CONCRETE CONFINEMENT

I place my deepest thoughts on this paper, hoping somebody reads it.
Put my life out there like a spectacle, hoping somebody sees it.
I envision all the tension not shown on television.
People struggling to the end to just wind up at the beginning.
The whole world needs an intervention.
See my brother as an ally instead of competition.
I’ve been blessed with a world of flaws.
A world with many closed doors for you and yours living life poor.
Shots in the air, empty shells on the floor.
How can our country go to Iraq with these internal wars.
Racism, fascism, the blacks the hell with them.
That’s the words from the mouth of these government dogs.
Would you life your life for nothing?
Or would you die for a cause?
I see lives lost everyday.
, over bitches, weed, and Alize.
Even heard one about a video game.
It use to be bitches, Jordan’s and cocaine.
Before that bitches, heroin and gold chains.
For a food stamp now get a slug to the brain.
There’s no signs of a hero.
There’s no signs of a change.
We must be self productive if we wish to sustain.

I'm Rolando, I also go by the poet name SkyBlack some of my work is available for viewing in the Penman lounge. FreestyleVision has given me an opportunity to express myself more, outside of the poetry. This Biography is difficult to write, I’m content on writing about almost anything but when it comes to myself I sometimes draw blanks. I’ll start of by telling my origins. I’m from New York (the best city known to man) and I still reside there today. I love music, art and of course writing. I’m a big horror film fanatic and even though this is so, my favorite movie right now is Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street. Not a true horror film, more like a gory musical, but one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. A true classic. I just saw this movie for the first time like two weeks ago and already watched it like eight times. But besides all that I’m just a average guy writing my thoughts and hoping the world enjoys what my mind concocts.
