The Happy Slaves

I am a black person
living in America.
I’m not African American,
so I don’t belong to
that mislabeled group.

Everything is fueled
by the race war.

I thought we were all free,
for the most part,
not prisoners or slaves.

But we’re more prisoners and slaves
to society now than ever before
due to our lack of knowledge.

Our minds are confused
and trapped behind
those invisible bars

we cannot see.
