    sean can't
    see 2 clear cuz sometimes
    people that can't stand the color
    of my tan consider I
    less than a man
    even though I be more
    intellectual...
    more thought excavating than
    these of other persuasions
    most times
    deserved not to him...

    sean be ridiculed because
    he see reali-ty
    as a title placed upon this
    little world of ours
    most people have trouble seeing beyond
    sean
    gets
    ridiculed
    cuz his mind on the outside of the box looking in
    not liking what his mind
    visualize
    without eyes
    yet people have two and can't quite comprehend...

    we on expired life and land
    tresspassers and intruders into
    language and thought yet
    we boast
    clothes
    hoes
    cars
    Lord...
    try not losing us
    through idiotic ****umptions of
    life's purpose
    life hurts us
    and never learns to stop PLAYIN'
    make sean mind fidgety
    and nervous because i see things most cannot
    and worry because
    truth hang over my head and
    swing from left to right in front of EYE*
    still I deny
    blood of the world on my hands...
    while in the interim
    racial profiling is placed on the
    'honorary black race'
    that now wears turbans and was
    never sold into slavery
    or
    extracted from homelands
    or
    fought for equality
    although they have never had peace...

    i want peace.

    within me
    within us

    peace sounds nice.

    I'M SCREAMING AT THE TOPS OF MY LUNGS!!!!!

    but to most...
    i'm just mumbling.*

    Mumbling
    jibberish.

    humble like a mumble in the jungle...
    let your voice riiiiiiiiiiinng out!
    living outside the box is a good thing
    gives you a different spin on this thang
    called life.
