i'm a Poet searching for lies and contradictions

I'm a poet trying to strip away my masks and put others on

laptops, mural walls, the waters of your heart, the waters of my soul

looking for love without limits and also to see if I can break

That inspire children to start baby revolutions

baby fist higher and purer in the air

i want children to write true anthems for real nations

i want chldren to

I'm a poet eracism
