writing to survive

When no one was listening

he was writing into the doubt, frustration, thunder and shame

the hardest story to tell is that of your own
too much reflection

too much pain
the space between humbly letting truth speak for itself

and when to scream cause they refuse to speak the truth

Hope in the Dream

I wonder this city at night
Daring her to swallow me up.
Worse than dope
I believed
Anyone could achieve
Dreamed the dream
of America land of opportunity
So naive
had the audacity to hope in this system
If I just work hard enough
Stand up straight
Always on time
Make white people comfortable
read the right books 
Answer every question
Laugh at the right jokes
Never point out American equality….the obvious hoax
success or at least stability would be mine
But the game is rigged
I could do that every day for the rest of my life 
and still hand to mouth live.
Here’s to another day hustling in the Chi City
unable to fake the funk and escape this American Nightmare.
