    why can't something new,
    be made?

    why are the rough looking assumed,
    not well behaved?

    has society sneaked in our systems,
    and planted a chip?

    that informs us that there is nothing more,
    to what there now is?

    can we be taken over,
    by the society--that society has created?

    for it lived beyond our knowing,
    telling the boss man-it was wrong for colored folks to be emancipated.

    the wrong side of right,
    is wronger than we thought.

    for society is where,
    all of everyone's mind is caught.

    if a naked person walked down the street,
    they're assumed freaks or lunatics.

    is that all we can think of,
    nasty-perverted feminine parts and mens d*cks?

    think outside the box they say,
    but society says go ahead---we have a box further out.

    cuz everytime we strive to do different,
    society conjuers up doubt.

    and we tell ourselves that it would be better,
    to stay where we're put.

    well--------we might as well open our mouths,
    cuz here comes our foot.

    we change our decisions,
    and think we have the answer.

    but quickly change it,
    when we hear society's laughter.

    society isn't the community,
    it's the people.

    but don't put them on the same page,
    cuz they're not equal.


    we should think for ourselves,
    recieve advice-take it wisely-that's the key.

    instead of leaving all the thinking,
    up to our "precious" society.............









    don't judge,
    love.
    don't hate,
    just wait.
    for all hate will do,
    is consume you.

    I hear ya poet. Some unfortunately drink in all that society thinks of us, and act just like we are said to act. I liked the way you brought this.

    Very thought-provoking and conscious piece. If u will allow me to....society is the group of people that puts the rules or "system" in place. And the human society is an old old old society...and you're right society today is not the people of today, at least not a good representation, however we continue with their old old old rules and systems....I'm helping to bring something new new new to this old old old way of doing things....keep bringing the knowledge and fire

    I LOVED THIS ONE!!!
