    From the instill dawn
    my voice linger down
    people of venture i know
    sleepin hollow cry in da
    city streets lost on the
    imagery loop of life
    people struggle in the
    grassroot
    thy harvest bloom in
    constructive grain
    feeding the souls of hunger
    the destructive people
    lavish in hope a method of
    designed temperment
    we become
    people vs people

    Is the destruction of others necessary as one claws one's way up? Does someone else always have to be the scapegoat? Thoughts to ponder, flow on brotha.

    under structure
    a vision captured
    through da voice
    words heard yet
    defined differently
    forth out of agreement
    many dis approval in
    disagreement is when
    we become
    people vs people

    Thankz for the visit inside my mental shaz

    Very insightful poem. Something that questions what has seemed to now be ordinary, and acceptable "people vs. people" I really liked this one. :)

    Word up! This is profound in its truth, and so beautifully laid.
