Divided We Fall

I thought it was a smile. Unfortunately, it was a smirk. He could not picture the positive. All he could see was a man’s flaws. To be buried was not enough. What he needed was to stand atop the grave. His good fortune could come at the price of humanity. Unconscious. No conscience. Divided we fall. Forever stagnated, until we stop mistaking the bottom for the top. He’s sooo ‘hood that he desires for no one to rise above it.

Who am I? Only a tool to assist in the awakening of a people. Life’s frivolity, I want no parts of, neither do I want it for our people. My claims are never that of a creator, simply one who honors and cherishes a cause, the cause. With it running like Usain Bolt when the baton was passed, the years of ‘hood celebrity determining my masculinity are no more. Today my deepest aspirations contain Martin’s dream and Malcolm’s ideology.

I surmise a little light can be blinding, just as when it is dark you can see who is truly there.

I fare you well.
