I am just a grain of sand.
I am no one special; no special talent
With a Hidden Agenda
I speak from the hearts, and confess what mind supressess.
One question: How much longer will hate win?
Two Questions: How much longer shall our children suffer?
Three Questions: When is it ok to hate? When Is it okay to withdraw my love, and hold what’s left and sacred deep within my heart?
Are all men not created equal? Are we not your creations, and you our creator? Is your voice that which shakes the oceans, howls the wind; ceases tripidatious storms, makes the sun shine; fresh dew drops on each leaf, and a cool breeze?
Are you this God I speak of? Are you this God I’ve read about, dreamed about and desire?
I just speak from the hearts of my people.
When will the spread of innocent blood on our streets end?
Lady Justice, why are your eyes still covered? Lady Justice do you hear the screams from the grave, from the prevalence of injustice and shouts from the living shouting and not being heard, and when silent they are then accused. Lady Justice, when will you put an end to this?
If my skin is not white as snow, and eyes blue as the sky, my voice is limited, my life is non equivalent, my rights are non existent, but my money is appreciated. Lady Justice you’ve helped the 1% and failed the public. Were your slaves, working for dimes and pennies while you shit gold and your urine flows out diamonds; at our, the public, the other 99% expense.
I walk around with an empty stomach, while your latte is $7 bucks. I’m visible during the holidays, but 352 days a year, my face is invisible. I’m hungry, will you feed me. My child is malnutrition, will you feed them.
We attend church to pray and worship an invisible God with the hope of tangible and miraculous answers. So we grip faith with our lingering, cavity and plaque filled teeth.
Does anyone hear me? Does anyone see me? Am I relevant? Am I a person; human being? Does my blood no longer shed red? Does my heart no longer matters?
To ignore my cries, and cover your stains you medicate me. Ativan, Prozac, Xanax, Morphine, and Oxycotin. Now I’m addicted and to fix it I’m not relying on Methadone and treated like a criminal when in reality I’m your scientific experiment (me) went wrong.
Oh God, do you see my arms? Oh God, do you hear your people desperate of a savior a new home? Oh God, show yourself! NO longer be silent. I hear the chaos, when I need to hear your peace and feel your love.
One thing that remains
One thing that’s the same
The Rich and Poor alike
The healthy and sick alike
The Mentally Ill and Addict alike
We all have a void, an empty presence
We all have questions and no answers
We all bleed red, and we’re running out of band aids
We all crave like a drug
We all feel empty at the end of each day
Crave that gun, but we know there’s not bullets
We crave a God, a creator, a universal presence
Not to fix problems
But to give the Earth, your Bride a hug
We crave God, and his voice
We are like children throwing a tantrum, yelling “look at me; look at me”
And hoping for a father, to open his arms
Lift us up, and embrace us
To feel safe once again
To know that and comprehend the words “i love you, my beloved”
To be tucked in bed
And provided a nights rest
Trials and Tribulations won’t stop, hunger won’t end, poverty wont end
Until the day Jesus returns
So we must endure like a good soldier, thankful for our journey; for it pushes us closer to HIM
In HIM we ARE
In us is HIM
We are with HIM until the end and beyond the timing of man
May God be with us.
