it is kinda lengthy and the title should tell you a lot! but brace yourself!!


Contradictions



We live in a time period where we like replicas,
but we don’t like cloning.
We despise thieves, but we desire burning.
We don’t like education, but we like learning.
In certain circumstances lying is legal.
Where death by bullet is becoming a norm to
the people.
Murders are justified.
Dead bodies in war are curing, yet intimacy with
same sex is sickening.
Our health is not necessary, but our wealth is
needed.
Indeed we need religion, but only call to God in
severe situations.
Pagan thoughts are hated, but Halloween is
celebrated.
Percentages of people’s cultures are dilated, but
faces behind the creations are discriminated. S.P.C.A shows concern when animals are
neglected
Yet the issue with zoo imprisonment is still
respected.
We strike on premeditative thoughts on the
terroristic man.
But we stride pass the thoughts of the Ku Klux
Klan.
We strive for equality by wanting minority rights. While trying to solve problems by causing fights. Facts to reinforce facts, without them one won’t
believe.
Sex before marriage is sinful, but who married
Adam and Eve.
People prevaricate, yet they yearn for the truth. We boast about being the best country,
showing our arrogance.
And now we try to prevent the incoming of
immigrants.
In this expensive land of the free.
Free to say whatever you please with the
possibility of persecution.
Your right to vote is irrelevant regardless of the
constitution.
Contradictions!
Is what really makes the world go round. Discrepancies in historical facts.
In fact, Columbus discovered the world isn’t flat. Overlooking the outside evidence that dates
back.
Some black people portray that they’re fond of
the way of MLK.
But only come together as one on his birthday. Everyday many are hearing the words of Tupac
Shakur.
But only a few listen.
To most they’re a blur.
Blinded by the money tree that grows from the
marsh and mush.
Yet we cut it down just to sprout another Bush. Bullshit is fed to our children coated with sugar. Our offspring are inevitable, so why do we
destroy their future.
Fibs at birth, “you have the same opportunity to
become president.”
Pursuing that path is perplexing if you’re born in
a poor resident.
You’re looked down upon if gambling is your
addiction
But you’re looked up to if the stock market is a
profession.
Through prostitution you get infections
But from a male or female escort all you receive
is infatuations.
Sleep depravations just to live in a dream.
Don’t live in an illusion because not everything’s
what it seems.
It seems patriotism flows in the political
representatives in power.
But you only see their cattle on battlefields
getting devoured.
Devastation of our dwelling emanates hostility. But desolation of mother earth gets no
sympathy.
It’s sad my nigga, but nigga don’t let them call
you a “nigger” son.
But as long as we keep calling each other nigga,
we’ll still continue to be one.
Too many people want to be happy, but no one
wants to be gay.
All guys are dogs, but not gal’s a bitch.
We’re the same genus species, but just bark at
a different pitch.
A witch’s spell is unspoken, yet everyone seems
to curse.
I disabled my tactile senses to touch many in
this poetic verse.

That part kinda lost me......couldn't quite grasp the rhythm and rhyme there...

The rest of it.....flawless! I am very impressed with it! To put so much mind into artform...that shows talent.

this was a tight! Just that one place needs attention.

  THese lyrics came with a purpose. You really had your ironies and view of the world depicted perfectly. We have the same views it seems. Your rhymes were good and creative.
There are a lot of quotable lines in this piece. I can't wait to read more of your work.

Sincerely
SINceer

  WEll Devon, I think this is a fine write and portait of not only the American way of thought, but the universal way as well. Hypocrisy and contradictions are as you have pointed out, just another way of life. I've come to realize that "world peace" is like "love", everyone has a different perception of it, therefore I sense in our lifetime, it will never come to be. Heck, we are just no beginning to speak and contemplate the contradictions and hypocrisies you write about here...we have a long way to go before they are resolved, and I am sure I wont be around then. I still and forever will believe that a man loving a man SEXUALLY is wrong. I wont dispute that. *shrugs* Therefore, if the worldwide concensus says that is o.k., there will be at least one person saying it isnt (me) and the world wont be at "peace". Loving the same sex is one thing, but having sex with the same sex is another thing thats just wrong. There is a reason why a certain "hole" in a humans body is intended for exit only, to get rid of the waste.
Ever heard that old saying that "Blood is just Freedoms stain"? So many different clicks believe that their way is THE WAY and some believe it enough to shed blood over it, ya know? Then they have the balls to say killing is wrong. I could go on and on, but...this comment has gone on long enough.
Thanks for sharing!
