    War-torn ghetto provinces housing distant cousins
    Cannot assimilate under oppressive conditions
    Not the least of which is a self-hatred
    So lethal that it chokes the life
    Out of itself combined

    Amidst the revelry of bona-fide conquests
    Self-inflicted daggers find their mark
    Severing ourselves from life's blood
    Relegating brothers and sisters to


    The Thin Black Line :jawdrop:

    We do lines of demarcation

    Put before us by none other

    Than ourselves...

    A troubled people making trouble

    For no good reason other than trouble

    Double trouble burst our bubble ~ time and time again

    Self hatred will have us hanging by a thread very time. Thanks for bringing this back, 1poet, posed on point.
