I Gave It All Up

I Gave It All Up

Muzzling truth for a falsified sense of security, no more slumbering realizing this purpose is more than me,

(I gave it all up)

Uncovering the fallacy like “this is what we are born to be”,

(I gave it all up)

Manufactured to be denied section eight but to be granted house warming’s from state penitentiaries

(I gave it all up)

like being taunted by the memories,

(I gave it all up)

like accepting genocide for normalcy,

(I gave it all up)

Like duck taping wounds with co- dependency,

(I gave it all up)

To speak excellence with fluency

(I gave it all up)

Choking down fragments of generational curses,

(I gave it all up)

Because clearing the fabricated charges against my melanin was worth it

(I gave it all up)

Because we rise to mountain highs so perfect

(I gave it all up)

Because we rise to mountain highs so perfect
