Truth

How can you look at what is happening,
And then run to your alternative facts?
You need to wake up from your fake napping,
And look at the ways your argument cracks.
The heat is not going to disappear
Based on what you perceive, wish and hope.
There is a right group of people to hear,
You left behind to listen to a dope.
You may want to crawl out of that pocket,
And grow up to be the size of a man;
You will see the future and protect it;
Instead of grabbing what money you can.
Will you continue to live with your greed
While watching the land of the nation bleed?

The River Jordan

I dreamt last night of the River Jordan,
And being there I’d finally found peace.
Being on its banks went against the plan,
But when time is something we only lease,
We have to make the most of what’s given.
If we have been sold on a new future,
But the lie is what we have been livin’,
We should not give into the indenture.
I may have to cross over the border,
Embracing the life of a refugee,
To live in a land free of disorder
That allows the chance for me to be me.
I will sink my toes deeper in the mud
Waiting to engage in this river’s flood.
