    Being from the islands, im used to a very simple way of life.
    now that i have moved to the USof A. It is a culture shock.



    They are day workers
    working from the rising
    of the sun
    to the setting of another.
    Doing what they have done for ages
    their fathers, father father's,
    fathers father fathers.
    They donot understand the new me
    i have morphed into something unknown
    i have crossed boundaries impossible
    and seen sights unseen.
    i am despised and hated for my worldiness
    My knowledge, my new sophistication, my new mind
    is no good to me there.
    i am not to be trusted.
    i have gone beyond expectation
    become " too smart for my own good"
    I am an outcast, a pariah
    a thing to be feared.
    i have become the unthinkable
    i have become Educated
    i am no longer worthy of their counsel
    i must fend for my self
    my dreams cannot be shared
    only percieved mentally
    i am to be regarded as 'TRAITOR, FOOL"
    WHY?
    because i have dreams
    because i have aspirations
    because my thoughts and desire spans
    outside the 120x70km on which i live.
    HA!
    HA!
    HA!
    HA!
    You self righteous fools
    dont you see what You have become
    footstools to a mentality
    that binds you to your poverty
    slavery has been dead for years!
    they only slavery is the one u have cast upon yourself.
    walking around with your "yes Massa" attitude
    where has it gotten you?
    HA!
    I no longer choose to live like this
    I no longer let you define me
    laugh all you want
    my mental rape is over
    i have begun the healing process.
    I have morphed
    i have become life oriented.

    no flavaful
    there's nothing wrong with you
    it's people are hypnotized and they don't know it
    and someone like you can see thru the bull
    is call an outcast

    just be you
    don't follow the crowd if they are going somewhere you don't like
    do wany you like to do
    not what other people expect you to do

    do this other people you concern yourself with, do they help pay your bills?
