    Mz.Understood-misenterpreded

    where is the sun?
    in my universe it is desolate...
    i don't need it to cover me
    to bath me...
    to laugh at my existance...

    i like being sown to the dark skies...
    and fixed in between houses,
    and trees that opened their mouths wiiiiiddee to yawn
    and spew out sixty-thousand cus words for being cursed
    to sit still in one place,

    when they want to reap the benfits of gliding
    through the earth...to be free...
    that strech here and there and when and now
    and hold the souls of many
    lost and not yet found
    maybe one day God will scoop them up
    and show them the Way
    discipating the haze that covers
    their faces...

    some eyes dilate thinking of the fresh beads
    of sweat flowing down the brow of slaves
    that till down the hard soil
    and pick cotton that scrape their hands
    and make them bleed...
    till there was only rotting corpes let...

    i would sit and watch the world commit
    haraki* while i can only cry...
    what is the world coming too...

    haraki= Japanese suicide ritual where a person cuts out the abdomen....

    (i know this makes NO sense but its off the top of my head please jus bare wit me)

    Seems like you're saying that you're different, but loving it, and that you feel so strongly about so much, but your hands are tied. Such a talented poet.
