I Am The Word

And these words of mine,
Seem to break the mind,
With my hands in bind,
Trying to lead the blind
Through a minefield.
Yet I am locked and caged

With time to unwind,
Or better yet, rewind
The verbs and past tense
Of line after line
Of cocaine metaphors,
They hit the floor,
Blind to the signs

That read yield.
No,
I will not cease and disperse,
Because your purse,
Is filled with the curse
Of my forefathers, from
Whipped backs that spilt
The blood of their forefathers
Don’t bother

Calling me brother,
When it is my history
That you smother,
And replace, and connect
To the underside of yours,
This notion I reject.

Because these words of mine,
Will break your mind,
And give me the keys to unbind,
The scraps of cloth that
Leaves justice blind.
I know that you are waiting

For the next rhyme,
And I must leave you in due time.
As for right now,
No words need to match
The sounds of bullet holes,
For I am holier than thou.

I am more ancient than the book genesis,
And my rivers flow deeper,
And gave more life than six days of divinity.
I don’t rest on the seventh.
I do not care for the revisions,
Nor do I speak for those that
Wrote such a classical fiction.

I gave birth to the blood in your veins.
I gave birth to the fire,
And cradled its ember’s.
I gave birth to the chase,
And made the rivers run.
I gave birth to the constellations,
Behind your eyes.
I gave birth to the tongues,
That speak my name.
Yet I am the one,
Whose fate is decided by you.
