For My PeopleAs far as I can recall:For My People by WordOfChen
I did not ask to be birthed
Into a cycle of stagnation.
I did not ask to be told,
That my dreams are achievable;
Only to see them limited by the scope of reality.
I did not ask for a failing system,
Passed unto me by half-dead corpses wearing suits.
Nodding eagerly at one another,
As they wait for an inevitable death.
This I did not ask for,
And I am certain that most of you did not either.
But it is for that reason,
And for that reason alone, I say:
That it is up to us,
We siblings bound by the chains of our forefathers,
To create a system that is better,
Than the bitter shackles of the past.
Justice is what I long for.
Justice for MY people.
Re-creationRe-creation by DreamsDeprived
The nothingness that once reigned
Ignited in colors
The shades of depression rearranged
Reality in rainbows
The war of voids grew faint
Desires finally conjured
The space between the estranged
Reversed humanity's rapture
When you took my hand
The liberty was yours
Once again- I stand
Intentions are pure
There's no secrets behind secrets
And no shadows of shadows
You're sincerity's advocate
Making promises that will forever echo
You rained through me
So the petals of my soul bloomed
I created an infinite dream
Where I'm always beside you
Your breath reincarnates memories
Afloat on the passions of yesterday
Tasting the mercy of serenity
As you immerse me with your gaze
The lightlessness that once existed
Sparked with purpose
The darkness was finally lifted
No longer remorseless
The waves of loneliness subsided
The light from your eyes
