Revolutionaries seem to be that of color
Black
Brown
Whatever you are
But if you are white
Then you have no right to complain
You are white
Caucasian
Cracker
Gringo
Life is easy for you
You got all the money
Right....?
Wrong!
I am talking about the lost warriors of literary battle fields
The artists whose parents said goodbye to
The drop outs told to grow up
The lost souls given to the work force to figure it out
Who is here to speak of you?
Who is wondering will you make it?
I know this feeling like a tattoo from birth
If I was ever found to have grown up recite my poems to me
If I were ever to wear a tie, steal it from me
And if I am ever to put my pen down from paper and shout out
Show me the ground
