any longevity?

“…because you figure/you gonna older/way longer/than you gonna be younger.”

make sure to get copies of medical records
from here going forward tragic irony

brown people have Vitamin D deficiency
when our skin naturally absorbs the most sun

migrated to places where soul is frozen
every breath used to warm up the inside

provide oxygen to bring words outside
we have given ourselves unhealthy habits

in a quest to find original tribe
how can the blood be fine
when after a shower still feel dirty

are we worthy of prosperous dreams
needing to move nihilism

trapped in our own prisons
won’t release brothers
rather slowly bleed than heal leaking wounds

call that love
when you would light a dub
but wouldn’t break bread for some grub

get you in the club
but won’t shield you from a stomp or slug

am I my brother’s reaper
feeding him poison instead of power

getting saucy is sweet
but better when brain is all sour

hard to build a nation
when you can’t lay enough bricks to construct

non cipher negativity
leaves you ready to self destruct

reluctant to realize until pitiful gritty
run in front of everywhere you can’t run from

objective opinion declaring truth about your dominion
why do you let your holy temple be scarred and tagged

faded murals in your lungs
leaving mausoleum for memories

waiting to be resurrected and remembered
from a gaseous graveyard

hope floats along
a clogged up tapon
flowing through palpitations in Corazon

love takes 3 day weekends there occasionally
but no longer because stress made the rent too high

brain been occupied by youthful fantasies
that will never come true

too lazy to argue
just sulk and lean
until sunset drops on forgettable dreams

still clinging underneath eyelids
curious if you just peek

will motivate the muscles atrophied by inaction
towards experiencing the satisfaction of redefinition

witnessed up close manifested a miracle
hunger irresistible

convincing you something must
be happening
with that lump in your jaw
