Peacefully drawing blood,
shed between mounds of flesh
eyes wide open shut, while babies are laid to rest.
Liberated with rioting uproar
medicated influence doctrinated into educated
bullets laced with lies to cut ties dispensing
substances infused with poisoned truth
sealing your mind in a haze to remind
you that time that you were truly WOKE.
Restlessly sleep walking close to the flame
not ashamed of the slurred speeches
increased to make you seep into drunkenness
restrained demented exploits of remorsefully
unobtained pieces of the peace
sawed and clawed gently erasing tearful pleas
of yesterday’s mistake of sensitivity
entangled with compassion, with a flake of empathy
Useless because I’m FULLY WOKE
My generation; he, no she, no it, no me!
self-love plastered on every reflection
hiding all imperfection, contoured and contorted
vigorously hiding me for all to see
all lives matter until your life, means me.
Racing to erase our identity of history
slowing down any hindrance of progress
to the edge of madness fragmented into
tolerance folded into love vomiting abomination
sliding into hell’s gate but wait! stay woke!
