Poetic Monday: Sail Your Soul

 

Sail Your Soul

Cameron King

 

Go and obey the laws of your land which are unwritten but merely transmitted as subliminal waves of the media through which you absorb it's angled perspective

 

For we are vibrational beings and the currents endured by our brothers and sisters are only amplified by blue soldiers and suppressed by those who do not emit screams from red and white terror

 

Silenced suppressed and starving of freedom that tastes so sweet you can't believe it's not butter

 

But when we scream black lives matter the hashtag becomes a ball and chain of exclusivity where one inserts their contrary to popular beliefs and deletes opposing opinions off of Facebook and Twitter feeds

 

Where political corrected-mess and borderline racism intertwines throughout the World Wide Web into a nest that rests on the necks and breaks the backs of the descendants that created this country

 

Where boxer braids and booties can be packaged and shipped off designer clothes and handbags can be ripped off even the classiest Dame with the highest IQ can be bought off

 

Be educated but don't ignore your blackness

Be polite and don't get too loud

Be silent while your people are bred to be killed

Be silent

 

Go and obey the laws of your land

I will not be silent because though I'm tryna let my soul set sail

My soul is not for sale
