Poetexts: Change Is Gonna Come

I’m choking on my emotions
Fed up with my abortions
My aborted thoughts…that is
Nevertheless … I’m dying inside cause I can’t find my way out of this
So many times I sit and visualize
I see a better life
My dreams keep hope alive

Angst
Frustration
Damn that procrastination and hesitation cohabitating in my equation
Creating a fallacy of rejection
Detouring me from my destination
My focus lost in the world wide web of deception
Where everything said isn’t as everything goes
Got a sister staying on her toes when I should be on my knees
Praying
Hoping
Believing
Maybe if I just keep the faith my possibilities will turn into my reality
If only it were that easy

See … I’m tired of trying to survive by working this nine-to-five
Bringing home just enough to make my ends meet
And in the process I’m losing more and more of me
It’s hard to get up in the morning since I lost my focus
Gotta put in 40 hours a week at a job fathered by hocus-pocus
Lies, lies, and more lies
Breakable promises leaving me unconscious to my own consciousness

There’s got to be a way out
My change has got to come
But until that change comes I have to change me
Got to realize that I is I and I is me
God equipped me with what I need to be free
So let me tune out the blatant electric waves of negativity
Change my thoughts and channel my frequency to a station of positivity
One day at a time I’ll regain my sanity
