'AMERIQA UNWRITTEN' (violence, war, rape)

Featured Posts

i recently wrote this piece and it means alot to me, it flows in many different directions and can be taken in many ways. It uses poetry and war as one huge metaphor and sets the base of this fairly large poem. but it basically shines light on how disgusted and done i am with the world (not just america) but the world as a whole. It really means alot to me and i love sharing my work with people so tell me what you think.

 

 

AMERIQA 

 

I’d pray that my words would echo
In the minds of all the young poets
To free the souls and emotions
Of the kids too afraid to show it

 

And even if just for a minute
They can seek truths from within
To pick up a pen and paper
And write how they’re really feeling

 

And even if just for a moment
They can spark power within themselves
To dream and endure their passions
And not mold into somebody else

 

My divine plan from the beginning
Was to change the world from the start
But who am I to imagine,
I’d have an impact with my own art?

 

And to whom that may find it shocking
That I write about violence and rape
-I’d just step in the shoes of my others,
And conquer their minds so they can relate

 

And even if just for a second
They can dream up a world in their mind
Where wars aren’t the prime of America
And all violence is soon left behind

 

I see humans that lack of humanity
That speak loudest with bombs and guns
But when men from both sides lay dying
Tell me who really has won?

 

I refuse to stand tall for the pledge
Cuz allegiance is what we all lack
We take pride in the wars that we fund
And the blood that clogs pavement cracks

 

I may not walk on the enemies soil
Or bare a gun on their righteous homeland
But if we are so scared of these ‘terrorists’
Imagine what they think of us man,

 

Who bare the colors of our flag
Take pride in the red white and blue
With machine guns strapped their backs
And trigger happy packs of troops

 

I love this nation to an extent
But the actions we take aren’t true,
To humanity and and the lives of people
Who in reality are no different than you

 

Cuz every life taken out of divergence
Is another family ripped apart
Taken from homes and their children
With no goodbyes when they finally depart

 

Is it all really necessary?
The violence that fuels the hate
Can’t we just appreciate diversity
And mind the business of our own state
