    I keep asking my self y
    y
    y
    y do we
    how can we
    mess up over and over
    and blame others for our disbelief
    our misfortune
    our empty pockets
    our full jails
    think
    who occupies the power to improve ones community
    self
    so y do we depend on others
    false guidance to otherwise
    lead us to hell
    we give in to temptation
    because we r to weak to walk away
    we give in to "compromises"
    to good judgment
    because we r to weak minded to continue to fight
    we let our fears control our destiny
    and will power to succeed
    instead using it as determination to proceed
    and change reality
    y
    i keep saying to myself and others
    who take the time to converse
    about our peoples misfortunes
    realizing that we r causing our problems
    therefore only we can change them
    we need to slide back to the past
    the 60's
    when sncc was alive
    and strong leading the revolution
    the movement to gain and conquer wrong
    we need to collectively agree on somin’
    even if we r wrong
    unity is the answer to all the divide questions that arise in our "democracy"
    we yell and scream about the evils we put in office
    but do nothing to rid this country of the bush it hides behind
    how bout we wake up
    take action
    demand change
    demand
    somin
    instead of sitting on our ***
    when all we do is complain about **** that could be
    should be
    but isn't
    b/c we don’t fight​
