I

by Blackbird

Pain.

Pain.

Pain.

Each time I say it my stomach smiles a bit.

Deep breath.

In

Release

You can't speak your truth in Amerikkka.

Whatever you say, can and will be held against you. So here I am. 24. No pain.

Noooo, pain. No.

I saw a wave go by saying its "cool" to be

"crazy." Yah. Pop pills 4 that shit cause its legal.

(silence)

Whatever you say, can and will be held against you.

If I get better at surviving, am I a powerful being, or an over-worked niggah? 

When do i began to thrive?

Now? 

I don't feel...well

I...I. Am. Angry.

"Shhhhhh boy"

Whatever you say, can and will be held against you!

(God Speed)

I am angry, ya'll shot my cousin up with some bad shit. Fuck the - BOOM.

(one shot to the chest)

I saw you die that night. I died 2.
