My torch can only do so much to circumvent

The social barriers you so easily embrace

To wed conformity, clipping your wings

Content with landing, expecting 

Foreign entities to find keys

For gates, your mind is geared

To design – the uncharted spaces that fasten 

The makings of your understanding.

Ripples.

Watch how my words, written and spoken

Bypass the threshold of their perception,

Ink percolates, causing much-needed ripples

Between those that love or hate me;

Passive dissection and re-arranging, within my radius

I don’t wait for harmony,

I make room for it.

Harmony

Unapologetic.

Intertwined with the movement,

Liken me to a lightning rod, stationed

On this side of the cosmos, receptive to divine energies,

Power that would, in a second, fry the light bulb

Filament; your idea, left in a crisp

Assuming you’ll ever be better than me.

 

And when they say we don’t belong here, 

I couldn’t agree more, Backstory richer than Mansa Musa

Melanated Kings and Queens,

Rich in body and mind, were not made to dwell here,

One by one, Extracting them from this world,

For this prison, is not our home.

 

Your approval to me, as useful as a bonfire on the sun

Just a small dust cloud I vacuum, repackage

And send back to you;

I’m polite that way.

 

Multi-faceted champion, diamond,

Swerving an exodus through landmines

The floodlights don’t blind us, 

Rays serve as a reminder of our many sides;

Sides you try to hide, from the brain-washed

But it’s only a matter of time…

Watch this space.

Allow me room, in my Elseworld space

When I become one with, the golden thread,

Piercing the needle’s eye; knowledge and pen I conduct

To work in sequence, I sew pieces together like cloth

Pattern and tune of the stitch,

Relative to recipients.
