    I am a prisoner of light
    I have not choice but to stand and fight
    For I am a prisoner of light!
    Dear God
    I am the child of a generation who gave free love
    Planted in the springtime of yesterday
    Birthed on blood soaked battlefields
    Glistening with fallen tears and forgotten souls
    I scream through the fog of smoke
    Left from long hot summers of cities burning across the nation
    I scream for a name!
    I am the nameless child of a generation that clapped thunder
    Flashed lightening with eyes of rebellion
    I am the wildflower of free love
    Give me a name!
    But through streams of heroine and crack cocaine in your veins
    You do not recognize me
    I am the mirror reflection of your soul
    You were my mother, you were my father
    Before you abandoned your cause
    Leaving me in the aftershock of your sonic boom
    To become consumed in darkness
    Blueprints of destruction genetically encoded
    Through the transfusion of your spirit into mine
    Without you Mother Queen and Father King
    To translate your messages of revolution
    My soul revolved in confusion
    When I gave birth it was to a twisted delusion
    I lost your fire and gained Eve’s bane
    The mark set upon me like the descendants of Cain
    My third eye blind with carnality
    Rebirthed into this Earth reality
    To stand upon fallen foundations
    Is this the legacy you left for my generation?
    May I never forgive you for leaving me
    May I never forgive you for this wretched legacy
    May I never forgive you!
    I am a prisoner of light
    I have no choice but to stand a fight
    For I am a prisoner of light
    Dear God
    I am afflicted with visions in the night
    I fear this Inner Light
    The gospel of your truth burns in my spirit
    But ears are too deaf to hear it
    How could I be the voice of a generation?
    Who is nameless and faceless within its own nation
    Upon our birth self worth terminates
    Condemnation abominates and concentrates
    On murdering our souls
    Before fetuses can become whole
    Society stamped and X on Black mother’s wombs
    As they lamented for our impending doom
    Entering the world we are already mourned
    Cradles and caskets adorned
    For we are marked lost
    Preconceived Holocaust
    I will not stand for the further demise of my youth
    Nor hold back the tidal wave of truth
    For the falsehood of hypocrites
    Or tight lipped Devil’s advocates
    I am not the misbegotten
    My name is one that shall not be forgotten
    Cause as I stand this very day and recant your vicious plethora of lies
    I draw on the strength of my ancestors to rise
    I reject your deposits of deceptions
    Replacing them with these weapons
    Truth, Knowledge, and Freedom
    As for your proclamations of false representations
    I don’t need them
    For I am crafted in the image of the true God
    Prepped and shod
    For anything your evil mind can contrive
    But this will never break my stride to strive
    For a complete change of paradigm
    Detonating a 360 degree rotation of the mind
    Called Revolution
    Thus executing Evolution
    Producing the ultimate Soul-ution
    Detoxification of cerebral hemispheres
    Counteracting years and years of
    Negative ramifications
    Due to social frustration
    Castration
    Denigration
    We denounce the fallacies of this nation
    I shall fulfill my soul obligation….
    For I am a prisoner of light
    I have no choice but to stand and fight
    To illuminate the night
    With every word I speak and write
    To edify the mind of man
    To encourage my people to stand
    In the face of adversity
    To inspire the oppressed to be free
    This gift is my life
    I am a prisoner of light!

    Legacy21,
    Thanks for sharing this; this is my type of writing and spirit even tho' i'm from the 50's, 60's and on up to this day; the light is still on.
    i too am a (willing) prisoner of the Light.

    RICH thanks for bringing this back to the fore, there are so many excellent poems and poets on this site that i miss most of them, i'm sure.

    Peace and Blessings
