Mental Rush - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
...and here we are once again!
With the issue of race,
Subjecting the color of one's skin!
Hasn't this been repeated,
Throughout a history depleted
Of self reflection?
Insecurities of a lack of pigmentation...
Has created an inner hate.
To satiate an inflated,
Degraded sensation baited!
They can not set themselves free?
This time around,
Those excuses will not be used to compound,
The reality that comes to further confuse
An abused mentality!
The angels that are here,
Do not appear
To have come to quench their thirst on our anguish!
It has been made clear to them
Our minds need adjusting,
From the destructive stuff!
By lifting our minds,
To heighten a consciousness
none of us can touch!
for a mental rush!
