I didn’t start out in a boat, or somewhere in your fields. I started before the pyramids.
I know that the system was never broken but always built this way. But tell yourself that this is the land of the free for everyone.
I create music from cries, poetry from silence, and beauty from pain because my capacity to see more deeply was a survival gift passed down from a time before any of this small world even existed.
Tell yourself that my children being gunned down in your streets is just law and order and it wouldn’t be happening if those thugs just followed the law.
