    broken reflections intersections
    that connect left and right brain hemispheres
    to create ways to hide the fear of...self

    blak skin is an affliction to some
    blak women...souls been told lies
    so they try to hide in disguise
    with

    revlon, mac, l'oreal, lancome and the others
    physically lying to the brothers

    eyes contacted with colors unknown to God
    trying to associate with godiva and not oshun
    this **** is unnatural and odd

    hair too **** permed / processed thoughts
    of hate corrupts inner sanctuaries
    can't relate to angela bassett, jada, vivica,
    not even halle berry
    looking to find themselves in between the
    pages of a vogue magazine / bleachin their skin
    to match buttermilk or sour cream...**** near
    clear like micheal jackson...

    but your eyes are portholes to your whole
    your physical and mental...
    showing that you can't even relate to yourself
    so you walk blind until you bump into your true self
    hiding in the corner...

    hair not even loc'd up but your mind is locked up
    until you decide to release it...

    stop running from who you
    are / and your third eye view...
    increase it...

    I am feeling this read!
