BODY BAG
Monster

I FEEL DEAD. I
LOST MY HEAD. I
KNOW IT’S REAL. I
SHOULDN’T STEAL. I
LOSE FAITH. I
HAVE HATE. I
GOT INSIDE. I
WON’T GET OUT ALIVE.

inspired by Gwindolyn Brooks
Did you hear of the lotus
that emerged out of water?
proving, beauty can come of slaughter,
learned to grow without help,
learned to suffer without a yelp.
long live the lotus that drowned with life,
long live the flower that came from it's hide.

inspired by Tupac Shackur
