kettle call the pot black when
    the pot is a metallic stainless steel?

    stainless in terms of we will never be
    stained by the sauces of society, i don't know,
    maybe i don't make sense when i write
    but it's true that expression is just your two cents worth
    of life and this: this is my 50 cents spent to make
    you realise, that dreadlock ain't got no colour, just the twists...
    that get you caught up in the tangles and thorns,
    of your miserable lives.

    hey family, i'm feeling like a stranger, and it's wrong so i'm sharing and will try to keep up!
    much love all of you!

    Instead of getting caught in a lie, time to start getting caught up in the truth. You seem to like giving your reader something to ponder, and I like that. Nice to read somethin new from you.

    word

    I loved the vibe that came across here

    it was therapeutic to the afrocentric spirit

    it was powerful enough to be BOLD

    and soft enough to subtly kiss away any reservations

    Props poet :)
