Black Earth




Black Earth

When the darkness has humanity set in submission
I could feel my body resign
From a fight that’s been within this whole time
I recoil in reaction into the pocket of girl
Who is seriously rethinking her approach
Maybe we will survive this apocalypse of violence
And live among the roaches and the dirt?

There has to be more men and woman to keep this afloat
We need a resurgence of awareness
Of how our words and language
Perpetuate violence against the woman of this world
What do we leave behind?
What do we hope to find, when we allow each other to be
Examples of wisdom instead of following the ignorant down to their feet

When you don’t speak out you are supporting ignorance
When you don’t speak up you are then silenced
Ever thought, what is happening can’t be changed?
Ever thought, what is is all that remains?
I say absolutely not, let’s give it a shot
With love and solidarity

Black Earth, Black Earth
Before it gets better, it’s surely getting worse
Black Earth, Black Earth
Your need and greed, manipulation it’s a curse
Black Earth
