forgiveness isn’t for me. it’s to help you feel better.
somewhere in there, i can hear my insides wailing. groaning with distress .. ..
watching my body break, my muscles contract, my soul contort.
why didn’t uze help me ..
what was so awful about me that uze couldn’t
See .. Act.
ignoring the most basic of humanities ..
how could uze.
How. Could. Uze.
you could see the demon. & ignore it’s actions.
you didn’t just let it live, you let it thrive.
wouldn’t have thought that it’d be so hard.
but so far.
a different kind of fuckery.
& not to take away from the good shit thats been happening.
but holy shit balls.
i dunno even what month we in.
& its been a fucked up ride so far.
with your thoughts
with your dreams
with your wishes
with bright eyes
with a radiance of hope
dare not hope
dare not shine
dare not wish
dare not dream
dare not think
read between the mother fucking lines
youre only good for a fuck
finished licking the ringhole
of the pakeha yet?
still think they have your best
interests at heart?
they never did.
and they never will.
just like a rapist
their intent is not what it appears.
they have not
tendency toward equality.
they are here to take.
and take violently.
