    A system that fails me
    Splits us in two
    Yes...
    It divides
    Our brotherhood

    Like Baby Ruth
    Can rot a tooth
    Assailing me...
    That John Wilkes Booth

    Enslaving freedom
    The way we do ~
    Crucified,
    I bleed
    The mighty god in you

    It's puzzling...
    No lie it's true
    Baby in a manger
    Won't you come to save us

    Fooling you,
    Into a life of poo,
    Killing like a cancer
    Begging for an answer

    Yes the system thrives on dividing and conquering. Keep these flows coming, on point.

    For the eyes of 1poetsought

    1poetsought, hurls a stone in the water, I see the ripples walk toward the shore.
    I reach in to touch his flow, upon my hand truth drips drop by drop, his words i can't ignore.
    Beauty can be as simply as skin or as complex as a smile, but this poem here
    tresure to my eyes
    Because it is truth disrobed, naked, standing in confidence, it is truth not wearing a disguise!



    1poetsought, seize the day
    Great poem you have made!
