! ! ! ! ! Internal Bleeding! ! ! ! ! - Poem by Leland Wright

The things I've seen in life will make you choke by surprise
Like an aborted fetus in a jar that opened it's eyes
Provoking my demise, I'll leave your spirit broken inside
Like the feeling of fifty million people hoping you'd die
And wondering why my heart is filled of hatred and anger
Cause someone killed my first soul with a coat hanger
I strangled out the pain until my soul was empty and cold
Crippled and worthless, so I thought that it could never be sold
My mother told me that placing my faith in God was the answer
Then I hated God cause my grandpa death felt worse than cancer
That is just speculation because I couldn’t taser myself with patience
While the world is still complacent with war and racists
And this is prophecy; the words that I speak from my lungs
Are the ashes of God’s disciple’s speaking in tongues

I was chosen to speak the words of the ancestors of African slaves
The ones that endure punishment to have our freedom today
Tortured, buried, and frozen written out of the history books
Kids mistook this as a boring past artifact, brains dumb flooded
With ignorance, children are internally bleeding and cold blooded
Stripped of emotion, I go through the motions, but there's no life in these eyes
Like a dead baby in a woman’s womb, who drops a final tear from its eye
I’m near death because I wasn’t sent to give out the entire message
Just was here to kick some knowledge to ignorant peasants
Who treats themselves like a peasant, and I seem so aggressive
I see a lot potential in all my friends and foes soul
Every time I see them they livid, growing out of their sock toes
Mentality they stay confine in their own safe box
Hoping they will be given a chance, watching that clock
Must reach for your goals stop treating your time like a parking toll watch

In my execution, producing thoughts at the speed of light
Burning confusion, I'm loosing my sight, breathing is tight
The evening is white; I made my peace with the Lord
Standing on his right side, above heavens gate doors
Watching earths bloody tide, while on heavens tour

These are my last words, I'm having difficultly breathing
Dying in the inside, where my gem lies, internally bleeding
Angel of death dragging me away while I'm sleeping…riding on a bike
Watching the world crumble in front of me, searching for…the meaning of life
