We Are

We are roses from the concrete
Bold and stone faced rolled on the granite of oppression
We are steam from the volcanic ash
caustic and dangerously hot, bathed in lava
We are surreal and temperamental
Politically dysfunctional, dismissal of your excuses
We are fully intentional always directional
We are the blade of that lonely grass
Nature’s slow destruction
Here to break through your concrete sidewalks
taking away your well guarded agendas
We are roses from the concrete

We are the pilots of your aircrafts
Blinded by the distance between us
And the acid rain showers down upon our structure
While you mimic the pretense
With assurances of its non existence
the instruments no longer differentiate between latitude or gratitude
We have already been assigned our faith
Knowing there will be no one to greet us at the gate
We are the meek
Having long let loose our option for our inheritance
And if heaven should prove us wrong
Yours will be the eye for an eye we take
When all around us you continue the truth to forsake
We are the pilots of your aircrafts

We are stone hard hearts
With nothing left to bleed far less to die for
Your cruel years have dried us of all tears
We are the assumptions you made the blades of your share
And nothing can antagonize us
For we have traveled the long journey of your rejection
We have no more need for reflection
The mirrors are all broken and the memories we keep
Are but the falsehoods you speak

We are without the need of hope
that only disguises the bitterness that we’ve been fed to cope
Our crisis it seems was nothing more than a joke
Now suddenly you are all ok with revenues from dope
We are the roses from the concrete, pilots of your crafts,
the stone cold hearts that will finally disembowel you part by part
