Classism

The more money you have, the more
opportunities you have presented to you
on a platter. The less you have, the more
others look down on you for not being born
with a silver spoon in your mouth
—it’s an equal-opportunity world.

Weak Mentalities

There are no stupid people—I don’t believe
in that notion; honestly, people’s mentalities are
weak, their thoughts are used as ammunition
against them, the devil is after their minds,
and that’s where they fall short, unconsciously
giving him access. Hence, they underperform
and make poor decisions based on
their circumstances and experiences;
they respond to life’s curveballs confused.

Hot Poison

Consumed with the rage
shooting from my tongue and the rage
burning deep within my heart, I felt
my life slipping away, and I didn’t know how
to stop the hate
running through my veins like hot poison
dripping from every crevice of my body.

Positive Thinking

I am rebuilding my mind; blinded by
the devil intertwined in his lies; he’s no fool
defined by his deception confined to his
limiting beliefs; I’ve been carrying out his cruel
assignments, there’s been a huge disconnection
game over, the party’s over
I am committed to consistent positive thinking.

Morning Depression

The conversation in my head begins
even before I open my eyes; I do
my best to fight the need to stay
nestled tight in bed. Resting all-day sounds
like a brilliant plan; I’m all for a lazy day.

Depression wiggled in, slick rick coming through,
but I cannot give in; it’s a beautiful day out
I see the sun peeping through my curtains
—automatic mood brightener—
hopeful, “I can do this.” I securely plant
my feet on the ground, winning another round
depression loses.
